Tonight’s 8th Grade Family Night at Roosevelt has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled for Monday, February 13th at 5:30 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience this second cancellation may cause. MLC’s 8th Grade Family Night set for this evening at 6pm is happening as scheduled.
A huge THANK You to our PTSO and Event Coordinators, Miranda Robertson and Sofia Yrazabal, for hosting a wonderful Teacher/Staff Appreciation week for us. Each day, staff is enjoying special treatment thanks to Astor families. Please know these kindnesses are greatly appreciated and mean a lot to all of us.
I am so pleased to share some compliments Astor student received this week. A sub who has worked in many of our schools told me during cafeteria duty how polite the students were as they told her "please" and "thank you" when she helped them. Another visitor said it "felt good" to walk into the building. WOW! What great news to hear. Please compliment your children for me.
The year is racing to an end. Please make extra efforts to get your children to school on time and NOT pick them up early for appointments, etc. We need them to be here the entire day to ensure maximum learning. We're aiming for 95% or higher for the last quarter of the year.
At the end of every school year, the
School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies
for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are
essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of
PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re
excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their
stories with you.
Please congratulate all who participated. They all were fantastic and made Benson Tech proud!
Hello PPS families and staff,
On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.
This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25
We want to hear from you about the 2017-18 budget for PPS! The Portland School Board has scheduled three listening sessions to take your comments on how we should allocate our dollars in the coming year.
