    Hi Riders,

    It’s hard to believe another year is almost over.  This week - we have two days of classes and three days of finals.  Please make sure your student uses flex time at the end of each day if they need to finish assignments or tests.  Teachers are available Wednesday and Thursday from 1:50 to 3:45 and Friday from 12:15 to 3:45.  

    At the end of July, look in the mail and your email for information about next year.  We will be changing our cell phone policy at the beginning of next year.  Students are expected to have their phones off and away during class time.  If you need to get ahold of your student and it’s an emergency, make sure you call the main office.  Students will not have access to their phones during class time.  We know that phones can be a powerful learning tool and they can also be a major distraction.  We want students focused on classwork during the school day.

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    Sorry this is coming out later than usual.  We had an amazing graduation celebration yesterday and sent the class of 2024 out into the world.  It’s always a day of mixed emotions for me.  I am so proud of our students and the work they have done to be ready for their beyond high school journey, and I am going to miss this group of students walking through the halls of Roosevelt.  A huge thank you to our support staff, counselors, and teachers for their ongoing support of our students!

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    What a great week to be a Rider!  If you haven’t seen The Addams’ Family musical yet, get your tickets for next weekend!  It is another amazing performance!  Our boys’ basketball team won the PIL championship last weekend and are ranked 3rd in state.  Come out on Tuesday at 7:00pm to see our Riders take on David Douglas at the Velt.  

    This week is also the middle of 3rd quarter, so progress reports are due later this week.  Check your mailbox next week to see your student’s progress in the quarter.  We will have Saturday School on March 9th.  Look for a separate email to sign up your student.  

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    I shared a few hours ago that our building had some vandalism and graffiti when we got here this morning.  I want to say thank you to our custodial staff for responding so quickly and helping to get the building ready for students.  Thank you to the teachers and other staff who helped to cover the graffiti so that students wouldn’t see it as they entered the building and went to classes.  I am always so grateful to our community and how we come together in moments like this.

    This is the last week of winter sports.  Shout out to swimming and wrestling who both had students qualify for state!  Our boys’ basketball team will be heading to state this year as well and will likely be the PIL champs!  

    Huge shout out to Jo Lane and our theatre program.  They were selected to be the first high school in Oregon to perform “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” which is now being performed off Broadway.  I know our students will create an amazing production!  Our Constitution Team is continuing to grow and had another great showing at the Con Team competition a few weeks ago.  Finally - congratulations to our Jazz Band for their multiple qualifiers for state!  

    Go Riders!

    Hi Riders,

    We are starting semester two today.  Please remind your student the importance of starting the new semester strong.  Attending class everyday, completing assignments on time, and attending flex are all ways to ensure your student is passing at the end of the semester.  There are a lot of events coming up on campus.  Check out the calendar in Trivory for dates and times of our games, plays, and performances.  

    Go Riders!

  • McDaniel Junior Takes Top Honors in State Solo Music Contest

    When Beckham Weatherby picks up his tuba, the rest of the world falls away. 

    “I don’t get that nervous and I don’t get stage fright at all,” he said. “I guess I got lucky with how my body reacts to performing in front of crowds.”

    Which is something the McDaniel High School junior has done quite a bit of lately. Not only is he a member of the prestigious Portland Youth Philharmonic (PYP) and the PYP conservatory orchestra, but he recently earned first prize in the tuba solo performance category at the Oregon State Solo Music Championships.

  • Bon Voyage, Miss Ellie: Teacher Retires After 50 Years at PPS

    Miss Ellie helps students hold a chick.

    The first things you notice when you walk into Ellie Jensen’s classroom at Boise-Eliot/Humboldt Elementary School are peace and warmth. Then you hear the laughter of children. Then you just might see two posters hanging on the walls that tell you a great deal about the kind of teacher she has been for the past 50 years. The posters simply say, “Leave a little sparkle wherever you go” and “Be a friend.”

    Jensen, known as “Miss Ellie” to the hundreds of students she has taught in her half a century as a Portland Public Schools educator, can’t help but light up a room. And she is a friend to all children.

  • Food Pantry Gets a Makeover, Courtesy of McDaniel’s CTE Art Students

    We dare you to drive by the Mainspring Food Pantry on the corner of 82nd Avenue and Fremont and not do a double take. Or a triple take. 

    Students from McDaniel High School’s art-focused Career Technical Education (CTE) class have spent the last four weeks turning the exterior walls of the pantry into one, huge, joyful mural as part of the course’s exploration of climate justice and community engagement.

  • Earthstock Brings the Joy to the Crystal Ballroom

     Two students dance at Earthstock 2024.

    A little over 30 years ago, a Madison High School student named Joseph Janson had a simple wish. He wanted to go to a dance. But nothing was simple for Joseph, who was born with Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy and was confined to a wheelchair. 

    He confided his wish to Tony Nitz, who at that time was an educational assistant at Madison (now Leodis V. McDaniel High School). Tony had been working one-on-one with Joseph for months and he immediately went about making the young man’s dream come true.

    “The truth is, I would have done anything for Joseph,” Nitz said. “He was a unique person, and we had a very special bond.”
