    I hope you’re having a great summer, and I hope you’ll consider volunteering a little of your time and energy to help our schools look their finest for the first day of school.

    Project Community Care Day is an annual tradition and a wonderful opportunity to help beautify our school grounds. This year it will be held on Saturday, Aug. 24, from 9 a.m. to noon. 

    Please check back at this page for updates, including a list of participating schools, then grab your gloves and gardening tools. We suggest you also remember to bring water and a snack.

    I hope to see many of you at PPS schools on Aug. 24.

    Together, we can grow community in our schools. 

    Guadalupe Guerrero
    Superintendent, Portland Public Schools

    Thank you to the 3,000 volunteers that spruced up PPS Schools in 2018!

    Watch them in action!
