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

Principal McCalley and Assistant Principal Williams
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.
A visit by Portland Trail Blazers basketball star Damian Lillard helped ring in the new school year at Roosevelt High School. Lillard appeared at their back-to-school assembly and offered his support, telling students that sometimes it’s all about showing up.
The PPS Board has made it clear that the district supports “dreamers” – students and staff members who were brought to the United States at a young age by immigrant parents.
In a unanimous vote, the board approved a resolution that urges Congress to protect those who fall under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program approved by President Barack Obama.
