  • Principal’s Notes

    WE ARE MOVING.  Just two short years ago, I said the same thing.  It is finally time to move home to a new and fabulous building.  Thank you so much for all your continued support in this adventure at Marshall.  This building has served us well, as it will for Grant.  We are packing up, movers are coming on Monday,  and our days are going too quickly.  The year seemed to slip by and now we are in full steam to ready for the fall.  Some key dates to have on your calendar:  The building will be in transition and shared with Grant for the month of June. Contact will the public will be as close to the dates listed but we are still a little in flux.  We will be closed and moving from the Marshall site from June 30th through July 10th.   We will be available through phone and email ONLY beginning July 11th.  The public will not  have access to the new building until August 14th when the classified staff returns and registration begins.  Please make note of the opening festivities and check our website frequently for updates.  See the new information sheet from the Bond office attached.

    Student schedules are being reviewed by counselors and will be sent to you in the mail.  Information on adjustments will be included with the schedule.  Please make all efforts to be at registration as this will be our time to introduce students to their building.  Counselors will be returning shortly after to work on schedules prior to the first day of school and to enroll new students.


    It has been a great year, exhausting in reality but none the less productive and successful.  Thanks to our wonderful staff, dedicated students, and always supportive community we are ready, really ready to take on the next challenge. 

    Have a safe and restful summer.

  • Summer Scholars: Hard Duty, High Reward

    Check your common perceptions of summer school at the door.  Because at Benson High School, the site of PPS’s Summer Scholars program, the sheer numbers, structure and atmosphere is not what you’d expect.
  • Interviews under way for PPS superintendent

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS staff and families,

    The search and recruitment for our new superintendent is well underway.

    The community, board and search firm recommended more than 40 educational leaders for consideration. The search firm and the Board reviewed the prospects and candidates and the Board selected a diverse group with deep educational experience to interview. They included individuals from within and outside Oregon, current superintendents as well as senior education leaders from large districts.

  • Meet Yousef Awwad

     Yousef Awwad, Interim PPS Superintendent

    From a remote town in Jordan to leading Oregon’s biggest school district

    At the age of 5, Yousef Awwad joined his older brothers in the streets of Ghweria, Jordan, a small city outside Zarqa, to sell sesame candies and balloons to keep food on his family’s table.

    Yousef’s dad was serving in the Jordan military and was stationed in an area of the desert so remote that he wasn’t able to send money home while he was deployed.

    Today, Yousef is serving as the new interim superintendent of the largest school district in Oregon. How did a boy living in poverty in a remote town in Jordan wind up here?

  • Board hears update on superintendent search

    The new PPS Board of Education held its first regular meeting Tuesday to discuss the search for a permanent superintendent and hear from a community group about the future of Tubman Middle School.
