Principal's Message

View All
  • Welcome to the Elizabeth Hayhurst School! We're glad you're here!

    Hello!

     

    My name is DC Re-Bloom.  I have the distinct honor of serving as principal at the Elizabeth Hayhurst School, located on the ancestral home of the Atfalati band of the Kalapuya people, in SW Portland. Our community works relentlessly to uphold the memory of our namesake: the first president of the Oregon Parent Teacher Association in the early 1900’s.  With her work as our guideposts, we put community at the center of everything we do.  We know, beyond a doubt, that when educators, students, families, and neighborhoods come together, true equitable and democratic societies flourish and all students achieve at high levels. 

     

    Please take a moment to peruse our weekly newsletter, The Hayhurst Husky Howl, and our brand new website.  And, if there's ever anything you need, please reach out: 503-916-6300.  Or email me at drebloom@pps.net.

     

    In service,

    DC

  • West Sylvan Eighth Grader Wields a Mighty Pen

    Even as a small child, Miranda Yesser possessed a keen understanding of the mercenary nature of the publishing industry. 

    According to her one-page, tongue-in-cheek author bio, which hangs on a clothesline in English teacher Dr. Holly Graham’s colorful classroom, “Yesser began writing books at a young age, then trying to sell them to her family for 5 dollars a copy.”

    It might be time to scoop those copies up. Miranda recently received honorable mention in the annual Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for her short story, “Youth.”

  • The Arts Tax in Action: The HeART of Portland is Still Beating

    Students who took their first steps into PPS kindergarten classrooms in 2014 – the year Portland’s first-ever arts education tax went into effect – are now thriving sophomores.

    Evan Sampson is one of those sophomores, and he will have a chance to share his story at this year’s HeART of Portland, a showcase spotlighting the artistic accomplishments of some PPS’s most talented students.

    The two-week celebration of creativity will take place from April 16-28 at the Portland Art Museum. All exhibits and performances are free and open to the public.

  • Lincoln & Grant Constitution Teams to Compete Nationally

    This weekend, the Lincoln and Grant high school constitution teams will compete in the annual We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution National Finals in Washington, D.C. 

    Now in its fifth decade, the event brings together students from all 50 states for a series of mock congressional hearings on everything from the Constitutional Convention of 1787 to the separation of powers and the future of democracy. 

    The Lincoln and Grant constitution teams, under the instruction of Patrick Magee-Jenks and Angela DiPasquale respectively, have long histories of taking home trophies on both the state and national level. 

    Good luck to all!

  • Important Calendar Updates

    First, the end of this school year will still be June 14 for K-11 students, and it will be May 31 for seniors.
    Second, next year’s bell schedules will change for many students.
    Beginning next school year, we added 15 instructional minutes for elementary and middle school students and provided all middle school students with a seven-period day. Accommodating these changes while supporting 410 minutes per week of teacher planning time and aligning our transportation systems requires us to adopt common start and stop times.
    Third, next year’s school calendars are available.
