  • West Sylvan Eighth Grader Wields a Mighty Pen

    Even as a small child, Miranda Yesser possessed a keen understanding of the mercenary nature of the publishing industry. 

    According to her one-page, tongue-in-cheek author bio, which hangs on a clothesline in English teacher Dr. Holly Graham’s colorful classroom, “Yesser began writing books at a young age, then trying to sell them to her family for 5 dollars a copy.”

    It might be time to scoop those copies up. Miranda recently received honorable mention in the annual Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for her short story, “Youth.”

  • The Arts Tax in Action: The HeART of Portland is Still Beating

    Students who took their first steps into PPS kindergarten classrooms in 2014 – the year Portland’s first-ever arts education tax went into effect – are now thriving sophomores.

    Evan Sampson is one of those sophomores, and he will have a chance to share his story at this year’s HeART of Portland, a showcase spotlighting the artistic accomplishments of some PPS’s most talented students.

    The two-week celebration of creativity will take place from April 16-28 at the Portland Art Museum. All exhibits and performances are free and open to the public.

  • Lincoln & Grant Constitution Teams to Compete Nationally

    This weekend, the Lincoln and Grant high school constitution teams will compete in the annual We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution National Finals in Washington, D.C. 

    Now in its fifth decade, the event brings together students from all 50 states for a series of mock congressional hearings on everything from the Constitutional Convention of 1787 to the separation of powers and the future of democracy. 

    The Lincoln and Grant constitution teams, under the instruction of Patrick Magee-Jenks and Angela DiPasquale respectively, have long histories of taking home trophies on both the state and national level. 

    Good luck to all!

  • Important Calendar Updates

    First, the end of this school year will still be June 14 for K-11 students, and it will be May 31 for seniors.
    Second, next year’s bell schedules will change for many students.
    Beginning next school year, we added 15 instructional minutes for elementary and middle school students and provided all middle school students with a seven-period day. Accommodating these changes while supporting 410 minutes per week of teacher planning time and aligning our transportation systems requires us to adopt common start and stop times.
    Third, next year’s school calendars are available.

  • Mental Health Resources After a Crisis

    From the school counselor: 

    I know today we have come to school with a heavy heart after the traumatic and devastating news from the school shooting in Texas. The school counselor department and student success and health is working on compiling resources for educators and students.

     I do not want to overwhelm but also want to provide a few resources that might be of help throughout the week. If you, students, or families need support please reach out as I am happy to hold space for anyone who might need an outlet. 

    Recovering emotionally from disaster

    Managing stress

    Talking to students about school shootings in the news

     

    • Try and keep routines as normal as possible. Kids gain security from the predictability of routine, including attending school.

    • Limit exposure to television and the news.

    • Be honest with kids and share with them as much information as they are developmentally able to handle.

    • Listen to kids’ fears and concerns.

    • Reassure kids that the world is a good place to be, but that there are people who do bad things.

    • Parents and adults need to first deal with and assess their own responses to crisis and stress.

    • Rebuild and reaffirm attachments and relationships.
