  • Support our School Library

    Hello Hosford Families! 
    This year, instead of fundraising through a book fair, we are cutting out the middle man (and the cheap erasers!) and doing an amazon registry. This way, you can buy us books directly off our list, and they will be sent to the library and put directly in the hands of students who desperately want them! Books on our wish list range in price, and you can also purchase a gift card within your budget. Search "hosford library" in the amazon registry department, or follow the link below.
    Thanks to all of the folks who have already donated through school pay and made the purchase of so many wonderful books possible.

    Thanks for your support of our library!

  • Student Health Centers

    PPS partners with Multnomah County Student Health Centers (SHCs) to keep students healthy and focused on school. There are 10 SHCs throughout Multnomah County. The SHC is like having a doctor's office in your school. The center serves K-12 students and does not have any out of pocket costs for the student or family.

  • Support Ms. Sayler's Class Through DonorsChoose.org

    Hello Hosford Community!  
    My name is Laura Sayler and I am writing on behalf of my position as an 8th grade math teacher. I applied for a teacher grant through DonorsChoose.org to get classroom whiteboard tables. This past summer I painted my own classroom tables with whiteboard paint and the kids are LOVING it! Something about it being non-permanent is really supportive for kids with anxiety around math. I’ve also found it’s great for problem solving and brainstorming! 
    The only problem is that DIY tables have to be redone each year or so and can’t withstand the amount of work my kids are putting into them! I am asking for your support to help all of my students each year have access to a writable table to help them work through their math and thinking.  
    Any little bit helps and I thank you so much for even considering this! Please use this link to spread the message to anyone you know who is able and interested in supporting students’ math growth in this way! 
    Link to DonorsChoose Donation Page 
    In addition to our appreciations and learning, you will receive handwritten thank you and pictures of our work as our heartfelt thank you! 
    Thank you for your time, 
    Laura Sayler

  • HEART of Portland

    March 19th, 2018
    Dear Parents & Students of Hosford Middle School:
    I’m thrilled to announce that Scott Johnston and the Hosford music program have been invited to perform in The HEART of Portland: A PPS K-12 Arts Showcase at the Portland Art Museum in the Kridel Grand Ballroom on Wednesday, April 11th at 6:30pm. This evening reception performance will showcase music, dance and theatre in the main ballroom to kick off a two-week, 90-piece visual arts gallery hosted by the museum.
    In its fourth year, The HEART of Portland performance is an avenue for PPS to thank taxpayers for their generous support and investment in arts education. In addition, the show will bring ample amounts of exposure to your school’s music program and raise the profile of arts education in Portland. Attendees for the evening will include school board members, the superintendent and several keystone figures from Portland’s arts, media and political sectors.  The show is free to all who attend. Bring family and friends!

    From a logistical standpoint, you’ll receive a detailed itinerary for the night of the show that will give specific information about when your child needs to report for the show and general performance notes. You can expect to receive that next week.

    Again, congratulations on being accepted to perform in The HEART of Portland! I’ll be in touch soon.

    Warm regards,
    Kristen Brayson
    PPS Arts TOSA (Teacher On Special Assignment)
