  • School Supplies for the 2-17-2018 School Year

    School wide, we are moving away from itemized school supply lists. Instead, we are asking families to contribute a flat rate to the school for us to purchase all of our needed school supplies. The school can purchase items at our district corporate rate, in bulk, getting exactly what we need—this will allow us to save money and eliminate a lot of waste.

    ALL STUDENTS (K-5):
    We are asking that each family contribute $50 per student to Lewis School by check or cash. To pay with a credit card, go to our SchoolPay website: https://www.pps.net/Page/3528.  The link is also on the left side bar of this website.  When paying on SchoolPay, please be sure to pay for your school supplies and the kinder canvas bags with the item titled Office: School Supplies, NOT the individual teacher.  Thank you!

    STUDENTS ENTERING KINDERGARTEN:
    In addition to the $50 flat rate contribution, every kindergarten student should bring the following with them on the first day of school (September 5th):
    headphones (not earbuds) in a Ziploc bag with child’s name on the bag
    $10 for a canvas bag (please do not buy a backpack).
    **If paying by check, please write one check for the combined total of $60. 

    STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 1-5:
    In addition to the $50 flat rate contribution, every 1st-5th grade student should bring the following with them on the first day of school (August 30th):
    backpack (one big enough to hold a coat)
    headphones (not earbuds) in a Ziploc bag with child’s name on the bag

    If any of the above presents a financial hardship for your family, please let Tracy in the School Office know. We are happy to work with your family to ensure that your child will have everything s/he needs to start the year.

    Please contact the School Office at 503-916-6360 or email Tracy at tgiordano@pps.net if you have any questions.
    Thank you!

Principal's
Message

  • Welcome back to what promises to be a fabulous new year at Lewis!

     

    I am thrilled to be joining the Lewis community this year as principal. In my conversations with parents, students, teachers, and staff last spring, I learned that Lewis is a community that values kindness, creativity, social justice, and learning opportunities that support all children. I also learned that Lewis staff place high and sincere value on partnerships with families. I feel fortunate to be leading in a community whose values so closely match my own.

     

    My primary goal in my first year at Lewis is to get to know our staff, our families, and our children. This in mind, in addition to the many family events and traditions already in place at Lewis, I have added a monthly “Coffee Talk with Emily” to the calendar. These morning events will be open sessions for families that would like to come ask questions or share ideas. I also want to make clear that ongoing open communication with families is a priority for me. You can expect that I will use our School Messenger system, Facebook, and Twitter to share information regularly. And, I hope that you will feel comfortable sharing questions, concerns, and ideas with me as they arise. I can be reached via email (eglasgow@pps.net) or phone and am committed to responding to family inquiries within 24 hours. You can also feel free to pop in if you’re in the building!

     

    As we move toward the opening of the school year, I want to put a few back-to-school dates and events on your radar--I hope you’ll mark your calendar and join us when you can!

    I am looking forward to a terrific year together!

     

    Emily Glasgow, Principal
