    Dear LMS Families,

    The leaves are starting to turn and it's a little rainy out there - welcome fall! We are excited to work in a much cooler building now that summer is behind us. Please pay extra attention at pickup if you are driving or walking across the street. Sometimes the rain really complicates things and roads become slicker; we appreciate you helping us keep our community safe!

    Thank you for attending our Back to School Night last week - it was so wonderful to have you all in the building to see our spaces and meet our teachers and staff. We love having our school filled with so much positive energy! If you weren't able to make it, we missed you!

    LMS staff continue to work with our students around expectations at school and we are seeing growth and improvement! Now that they have their Chromebooks it is very important they remember to bring them fully charged each day. If this is a hardship, or you realize your student is struggling, please reach out to us so that we can make arrangements for your student to leave it at school. Much of our curriculum is online now, so without these devices learning is a challenge.

    We are still looking for 4 paraeducators, a PE teacher, and a Russian Immersion teacher, and a part-time Spanish speaking educational assistant. The jobs are posted here - please share with people in your community!


    LMS SUN Program

    Blue flyers went home with students last week to sign up for fall session. You can find the information HERE and HERE.

    Last week we saw fencing demonstrations during recess to get students excited about Fall programming - sign up today! Please reach out to Will Grebner, SUN Coordinator, at if you have any questions.

    PPS Flyer with students in background

    Today was disappointing – for us but, most importantly, for our students and families. The Portland Association of Teachers offered no counter proposals – and yet declared impasse.

  • Update on the Second Day of Mediation

    PPS Flyer with students in background

    Today, we offered compromises that would both reward our educators and further our students’ success. We were able to raise our compensation offer substantially. We are not there yet, but we are committed to the hard work of finding common ground.

  • Update on the First Day of Mediation

    PPS Flyer with students in background

    Today, we started the state-led mediation process with one priority: our children’s success. We offered compromises that would keep that vision at the heart of our work – and maintained our position on proposals that would negatively impact students.
