Good Morning Chavez Families!
I huge thanks to all who came out and supported the SUN Rummage Sale. We raised over $1000 which will be used to help keep our food pantry open during the summer. Thank you to all who donated and purchased! Also, a huge thank you to Portland voters who passed our district wide school improvement bond measure last week. We are working with district staff to see what specific improvements will happen at Chavez.
This week at Chavez:
Thursday May 25th
Friday May 26th
Monday May 29th
Wednesday May 31st
Welcome back to school! We are excited for another great school year. We have added some new staff to our school and made great plans for this upcoming year. Some big changes to remind families of some of our big changes-
Here is to a great first day and year. We are On Time, On Task and On a Mission. We are Chavez. Somos Chavez.

At the end of every school year, the
School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies
for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are
essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of
PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re
excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their
stories with you.
Please congratulate all who participated. They all were fantastic and made Benson Tech proud!
Hello PPS families and staff,
On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.
This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25
We want to hear from you about the 2017-18 budget for PPS! The Portland School Board has scheduled three listening sessions to take your comments on how we should allocate our dollars in the coming year.
