  • FPE Newsletter for the week ending 2/15/19

    Dear Parents and Families, 

    It's been important to me and our FPE Site Council that we ensure multiple pathways for parent engagement within and outside of the student day.  To that end, when our school committees met on Tuesday, I was so glad to know we had parents joining our TAG and Literacy Teams; when our Equity team meets next, we'll have parents joining our staff as collaborators in deepening our learning of culturally responsive teaching practices. 

    THANK YOU to all our parent volunteers who work with teachers, parent leaders, and me.  Parent engagement is one of the most important elements of school success.  Take a moment and read our Upcoming Events list and the messages from Dr Martini and Miss Lizzie, below.  

    And, please take a moment to read and respond to the PPS Successful Schools Survey (see links below).  Your feedback is important to me, our school leaders, and our district leadership.  Over the last few weeks we've given 5th graders time to participate in the student version of this survey.  Soon, our school faculty and staff will participate in another iteration.  As PPS works with multiple stakeholders in a visioning process, feedback from YOU is vital in our next steps together.  

    There's much more going on in the land of Forest Park.  Read on below for all the latest from our community.

    Warmly, 
    Lisa Newlyn, 
    Principal

    PPS Successful Schools Survey: 
    Family Feedback




    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Thank you so much for participating in our annual Successful Schools Family Survey. Your responses will help your school understand your experience and use them to set goals and plan for next year. The survey will cover topics on school safety, school climate, barriers to family engagement, and how well your school fits your student’s needs. Please be honest and thoughtful, and take your time to read and respond to the questions.

    Please visit the link below on a computer, tablet, or smartphone and select the school your child attends. If you do not have access to a computer or internet, please contact your school office so we can provide a way for you to take the survey. Thank you so much for your time and feedback!

  • Key date for immunizations is coming up

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    The recent outbreak of measles serves as a reminder about immunizations, with an important deadline coming up.

    Students in Portland Public Schools who have not gotten all of their required immunizations face a Wednesday, Feb. 20 deadline. That is the “exclusion date” set by the state for 2019, when any student who is not fully immunized may be barred from attending classes or district-provided child care.
