    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 Interssion/break, identified 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 benchmarkes 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 community,

    Six months ago, the Board of Directors and the Portland community entrusted in me the privilege and responsibility to help build and transform a public school system that guarantees equitable access, opportunity, and outcomes for all of our students. With your support and leadership, we are on a forward mission to build a system that is equity-focused and student-centered. Our challenge is to ensure that every student in our district receives an outstanding educational experience, one that prepares them to work, live and thrive in our incredible city.

  • Message on April 20 student walkouts

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.
