  • Before and After School Care

    Dear Faubion families,

     We are writing to share with you some information about before- and after-school care options at Faubion.  For the 2018-2019 school year, our new child care provider will be the YMCA of the Columbia-Willamette.  This is a change from our current provider.  Later this year, we will share contact information for the staff members who will be working with your child so you have the opportunity to ask specific questions about their programming.

    One change from our current provider is that the YMCA only enrolls students who are age 5 or older.  We will be working with central office staff to connect families with preschool students age 3 and 4 with before- and after-school care programs near Faubion, but we want you to know that preschool students are eligible to enroll with the Y as soon as they turn 5.

     We also want to take this opportunity to thank Peninsula/Neighborhood House, our current child care provider, for working with the Faubion community this year.  If you have any questions about the upcoming change, please reach out to Gary Gregoricka at 503-916-5686 or ggregoricka@pps.net.

     Thank you,

    Principal McCalley and Assistant Principals Williams and Gregoricka

    Dear Faubion Families,


    February will be a busy month here at Faubion school!  Over the next few weeks, our student body will be preparing a Black History Celebration which will be performed on February 23, 2018 at 1:30 p.m.  Our students will have the opportunity to share their learning or sing a song that celebrates African American culture.  Kindergarten through fifth grade will be performing.  Classroom teachers will continue the learning in their classrooms through conversations and exploration. 

    It is important to note that while we are highlighting African Americans and signifant historical events during February, we recognize that one cannot separate Black history from American history as a whole.  Though we are choosing to highlight certain African Americans through Black History Month, it is important to us that students learn about famous, and not as well known, African Americans through our regular curriculum and their own exploration of history. 

    We are also be celebrating Valentine’s Day with our annual “Friendship Dance.”  Family members are invited to come dance with their students during their assigned grade level time.  Please be sure to sign in at the office and then meet the class in the gym.  Friendship Dance times are publiciczied on the Friendship Dance flyer attached.  We would love to have parents volunteer to help us turn the Faubion gym into a fun-filled friendship zone with lots of hearts and streamers!  If you are interested in assisting in decorating, please contact the Faubion office at 503-916-5686. 

    The month of February is also when we begin looking ahead ot the 2018-19 school year.  We are holding two special events for families with incoming pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.  If you know a family with a student who will be 3, 4 or 5 years old by September 1, please pass on a special invitation to visit Faubion.  Please pass on the PK & Kindergarten Open House flyer and encourage them to contact Faubion as soon as possible.

    February is also cold and flu season and we have been hearing many questions about when to send students to school. Luckily, here at Faubion we have plenty of hand soap and tissues to help with runny noses and coughs. We want your child here each and every day!

    You only need to keep your child home if their symptoms include:

    • Fever higher than 100.5
    • Vomiting 
    • Diarrhea (more than 2 loose stools in 24 hours OR sudden onset of loose stools)
    • New skin rash, sores, or wounds (not previously diagnosed by a health care provider)
    • Live lice infestation


    Please help us keep our school healthy by encouraging your children to wash their hands frequently, cover their coughs, and avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth.

    Lastly, have you checked Faubion’s Facebook, Instragram or Twitter lately?  We are posting great examples of learning at Faubion on an almost daily basis and would love to have you follow us! 

    Yours in Education, 

    Principal McCalley, Assistant Principal Williams and Assistant Principal Gregoricka

  • Message on April 20 student walkouts

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Community,

    Please know that in collaboration with school administrators, district leadership actively monitored the hundreds of mostly middle and high school students who walked out of our schools today as part of a national demonstration against violence in schools. I am pleased to say that, by all reports, this was a peaceful and respectful event with no serious incidents. While these actions were not district-sponsored activity, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all who helped keep students safe, starting with the students themselves who remained organized, calm and intentional throughout. Others who helped include Portland police, PPS security, and other PPS staff. Thank you all.

  • A message from Deputy Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Curtis on 2018-19 staffing levels

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Portland Public Schools is in the process of allocating teaching staff at schools throughout the district. As has been true for many years, we are working within a budget that has been chronically underfunded by the state, and we are doing our utmost to make the most of the resources we have. Understandably, parents, students and PPS staff want to know what will happen at their specific schools. While precise allocations won’t be known until enrollment figures become clear in the fall, we can share what we know at this point, and answer many of the questions we have heard to date.

    It’s been 50 years since some impassioned students led the movement to rename their school after Martin Luther King, Jr. Last Friday, the community turned out in force to show appreciation, and to honor Dr. King with a huge celebration at the school.
