Pack 254 has Scouting opportunities for girls and boys in Kindergarten through 5th Grade. For the time being all our Pack meetings are on-line, and our Cubs have every opportunity for advancement. During a time when so many other activities are being cancelled, Scouting is even more important than ever…… teaching the four aims of Scouting: citizenship, character, personal fitness, and leadership.

As your principal, I want to write to you all to denounce the acts of hate and violence we have yet again witnessed this week in our country and within the past year. The violence that has occurred to our Asian American community in Atlanta is horrendous and my heart goes out to the friends and families that have lost their mothers, daughters, sisters and friends.
We all must work together to support our Asian American and Pacific Islander students and to help stop the hundreds of years of oppression, racism and violence toward our Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. We must stand together in support of one another and speak out against racism. We also must do our part to report any discriminatory acts, harassment and violence.
As we prepare to return to in-person learning, it’s extremely important for our Asian American and Pacific Islander students to know that they’re coming back to a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment. I love our Hayhurst community and how supportive we are of one another. We will continue to work together to create a warm and welcoming environment for our students and families, one in which everyone feels safe and their voices heard. If hate or racism happens in our community we will take every action necessary to eliminate this behavior.
At Hayhurst Elementary School we will strive to ensure all students and staff are safe from any form of racially charged acts or injustices. If you are aware of any acts of racial abuse, discrimination, hate or injustice reach out to us so we can continue to work together to build a strong, caring, and inclusive community. Please take care of yourselves and your family, and let us know if there is anything we can do to support you. If any of you need supports please feel free to reach out to me, our school counselor Roxanne Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org or our Social Worker Mr. Ryan at email@example.com.
Thank you for standing with our Asian American and Pacific Islander students and families.
Tara M. Bourland, Hayhurst Principal
As Teacher and School Administrator Appreciation Week comes to a close here at Portland Public Schools, I want to share an additional personal note of gratitude to all our hard-working and dedicated professional educators and school leaders. While your commitment to our students is always evident, this past year with all of its challenges was truly unlike any other in our careers. The impact of this pandemic, economic crisis, and racial uprising, has required incredible flexibility, adaptation, and perseverance on your part.
