  • Welcome Back

    Greetings, Alliance High School @ Meek Community!

    I'm thrilled to be back at Alliance High School as the permanent principal this year! Of course I wish we were able to be together as a school in person supporting all of you, but whatever our “reality” is for this school year, I know our Meek team will step up and support our students and our community in the best ways possible.

     

    Welcome to Our New Staff Members:

    Alison Lanigan is joining us from daVinci Arts Middle School as our half-time career education teacher.  She will work closely with our Meek staff on project-based learning activities and designing career supports for our students.

    We welcome back Alex Mayo, who is returning to us from his educational assistant position to a .5 Math Instructional Specialist. He will collaborate with our Math team to continue to support our students in creative and innovative ways to achieve math proficiency.

    Halla Williams is returning to us as a .5 social worker supporting students at Meek. Halla completed her internship with Amy White, our current and returning social worker last year.

    We are still in the process of filling our half time Student Attendance Coach.

    We begin this school year unlike any other where we will educate our students through a fully online model that we are all quickly trying to learn. In the next few weeks, we will be reaching out to you to determine how best to meet your students’ educational and social emotional needs.

  • An Update Regarding Limited In-Person Opportunities

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    We are now several weeks into Comprehensive Distance Learning, and simultaneously working on the next phases of a gradual re-opening of schools. PPS remains focused on published health metrics from the county and state and our medical experts. We also continue to observe Oregon Department of Education guidelines as we contemplate introducing limited in-person opportunities. While we are anxious to have all of our students back on campus, we will proceed in a measured and prudent manner that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and employees.

  • PPS Distance Learning to Continue Through January 28

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families and Staff,

    At last evening’s Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Guerrero announced plans to extend Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) through the second quarter, which ends January 28. This decision is based on the latest public health data; we are hopeful that our next announcement shortly after winter break will be different, as we would much prefer to be back in our school buildings.

  • Important Update Regarding MAP Assessments

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский
    Dear PPS Families,
    Whether in more typical circumstances or during our current Comprehensive Distance Learning mode, it’s important for our educators to have the best possible understanding of their students’ learning needs (this is one of the reasons we began the school year with our soft start, which prioritized student-teacher connections). One of the tools PPS uses to help teachers with that understanding is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.
