Join us for Multi-Cultural arts night. Engage with cultural activities from different nations of and learn more about your world. Hosted by the Woodmere Parent group.
Woodmere is hosting a Kindergarten connect and kindergarten Meet-up. Current and incoming kindergarten families can join us on Saturday from 10-11 NEW DATE AND TIME TO COME SOON.
The gym will be open and Ms. Kathleen and Ms. Jill, our amazing kindergarten EAs will be hosting some play area for kids to play together, and parents to mingle. Ms. Kinney and Mr. Graham, our Kindergarten teaching team and Ms. Polizos, our principal, will provide a brief tour and informational session for the families of incoming kindergarteners as well. Ms. Teresa will be there to help anyone with questions about registering.
Do you live in the Woodmere Neighborhood?
Kindergarten registration is open and we are looking forward to meeting and registering our New families.
Like many schools in SE Portland, Woodmere will have a new catchment area next year. This means incoming kindergarten families may have a different neighborhood school than the 1st grader that lives next door. Kindergarten siblings of students already enrolled at Woodmere will be welcome to enroll with us as well. Students already at Woodmere do not need to move schools due to this change and should continue with us till middle school.
How can I be sure where my new neighborhood school is? Families can enter their home address into the Districts searchable Map or reach out to our office for assistance. 503-916-6373
Dear PPS Community,
Saturday night, gunshots were fired outside of a district-wide basketball tournament held at Franklin High School. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured and the suspect is now in custody, but if you have any information about the incident please call 503-823-3333 or utilize the SafeOregon tipline.
Dear PPS Families,
As we prepare for the winter sports season, we want to share a few reminders for our spectators.
Dear families, students, and colleagues,
It has been a joy to visit learning spaces over the past four months and see our students reengaged in their classroom learning and school activities. I am pleased to observe our students interacting with peers and diving into new curriculum materials.
This has been a very productive time for Portland Public Schools. My appreciation to all the dedicated Team PPS members who work everyday to make our school system better and stronger.
Dear PPS Community,
Every single person in Portland Public Schools believes that our learning spaces must be safe, stable, and secure, and that we have a shared responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of the students under our care. We recognize that recent events, both locally and nationally, have rattled our community.
Superintendent Guerrero issued a broader statement about gun violence and its impacts on our schools, but we also want to explain how we both keep schools safe, and keep you informed.
