Welcome to Vestal--thank you for visiting our new website!
We are focused this year on the vision statement: “One community. Every child.” What does that mean?
It means that, at Vestal, we believe every adult--administrators, teachers, staff, parents and guardians, community partners--shares responsibility for the success of every child.
It means that, at Vestal, we come together as a community to celebrate our successes and we come together as a community to navigate our struggles.
It means that, at Vestal, every child matters. We work to make every child feel included, valued, challenged, and engaged. Children’s needs differ, so our approaches and responses must differ. If we don’t get the approach right the first time, we are obligated to try again.
Families and partners, I invite you to check this site regularly so that you can stay in the loop on community events, happenings, celebrations, and needs. We also post regularly on our school Facebook page (PPS Vestal School)--feel free to follow us there as well.
Please know that my door is always open. I am best reached by phone (503.916.6437) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also find me at the Front Door almost every morning during arrival and in and out of the Main Office during most school days.
Emily Glasgow, Principal
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.
