Announcing Permanent Principal at Rosa Parks, Tina Turner
Dear Rosa Parks Community,
I am pleased to announce that Tina Turner, who has been serving as interim principal at Rosa Parks Elementary School this school year, has been elevated to the permanent principal.
In her time at Rosa Parks, Principal Turner has strived to build relationships with families, staff, school volunteers and outside agencies. She is dedicated to social-emotional learning and racial equity and social justice practices, and has steadfastly monitored and evaluated educational programs to maintain high-quality performance objectives and standards.
Principal Turner is a Portlander through and through, having grown up in North and Northeast Portland, attended PPS schools and graduated in 1993 from Grant High School.
She got into education through the Portland Teachers Program, which aims to increase the number of educators of color in the Portland area. She taught for 10 years in PPS and the David Douglas School District before moving into administration.
We’re proud to give Rosa Parks Elementary School a leader who reflects the school’s community. Please join me in congratulating Principal Turner.
Dr. Cheryl Proctor
Deputy Superintendent, Instruction & School Communities
May is Mental Health Awareness Month: Information and Resources from PPS Student Support Services
While focusing on mental wellness is essential every month, May has been designated as Mental Health Awareness Month. Portland Public Schools is committed to uplifting wellness and to supporting all of our students to stay healthy, mentally and physically.
Dear PPS families and staff,
This week, Multnomah County health officials made an announcement about masking, due to the current COVID-19 surge. The Health Department is asking people to wear masks indoors until new coronavirus case counts and hospitalizations start to fall, and strongly recommend that people wear masks in schools. The current increase in COVID-19 cases is expected to peak in mid-June, when PPS’s school year ends.
On National School Nurse Day, we salute the four dozen nurses who serve Portland Public Schools.
Our school nurses have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic, taking on responsibility for a wholly different level of care and an illness that remains a mystery in many ways, even after two years.
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and Portland Public Schools recognizes the important contributions of Asian Americans Pacific Islander.
