    Eighth grade information night is a wonderful opportunity to visit the neighborhood and focus option schools, meet teachers and administrators and learn more about the academic and athletic programs at your student’s future high school. 
    Portland Public Schools has High School Info Nights information online  
    Important dates to remember:
    • High school lottery applications can be filled out and submitted between November 8-30 (much earlier this year than previous years). 
    • The three schools that students can apply to during the lottery application window are Benson, Jefferson, and MLC
    • For our students who are in the Jefferson dual-assignment area, they need to choose their high school (Jefferson or their neighborhood school) no later than December 8.  Students in the dual-assignment area will receive information about this by mail, from the district.  HTMS’s school counselor, Ms. Drew, also has a list of students in the dual-assignment area and can assist with this process.
    If you have questions please email Ms. Drew.
  • Do you know how your student is getting to school?

    Since the school is located in the heart of the busy Eliot neighborhood, please follow all traffic laws and signs no matter how you plan to get to school. Student safety is our number one priority. Please consider the following transportation options and tips:
  • Creation of Harriet Tubman Middle School PTSA - Vote by August 31

    Dear Parents and Guardians of future Harriet Tubman Middle School students:

    A group of parents representing all four feeder schools is proposing to create a Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) for Harriet Tubman Middle School. We want to get feedback from parents about this proposal.  We are strongly committed to creating a parent-teacher-student association that is reflective of the overall Harriet Tubman school community and that is explicitly organized to address issues of access, inclusion, academic achievement, equity, and social justice for every student. We want the new PTSA to embody and support the mission of the Harriet Tubman Middle School Community.
    We are asking for your reply of an electronic survey by noon on Friday, August 31.

  • Harriet Tubman Middle School update for July 20

    Starting in September 2017, PPS conducted several months of Harriet Tubman Middle School community engagement meetings at Boise-Eliot/Humboldt, Irvington, Martin Luther King Jr., and Sabin schools. These included an open house attended by 450 people, and several tours of the building with families, community members and staff.  Updates were provided at each meeting, by Principal Natasha Butler, district leadership and other staff.
  • Harriet Tubman alumni gathering will be rescheduled in the fall

Help us reduce our districtwide paper use by taking one minute to ‘opt out’ of receiving those hard copies! Easy to follow instructions are found here to guide you through the process. Electronic pay stubs will always be available online.
    PPS has nearly 8,500 employees – that is potentially 102,000 extra pieces of paper used each year!
