Dear Maplewood Families,
May has been a wet, wet month so far-making up for the dry April we had. Daily, Maplewood staff and teachers talk about how we wish we were back in our building with your children. The field looks so empty without students running around. You may have noticed we finally have a new blacktop on the playground. I hope to get the lines painted on it soon.
Thank you all for the kind thoughts and gestures you shared with teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. I too, am exceptionally grateful for the teachers and staff at Maplewood. I continue to be in awe of all the creative things teachers continue to do during the online instruction we are doing. We only have a few weeks left, please continue to encourage your children to engage and check in with their teachers and classmates.
PTA Meeting Tonight! Please join us 6:30-7:30.
9:30-10:00-First and Third
10:00-10:30-Kinder and Second
10:30-11:00 Fourth and Fifth
We will be wearing gloves and Masks and ask that you follow safety precautions as well. Masks, glove and social distancing are greatly appreciated. This activity is voluntary on the part of our teachers and staff-if your child’s teacher is not there, please understand that they are making that decision based on childcare or health needs.
Annie Bloom's Books in Multnomah Village has kindly offered to still hold the fundraiser we had planned from May 23rd to May 30th!
Order books online for curbside pick-up or delivery (free with a $10 purchase within a 3-mile radius or a $2 delivery fee). Online ordering is preferred but they are happy to place an order over the phone and to help you find a book. You MUST let them know, either on phone or in the comment box during checkout, to apply your purchase to the Maplewood Fundraiser. At the end of the week, Annie Bloom's will give 10% to the PTA!

Dear PPS Community,
The Portland Public Schools Board of Education is hosting its annual budget town hall virtually, so that community members can be heard, even in the midst of social distancing made necessary by COVID-19.
A public meeting of the Board of Education, acting in its capacity as the Budget Committee of Portland Public School District 1J, Multnomah County, Oregon, will take place during the regular School Board meeting on the 11th day of June at 6 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to receive any additional public comment related to the Superintendent’s budget message and Proposed Budget for the fiscal year July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which was presented on May 26.
