  • Principal's Message

    Tue 6/11: 8th Grade Promotion, Franklin HS Gym, 5:00pm

    Wed 6/12: Last Day of School


    Dear Mt. Tabor Families, 

    I'll start with some exciting, yet sad, news. Assistant Principal Pam Gwynn will be a principal next year! I'm super excited for her and for the school community who will get to work with her. Of course, I'm sad for us because we're losing a member of our Tabor family. Pam has worked tirelessly these past two years, largely behind the scenes, solving countless issues, supporting kids and teachers, and leading our AVID program. She's been our chief operations officer, and it will be hard to replace her. We wish Pam all the very best, and we are happy for her. I know many of you have worked with her. If you have a moment, please express your gratitude for her work before the end of the school year. Her email address:

    Today we awarded the 6th grade Corn Hole Champions Trophy during 5th period. The tournament was so much fun; the big gym was packed with cheering, supportive kids; and it spread just good cheer and positive energy throughout the school. The three-day tournament was such a thrill, and I give special thanks to Mr. Plywood, Sherwin Williams, Mr. Groom, and all the 8th grade WEB leaders for making it all happen. I'm excited already for next year. Check out the trophy and a picture of our champions in our trophy case next year!

    Here's a quick note about the Franklin Sound Summer Camp:

    My name is Karen Bohart and I am the Choral Director at Franklin High School. Jason Owens, instrumental director at Franklin, and I are hosting a music summer camp for middle school students in August.

    Would you please share our link with the information to your school community?  We want to get the information out to the students in the Franklin cluster.  We appreciate your help in doing this.

    Next, we need a little help setting up for the promotion ceremony. If you can help us set up chairs, that would be awesome. Simply reply to this email, and I will forward your message to our PTA. 

    Here's a message from our cook, Rachel Tee:

    Please pay your student's lunch balance. We are $8,000 in the hole for student meal accounts. You can pay the balance here at the school or on the Nutrition Services page. Thank you for your help!

    Finally, just in time for our last Friday Hello, today I received word that both the Portland Association of Teachers and PPS have approved our zero-period contract exception. That means all of you who signed up for zero period will be able to get the class! What great news to end the year!

    That's all for now. Talk soon, everyone, and have an awesome final weekend of the school year!
