    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – November 10, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    Tomorrow, schools will be closed to honor veterans on Veteran’s Day.  We thank our veterans for serving our country with courage and honor.  My father served in the US army during World War II and was decorated for saving fellow soldiers from drowning while crossing a river in Germany.  If you know someone who has served in one of the US branches, past or present, please take a moment to share a few words or thoughts of gratitude.

    A shout out to our Sellwood athletes who played on our regional PIL youth football team! 

    Congratulations to our Cleveland Warrior 7/8 Football team! These young Warriors faced heat, smoke and torrential rain to qualify for the TVYFL playoffs this past weekend. This group had the courage to come out, the willingness to learn and improve as well as the perseverance to work through challenges. We are proud of our athletes and look forward to seeing what they can accomplish next season.

    Information for next season will come out in the spring and registration will open in May of 2023.

    Enjoy the three-day weekend ????

    Sincerely,

    Jeandré Carbone

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    I would like to give a special shout out to the girls’ PIL Cleveland Youth Volleyball Team, who ended the season by winning the citywide tournament last Saturday and were crowned "champs".  The whole team worked hard all season, came into the tournament seeded #8, immediately defeating #1 Lincoln in the first game and later clinching the championship.  Congratulation to Sellwood’s own champion athletes: Kate, Alli, Esme, Hadley, Noemi, Pearl, Addy, Juliette, Evelyn, Thea, and Vivian.  Go Warriors!

    Please read on about the Sellwood Foundation Annual Campaign, which is a vital component in our ability to staff our school programs.

    Also, conferences are coming up on November 21st and 22nd.  Below you will find information about signing up for appointments.

    Sincerely,

    Sellwood Principal’s Newsletter – October 28, 2022

    Greetings Sellwood Community,

    Last week, the Sellwood Foundation started their annual fundraising campaign. Next year, the southeast school boundaries are shifting, which will cause Sellwood’s enrollment to drop slightly over the next few years.  Every drop in enrollment carries with it the possibility of losing school staff. Therefore, the financial support provided by the Foundation will be more important than ever in order to maintain or fortify Sellwood’s course offerings and student support. Read below to learn how you can support the foundation’s annual fundraising campaign.

    Parent teacher conferences will be happening in less than a month.  The conference formats available are both virtual and in person. Next Wednesday, we will be sharing the schedule and all of the details for sign ups, so keep an eye out for that communication.

    Sincerely,

    Jeandré Carbone

  • Honoring Our Veterans

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Community,

    I want to recognize, on this Veterans Day, all those individuals who have served our country, especially those members of our families and local community who have previously worn a uniform. I want to take this moment to also thank the many veterans who continue their public service by choosing to work in the Portland Public Schools.

  • Keeping your Students Healthy During Winter

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Soomaali| Русский

    Dear PPS Families,

    There has been a surge in pediatric respiratory illnesses other than COVID-19 such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), rhinovirus/enterovirus, and influenza around the country this fall. Health departments in other states have seen children presenting with multiple respiratory illnesses. According to the Oregon Health Authority, rates of respiratory disease are currently relatively low in our state, but that could change based on the arrival of winter weather, and any increase in rates has the potential to overwhelm our hospital system.

    PPS takes these steps to ensure healthy school environments so that in-person learning can continue. In accordance with CDC guidance, we are also urging families to take steps to protect themselves and minimize the spread of communicable diseases in our schools.
