    Right now, the cost of all promotion activities, including the 8th grade trip and yearbook, is $50 per student. During the month of April, all 8th grade students will have the opportunity to participate in a fundraiser.  The proceeds will be used to lower the cost requested from each student.

    • A total of 2 days of student suspensions will lead to loss of 3 activities

    • A total of 3 days student suspensions will lead to loss of all activities

  • Watch: Ockley Green students show their moves

    Can you Sous-sous? Or even Fondue? Well the middle school dance students at Ockley Green can do those dances and more. Under the direction of Mr. Damon, the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders are lined up at the ballet rail learning all about dance and getting a healthy workout too.
  • The young musicians at Ockley Green

    Richard Littledyke’s music class at Ockley Green Middle School is frequently the first place his students have ever received music instruction. And at no fault of the students. Three of the schools that feed into Ockley Green have only a half-time music teacher (Chief Joseph, Peninsula and King) and Beach, the last feeder school, doesn’t have a music teacher or program.



  • A message from Kristina Howard, Ockley Green’s new principal


    Greetings Ockley Green Families,


    Please be advised that students will be receiving their initial second semester schedules on 1/23/19.  Most students will see very few changes and most changes that do occur will be shifts to elective classes.  These changes are most often created by our master scheduling software as it works to honor students’ preferences with regard to the variety of diverse elective opportunities our school offers.  In some instances, students’ schedules might also change to meet requirements for their enrollment in health and/or movement classes. Some scheduling adjustments have additionally been made based on new opportunities for reading support classes.  Similarly, our math offerings have also been improved in order to lower class sizes and provide greater opportunities for math support.


    As has been done previously, schedule change request forms will be available shortly after the start of the semester.  Due to limitations with our district’s Synergy scheduling software we are unable to process schedule change request forms until after the semester starts.  An announcement will be be made in students’ advisory classes as soon as the forms are able to be provided. Schedule change request forms will be placed outside of the Student Support Team office (room 228).  These forms will be processed as quickly as possible by our school counseling staff (Jillian Stone and Brian Meyer). We will work to honor all change requests as best as possible.


    For those using StudentVue or ParentVue, please be advised that due to certain technical limitations with our district’s Synergy scheduling software, students viewing their second semester schedules through those portals may see some duplicate courses, unexpected additional periods, or similar errors.  Our PPS IT team has been made aware of these issues and we are working with them to resolve them. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.


    Thank you,


    Ockley Green Admin Team
