     Dear Faubion Families,

    Happy Summer! We hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine and warmer

    weather we have been experiencing. This summer Portland Public School’s staff and

    our construction crews have been hard at work finishing up our new building! The

    question we are asked most often is, “Will the building be ready for students in August?”

    and the answer is a resounding YES! We are so excited to fill this building with our

    magnificent students, great teachers, and our enthusiastic community!

    This year will be filled with amazing Faubion traditions, both old and new! As usual,

    Faubion will hold an Open House on August 29, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

    for families to pick up school supplies, fill out paperwork, and find out who their child’s

    teacher will be. Due to our construction this summer, we will not be mailing home

    packets, and instead families will find out their child’s teacher at Open House. Also, due

    to district changes in Faubion’s 100% free lunch status, we will have a special station

    set up for families to fill out the free and reduced lunch form.

    Following Open House, we will host Grand Opening for Faubion School + Concordia

    University from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on August 29, 2017. We would love for Faubion

    families to attend our formal Grand Opening celebration and help make history as we

    open the new building.

    School will begin the following day, August 30, 2017 for 4th through 8th grade

    students only. From August 30 to September 4, 2017, Faubion PK-3rd grade teachers

    will be conducting Parent-Teacher Home Visits. In the next couple of weeks, families

    with students in PK-3rd grade will be contacted to set up an appointment to meet with

    your child’s teacher. It is up to your family where you would like to meet- your home,

    the library or a local park! This new tradition will help our teachers get to know your

    student and family better before beginning the school year. Our hopes are to grow this

    program to include all students, PK-8th grade in the following years! PK-3rd grade

    students will begin school on September 5, 2017. (All students will attend this day!)

    Faubion’s start time was also shifted this school year in order to accommodate Portland

    Public School District’s transportation needs and increase the number of instructional

    minutes for middle school students. Middle School students (grades 6-8) will attend

    school from 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The first bell will ring at 8:35 a.m. and the tardy bell

    will ring at 8:45 a.m. Students in PK-5th grade will attend school from 9:00 a.m. to

    3:15 p.m. The first bell will ring at 8:50 a.m. and the tardy bell will ring at 9:00 a.m.

    Elementary students who ride the bus or come to school with a middle school sibling

    may arrive between 8:35-8:45 a.m. More information to come!

    Also, just a reminder that Faubion families voted to have a “standard dress” requirement

    for students. This will begin this fall. More information about Faubion’s Standard Dress

    requirement may be found at: https://www.pps.net/domain/4388

    I am very excited about this next chapter for Faubion School! I am proud to work

    alongside you, and admire your commitment to the Bulldog Community! See you in a

    few weeks!

    Yours in Bulldog Pride,

    Principal McCalley and Assistant Principal Williams
