    Welcome to our Rosa Parks Elementary School Website! Rosa Parks Elementary K-5 School is nestled in the New Columbia neighborhood of North Portland, Oregon. Our administration, teachers, staff and volunteers work together to achieve our goal, "to place and keep children first in all we do." We have a diverse community with over 20 different countries represented, which is closely knit together into a larger community that works hard to help our students succeed. At Rosa Parks, "failure is not an option!"

     

    Year-Round Balanced Calendar

    We are a Year-Round Balanced Calendar School. In fact, we're the only school in the PPS District piloting this program. Students will go to school for nine-weeks and then have a three-week break (Intersession) in the Fall. We will follow this schedule until our summer release in June, when we will have a five-week summer break.

     

    Intervention/Enrichment Week

    On the third week of our Intercession/break, identifying students who need extra math or reading support are invited back to what we call, Intervention/Enrichment Week. This is extra school days that are encouraged, but not required. Identified students for Intervention will enjoy smaller class sizes and interactive learning to help them meet their benchmarks. Students who are meeting/exceeding their benchmarks are invited back for Enrichment classes like, Prehistoric Predators, Airways Science, etc. This is such a great week for our students and staff!

     

    We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school!

    Dear PPS Families,

    As we go into the third week of our schools being closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, we are pleased to be able to offer meals to our students again, starting Monday, March 30. As we did during the first week of school suspension, we are making sacks of breakfast and lunch available for pickup outside of 15 of our schools. In addition, seven of these sites will now include once-a-week food pantry services for families that need groceries and other items that we previously offered at PPS school SUN sites.

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    After much urgent collaboration and planning, today leadership from Portland Public Schools and the Portland Association of Teachers shared with all of our PPS educators the outline for how teachers will begin working online next week. This outline represents our upcoming efforts to most effectively phase in supports for our students and teachers during the extended closure of our schools. We appreciate your patience while we, like other school districts, adapt our instructional delivery model virtually overnight. Next week we will share with you a detailed, multi-week plan for home-based learning for your students. Please stay tuned for that.

    Families of PPS,

    As the coronavirus situation continues to develop, we are looking at a number of ways to deliver the best possible experiences for students during the extended break, and we want to make sure all of our students can remain connected to their peers, teachers, and schools and have regular access to learning opportunities and curriculum materials.
