    From Jeff Waters, Assistant Principal

    Equity  -  Growth  -  Community

    Dear Families and Community,

    It was a busy week at Robert Gray Middle School. Take a look below for some celebratory highlights.

    • 3/8 - SAGE Vision 2030 Climate Fair
    On Wednesday, dozens of volunteer presenters set up shop in our gym to provide students with an all day experience to explore career opportunities related to science, engineering and climate. Sponsored by our school's Environmental Sustainability Club, this was the second annual Climate Fair held at Robert Gray Middle School. If you'd like to know more about Vision2030, check out their website;
    • 3/8 - Dance Showcase Sponsored by RGMS Black Student Union
    Also on Wednesday, local community leader and entrepreneur LaTosha Wilson joined students at lunch in the cafeteria to tell her story and explore the connection between dance, fitness and hip hop. Originally planned as part of our school's Black History Month experience, we had to reschedule (thanks to the surprise snow), but we know that Black history and Black excellence isn't just a February thing. Ms. LaTosha worked with us to bring the joy and fun of hip hop dance to RGMS this week. Students had a blast dancing together. Thank you to Ms. Ariel, Ms. LaTosha, and to our Black Student Union for bringing this experience to our school community. If you want to know more about Ms. LaTosha or her organization, check out the Hip Hop HIITS website;
    • 3/9 - Middle School Band Festival
    Yesterday, Ms. Miller took our Advanced Band to Jackson Middle School to compete in the Portland Public Schools Middle School Band Festival. Our students were excited to play in front of a large audience and inspired by their peers from across the district. Thank you, Ms. Miller, for doing a great job of getting our students out into the world, seeing and doing music together. Thank you, band students, for representing.

    We're committed to helping our students prepare for life, college and career, providing unique and special experiences and opportunities that celebrate the culture and diversity of our community, and TO one another FOR one another.

    I hope the work we do together inspires your student toward greatness. 

    Have a wonderful weekend, 

    Jeff Waters
    Assistant Principal
