Happy May, Meek Community!
I can't believe we are nearing the end of this unusual school year! I hope we can start the next school year differently than we started this year. I don ot currently have any information about next year, but as soon as I know, I will be sending information out to you.
Term 6 began on Monday, May 3, and we have enjoyed seeing students in the building during hybrid. It is definitely different with all of the new safety expectations in place and only a small number of students at a time, but we are happy to see our masked students engaging with us during this time. We are being extra mindful to keep our students and staff safe while in the building and in their classrooms.
I hope studenst will work hard while at school and at home to get work completed and turned in so that they can be one step closer to meeting the requirements for graduation.
There will be a commencement ceremony for graduating seniors at 4 p.m. on Juen 9 at Providence Park, where the Timbers play. It will be a wonderful celebration of our students' accomplishments. You will be receiving more information as we plan all of the details of the event.
Please take time to view our May Newsletter. This edition of the nesletter will provide you with infoermtion for academic planning for the summer months. It is free to you so plaease take advantage of this opportunity to gain additional credits towards graduation. See the counselor's Corner on page 3 for Summer Scholars information.
Take good care of yourselves and your families!
Be well and be safe,

Dear PPS Families,
Due to the continued and unprecedented extreme heat in the region, we are pausing student programs in PPS school buildings on Tuesday, June 29. This pause includes grab-and-go meal service at PPS sites, child care, and summer enrichment programs. However, we are distributing free meals at the following parks on Tuesday:
As we have repeatedly shared with families and the public, Portland Public Schools expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, five-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations today in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.
