    Is your student in need of pants, shirts, shoes, jackets, sleepwear or other clothing? The Portland Council PTA Clothing Center can help.  We offer new and used items for children.

    To use the Clothing Center, obtain a "Clothing Center Referral Form" from the school office. This form is required to be able to use the Clothing Center.  
    Bring the form (and your student if possible, but not required) to the center during business hours, Monday or Thursday school days from 10:00am -1:00pm, September through the end of April.  Families can access the closet twice a year.  The Center is located at the Marshall HS Campus, 3905 SE 91st Ave, Room B-60

  • SMART Reading at MLK School

    Reading is a vital foundation for educational and life success, and it must start early!

    Reading is the gateway to learning, opening doors to faraway adventures, new possibilities and promising futures. Without strong reading skills, children will face a host of difficult challenges throughout their lives. That’s why we know that reading matters. And that’s why SMART helps thousands of Oregon children each year develop the self-confidence, enthusiasm and motivation they need to read and succeed.

    On Wednesday, students across the nation chose to speak out on the issue of school safety.

We should all listen.The horrific mass shootings that have taken student lives in recent years have provoked an incredibly important dialogue and created a valuable “teachable moment” for all of us.
