Messages From The Superintendent
Dear PPS Employees,
Last Tuesday, the Board of Education unanimously and enthusiastically approved Resolution 6250 honoring our classified and non-represented employees and declaring March 1-5, 2021 as Classified and Non-Represented Employee Appreciation Week here at Portland Public Schools.
Dear PPS Students, Families and Colleagues,
Today we celebrate and honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a hero of mine. As his influence is seen and felt in the ongoing movement for racial justice, I want to share this video created by the Boise-Eliot/Humboldt Elementary School community. They found a creative way to unify their voices to bring us a unique reading of Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech of 1963, originally delivered to a crowd of almost a quarter million people at the March for Jobs and Freedom in Washington D.C. I think you will enjoy this collaboratively produced presentation of Dr. King’s words brought to life by a new generation of change-makers for justice at PPS.
Dear PPS Families,
I join all those in public education across the country who denounce the attack on the U.S. Capitol yesterday. The violent and ultimately failed insurrection at the U.S. Capitol was traumatic to witness for all of us, including our students, but I remain optimistic about their future and our country’s.
Dear PPS Families and Colleagues,
I hope that you, your students and those around you, find opportunities to restore, laugh, and find joy during this winter break. The year 2020 has been a challenge for all of us, both individually and as a community.
