• From Principal Pam:

    Well, we have finally made it to the end of a most unusual year!  The end of a school year is always bitter sweet: there is joy in the accomplishments of a finished school year, yet sadness in seeing our students go, some of them moving to Middle School and others to new towns or neighborhoods. 

     

     

    On Tuesday, however, despite the weather, it was a magnificent day to celebrate our 5th Graders as they were promoted to 6th grade and sent on their way to Middle School.  I want to give a HUGE shout-out to Mr. Crouser, Ms. Nielsen, Mr. Rozell, and Ms. Herrmann for their amazing work coordinating this day and making it special for students.   Thank you to Mr. Josh for DJ-ing the event and to all Ms. Herrmann’s team, Ms. Leah, Mr. Travis, and Mr. Josh for painting signs and taking pictures as well.   I also want to thank all of our fabulous parents who jumped in and contributed in so many ways whether it was obtaining the Balloon Arch, setting up rain tents, putting together the 5th grade slideshow and video and so much more! As students caravaned by the front of the school I saw many happy smiles and heard many thank yous. This will certainly be a Promotion celebration to remember for years to come!

     

    Parents, students, and Llewellyn neighbors, thank you to everyone for coming out to wave a final goodbye of the year during Tuesday’s Final Staff Parade through the neighborhood.  Although April’s parade was in the bright sun, our spirits Tuesday were lifted in seeing everyone, hearing the cheers and thank yous throughout the route.  It helped as well that the rain held off and we could keep our car windows down.  We are so grateful for the support of our community and can’t say thank you enough to all of you for all the work you and your family have done to support the continued education of your child in these unprecedented times.

     

    While we don’t quite yet know what school will look like next fall (details should start coming out soon), we know that we can get through anything together!  Thank you for your support this year as I navigated my rookie year.  It has not been easy, but I have learned a great deal.  I hope you all have an enjoyable summer full of happiness, continued good health and maybe a little adventure (of course within CDC guidelines).  I look forward to beginning a new year with all of you in the fall!

    On behalf of the entire Llewellyn Staff we would like to thank all our volunteers who have helped us throughout the school year. Please check out this special video made in your honor. (Please ignore the lack of video editing skills. Something to work on this summer!)

    Important Reminders:

     

    Student Item Pick Up Day will be TOMORROW - Thursday, June 11th.

    Library Book Return:  Please bring your child’s library books to Llewellyn on Student Item Pick Up day, June 11th.  We will collect the books from you when you arrive in front of the school. 

     

    Lost & Found Items will be under the covered area on June 11th.  If you believe you have items to be retrieved, please park away from 14th Ave, so as to keep the street clear for the Drive-Thru.  Lost & Found items will be under the covered area.  Remember to use social distancing procedures when looking through the items.

     

    Medications: The school nurse and Health Assistant will have medications available for pick up.  You should have received a phone call reminding you of this opportunity.  All medications not picked up will be disposed of.

     

    2020 Final Report Cards:

    The usual practice in June is to send final report cards allowing you to see where your child excels and where there is room for growth in each subject area. This year’s final report cards will be very different. After moving to Distance Learning mid-March, schools prioritized care, connection, and continuity of learning for all students. Teachers focused on, maintaining connections with students, delivering innovative instruction, and ensuring that all learners had the opportunity to succeed and were not penalized by the extended school closure.  The marks your child will receive are based solely upon their participation during Distance Learning. There will be additional space for teachers to add comments regarding student learning, however it is not required. Looking at these report cards with an equity lens, we recognize that each family has had to make school participation decisions based on their individual situations and we have appreciated your communication around your particular situation. Distance learning marks will not adversely affect student placement in the 2020-21 school year.  

     

    Borrowed Chromebooks:  

    Please see information from a recent email sent to all PPS families:

    Students who currently have a PPS issued computer and/or hotspot may keep them over the summer. 

    Graduating seniors and students who know they will not be returning to PPS in the fall are asked to return their PPS computer and/or wireless hotspot.

    • When: Mondays and Thursdays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
    • Where: PPS district office (501 N. Dixon St). Please go to the lower level parking lot, which has an entrance on N. Larrabee Ave.
    • Please bring: The PPS computer and/or wireless hotspot, along with any charging cables, that you are returning. 
    • Please be aware: We are asking everyone to use recommended physical distancing practices, keeping at least 6 feet of space between groups and wearing a facemask or face covering, if possible.
    • For more information, please visit: https://www.pps.net/devices.

     

    Summer Learning Resources: 

    Many of the links students have been using this spring will still be available for them to use over the summer. Continue to check the Distance Learning web page through June and July and enjoy the extra time to continue learning at your child’s own pace.

    P-EBT BENEFITS FOR PPS FAMILIES

    In May, we provided information about the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer program, or P-EBT, that was being made available to families to offset the cost of meals that would otherwise have been consumed at school.  We wanted to provide a quick update to families about this benefit.  Please note that due to high demand, ODE and DHS appear to be behind in distributing funds as planned.  

    • Families currently directly certified and eligible for free or reduced price meals do not need to submit a meal application to receive P-EBT benefits
    • Current directly certified recipients may have received their benefits through a direct deposit/load onto their Oregon Trail card. Other students in the same household who are not directly certified and attend a school/site that participates in National School Lunch Program (NSLP) will receive benefits via a card in the mail in a few weeks.
    • Only students attending a school/site that participates in NSLP will receive the P-EBT benefit. To check the list of schools visit this website:  https://www.oregon.gov/ode/students-and-family/childnutrition/Pages/COVID-19.aspx
    • Benefits are retroactive to March 16, 2020.

    Please click here to read the original message and more info about eligibility and access to P-EBT.

    FREE SUMMER MEALS FOR PPS STUDENTS AND ALL CHILDREN

    We are pleased to announce that the meal service we have provided for students since the closure of school on March 16 will continue during the summer. Although we will lose two sites, Harrison Park and Rigler, due to construction, we are adding a new site, Faubion, to bring our total to 14 schools where students can receive breakfast and lunch Monday to Thursday, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Please note the start time has shifted from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  Faubion will start Monday, June 15.  Breakfast and lunch will continue to be free for all PPS students and all children in the community ages 1-18 years.  Children do not need to be present to receive a meal.  Pantry services in partnership with Oregon Food Bank and SUN will also continue into the summer, along with the food boxes with Pacific Coast Fruit Company.

    PPS also is partnering again with Portland Parks & Recreation to provide meals at 13 additional parks throughout the city starting June 22.

    From Principal Pam:

     

    As we make our final preparations for our last week of school, I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for sharing your amazing children with us this year. In many ways this year has not been what I expected, but I have found much to be grateful for in all that I have learned from my staff, our students and you. Thank you for challenging me, supporting me, and helping me to grow every day in more ways than I can count.  

     

    Finally, I hope you have had time to read and ponder the letters from myself and Ms. Brittany, our counselor sent last night in response to the death of George Floyd. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said, “A riot is the language of the unheard.” Please know that we are here to listen should you need to talk. #Blacklivesmatter

     

    Be safe, be healthy and spread a little more love and kindness by reaching out to check on your family and friends, especially our Black and Brown families.

     

    With hope,

    Principal Pam


     

    Great news! I am proud to share that I just learned that one of our 4th grade students, Ryan Conrad took Second Place (no small feat) in the Solo Festival contest held by MUSE Band in April.  Ryan began the school year as a beginner and quickly advanced to the Intermediate Band level the second half of the year. Students have continued to work with their MUSE band directors even during the pandemic. Please join me in congratulating Ryan for this amazing accomplishment. You can view his performance here: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/i0o7x5k29cflnzv2wy0ae/Ryan-Conrad.mp4?dl=0&oref=e&r=ABI10MvxGyZp8ybekfOiTgjQ7yWSZ7P2CeZ4mPNrbU08WZzSjn-Pp2G4v06b96vc4kOn4PSj8Mhs1lfxVqbDQKQM8Fr7-Bewoj4qiE0taPIGrTlRI5wN6KbijraB4uBnYH8ROHY4vj2Ue-nEa7wKPYrUDxBMbclni1bVQKxO8RYUh6LQRnkHRQwJzXi8MHSaxrKoB_nLCwypvmZv_vep8Ugb&sm=1

    5th Grade Drive Thru Promotion will be at 10:00 am, Tuesday, June 9th. Basically, family cars will line up on 14th Avenue, in front of the school. If you will not be driving, please line up on the sidewalk at the southern end of the block (near the backstop). 5th Grade Staff will hand students a package of items. You will continue toward a balloon arch, where you will have an opportunity to get out of your cars and take a picture of your graduate under the arch. Then you will get back in your car and continue through. We have had to scale back the number of staff who are able to celebrate with us due to District Safety Guidelines, but be sure that we will clap and make a huge fuss as we are so excited for all our 5th grade students have accomplished.  You should have received more information from your child’s 5th grade teachers about the exact route to follow.

     

    Llewellyn Staff Parade will begin at 4:00pm, Tuesday, June 9th. Please celebrate with us as we follow the same route we used in April (see attached map below) from anywhere along the route close to your home. While the teachers and staff parade by please wave to us! The parade will leave Llewellyn at 4:00pm, so depending on your viewing location it may take us a bit to get to you! Please help us spread the word so all students and family members can witness the parade. We can't wait to see your smiling faces as we say goodbye to the 2019-2020 school year and celebrate our 5th graders and Kinders who have achieved an incredible milestone in their lives.  

    To keep this a fun occasion I want to remind you of important safety guidelines to follow:

    •   View the parade with your family only!  Here is a map of the route: Llewellyn Parade Route.pdf 
    •   This is NOT a “play date.” Students and parents MUST NOT mingle. I know they all miss their friends, but social distancing is working. Let’s not mess this up!
    •   Carefully monitor your children at all times.
    •   Students must NOT join in the parade. You are to remain in your viewing area at all times.
    •   If the parade route does not pass in front of your home, make sure the spot you pick is 20 feet away from others. (I know we have all heard about the need to be a greater distance apart than 6 feet.)
    •   The Governor has asked that we all wear masks when outside. If you are not on your porch or front steps, I think this is best.
    •   Teachers will not be hanging around after the parade (practicing our social distancing), so please return to your homes when it is finished.
    •   Remember that some families have asked that their students NOT be photographed.  Please only publish pictures/video of your family to social media.

    I hope these guidelines do not offend anyone, but as the safety of our students and your families is a priority, I felt I must include them. I know you are all as worried about the health and safety of everyone as I am and want to help to continue the progress we have made towards conquering this pandemic. 

     

    Student Item Pick Up Day will be on Thursday, June 11th. Finally you will have an opportunity to come retrieve your child’s belongings. This will be another Drive-By event (we like themes!) in order to maintain safety and limit exposure.

    Register for Kindergarten Online!  Tell your friends & Neighbors!!!

    If you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, please register for kindergarten! To register, go to pps.net/kinderenroll.

You don’t need to register if your child attends a PPS Head Start or Pre-Kindergarten program.

    Coming soon: The Early Learner Programs team is developing a family-centered kindergarten transition plan. We know families are worried about the start to school, especially kinders.

    Dear Families,

     

    We are nearing this year’s finish line. Only seven school days remaining. But who’s counting?  While the end of the year always brings a bit of sadness, especially this year with all we have endured and been through together, remember there is still a lot of fun ahead!

     

    We have had to revise our largest end of the school year events (several times) in order to accommodate important events held at neighboring schools. We hope this revision will help you and your family as we know there may be some of you that would like to attend Graduation at Cleveland HS and the Sellwood Promotion. A few members of our staff would like to as well.  Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.

    District School Budgets and Fall Plans: The topics on all our minds!

    While I don’t have anything definite to share yet, we have been told that the budget will be better than expected due to cost saving measures (such as the furlough days, spending freezes, etc.).  This is great news!!!  

    Will we return to Llewellyn or continue Distance Learning (or both)? State recommendations for Fall should come out by June 8th. PPS will follow shortly after that with what schools will look like in PPS. Stay tuned!

    Dear Families,

    As we make plans to end the school year, my heart is full for our students, but especially so for our 5th graders who will be leaving us for middle school. We can all agree that this group has missed out on so many things: the 5th Grade Play, their music performance, OMSI Overnight Camp, and a traditional promotion ceremony. However, one thing this group of students has gained is the ability to be resilient and to face the unexpected with courage. Our personal stories emerge from our life experiences, both good and bad, and are part of what shapes who we are. While we are not sure how this pandemic will continue to affect us, one thing is certain, when our students are asked to write personal narrative essays next year, they will not be able to say they have nothing to write about.

    To honor our 5th Graders and all our students for their courage, effort, and ability to be SAFE, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and to BUILD COMMUNITY even during a pandemic, we will be holding a Drive-Thru Promotion (or needed option for those who do not use cars) for our 5th graders and one final Staff Parade through the school neighborhood. Details for the promotion and Parade will be shared very soon. As a heads up, Promotion will be held at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, June 9th and the Staff Parade will begin that same day at 4:00 pm. The parade will follow the same route as before. We would love your participation cheering on our 5th graders and celebrating our community during the Neighborhood parade, but want to remind everyone that we must ensure the safety of everyone by following CDC Safety Guidelines.

    On everyone’s mind these days is whether students will return to Llewellyn to attend school in person, will we participate in Distance Learning once again (with improvements), or will another option be used next fall? These are huge questions that at this time we are not able to answer. All decisions will be made following guidance by the CDC, the Oregon Department of Education, Governor Kate Brown, and PPS leaders.  
    As we wait for instructions, staff at Llewellyn have been busy making plans for next year, creating next year’s class lists, and preparing for a summer of professional development.  What are your family’s plans for next year? Please take a moment and let us know. If you are not planning on returning for the 2020-21 academic year, please email Stacey (slovett1@pps.net) the following information: The name of your student(s), and what school you will be attending (if you know; PPS, out of state, etc). We hope that you will choose to remain at Llewellyn and will spread the news to all incoming Kindergarten and families new to the Llewellyn area that Llewellyn is a strong community that can weather any “storm” together!
