Hello Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of Cleveland High School,
It’s unbelievable that we are already one-fourth of the way through our ‘18-19 school year with the end of 1st quarter last Friday, October 26th. WOW! I hope your student is having a positive experience here at Cleveland. High school can be a challenging place for young people when it comes to navigating the social and cultural norms. Know that we have an outstanding Counseling Staff, an excellent Social Worker, a Restorative Justice Coordinator, and many community partners who can support your student. Please communicate directly with your student’s teachers if you have questions about their learning or grades in specific classes. Our teachers welcome conversations with parents/guardians about our students’ academic progress.
Please join us for Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, September 26th. The program for the evening will begin at 6:15 pm in the auditorium. You will then have an opportunity to meet with your student’s teachers in their classrooms, and find out more about programs and curriculum at Cleveland High School.
After the presentation in the auditorium, Period 1 will begin promptly at 6:45 pm. Each period will be ten minutes in length, with a five-minute passing time to get to the next class.
Encourage your student to fill out this blank schedule so that you will know where you are supposed to go for each class period. If your student cannot remember or is unable to complete it, you can get your student’s schedule through ParentVUE. If you need helping getting on to ParentVUE, please see Amy Liu in the main office before or during Back to School Night.
We look forward to hosting you Wednesday evening!

Hello Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of CHS Students,
The start of the new school year is always so full and busy. I have made it into almost every single classroom already and have enjoyed meeting with several student groups about what is going well and what Cleveland can do differently to best serve them. It has been an outstanding start!
Of course, we always face new challenges and issues that require a high level of response. I want to share with you some updates that may directly or indirectly influence your student’s learning experience at Cleveland.
Hello Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of our Cleveland High School students,
What an excellent first day of school today! It has been wonderful seeing all of our Cleveland students, answering their questions, and helping them to find their classes.
I shared an email earlier about our additional staffing we received from the district and some schedule changes that happened over the weekend as a result. Again, let us know what questions you have.

Matthew Bacon-Brenes, a teacher mentor and a leading advocate for dual language immersion in Portland Public Schools, has been awarded a Horace Mann Award for Teaching Excellence for 2019 from the NEA Foundation and Horace Mann.
Portland Public Schools launched an initiative aimed at providing a full spectrum of care for students who are experiencing addiction and mental health issues. The initiative, announced at a news conference at the district office Thursday, comes in response to the increasing numbers of our students and families affected by the national opioid crisis, as well as other drug and mental health crises.
