    Principal’s Corner

    Skyline Families,

    Happy Friday. I cannot believe we are at the end of the third quarter already and only have nine weeks to go in the 2017-18 school year.

    Thank you to Erin Fast, Amber Anderson and everyone who has volunteered to help her get the Used Book Sale ready for next week. I cannot believe how many books we have ready to sell.

    Next week we have a late start on Wednesday. School starts at 10:45 a.m. and students are welcome to be in the gym beginning at 10:30 a.m.

    Have a great weekend!

    BG Aguirre

  • The SafeOregon Tip Line Aims to Increase Student Safety

    In keeping with our commitment to student safety, last October PPS joined school districts across the state in using the SafeOregon Tip Line. We want to remind you about this important resource.

    SafeOregon was funded by the Oregon Legislature as part of a statewide effort to improve school safety. It provides a secure means for anyone to anonymously report suspicious or imminently unsafe situations, such as threats of violence, fights, drugs and alcohol, weapons, bullying, harassment, intimidation or self-harm. 

    Anyone, from students to parents to community members, can access the system in a variety of ways, including:

    ·         The “Report unsafe behavior” button found on every PPS school’s website

    ·         The SafeOregon website 

    ·         A live call/text (844-472-3367)

    ·         An email to tip@safeoregon.com

    ·         The mobile app that can be downloaded from your Smart Phone via iTunes or  Google Play

    Trained staff are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to respond. 

    Please be sure to share this information with your friends and family. Remind your students: If you see or hear something, say something – immediately.  Let’s work together to keep our community safe.

  • New Mural for Skyline

    For their 6th Grade Community Service Project, Skyline students, with the help of parents, teachers and the community, created an amazing new mural for their gymnasium. The project stems from the IB (International Baccalaureate) requirement that all middle school students participate in community service. Watch Skyline students and staff talk about how this creative project taught them collaboration, communication and organization skills.
  • Welcome to Skyline School!

     
    Kids  
     
    Welcome to Skyline School!  We are a K-8 International Baccalaureate school settled on the top of the hills overlooking Portland and the Willamette Valley.  Our school is strongly supported by our parents and community.  We average over 4000 volunteer hours a year! This support translates into incredible learning experiences for our students.  As our students explore academic subjects and improve their skills, they do so in an environment that supports creativity, inquiry and open-mindedness.  Our committed staff creates a safe place for respectful and responsible learning, grounded in the IB philosophy for all students.  All of our K-5 classrooms are blended age to support peer-to-peer learning and deeper connections between students and teachers.  Our students participate in Physical Education, Music, Spanish and Technology every week.  Please contact the main office for further information and to set up a tour.

  •  Announcing Skyline’s new principal BG Aguirre

    BG Aguirre

    June 2017

    Dear Skyline School Community, It is with great pleasure that I announce BG Aguirre as the new principal for Skyline School. BG is currently the principal at St. Helens High School, a position she has held since 2013. She served as assistant principal for five years prior to taking over as principal.

    BG earned her Bachelor’s degree in sociology and Spanish from Oregon State University, her Masters of Arts in teaching from Concordia University and her administrator license from Portland State University. Following her graduation from Concordia, BG worked as an elementary school teacher in the Beaverton School District, first at Vose Elementary for five years, then Kinnaman Elementary for three years. She spent a year in the Lincoln County School District in Newport, before moving to the St. Helens School District to serve as assistant principal and principal for St. Helens High School in 2008.

    BG has proven herself to be an effective school leader and is looking forward to leading Skyline for years to come. She has received International Baccalaureate MYP Level 1 training and IB Administration Level 2 training. BG is also well-versed in successfully running an AVID school. While at St. Helens, BG was an AVID district director, an AVID principal, attended multiple AVID strand trainings and successfully implemented AVID school-wide.

    Throughout her time in both the St. Helens and Beaverton School Districts, BG has gone above and beyond her stated duties to ensure that her community thrives. She is a fluent Spanish speaker and is an advocate for all students. She has had great success writing grants and securing funding for intervention programs, professional development and students in need. She deeply values collaboration between teachers, families and administrative staff to ensure the success of the school.

    BG is a dedicated wife and mom of three children ages 3, 5 and 7. In her free time, she loves watching her children participate in extra-curricular activities and spending time as a family. BG enjoys reading, playing golf and is an avid runner. BG tells me she is absolutely overjoyed to be back in elementary and to have the opportunity to work in her community. Please join me in congratulating BG in her new assignment as the principal for Skyline School!

  • 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.
