Congratulations 8th-Grade Harriet Tubman Middle School Students!
We are so excited to celebrate your promotion to high school. Our celebration will be on June 4th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. Details are important for a successful parade. Families of HTMS 8th-grade students, be sure to view our slide show regarding our Promotion Parade!
Hello Harriet Tubman Community!
All student items left in lockers will be placed in a bag for pick up. There are specific dates for each grade level to pick up locker items. This will be your only opportunity to pick up locker items. After June 10th all items will be removed from the building.
The distribution will be at the Flint Street entrance. No one is permitted in the building.
Please be sure to wear masks to ensure safety for all.
Register for Kindergarten Online!
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. The process takes 20-30 minutes and school staff will follow up with you later in the summer. With schools closed, online registration is the easiest option, but paper options will be available soon. You don’t need to register if your child attends a PPS Head Start or Pre-Kindergarten program.
¡Inscripciones para el Kínder en línea!
Si su/s hijos/as van a tener 5 años antes del 1ero de septiembre, por favor inscríbalos. Diríjase a: https://www.pps.net/kinderenroll para inscribir a sus hijos/as en Kínder. El proceso dura entre 20-30 minutos y el personal de la escuela los contactara después en el verano. Ya que las escuelas están cerradas, tener las inscripciones en línea es la opción más fácil, pero muy pronto la hoja de inscripción estará disponible. Si sus hijos/as están asistiendo a un programa escolar de PPS Head Start o Pre-kinder, no es necesario que usted los/as inscriba.

PROGRAM CANCELED FOR SUMMER 2020
Thank you for your interest in the Leap into 9th Grade summer program. Due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and budget constraints, Leap into 9th Grade will not take place this summer. Other summer enrichment opportunities for incoming 9th grade students will be shared shortly.
The 2019-20 calendar has been updated to reflect the furlough as well as changes to the end of the school year. It is also posted on the district website. The last day of school for students is now Wednesday, June 10th, with the addition of the 3 snow/emergency days.
As our community deals with fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, we want to make Portland Public Schools families aware of a state benefit to help pay for food. The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer program, or P-EBT, is available to help families offset the cost of meals that would have been consumed at school. It is administered by the Oregon Department of Human Services.
The P-EBT benefit is available to families with a student who qualifies for free or reduced-price meals and any student enrolled in a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. For those families:
For families not currently eligible and seeking benefits:
For assistance with submitting a meal application, please contact the PPS Meal Benefits Office: email@example.com or 503-916-3402.
For Pandemic-EBT questions, please contact the Oregon Department of Human Services.
CURRENT 5TH, 6TH, AND 7TH GRADE FORECASTING WILL BE DUE BY APRIL 30th.
You will need to use your PPS student number to take the survey (lunch number). Please work carefully as you may only take the survey once. If you have any questions please contact Assistant Principal Cleann Brewer.Step 1. Read the course descriptions in the survey.
Step 3. Take the forecasting survey for the grade you are currently in (ex. you are a 5th grader, you take the 5th-grade survey, you are a 6th grader, you take the 6th-grade survey, you are a 7th grader, you take the 7th-grade survey).
Two teachers from Portland Public Schools were named finalists for the OnPoint Educator of the Year Awards, leading a strong showing by PPS in the OnPoint Excellence in Education program.
