A Message from Principal Pam
Final arrangements are being made to bring aboard our Educational Assistants. We hope to have the join us VERY soon. In the meantime, we are creating schedules that allow the EAs to support students and teachers in the classroom and to add extra support on the playground during recess.
Next week we will be interviewing candidates for our new 5th grade class. Class lists, supplies and classroom preparations are underway. We hope to interview candidates at the start of the week. Once a candidate is chosen, references are checked, and final papers are turned into HR, then we will need to be patient as HR completes its process. The new teacher will also be given time to plan and set up the classroom the way he or she would like. I will let everyone know when a definite date has been set for the class change. Thank you for the many offers of support! I am proud of the way our community pulls together to support our students and our school.
Dear Llewellyn Community,
I am pleased to announce that Pamela Gwynn will become the next principal at Llewellyn Elementary School. Pam will be a familiar face to many of you, having recently served as assistant principal at Llewellyn.

Earlier this year, Nichole Berg was scrolling through Facebook while visiting family when she came upon something that would change her life: a job description. The life-long Wisconsinite, then a vice principal at a Madison middle school, read about a position in Portland Public Schools she had never heard of before: Programs Manager for Climate Change and Climate Justice.
