Spring 2018 After School Classes
Chief Joseph Families,
I would like to clarify a few issues around pick up and drop off. The cafeteria doors open for breakfast at 8:15. If your student is eating breakfast, please make sure they have time to eat. We dismiss students to classrooms at 8:38 and school starts at 8:45am. Buses no longer use the entire bus loading zone on Saratoga St. If you would like to drop your student off, without parking your car, you may do so near the front entrance. It is important that you do not park in the bus zone.
In the afternoon, students are picked up either outside at the classroom doors for K-1, or outside on the blacktop for 2-5. For student safety, we ask that you follow these procedures. Please do not pick up your student from inside the building.
Another safety concern is parking on the North side of Delaware St. This is a “No Parking” area. There is minimal visibility when backing out of this area and we do not want an accident. Please obey all parking signs.
Athletes from the Portland Interscholastic League won Class 6A state championships in track and field and golf last week, led by a Benson High School sophomore who took two titles with record performances.
Ockley Green Middle School showed off some teamwork at the
56th Annual St. John’s Parade. Ockley Green was one of seven PPS
schools that had an entry in the parade (joining Bridlemile Elementary, Faubion
K-8, George Middle, Franklin and Lincoln highs and Metropolitan Learning
Center), but was the only school to feature its band and dance team performing
together. The two teams combined on “Celebration” and the James Bond theme
Last week, 31 students who are about to graduate from PPS high schools were honored in the Golden Minds ceremony, which honors the district’s top Asian and Pacific Islander seniors. The ceremony, held at the district office, recognized students for academic achievement, community service and overcoming daily challenges.
