If your student is a current 8th grader and will attend Franklin High School starting Fall 2020, then we invite you to join us on Wednesday, December 4, 2019, from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Franklin located at 5405 SE Woodward Street.
At this annual event you and your student will have an opportunity to hear about our nationally-recognized Advanced Scholar Program, Advanced Placement options (which can earn students college credit) and our dual-credit program; talk with teachers from all disciplines; meet with current coaches and players from a variety of our athletic teams; see the wide array of clubs available to our students; and tour our state of the art school.
We hope to see you there so you can discover why we are proud to be Franklin STRONG!
All of us at PPS are thankful that voters across Portland voted to renew the levy that pays for over 800 teachers per year, teachers in every school in the district, including here at Marysville. That’s about one-third of all PPS teachers.
Thank you for your vote of confidence and for your support of our teachers. Thank you for believing in Marysville.
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Marysville!
We hope you enjoyed a wonderful summer. Along with exciting new changes this year, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of mindfulness, self-regulation and self-care. Our mantra remains…
Relationships . . . Respect . . . Rigor!
I am thrilled to step into my new role as principal of Marysville and excited to both celebrate and elevate the work begun by Lana Penley. I will be joined in the work by, our new assistant principal... Our whole staff is grateful to be back with our students and families and are looking forward to a great new year. This year we begin by offering more performing arts opportunities, through the addition of drama and music classes.
Community is important at Marysville. We extend a heartfelt, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible. We want and need your involvement and support in your child’s education.
Some things to remember as we begin the year together:
We highly value home/school communication. We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. Be sure to keep the emergency contact information up to date on your student's verification form. Safety for our students is essential, so K-3 students will be released only to emergency contacts listed on the verification form.
Please visit our website, as it contains important resources for our families. We are constantly updating and adding information that will assist parents and students as we progress through this school year. The school day begins at 8:40 AM and ends at 3:00 PM (K-5) and 3:15 PM (6-8) . Please make every effort to have your child arrive on time each and every day of school.
Again, I am honored to be serving as the principal of Marysville School. We have much to celebrate and will continue to elevate opportunities for every student and community member. It is a privilege to be a part of an intentionally Mindful community focusing on well-being for all!
With parent-teacher conferences just around the corner, it is important to know that PPS offers free interpretation services and other resources for our linguistically diverse families. If you need an interpreter for the conferences, which will be held Nov. 25-26, let your school know.
School level data for the Successful Schools Survey is now available. The survey, which was conducted during the 2018-19 school year, is part of the district’s initiative to use data to make informed decisions about school climate and culture.
