Welcome back to Faubion PK-8 School! It is wonderful having our hallways filled with students once again. I hope everyone had a relaxing and rejuvenating summer. I am more than excited to lead Faubion School as your principal. Moving into this school year was much smoother than last! This summer was filled with creating goals, systems, and supports so we are better able to focus on teaching/learning, rather than construction and moving. The administration is pleased to roll out new academic and school climate goals, as well as a focus on quality and enriching learning activities. As this school year progresses, we will work together to ensure students at Faubion School receive a top-notch educational experience.
As September quickly approaches, there are a few events/activities that I’d like to put on your radar:
As we kick off this school year, we welcome support in a few areas. Please remember that we are a Standard Dress school, meaning we have uniform requirements. In addition, it is important that we supervise students in the Welcome Hall. Please reinforce Faubion’s expectations by helping our kiddos remain professional and respectful by keeping feet off of the furniture and not running in our halls. I also ask for time and patience in regard to pick up after school. I realize that our parking lot is fairly small and we have a lot of students, which means many parents driving through our parking lot all at once. As the year progresses, this system will become smoother and we are constantly reflecting and revising to improve all systems as our school’s population continues to grow!
Thank you for all you do for our students, staff, and families. I look forward to seeing you at events, drop off/pick up, volunteering, or in passing in the community. You are the backbone of Faubion and I look forward to this school year working together as partners is providing your child the best learning experience Faubion School can offer.

Students in Portland Public Schools’ Community Transition Program will get to learn valuable culinary skills, thanks in a part to a donation from a legendary singer.
Student and staff safety is a primary concern for Portland Public Schools. As part of the 2017 Health, Safety and Modernization Bond, approximately $5 million was allocated to upgrade school security systems across the district. That work, known as the Secure Schools Project, uses national best practice recommendations that focus on securing school perimeters and controlling access.
Fifth-grade students will have the opportunity to visit their future middle school during open houses scheduled from January to May. This is a great opportunity for families to visit neighborhood schools, focus option and alternative programs.
Portland Public Schools marked a significant milestone in the work to bring a long-term vision to the district earlier this month, with the first meetings of the PPS Guiding Coalition. The meetings, which included about 100 participants and were themed “Let’s Dream Together,” took place Dec. 7 at the Blanchard Education Service Center and all day Dec. 8 at Faubion School.
Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, said a new public and private partnership between Concordia University and Faubion Elementary is a shining example of making powerful changes in education that can lift an entire community.
