Art teachers in Portland Public Schools don’t just teach – many are artists in their own right. Four PPS teachers were among the 30 educators from Oregon selected to have their work displayed at the “Teachers as Artists – After the Demo” exhibition currently on display at the Maryhill Museum of Art in Goldendale, Wash.
Since 1963, the PTA Clothing Closet has operated out of Portland Public Schools and is legendary among other West Coast PTAs for its organization and number of students it clothes each year. Last year the Clothing Closet served over 1,600 students, and those numbers climb higher as families face financial crises.
