  • Welcome Back to School

    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 classrooms, 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.

    ONLY 6th graders will attend school on Wednesday, August 30th so that we are able to provide a more thorough 6th-grade orientation.  Having 6th graders by themselves for one day will provide a smoother, less stressful transition to middle school. 
     
    There is NO School for 7th and 8th graders on Wednesday, August 30th. Seventh and 8th graders will start school the following day, Thursday, August 31st.
  • Lane Is an AVID School

    What does that mean?

    That means that we are using AVID strategies and goals to prepare all of our students to graduate from high school prepared to apply to a college or career program. We are focusing on organization, determination and proven study and learning strategies to support our students towards success. 

    If you would like more information about AVID and how to support your student, contact Ms. Valent at lvalent@pps.net.

    Stay tuned for an upcoming AVID school event to learn more.

    Dear Lane Middle School Parents and Guardians,

    It is with great honor and anticipation that I welcome you to the 2016/17 school year as the new principal of Lane Middle School.  First, I wanted to provide you with some information about my background.  I come to Lane with a wide range of educational experience, with 24 years as a teacher and administrator at the middle and high school level, including seven years teaching overseas in Venezuela and Turkey.  I joined Portland Public Schools in 2006, with five years as a teacher and administrator for a literacy program called Striving Readers, and five years as the vice principal of Benson High School.  At Benson, I oversaw the implementation and expansion of the AVID program, and I am very excited to work to strengthen the AVID program at Lane.

    During the past two months, I have had many conversations with Lane parents, teachers, students, and community members.  From these interactions, it has become clear to me that there is a desire for a strong partnership between the school, families, and neighbors, to come together and provide the best possible academic experience for Lane students. The Lane family and community involvement I have witnessed so far has convinced me that the 2016/17 school year is destined to be a year of collaboration, joy, and positive growth for all of us.

    Lane has assembled an excellent team of dedicated teachers and support staff who are committed to providing Lane students with academic experiences that are relevant, rigorous, and build strong relationships. This commitment to learning enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in an affirming, joyous, and encouraging environment.

    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 meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  You can learn more about the PTA by visiting their webpage here, or by emailing lanepdxpta@gmail.com.
