  • December Newsletter

    Welcome to December!


    It’s hard to believe that the first half of the year is almost over! As we soak up these last two weeks before Winter Break, we want to make sure that we continue to acknowledge the great work that our students are doing.


    This past month, Mr. Robertson, our assistant principal, Mr. Hewett, our physical education teacher, and I participated in “No Shave November” as an incentive for our Jason Lee students. All month students could use their “leopard awards,” which they earn for being safe, respectful, and responsible, to purchase a chance to create a unique beard style for the three of us.


    After hundreds of Leopard Awards, the winning styles were chosen by 3rd grade Vada, 5th grade Hailey and 7th grade Vivian. Congratulations to those students for earning those Leopard Awards!


    The winning styles were fun to wear for a day, but we’re definitely glad to be clean shaven! Great job to every student that earned Leopard Awards this past month, and we can’t wait to continue to celebrate your successes in the semester ahead.


    Don’t forget that December 15th is our Holiday Sing-A-long and the last day of school for the month. We’ll see you in the new year!

    Principal Isaac Cardona

    I am thankful that I get to continue working with the students, staff, and community at Jason Lee K-8, and I am honored that I get to do so as Jason Lee’s new principal.  I originally began my teaching career in Houston, Texas, teaching 7th grade English/Language Arts, but I have had the pleasure of serving in a variety of roles since that time.  I have been an instructional coach, working to coach and develop new teachers, a Dean of Students, Executive Director of an Oregon non-profit, and most recently I served as the Assistant Principal of Jason Lee K-8.  
    My wife, a Portland native, and I have worked as educators for over a decade, working in schools throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, and in Taipei, Taiwan.  This past year we welcomed our first child, so we are excited to settle down in Portland, and to lay strong roots within our community.   I’m originally from New Mexico, where I graduated with degrees in Criminology and English, and I hold a Master’s degree in Public School Administration from the Teacher’s College at Columbia University in New York.  As a first generation college student, I believe that there is nothing more important than a quality education.
    I look forward to working with Jason Lee students, families, and community members for years to come, and I welcome you to stop by my office anytime.

    Hello Jason Lee School students, families, and staff! Words cannot express how enthusiastic I am to serve your rich community.

    My wife and I have called Portland home for the past 11 years. We have two daughters who are both PPS students at Astor School in North Portland. I was born and raised in Virginia. I graduated with a degree in Biology and, afterwards, served in the U.S. Peace Corps as an Environmental Educator. After moving to Portland and working as an animal keeper and youth mentor at the Oregon Zoo, I acquired my Master’s degree from the University of Portland and began my teaching career in PPS. I come to Lee School after having taught in 3rd through 8th grade classrooms and, most recently, supporting students and staff as a School Climate Coordinator at Ockley Green.

    The work I do is driven by a mission to create a caring and safe environment for all students while providing rich opportunities that allow them to reach their fullest potential. I believe that school should be fun, dynamic, and supportive to our students in ways that cultivate life long learners. I feel so fortunate to be part of the Lee team this year as we continue the wonderful work already occurring. I look forward to seeing you in the hallways at school and around the community!
