    Summer is Coming! And so is Our First Annual Summer Pool Party!

    Come join all your Hayhurst and Odyssey friends for Popcorn, Popsicles and Fun in the Sun.  We have reserved Wilson pool from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m. on Sunday July 16th.  All are welcome!  We have room for 50 swimmers in the pool.  Each spot is only $10.  If you just want to hang out on the deck, come on by.  There is no charge for that.  Please remember though, all Portland Parks and Rec rules apply.

    Children that are non-swimmers and/or under 48” must not be left unattended on the pool deck, and must be accompanied by an adult at all times in the water

    We have several ways for you to join the fun:
    Sign up on the website when you purchase your Auction tickets.  If you can’t make the auction but still want to swim you can just buy a spot(s) here too.
    OR
    Sign up with your name as a placeholder on the Party Boards which will be hanging in each school very soon.  We will add your spot(s) to your auction night tally.
    OR
    Sign up with your bidder number the night of the auction.
    If we sell out all 50 spots before Auction night, we can open up more.  The more the merrier.  It’s a big pool!

    Thank you.

    Message from the Weekly Food Bag Team

    This Friday (June 9) will be our last food bag for the school year. We wanted to take a moment to give a big Thank you to everyone who has helped this year. It has been great to be able to do them at school right after drop-off. We plan to continue with that same timing for next year, hope to see you there.

    If you have any extra cloth grocery bags you gather over the summer please save them and bring them to us in the Fall.

    We also wanted to send out a HUGE thank you to Osha Roller. She started the food bag program 3 years ago and has been coordinating it since then. Her daughter is moving on to Middle School next year so she won’t have kids at Hayhurst, we will miss her greatly!

    Thanks again!

     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?
