SOPHOMORES: All sophomores will be taking the PSAT exam on Oct. 11. NO PRE-REGISTRATION or fees are required. Information about this test will be in your English classes later this month.
I am looking forward to meeting the parent(s)/guardian(s) of our Cleveland High School students during Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 13th.
We will have a short program in the auditorium which begins at approximately 6:05 pm with our award winning Pep Band and the ClevelanDAIRES. You will have an opportunity to meet our administrative team, counselors, representatives from the PTA, School Foundation, and several other important individuals who work hard to make CHS a great school!
You will begin to tour your child's classrooms and meet their teachers at 6:40 pm. We will have copies of your student's schedule at the school and you can also use ParentVUE to look up your child's schedule.
I want to hear from parents/guardians and I hope you will attend with or without your student! As the new principal of Cleveland, I would like to hear what is going well for your student(s), answer your questions, and hear about what Cleveland can do differently, if anything, to support your child.
I'm excited to meet the families of the brilliant and courageous young people that our school serves. See you Wednesday, Sept. 13th!!

Today the Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted to approve the contract that authorizes outside legal counsel Amy Joseph Pedersen of Stoel Rives to engage Bob Weaver and Joy Ellis of the law firm Garvey Schubert Barer to lead the investigation into the Mitch Whitehurst matter and provide recommendations to strengthen district policies, practice and procedures for employee complaints and misconduct as it relates to students. Norm Frink, retired Multnomah County Chief Deputy District Attorney with over 35 years as a public prosecutor and experience in the Portland region, will also be on the team.
On Saturday, September 16, dozens of PPS staff and volunteers fanned-out across Portland to knock on doors and reach out to students who have disconnected from school. These door-knockers invited students back to school and offered resources to help them re-engage with their education.
Architectural Digest picked Roosevelt High School as one of the most beautiful high schools in the nation. According to the story, “while many high school buildings might be rather bland from a design perspective, there are others that are veritable works of art.”
The honor comes as crews are putting finishing touches on a full modernization of the school, thanks to a voter-approved bond.
