Hello and welcome to Scott School! I am Principal/la Directora Thu M. Truong.
Incoming Kindergarten Story Time: Join us on May 3 and May 17 from 8:15-8:45AM in the school library for story time. Incoming students will get to meet our Media Specialist, Craig Hallman, and Library Assistant, Laura Milway, and listen to a story. Meanwhile, parents will get a tour of the building.
Street Safety Improvements: Through the Portland Bureau of Transportation's Fixing Our Streets program, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) is expecting to make a large investment in safety improvements around Portland schools in the next few years. This spring we're asking families to help us figure out what is needed most. In collaboration with PPS, we will be hosting open houses in each high school cluster.
We are excited to invite your school community to participate in the SRTS Fixing Our Streets open house for the Madison Cluster - Wednesday, April 12, from 6-8 pm at Scott School, 6700 NE Prescott. This event will help inform where and how the City’s Bureau of Transportation will spend $695,000 in the cluster.
The purpose of the open house is to listen to families and school staff about safety concerns around their school and to identify major routes used to walk and roll to the schools. Safe Routes to School is excited to help make these routes safer and more enjoyable for your families.
You are also invited to join me on our Community Walk on Wednesday, April 19 at 2:30PM where we will actually walk the route between Scott and Hacienda to experience the route and give specific input.
Connect to Kindergarten Events: Come learn about Scott School, our program offerings in English and Spanish Immersion, and register for school
PPS Lottery for Transfer: Transfer to focus options such as language immersion programs and arts/science-based schools occurs through an annual computerized lottery. The high school lottery cycle opens February 1 with an application deadline of February 22, 2017 for the 2017-18 school year. The K-8 lottery cycle opens February 8 and the application deadline is March 3, 2017.
We have 24 slots for native Spanish speakers and 24 slots for non-native Spanish speakers. All families new to Spanish Immersion are required to attend a Connect to Kindergarten event and submit a lottery application for entry.

Dear PPS staff and families,
Summer has started, but we want to let you know that the PPS Task Force on the Superintendent Recruitment is continuing to meet on a regular basis and work is happening daily to advance our efforts to find and recruit our next superintendent. We have a final position description and are still actively recruiting candidates. We appreciate the feedback and candidate recommendations we have received from the community to date. Below are highlights of our last meeting. We will keep you informed as we go forward. Thank you.
Julia Brim-Edwards, Chair, Superintendent Recruitment Task Force
Dear PPS Families,
Over the summer, crews will be working in schools throughout the district to address health and safety issues, using funds from the bond that voters approved in May. At the same time, planning is under way for bigger projects to rebuild three high schools and a middle school. We wanted to give you an update on what is coming up.
