Dear Mt. Tabor Families,
Happy Friday! I hope your student had a great week!
Back to School Night
Next Thursday is Back to School Night! We hope to see you there as we celebrate our first big community gathering of the 2019-20 schoolyear. Please look for your student's schedule Monday afternoon. Your student should bring it home for your reference--and there will be a map of the school on the back.
Thanks to all those parents/guardians who attended our first PTA meeting. I felt some good energy in the room. The PTA will have a table at Back to School Night. Please consider being a member, as the money goes straight back to our classrooms. Also, check out our Blazers fundraising night here: Mt Tabor Middle School Community Night.pdf
Are you interested in adding your voice to school leadership? Consider joining Site Council! We host these meetings before school four times per year. The purpose of Site Council is to share ideas about school governance and student learning.
Race Matters: A Community Dialogue
Here's an important message from the Race Matters team:
Please join us to build skills and create a welcoming space for everyone to speak openly about the role of race in our and our children’s lives. Now, more than ever, we need to be a community that recognizes that systemic racism affects each of us differently, depending on our racial identity; that sees, welcomes and responds to each of our children for who they are; and that celebrates the diversity of experiences and perspectives that each family brings.
Sponsored by Glencoe Elementary School and Mt Tabor Middle School PTAs. Free childcare and pizza dinner available upon request: email@example.com
Have a great weekend, everyone! Talk soon!
I am pleased to announce that Dr. Esther Omogbehin has accepted our offer to join Portland Public Schools as a Regional Superintendent. Dr. Omogbehin has a long history of utilizing her leadership skills to create an environment that prioritizes the needs of all students and the health of the communities she serves.
Dear PPS Families,
On Friday, Sept. 20, we expect a large number of PPS students to join other young people around the world to participate in a Global Climate Strike. Students are planning to walk out of class and march to Portland City Hall around 10:30 a.m., and then march to a Climate Justice Festival at OMSI in Southeast Portland around noon for a climate education festival, with events scheduled to end around 5 p.m.
In addition to the significant 2017 school improvement work now underway across the District, the 2017 Health Safety and Modernization Bond includes funding for the development of Conceptual Master Plans for Jefferson, Cleveland and Wilson High Schools. PPS is seeking community involvement to help create the Conceptual Master Plans for these schools.
