Greetings Lane Students, Families, and Community Friends,
Happy National Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month!
The month of October is filled with excitement as we celebrate the start of the fall season, look forward to cooler days and plan for many school events. Over the next few weeks, students at Lane will be attending school assemblies, participating in outdoor school, and traveling on academic field trips to explore beautiful landmarks in Oregon. Please be on the lookout for information detailing upcoming events and field trip forms from each grade level in the days ahead.
This week, students will be taking the MAPS Reading and Math assessment in their related classes. The results will help us better understand the academic needs of each student and adjust our teaching and learning practices at Lane to grant every child an opportunity to reach their highest potential. To make sure every student has a chance to demonstrate their strengths on the assessment, please encourage your child to get a good night's sleep and arrive at school by 9:15am each day.
Students will need to bring their charged Chromebooks each day to participate. As always, breakfast and lunch are free for every student and our doors open at 9am.
MAPS Assessment Schedule
MAPS Reading - Monday, October 3rd and 4th
MAPS Math - Thursday, October 6th and 7th
For more information please contact our Instructional Specialist and Testing Coordinator, Ms. Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents of Lane’s sixth (6th) graders, please hold the following dates for our 2022-23 outdoor school experience at Camp Namanu Ranch in Sandy, OR, October 23rd - 28th. More details on the way from the 6th grade team.
Unfortunately, we are still witnessing a small number of students engaging in acts that do not reflect our school values - Accountable, Safe, and Kind. Our school counselors have already started visits to classrooms to provide guidance lessons on bullying prevention and much more. However, school safety takes a team effort and we need your help. Please continue to talk with your child about “social media safety” and how to avoid conflicts that might be harmful to their social, emotional and physical health. Also, please encourage your student(s) to reach out to any adult in the building if they ever feel unsafe or witness others engaging in unsafe acts - see something, say something!
Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)
Our next meeting will be October 6th from 4 to 5 pm in our cafeteria. All care-givers and staff members are welcome! Check out this site for more LMS PTO information.
We are excited about the days ahead and look forward to partnering with you! As always, we appreciate your support and please reach out if you have any questions and/or concerns at (503) 916-6355.
Have a great week!
Dr. Sherree Coleman, Principal
Recently, we have received several questions from staff, families, and a media outlet, asking us to detail our efforts at maintaining optimal air quality in our schools. We understand the concern and the need for reassurance from our students and employees – that as a school system, we are taking prudent measures to promote a safe and healthy learning environment.
On September 20, 2022, the Portland Public Schools (PPS) Board of Education unanimously approved a historic agreement that centers Black students, and embarks on the development of a community plan for their future by making the voter-approved Center for Black Student Excellence (CBSE) a reality.
We are pleased to announce that we will host a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority. The clinic will be open to all, and offer first, second and booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available. Additionally, this clinic will include access to the new bivalent vaccine (12+). The CDC recommends COVID-19 vaccines for everyone 6 months and older, and boosters for everyone 5 years and older.
We are currently seeking membership applications for the district’s inaugural PPS Racial Equity and Social Justice Community Advisory Committee (RESJ CAC). This committee will advise both the Superintendent and School Board about about the racial equity and education impacts of policy decisions and work collaboratively to increase understanding and progress towards the PPS Racial Educational Equity Policy and the PPS RESJ Plan and Framework, PPS reImagined, and the PPS Strategic Plan.
