    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – June 10, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    We have reached the final day of the 2021-22 school year.  Despite the many challenges, it was a school year full of learning, laughter, and love.

    Today we celebrated 8th-grade promotion for our current 8th-graders.  Congratulations, high school class of 2026!  6th and 7th graders had a fun time at Oaks Park this morning as well.  We had some luck with the rain holding off till this afternoon!

    We are currently finalizing student schedules for next year, and plan to send them in the mail next week.  More information about the upcoming school year will be forthcoming.

    I wish you all a few months of rest, relaxation, and some old-fashioned fun.

    Enjoy the summer.

    Sincerely,

    Jeandré Carbone

    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – June 3, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    It has been an intense week of highs and lows. On the heels of two horrific mass shootings, Sellwood experienced a very upsetting and scary graffiti threat that will take some time to heal and recover from. 

    We also had the opportunity to welcome students and families to the building for our Spring Band Concert and our Showcase Night.  Both events were well attended and, after two years of COVID restrictions, it was lovely to see families in the school’s hallways once again.  Thanks to all of the teachers and students who shared their work with us.

    Because only light can drive out darkness, I wanted to leave you with images from our final advisory session, where Sellwood students created the visuals of a peace sign and a heart out on our field.  Thank you to AP Diana Collins for the idea and the coordination, and custodian Scott Taylor for providing the drone and having the skills to capture these great images.

    I hope you enjoy some peace this weekend.

    Sincerely,

    Jeandré Carbone

    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – May 27, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    I apologize for the late newsletter.  Things were so hectic last week I put the newsletter together and forgot to send it out!

    So sorry!

    This week will be a busy one with Band Concert on Wednesday evening and Showcase Night on Thursday, from 5:30 to 8:00 PM.  Please follow the link for our Showcase Program which shows the times and locations of exhibits and events.  Thank you to 8th-grade block teacher Lisa Souther for her event organization and a great job creating the program.

    Finally, I wanted to share a photo of Sellwood students standing together to protest gun violence.  With the horrendous recent mass shootings in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas. our students are a beacon of hope in dark times.

    Sincerely,

    Jeandré Carbone
