    College Ready ‐ Career Focused ‐ Committed to a Just World

    Good morning Roosevelt families,

    Welcome to our last week before Spring Break!  I hope you are looking forward to a little bit of well-deserved time off.  If you missed, or wish to relive the incredible rally that our students organized last week, here are a few links that might help: transcript of the student speeches, few pictures by the Oregonian, and a letter written by the district leaders reflecting on the day.  Here is an excerpt from this letter:

    We had the opportunity to join Gov. Kate Brown, Portland Association of Teachers President Suzanne Cohen, City Commissioner Nick Fish, and State Senator Lew Frederick at Roosevelt High School to listen to students express their understanding of the Constitution, advocate for safe schools and common sense gun control, and remind their peers that their voices are critically important. The students called on us, the adults and the leaders, to take this issue seriously and to commit to real action. In public education, we want our students to understand issues objectively, to think critically on any topic, and to exercise their own sense of agency as individuals in this world. Wednesday morning on the Roosevelt athletic field we heard a solid understanding of the facts, a framing of the issues, and clear, yet emotion-filled thinking expressed through song and poetry.

    Thank you all who helped provide our students with the space and support they need to take a stand and make their voices heard!  Here are few more announcements and reminders for the week ahead.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Feel free to email Kim before noon Wednesday (earlier this week than usual) if you would like any announcements included in the next weekly memo.

    Hope you had a restful weekend.  Congratulations to our Boys Basketball team on an impressive season.  Although they lost on Saturday against the 3rd ranked Southridge, they looked like a team capable of competing with the best in the state.  Our boys and their coaches have every reason to feel proud of their accomplishments this year.   The future is bright for both our Boys and Girls Basketball teams!

    Good morning Roosevelt families,

    Welcome to the Black Lives Matter Week of Action!  We are kicking off the week with our Third Annual Hoodies Up Day.  Kudos to our students for taking the lead on organizing this day of remembrance and consciousness-raising.   Please take the time to examine the incredible posters that are displayed throughout the school and please share with our student your support and appreciation for their efforts.  We are also celebrating the Black History Month at Roosevelt and beyond.  The RHS Black Student Union and the Black Girl Magic have organized a month-long schedule of activities in order to ensure black students, staff, families and community members are seen, celebrated and shown that their lives matter in this school. Our students’ work has gotten the attention of The Skanner, which will start featuring our students who were nominated by their teachers for a Black Excellence Award.

    Good morning Roosevelt families,

    I hope you have a relaxed and productive grading and planning day.  As some of you may know, we have been looking for an organization/facilitator to work with us on how to respond to different expressions of hate speech.  Center for Equity and Inclusion does this kind of work at the local and national level.  The folks who started CEI have deep roots in North Portland and are very familiar with Roosevelt.  Our admin team will be at an off campus training with CEI today (Monday).  CEI will also work with our staff during four PD sessions to begin to develop a shared approach to engaging conversations about race and its intersections with students and each other.  This work will help us improve our individual and collective ability to respond to race/ethnicity/culture-based micro or macroaggressions. I am really excited about this partnership and look forward to our shared learning and growth.

    Good morning Roosevelt families,

    Happy New Year!  I hope that you and your loved ones had a restful and relaxing break.  My family and I spent the bulk of our time in Alaska, visiting cousins and grandparents.  It had been two years since we spent winter break in Alaska and it didn’t take me long to remember why.  The temperature gauge never went above 15 F and the sun barely skimmed the horizon line between 11:30am and 3:30pm.  In short, Alaska was dark and cold.  I know that we are long way off from spring time here in Portland, but it sure is good to be back home.

    I will not be in school on Tuesday as I will be helping my mom with her surgery tomorrow.  I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday.

    Here are a few announcements for the week ahead.  As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  Feel free to email Kim directly if you would like any announcements included in the weekly memo:

    We have three busy weeks ahead of ourselves here at Roosevelt.  Our 8th Grade Preview Nights is on Wednesday - please join us if you can.  The Winter Concert is on Thursday, December 14th at 7pm - you will not want to miss it.  And winter sports are about to kick off, too.  Most importantly, the semester ends shortly after winter break.  Let’s use the next three weeks to ensure that our students are ready for a strong finish to the first semester.

    Good Morning Rider Families,

    I hope you had a restful weekend and a good start to the new school year.  We had the best start of the year that I can remember in my 15+ years as a teacher and principal.  Our students seemed excited to be back, the new building is (nearly complete), and our teachers and staff welcomed back students with open arms.  Our counselors deserve a lot of credit for making sure that our student schedules were ready for students.  There were no long lines of students with ‘holes’ in their schedules, waiting for counselors to fix their schedules.  Our office staff also did a phenomenal job of helping with registration, student photos, and countless other tasks that were sprung upon them.  I also want to thank our paras and EAs for helping our students (and families) transition back into school mode, and I want to give a shout out for our Campus Security Agents for being visible, approachable, and supportive.  Last but not least, kudos go out to our teachers for starting this school year with thoughtful and engaging activities, for beginning to build thriving learning communities, and for reminding our students why Roosevelt feels like home.  Here is to a great year ahead!

    Monday: Labor Day (no school)

    Tuesday: B Day (EARLY DISMISSAL)

    Wednesday: A Day

    Thursday: B Day

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.

  • A message about the April 20 National School Walkout Day

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali
    Dear PPS families,
    The topic of school safety will once again be in the national spotlight on Friday, April 20, which has been designated by some groups as National School Walkout Day. The date has significance as the anniversary of the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado. At PPS, we support student-driven conversations and actions to make our schools as safe, welcoming and inclusive as possible. With safety as our top priority, however, we are not able to authorize activities in which students leave campus.
