    enrichment definition

    At Peninsula, reading, writing and math are fundamental. Enrichments are essential. They bring pleasure to reading and creativity to expression. Enrichment classes teach cross-curricular skills that demonstrate to students how math applies to art, music, physical education and beyond. Enrichments are the colorful ties that bind the fully educated child together. Each of these certified teachers has a "specialty," complete with its own set of adopted educational standards. Most enrichment teachers have stand-alone classes and all collaborate with homeroom teachers to make curricular connections. We want students to know math doesn't just happen in "math class," it's all around us. Enrichments are fundamental to student engagement in school. Enrichments foster agency within a child and their ability to participate in their education.  

    Each month you will receive a newsletter from all of us updating you on what is happening in enrichments.

    ParentVue

    ParentVue is a website that offers secure, private access to school and student information, including class assignments, attendance, emergency contacts on file, the school calendar, and teacher contact details. Parents and guardians can see information for all of their students who attend Portland Public Schools in one place. At the Middle School and High School levels student's assignments and classes grades are also available in ParentVue. 

    Click on the following link to get started using ParentVue. Each parent or guardian will need an Activation key (that is linked to the email address that is on file).  The school secretary can supply the activation key. Note: if you are calling the school for the activation key, you must call from a phone number on file.

    ParentVue start-up information

    Each student also has an account to access the student version of this website, called StudentVue.

     


    Free and Reduced Lunch

    One Free and reduced lunch application need to be completed per family, per year. The application must be processed and approved prior to students receiving lunch at a reduced cost. If the student is not approved before the first day of school they will have to pay full price until it has been approved (approve is not retroactive). Submitting the application early can help to ensure that you won’t end up with an unexpected lunch balance. 

    Free and Reduced Lunch forms are found at SCHOOLCAFE.COM You will need your student's ID number to complete the paperwork. If the student is a returning Portland Public Schools student their ID number can be found on their report card or in ParentVue. If the student is new to Portland Public Schools, you can get an ID number form the school office.

    *Please note that if you have students at schools where lunch is free for all students, you still need to apply for students attending Peninsula.
