  • Sabin Students Peaceful Protest #National School Walk-Out

    Last Wednesday our students participated in the National School Walk Out where thousands across the country protested against and to gain awareness of gun violence. Our PYP students created signs, while singing, led by staff and families marched the perimeter of the school. Our MYP students lead a panel discussion with community leaders on gun violence, safety, and awareness. Here is a link to a brief video capturing just a few moments of our student's thoughtful, and moving protest.

  • Chelsea Harper Memorial Fund for Restorative Justice at Sabin School

    Chelsea Harper

     
     
    Chelsea Harper was essential in bringing Restorative Justice (RJ) practices to Sabin School. She spoke up for social justice and racial equity, and was a living model of how to address white privilege. Chelsea believed in the power of communication and accountability in our school community, both for adults and children. She spoke out about racial disparities in discipline, and the academic achievement gap between white students and students of color, and she actively sought solutions. Chelsea deeply wanted every child in our community to feel welcome, regardless of their skin color or background, and to have tools to help them work through social conflicts, build authentic relationships and feel empowered in taking learning risks.

    In 2016-2017 Restorative Justice coaches supported Sabin teachers in holding daily community building circles.  In 2017-2018 coaches will continue to support classroom teachers with community circles, as well as support students in advocating for their social-emotional needs.

    Chelsea was a dance movement therapist, counselor, author, and extraordinary mom to Eva Doherty. In May 2017, Chelsea died from complications due to Metastatic Breast Cancer. Her bridge building lives on in the Chelsea Harper Memorial Restorative Justice Fund.  Thank you for continuing Chelsea’s legacy by supporting RJ at Sabin. She is greatly loved by her community!

  • 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.

  • 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.
