  • Dear Creston Community,


    First and foremost, I would like to share my gratitude and appreciation for the warm welcome I have received in a very short amount of time here at Creston School. From the reception I’ve received, it is clear that Creston is a place that values community, where school pride lives strong, and where we hold big dreams for our children. I feel privileged to serve you as interim principal, and I promise to give you nothing short of my personal best.


    It is easy to see evidence of Conrad Hurdle’s leadership and the collective investment of the staff and community to keep students as the central focus. I intend to honor and continue Principal Hurdle’s work alongside Creston staff, using Creston’s vision and mission as our common anchor:


    Our Vision…An inclusive community where personal excellence and academic growth meet.


    Our Mission...Creston’s mission is to build a learning community that maximizes each student’s academic, social, and personal growth by fostering student belonging and self-worth while inspiring a love of learning and respect for all.


    I know that with all transitions, there are many questions and an expected level of uncertainty.  I want to reassure you, I am here to support you, our staff, and your children; I care about being as present and responsive as possible. Toward that end, I am moving as quickly as possible through all emails, calls, and messages to address each and every one. At anytime, you can reach me at, or on my work cell @ 971-347-8456. I look forward to meeting and speaking with all of you, and to welcoming your children back to school!


    You will find me greeting children in the front of the school at the beginning and the end of the school day, and you are also invited to attend the Principal Coffee on September 15th at 8:45 am. After school has begun, addition information will be sent from the Creston office around upcoming dates and other relevant information. We intend to make clear and transparent communication a priority.  


    Thank you again for your welcome and support! I am thrilled to be a part of Creston in my interim capacity. We will do great things together!


    Kindest Regards,


    Krista Blovad

    Interim Principal

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.

  • A message about the April 20 National School Walkout Day

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali
    Dear PPS families,
    The topic of school safety will once again be in the national spotlight on Friday, April 20, which has been designated by some groups as National School Walkout Day. The date has significance as the anniversary of the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado. At PPS, we support student-driven conversations and actions to make our schools as safe, welcoming and inclusive as possible. With safety as our top priority, however, we are not able to authorize activities in which students leave campus.

    It’s been 50 years since some impassioned students led the movement to rename their school after Martin Luther King, Jr. Last Friday, the community turned out in force to show appreciation, and to honor Dr. King with a huge celebration at the school.
