Two Portland middle schoolers are fighting to address climate change. It's a fight to educate local students and lawmakers that's now being recognized around the world.
"We're the ones affected the most by climate change," said Jeremy Clark. "We have to do something."
Eighth graders Jeremy Clark and Charlie Abrams began their mission after Clark saw a cover of National Geographic Magazine.
Dear Sellwood Parents and Students,
It is with great joy that we welcome you to the 2017-18 schoolyear! I am very excited to be your principal and to be working with such an incredibly gifted staff and equally supportive community. Our staff is one of the best to be found in the entire District, and we share the same vision of committing ourselves to ensure that each Sellwood student reach their full potential.
Doors open for the school day at 9:05 and the tardy bell is 9:15 each morning. Being on time is crucial to your child’s success. We take tardiness very seriously and will be working hard to get every student to school on time. Your help is greatly appreciated and expected.
We look forward to getting to know you and we are excited with you as we begin the new schoolyear together. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Karl Newsome, Principal Marylyn John, Assistant Principal
Could you pass the U.S. citizenship test? Maybe. Maybe not. Some questions may surprise people who were born and raised in this country, and certainly could be a challenge for newcomers. That’s why eight Roosevelt High School students spend their Wednesday evenings teaching the ins and outs of the test to more than 50 immigrants through the Mission: Citizen program.
Lincoln ran away with the girls team title, and Benson used a strong performance in the sprints to win the boys championship in the Portland Interscholastic League track and field championships at Franklin High School on Friday.
