3. Internet access - The survey can be completed online, with computers or mobile devices, but prarents, or students, will need email access to print the attached form that will be generated and sent to you via email.
Please review and consider your elective choices BEFORE you start the survey. Please choose a variety of classes from each section, otherwise we will have to make elective choices for you, if you don't get your first preferences. It is suggested that students complete their forecasting survey at home, with parent support. If this is not possible, students may have access to school computers before and after school, or during lunchtime, to take the survey and print their form.

This week, we announced to our families and staff that all schools in Portland Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, May 8. To recover the lost instructional hours, we have decided to use our last designated makeup day as the final day of school, on Wednesday, June 12.
Two teams from Portland Public Schools won state championships at the Oregon Battle of the Books at Chemeketa Community College in Salem on April 6. James John Elementary School’s team won the title for grades 3-5, and West Sylvan Middle School’s squad prevailed in the 6-8 division.
