  • School Dance & School Site Council Meeting

    Student Dance

    We are having our first dance this afternoon from 2:30-3:45. Students will have other activity options besides dancing including karaoke, board games, ping pong, and a number of other activities. Special thanks to our Student Leadership group and Mr. Mo for making all of the arrangements. We also appreciate our parent chaperones for helping with this special event. Since students will be able to move between activities, please make arrangements to have them come to the office if you need to pick them up during the dance. While the activities will be well supervised, it can sometimes take awhile to find a student in a large group. 

    School Site Council Meeting

    On Tuesday, 2/19 we will be having our School Site Council meeting from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Library. All are welcome. We will be reviewing the draft of our school plan, called a Comprehensive Achievement Plan, and making any needed modifications. The plan was created using input from last year's community meetings, as well as from parent input opportunities during Back to School Night and conferences. The plan is being shared at the Principal's Coffee from 9-10 a.m. this morning, as well as at an evening Principal's Coffee from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening. All are welcome.

    Broadway Vantage Night Tonight!

    We will be hosting a joint Lee Elementary/Roseway meeting n the Broadway Vantage Community Room from 6-7:30 p.m. this evening. Please join us for food, raffle prizes, and information about both schools.


    New Student Planners

    Students received new planners today that they will need each day that should be kept in their binders. If students need a binder, they just need to tell their first period teacher. Please check your student's planner at least once a week. Here are the planner guidelines shared with the students today:


    Planner Expectations

    Teachers in every class need to spend time at the beginning or ending of class to fill out planners with students.

    • Students should write down homework or “what they did” for the day. “No Homework” is not enough.
    • Students should be highlighting homework or important dates (tests, quizzes, projects due)

    • Teachers should check that student has filled in the information.

    • Hall passes are now in the planner.

      • Student fills in where they are going and teacher will sign.

      • No planner=no leaving class.

      • Only allowed two times a day.

    • Thursday’s homeroom will be used to help organize binders and check planners.

    New Advisory Model

    We have a new advisory model this semester. Instead of having advisory once each Wednesday, students will have a daily advisory time during an extended first period. This time will be used for community building, expectations review, and social-emotional curriculum. First period is now considered "home room." First period teachers will be assisted by another teacher/staff member.


    Traffic Safety

    We are asking the community to please be careful when dropping off and picking up students. Students should not be dropped off or picked up in front of the school as the street is too narrow to safely accommodate two-way traffic safely. Our drop-off/pick-up area is the west side of the school. The lane along the sidewalk curb is for stopping  and the other lane is for cars to exit the parking area. Please be aware that some parents have arranged to pick up their students across the street and to be mindful of students crossing the street. Thank you for your effort in keeping our students safe!


    Upcoming Meetings

    We have an upcoming Principal's Coffee on Friday morning, 1/25, from 9-10 a.m. in Room 109. Principal Ellwood will be sharing disciplinary data from the first semester, as well as data from other middle schools in the district. The Principal's (Decaffeinated) Coffee will be repeated the evening of Wednesday, 1/30 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Library. 


    We also have a School Climate Committee meeting scheduled for Monday, 1/21 from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Library. This committee is working on finalizing the School Climate Handbook and reviewing first semester disciplinary data. All are welcome!

  • Principal's Coffee Rescheduled

    The Principal's Coffee originally scheduled for tomorrow morning and the evening of 1/28 is being rescheduled due to schedule conflicts. Here are the new dates and times:

    A.M. Principal's Coffee- Friday 1/25, 9-10 a.m., Room 109

    P.M. Principal's Coffee- Wednesday 1/30, 6:30-7:30 p.m., RHMS Library

    We are still having a community meeting at Broadway Vantage on Wednesday, 1/23/19 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This is a joint meeting with Lee Elementary School and food is provided. We are looking forward to seeing many of you there!

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    If you are the parent or guardian of a Portland Public Schools student, ask yourself: How is the educational climate at the school? Portland Public Schools is looking for answers to this and other key questions from family members of PPS students as part of the Successful Schools Survey.

  • Key date for immunizations is coming up

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    The recent outbreak of measles serves as a reminder about immunizations, with an important deadline coming up.

    Students in Portland Public Schools who have not gotten all of their required immunizations face a Wednesday, Feb. 20 deadline. That is the “exclusion date” set by the state for 2019, when any student who is not fully immunized may be barred from attending classes or district-provided child care.
