    Hi Riders,

    What a great week to be a Rider!  If you haven’t seen The Addams’ Family musical yet, get your tickets for next weekend!  It is another amazing performance!  Our boys’ basketball team won the PIL championship last weekend and are ranked 3rd in state.  Come out on Tuesday at 7:00pm to see our Riders take on David Douglas at the Velt.  

    This week is also the middle of 3rd quarter, so progress reports are due later this week.  Check your mailbox next week to see your student’s progress in the quarter.  We will have Saturday School on March 9th.  Look for a separate email to sign up your student.  

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    I shared a few hours ago that our building had some vandalism and graffiti when we got here this morning.  I want to say thank you to our custodial staff for responding so quickly and helping to get the building ready for students.  Thank you to the teachers and other staff who helped to cover the graffiti so that students wouldn’t see it as they entered the building and went to classes.  I am always so grateful to our community and how we come together in moments like this.

    This is the last week of winter sports.  Shout out to swimming and wrestling who both had students qualify for state!  Our boys’ basketball team will be heading to state this year as well and will likely be the PIL champs!  

    Huge shout out to Jo Lane and our theatre program.  They were selected to be the first high school in Oregon to perform “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” which is now being performed off Broadway.  I know our students will create an amazing production!  Our Constitution Team is continuing to grow and had another great showing at the Con Team competition a few weeks ago.  Finally - congratulations to our Jazz Band for their multiple qualifiers for state!  

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    Report cards are on their way to your house.  If you don’t get your report card by the end of the week, let us know.  

    Remember - we have school next Monday to make up time for the teachers' strike and the snowstorm.  We want your students here on time every day.  

    Shout out to our Jazz Band that qualified for the state and to our Theatre troupe who won several awards in the Northwest Regional Acting Competition!

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    Today is Hoodies Up Day at Roosevelt.  We honor the memory of Trayvon Martin - a 17-year-old black boy that was shot and killed in Florida while walking through a neighborhood.  The acquittal of George Zimmerman led Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi to begin the Black Lives Matter movement.  Today is Trayvon’s birthday, and it is also the first day of our Black Lives Matter week of action for the start of Black History Month.  This week, teachers wil be teaching about different aspects of the Black Lives Matter movement and Black History that are connected to their content.  Shout out to Mr. David Massey - a ninth grade seminar teacher - for his lesson teaching students the history of the Civil Rights movement and the Black Live Matters movement and the connections to Portland history.  Thanks to our Black Student Union and Leadership students for their work on this event and others to celebrate Black History Month.

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    We are starting semester two today.  Please remind your student the importance of starting the new semester strong.  Attending class everyday, completing assignments on time, and attending flex are all ways to ensure your student is passing at the end of the semester.  There are a lot of events coming up on campus.  Check out the calendar in Trivory for dates and times of our games, plays, and performances.

    Hi Riders,

    We've missed you! It’s hard to believe we missed a full week. I hope everyone stayed warm and safe during the ice storm.  Finals are happening this week.  The schedule is on Trivory if you need more information.  We will have Saturday School this Saturday for students to finish any last-minute assignments before teachers have a grading day on Monday, January 29th.  Please connect with teachers if you have specific questions about how your student is doing in their classes.

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had time to connect with family and friends over the shortened winter break.  There are three weeks until finals.  We want your students in class  everyday until the end of the semester.  Talk to your student about finishing the semester strong!  If your student needs help, there is flex each week.  Teachers and counselors are available to help.  Have your student reach out if they need anything.

    Parent Teacher conferences are January 10th and 11th.  All conferences are in person here at Roosevelt.  If your student is failing any classes, this is a great time to connect with teachers and find out how to help your student finish strong!

    Go Riders!

  • Cleveland IB Students Shine in Annual Showcase

    Ever wondered if dogs might be able to sniff out cancer? Or how Magic the Gathering is connected to the Satanic Panic of the 1980s? Or if your running watch might be gaslighting you?

    Seniors in the Cleveland High School International Baccalaureate (IB) program answered these questions – and many more – at the 15th annual Extended Essay Senior Showcase on February 21. The showcase gives IB students the opportunity to present the results of two years’ worth of research into academic topics of their choosing. The topics begin as inquiry questions, which students then investigate and eventually answer in the form of a 4000-word essay.

  • How Do You Measure a Year: The Annual District Calendar

    At first glance, the annual Portland Public Schools district calendar might seem to fulfill one crucial function: to alert students, staff, and families to the days when school is in session and when it is not. 

    If that were the case, crafting the calendar would be the work of days, if not hours. In fact, the calendar is a multipurpose living document that involves meticulous planning and careful forethought to ensure the best possible outcomes for students and staff. It also reflects the needs and observances of the many diverse communities the district serves.

  • Compacted Math Changes Coming in 2024-25

    Ethan Kramer, Beaumont Middle School’s assistant principal, sees middle school math as so much more than 2x + 3y = 5. 

    “It’s helping to build the logic center – the prefrontal cortex – in analysis and processing,” he said. Given this, Kramer and others believe that middle grades instruction must lay a strong foundation to support more challenging math concepts in the future – first high school, then beyond.

    But what are the components of that foundation? And how is it best established?

    The district’s middle grades core academics team and its grades 6-8 math committee have spent the last year weighing these questions in tandem with educators and community stakeholders. Their goal: a comprehensive math curriculum that challenges students without rushing or skipping over key concepts.

  • To Close or Not to Close? The Many Factors that Go into an Inclement Weather Decision

    In meteorological terms, Portland’s first big weather event of 2024 has been the definition of a perfect storm. Frigid temperatures and high winds combined with snow and ice to bring down tree limbs, close roads, scramble traffic, freeze pipes, and knock out power for tens of thousands of residents.

    It’s been a metaphorical perfect storm for Portland Public Schools as well. Fallen trees cut power to multiple schools and others have suffered water damage from broken pipes. Lack of heat is also a problem, and impassable roads, paired with snowed-in and icy parking lots, have made it impossible for buses to run safely. Those same conditions have limited how the district’s facilities and operations teams can even assess the scope of the issues, let alone begin working on solutions. And icy sidewalks mean walkers have no safe route to school.
