Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Arleta School! I want to thank everyone for the warm Arleta welcome. From students to staff to families, everyone has greeted me with a smile on their face and a kind word. I couldn't be happier to be a part of the Arleta community.
My primary goal as an administrator will always be to ensure the physical and emotional safety of our students. Along with staff, families and parents I will be reviewing and reflecting on all the systems we use at Arleta to ensure that they are meeting the needs of all our students and families. Along with safety, we will be focusing on building strong and healthy relationships and creating rigourous expectations for academic achievement. I believe that all students have the right to academic success and with the right support they are able to reach that goal.
Please know that if you want to share a story, discuss an issue or just say hi, I will do my best to be available to you. The best time to catch me informally is in the morning or after school on the porch. If you want a more formal sit down time, please email me at email@example.com or text me at 971-347-4566 and we can set up a time. Please know that I will be spending a lot of time in the classrooms where the important work takes place, so I might not always be in the office if you drop-by, but you can always make an appointment in the office with one of the secretaries.
The beginning of the year always brings a sense of hope and possibilities. New teachers, new friends and new opportunities to learn and grow. Have a great year!
~ With Gratitude, Ms. Kruger
The Portland Public Schools Board of Education voted unanimously to extend PPS Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero's current contract by another two years during its Tuesday, June 25 meeting. Since he will be entering the third year of his original contract, the Board has committed to a total of five years through June 2022 with Guerrero at the helm. The approval came after board members offered a comprehensively positive review of his performance.
