  • 2021 Successful Schools Survey

    Please be sure to take the 2021 Successful Schools Family Survey soon! Families have until March 19th but the sooner the better. We are tracking who takes it and we are hoping for 100% participation. It helps PPS understand your experience as a parent or guardian. This important information will guide the district and determine the future of our schools. If you have children at more than one PPS school, please complete one survey for each school your children attend.

    We know that you all are suffering from information and email overload so we thank you and appreciate you!

  • Meet our School Counselor

    Meet Lewis School Counselor, Ms. Sundberg, and her friends, Evergreen and Flashlight.

  • HAT DAY!

    Lewis, it’s time for a PTA Spirit Day! Join your classmates and teachers on Friday, January 22nd for Hat Day!  Wear your favorite cap or make your own crazy creation! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

  • Soup and Oatmeal Food Drive

    Help keep Lewis families fed and warm this winter. This January we are collecting donations of canned soup or boxes of instant oatmeal (variety pack). You can drop off the food at the front entrance of the school between 8-12 Monday through Friday, or at library pick up. 

    We are also looking for Care Team volunteers.  We need help on Friday mornings grocery shopping, packing bags or making deliveries. If you are interested, please email lewiselementaryptaor@gmail.com and we can work together. 

  • Stock up on Masks

    Stock up on masks of all sizes and help Lewis PTA. We’ve partnered with a local, family business run by a PPS parent to bring you a great selection of masks for toddler, children, teens and adults. Masks will ship directly to you and 20% of the sales comes back to Lewis. You can share this link with family and friends, too!

  • LIBRARY UPDATE

    Library pick up and drop off will move from 3/3 to 3/18 due to limited in-person instruction (LIPI) during this time. For ALL FAMILIES NOT PARTICIPATING IN LIMITED IN PERSON INSTRUCTION, we will relocate to the back door near the garden off of SE Cooper and SE 43rd. Hours and days remain the same. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 2 to 3 pm.

    Kindergarten families participating in Limited In Person Instruction may continue to pick up library books on the playground in our usual spot, but should plan to come after students are picked up at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, if possible.

    Please let me know if you have questions or need to arrange for an alternate pick up date/time.

    Thanks! - Ms. Lisa

    Help the PTA While you Shop 

    You can fundraise for Lewis PTA while doing the things you normally do.  PTA received more than $300 from Amazon Smile and Fred Meyer Rewards in the fall.  It’s easy to link your accounts so the PTA gets a small donation every time you shop. 

     

    Go to www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards to create an account or link your existing account up to the Lewis PTA, #85340. 

     

    Next time you are purchasing on Amazon, just start by clicking here: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/45-3483149

    Shopping on your phone? Download or update to the latest version of the Amazon Shopping app on your phone. Open the app and find 'Settings' in the main menu (☰). Tap on 'AmazonSmile' and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone.

    Garden Party Success! 

    Thanks to all the families and parents who came out this weekend for our first garden party of the season. We are always excited to see new faces and welcome everyone to the garden. It is truly a resource for the community, and we encourage everyone to get involved if they are interested. To that end, volunteers continued the revamping of the rain gardens. These two areas on the blacktop of the playground are a great resource - they filter the storm water run-off from the blacktop, with the roots of the plants filtering out any pollutants. Additionally, they help cool the playground space in the warmer months, and new donations of native plants will help this area grow and develop as a habitat for beneficial animals and insects. Our next garden party will be Saturday, March 13. We will be working on the back garden to ready it for planting and the return of kids in April. 

     

    Love Over Hate Signs 

    For those of you who ordered signs from PDX Love Over Hate, we will be placing them outside of school this Friday for pickup between 9 and 12.  There will be a checklist with your first name and last initial on it.   

    Please 

    • Take your sign. 

    • Take your yard stake. 

    • Check off your name on the list. This is very important for us to know who has yet to receive their signs.   

    Thank you! 

    If you need to arrange an alternate pickup please text Bridget at (503) 367-0882. 

     

    Thank You!

    Thank you to all who brought gift cards to support families without power during the snow and ice storm!  It’s wonderful to see the community come together!
