Happy May, Meek Community!
I can't believe we are nearing the end of this unusual school year! I hope we can start the next school year differently than we started this year. I don ot currently have any information about next year, but as soon as I know, I will be sending information out to you.
Term 6 began on Monday, May 3, and we have enjoyed seeing students in the building during hybrid. It is definitely different with all of the new safety expectations in place and only a small number of students at a time, but we are happy to see our masked students engaging with us during this time. We are being extra mindful to keep our students and staff safe while in the building and in their classrooms.
I hope studenst will work hard while at school and at home to get work completed and turned in so that they can be one step closer to meeting the requirements for graduation.
There will be a commencement ceremony for graduating seniors at 4 p.m. on Juen 9 at Providence Park, where the Timbers play. It will be a wonderful celebration of our students' accomplishments. You will be receiving more information as we plan all of the details of the event.
Please take time to view our May Newsletter. This edition of the nesletter will provide you with infoermtion for academic planning for the summer months. It is free to you so plaease take advantage of this opportunity to gain additional credits towards graduation. See the counselor's Corner on page 3 for Summer Scholars information.
Take good care of yourselves and your families!
Be well and be safe,

As we complete this most unique school year, we want to recommend two events being staged by the PPS Visual & Performing Arts department to showcase art pieces and performances by the creative students of Portland Public Schools.
Dear PPS Community,
As this is the last week of Mental Health Awareness month, we want to ensure that everyone has information about our continuum of care for students who experience mental health and substance use challenges. We also want to highlight services for our BIPOC students and families.
