  • Secretary's Farewell

    Dear Glencoe friends,

    It is with a very heavy heart that I share the news that this will be my final year as your Glencoe secretary.  I have enjoyed the last 8 years (as staff) and another 7 as a parent volunteer!  Over those 15 years I have seen six Principals, a handful of custodial staff, four secretaries, so many great teachers retire, and many awesome new staff join us. And Melissa in the kitchen has been here the entire time too!

    It is time for me to step away from PPS  (my sons are out of school now) and no longer be beholden to the school calendar.  I plan on focusing my energy on my extended family, my health, a possible home remodel and maybe some adventurous travel.  Eventually I will return to the workforce in some capacity since I go crazy with too much time on my hands.

    It has really been an honor working here with such great staff, families and all the kiddos who I will truly miss.  If you see me around the neighborhood or at a Timbers match, be sure to wave and say hi!

    With love and gratitude,

    Carolyn Carr  (aka.Miss Carolyn, Ms. Carolyn, Mrs. Carr, etc. etc.)

  • Dear Glencoe Families,

    I hope this past week treated you well and you were able to enjoy some time with your kiddo(s) who were off from school. 

    Now that we are officially into the spring season, I hope we start to see more sunshine and dry weather. Our annual Run for the Arts is scheduled for Friday, April 27th.   Students will receive their pledge sheets THIS Wednesday and can start collecting pledges (no money yet, just the promise to pay).  Last year we ran on our “rain date”, had to change the run route and still ended up running in the rain. We are hoping for a drier day AND lots of volunteers!!  Please look for your child’s pledge form in their backpack so they can get started collecting pledges right away.

    We have a few retirements occurring at the end of this year.  Mrs. EFB, Mrs. Schneider-Barnes and Mr. Tibbetts will be retiring leaving us with some open positions at Glencoe for the 2018-19 school year.  We will be conducting interviews for these open positions after next week and I will let you know once we have completed the hiring process.  As you know, we received additional FTE for next year’s PE program.  Thankfully, I was able to move Mrs. Lile into our full-time position and we will have an experienced PE teacher, Ms. Millie Layman, joining us for the additional 1 day a week from Creative Science.

    Over the next two months, students in grades 3-5 will begin the Smarter Balanced State Assessments in reading and math (& science for 5th grade).  You should hear from your child’s classroom teacher as to the exact dates/times the class will be engaged in the assessments.  If you wish to opt out of this testing situation, you can pick up an opt-out form in the main office.  All forms need to be completed and submitted before Friday, April 13th.  Feel free to direct any testing questions to your child’s teacher, Mary Megivern, substitute school counselor or me. 


    Happy Spring!

    Glencoe Principal

  • Message on April 20 student walkouts

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.

    It’s been 50 years since some impassioned students led the movement to rename their school after Martin Luther King, Jr. Last Friday, the community turned out in force to show appreciation, and to honor Dr. King with a huge celebration at the school.
