CURRENT FRIDAY FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENT
Dear Llewellyn Families,
The sun is out and spirits are up. Our final quarter of the school year is on it’s way! Thank you to all of you for your support helping make the return to classes (CDL & In-Person) a success. What’s more, it’s poetry month as well as almost Earth Day! Here is a poem I found online that captures both! This poem was written by a child. I hope it will inspire some of our students to write one of their own!
Poem of the Day Let's Preserve Our Nature
© Arjun Published: November 2015
The sun is shining,
The sky is blue,
The birds are flying,
And the breeze is so cool.
Mother Nature is trying her best
To give nothing but beautifulness,
But what do we do?
Make her a mess.
Let's make her the best
By polluting less and less,
And preserve her green dress
For our kids and the rest.
Earth Day is every year on April 22nd, a day to bring awareness to environmental protection. We can each do small things to make the Earth beautiful and protect its natural resources.
Connect Over a Poem:
Talk with your child about the beautiful things they enjoy about Earth and what they can do to protect them.
Do something as a family that helps the Earth.
Plant a tree or some flowers
Recycle old bottles, cans, and newspapers
Pick up trash along the road
Eat your meal by candlelight tonight instead of using electricity
Use your own bags at the grocery store instead of plastic ones
Don’t let the faucet run while brushing your teeth
Make a craft out of recycled materials
SAFETY-Playground Rules-Afterschool Dismissal
For those attending school In-Person, we are asking that families depart the playground after dismissal at 10:15 am and 2:30 pm. (The playground will be used by Portland Parks & Rec beginning at 2:30 pm).
Please keep in mind that there will be no staff monitoring students. With the lovely weather and large numbers of students attending in person sessions, the playground fills up and not all are socially distancing.
We know that everyone is excited to see each other and that students are eager to play with friends after being separated for so long, however, we also want our students and families to be healthy and safe. Moreover, we want Llewellyn to remain open. Please help us by doing your part to ensure this happens.
Thank you for your support and understanding!
Be Safe! Be Well!
Q-3 Report Cards: Were mailed home today, Friday, April 16th. Please note that if your child has not attended or completed assignments in Music, PE and/or Movement, you may see a mark of NE (no evidence). Blank spaces in other subject areas means that that area has not yet been covered.
State Testing CANCELLED!
As you may be aware, the US Dept of Ed approved a modified waiver assessment plan for Oregon that required modified testing expectations for this year (see the linked waiver letter for more information).
However, on 4/13 the PPS School Board passed a resolution (click on this link and scroll down to Resolution 6287) to suspend state summative assessments for this school year.
There will be no OSAS ELA, mathematics, science, ELPA summative or Extended Assessments this spring for all PPS students. Because we will not be testing students this year, opt-out forms are not necessary.
SCHOOL PICTURES coming soon!
Please save May 4th as our possible picture day. We are working on finalizing logistics and will send more information soon.

From The PTA:
Earth Day is a week from today. Help celebrate the earth and build community by volunteering to spruce up the Llewellyn Garden or the Llewellyn grounds. Sign-up info is below.
We've also got lots of other ideas for how to give back and have fun! See the attached PDF llewellyn earth day.pdf for a neighborhood scavenger hunt printable, and lots more. The scavenger hunt printable will also be available or pick-up at Llewellyn next week.
From The Foundation: Sellwood 5K
We are joining fellow SE schools (Duniway, Lewis, Woodstock, Llewellyn, Sellwood Middle) for a virtual 5K fun run fundraiser. Run/Walk your 5K during May 22-29. All funds will be distributed equally across participating schools. Llewellyn's portion of the funds raised will support our Llewellyn Foundation efforts. Cost is $100 per family or $25 for individuals (t-shirts included).
From PBOT & Safe Routes to School: Community Building
Each month we will be sharing safety messaging from PBOT's Active Transportation & Safety Division that may be helpful to you or to share with your communities. We understand that safety looks different to everyone, and while these resources are not all-encompassing we hope that they are helpful as you navigate public spaces. April’s theme is Building Community. A strong and united community is a great way to increase safety.
Here are some ideas how to stay connected with your neighbors:
Help build community by supporting local Black, Brown & businesses owners of color in the Portland Metro area. Here are 3 helpful resources for shopping locally:
Stay connected to your neighbors by joining cultural events or participating in civic engagements! Check out upcoming events on City of Portland's calendar.
Explore your neighborhood! Use Slow Streets to stay active and connected. Find a map of locations here.
Check out the work of organizations and groups doing placemaking, like City Repair.
Do your part interrupting everyday harmful language and bias/hateful acts. For free trainings and reporting check out:
