    Dear Arleta Families,

     As we head into Spring Break there are so many things to be grateful for. Here are just a few examples from the month of March:

    • Last week many of our students peacefully walked out of their classes, followed the lead of the their Student Council President and Vice President, and stood in a circle for 17 minutes of silence- it was a really powerful experience to observe.
    • Our Middle School Band performed during two school assemblies and at the Middle School Band Festival at Wilson High School.
    • We had multiple students competing in the state chess tournament, as well as competing in Oregon Battle of the Books competitions.
    • Our First Graders kicked off the parade season with a hugely successful First Grade Parade.
    • Last weekend there was a big turn-out of volunteers for  the Spring Garden Party and our school grounds look great!
    • We also received our staffing allocation for next year and will be able to increase the supports provided to our students.

    While there is still lots of work to be done, I am so thankful to work with such a supportive parent community, talented teaching stuff, and great group of students.

    Take Care,

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.

  • A message about the April 20 National School Walkout Day

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali
    Dear PPS families,
    The topic of school safety will once again be in the national spotlight on Friday, April 20, which has been designated by some groups as National School Walkout Day. The date has significance as the anniversary of the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Colorado. At PPS, we support student-driven conversations and actions to make our schools as safe, welcoming and inclusive as possible. With safety as our top priority, however, we are not able to authorize activities in which students leave campus.

    It’s been 50 years since some impassioned students led the movement to rename their school after Martin Luther King, Jr. Last Friday, the community turned out in force to show appreciation, and to honor Dr. King with a huge celebration at the school.
