  • No One Eats Alone Day!

    National No One Eats Alone Day was Friday, February 9th. During No One Eats Alone Day, we worked together to make sure that no student is sitting or eating by themselves during lunch.  Thanks to the students, Miss Kahrissa, and a number of other staff members for participating in coming up with ideas on how to end social isolation and developing a more inclusive school.

  • Career Technical Education Day

    Recently students at Lane were invited to Franklin High School for an 8th grade Career Technical Education preview day. The program exposed underrepresented female students to high skill, high wage careers such as Computer Science and Coding, Architecture and Drawing, Industrial Technology, and Welding. These are careers where women are underrepresented and the students were able to work on hands on activities such as putting a computer together and connecting it to the internet.

    Dear Lane Middle School Families,

    It is with great honor and anticipation that I welcome you to the 2017/18 school year as the principal of Lane Middle School.  My staff has been hard at work preparing the school, the classroom, and the curriculum to make this year the most positive, productive, and learning-focused school year.

    We have assembled a strong team of teachers and support staff who are committed to providing top-notch instruction that will engage students and build a scholarly, yet joyous community.

    Please be sure to read my weekly newsletter which is distributed via PeachJar and also posted under the PeachJar heading on the left hand side of this webpage.  The newsletter contains important information about upcoming events and our partner organizations.

    Lane has an active parent-teacher association (PTA) and I encourage you to join the PTA and get involved with the many exciting projects they have planned.  Our PTA has worked hard on a project to beautify the Lane Campus.  If you see the school looking spruced up, it is mostly due to their efforts.  The PTA will hold its first meeting on Tuesday, September 19th, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m in the Lane Library.  You can learn more about the PTA by emailing lanepdxpta@gmail.com.

    I am honored to be the principal of Lane Middle School, and look forward to working with you.  I welcome your involvement, so feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns or suggestions to help make 2017/18 the best year yet!
