Make sure to check your student's backpack for their school pictures today (Nov. 13th). Even if you didn't order a picture package, every student who took a picture should have at least a preview of their picture with order instructions. If your student did not get their picture taken, picture retake day is coming up soon on December 1st. Pictures will be taken in the morning and only the students who need their picture taken will get their picture taken- so make sure your student knows that they need to get their picture taken. Retake envelopes will go home this Friday. Students should have an envelope on retakes day, even if they've ordered online (a copy of the online receipt needs to be in the envelope).
Here are some more details from Dorian.
It's quick and easy to get started, just follow the instructions in the following guide.
As you know the District balances enrollment at the beginning of every year. One of the ways they accomplish this is by starting with Kindergarten enrollment. Knowing our enrollment numbers were lower than expected, I felt it was better to start with two Kindergarten classes and eliminate the 1st /2nd grade blends. The numbers continued to stay lower than expected in Kindergarten and as such we still had to give up the allocation for this class. In reviewing the options, I decided that lower numbers in our classrooms took precedence and not moving students would result in the least amount of disruption so we looked to our other staff and due to licensure and seniority, Mr. Tharp, our STEAM teacher has been transferred to teach math at Ockley Green.
Mr. Tharp has been an important member of the staff for several years, and it was hard to see him go. However, we have taken steps to lessen the impact of this loss and make sure that our schedule remains the same for students.
Thank you for your support.

Como ustedes saben el Distrito Escolar balancea los números al inicio del curso escolar. Una de las formas en que lo hace es basada en la matrícula de Kinder. La misma ha sido menor que la esperada, por tanto, sentí que sería mejor comenzar con dos clases de Kinder y eliminar las clases combinadas de 1er y 2do Grados. Nuestra matricula continuo bajando en Kinder. Al revisar las opciones, decidí que no mover los estudiantes resultaría menos interrupción. Decidimos revisar los miembros del claustro y teniendo en cuenta las licencias y la antigüedad, el Sr. Tharp, nuestro maestro de STEAM, ha sido transferido a Ockley Green para impartir Matemáticas.
El Sr.Tharp ha sido un miembro importante de nuestro claustro durante muchos cursos escolares y será difícil verlo ir. Sin embargo, hemos tenido en cuenta aminorar el impacto de su perdida y asegurarnos que el horario permanezca igual para los estudiantes.
Gracias por su apoyo,
Portland Public Schools will move forward with plans to open two middle schools in 2018-19.
The PPS Board of Education on Tuesday passed Resolution 5534, by a 7-0 vote, directing Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero to establish Roseway Heights and Harriet Tubman as middle schools, with students in grades 6-8. The board also directed that eight schools be converted into elementary schools with students from kindergarten to fifth grade.
