  • Alameda Field will be closed for the summer

    You have probably been noticing the slow but sure improvement of our field over the school year.  This is the result of efforts throughout the school year, a collaboration between PPS and a local landscape company.  Bald spots are beginning to fill in with patches of healthy grass.  We've also noticed more students playing on the field and a greater number of parents have been sitting on the field enjoying some conversation while watching the kids play.  To keep the field moving in this direction we met with Principal Raddy Lurie and Gary Hunter from PPS Grounds Maintenance.  What follows is the plan for continuation of the Field Improvement Project throughout the summer.

  • Summer Scholars: Hard Duty, High Reward

    Check your common perceptions of summer school at the door.  Because at Benson High School, the site of PPS’s Summer Scholars program, the sheer numbers, structure and atmosphere is not what you’d expect.

  • Meet Yousef Awwad

     Yousef Awwad, Interim PPS Superintendent

    From a remote town in Jordan to leading Oregon’s biggest school district

    At the age of 5, Yousef Awwad joined his older brothers in the streets of Ghweria, Jordan, a small city outside Zarqa, to sell sesame candies and balloons to keep food on his family’s table.

    Yousef’s dad was serving in the Jordan military and was stationed in an area of the desert so remote that he wasn’t able to send money home while he was deployed.

    Today, Yousef is serving as the new interim superintendent of the largest school district in Oregon. How did a boy living in poverty in a remote town in Jordan wind up here?
