This week finished with our first round of tutorials. Students are expected to utilize the time to visit their teachers for support. Students were very productive and we are excited by the turnout. Next week, is a big week for us. Homecoming is a special time for us each year but more so this year with our return to this neighborhood. We will celebrate homecoming with the club faire, assembly, game and dance. With homecoming events and Back to School Night it is really feeling like we are now moving into fall.
Hope to see you at these events!
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.

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.
