Dear Beverly Cleary community,
I am pleased to announce that Rebecca Presley will be the new principal at Beverly Cleary K-8. Principal Presley comes to PPS from Glendale, Arizona, where she served first as the assistant principal and then principal at William C. Jack Elementary School. Under her leadership, Rebecca helped implement guiding coalition meetings to focus on strategic goals, hired and retained diverse staff to foster an inclusive and welcoming community, and developed multi-tiered systems of support across grade levels and programs.
Dear PPS Families,
As we prepare for the winter sports season, we want to share a few reminders for our spectators.
Dear families, students, and colleagues,
It has been a joy to visit learning spaces over the past four months and see our students reengaged in their classroom learning and school activities. I am pleased to observe our students interacting with peers and diving into new curriculum materials.
This has been a very productive time for Portland Public Schools. My appreciation to all the dedicated Team PPS members who work everyday to make our school system better and stronger.
