If every student collects just 10 Box Tops then Atkinson receives over $500! Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Any time you purchase participating products (General Mills, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Green Giant, Kleenex, Ziplock and Hefty to name some), clip the pink Box Tops off the packaging and turn them into the office. Attach them to a Box Top Buck to be eligible for prizes. Every Box Top counts! For a complete list of participating products, visit:

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. This is our third year together and as Atkinson’s principal I feel honored to engage in such meaningful and engaging work. I love our students, teachers, and families and strive to reach our vision. “Atkinson is a welcoming community that CELEBRATES diversity, INSPIRES confidence, and EMPOWERS children to THRIVE”.
The Atkinson community has a strong history of helping children maximize their potential. We are committed to engaging the whole child. We value the relationships we build with parents and we hope to collaborate with you in empowering your child to optimize opportunities, love challenge, inquire and show curiosity, learn from mistakes and celebrate learning. Whether you are dropping your child for the first day of kindergarten or you are a veteran Atkinson parent, the start of the school year is always filled with emotion and excitement. We want all of our students to be happy, successful, and to thrive. We hope that you find the experiences at Atkinson enriching and rewarding.
Thank you for trusting us with this great responsibility. It is truly an honor!
The PPS school board and communications department have been working to update the district’s public records policy with an eye towards greater transparency and compliance with several new laws that were passed by the Oregon Legislature this year.
Oregon schools, including PPS, will focus more on the role of Native Americans in Oregon history, thanks to a bill passed by the state Legislature.
Senate Bill 13, which focuses on providing accurate, place-based tribal education across the state, was signed into law by Gov. Kate Brown over the summer. It directs the state Department of Education to develop curriculum and provide teacher training relating to Native American experience in Oregon.
Hundreds of Portland Public Schools parents and community members have participated in public sessions aimed at gathering comments on the proposal to open two new middle schools at Roseway Heights and Harriet Tubman.
