    Students start the 5K run
    The Sellwood 5k was a great success! We more than doubled our participant numbers than last year, but the foundation continues to need support. Thank you to all those that came out and those who donated online. Go Panthers!
  • Sellwood Student Charlie Abrams - Two Portland students being recognized for their efforts to address climate change

    Two Portland middle schoolers are fighting to address climate change. It's a fight to educate local students and lawmakers that's now being recognized around the world.

    "We're the ones affected the most by climate change," said Jeremy Clark. "We have to do something."

    Eighth graders Jeremy Clark and Charlie Abrams began their mission after Clark saw a cover of National Geographic Magazine.


Principal's Message

  • August 20, 2019

    Welcome Sellwood Students and Families,

    Bethany and I are honored to serve as the administrative team for Sellwood Middle School. We have received a warm welcome from families, staff, and community members and are very grateful for the opportunity to lead an excellent school with a rich history and supportive community. The 2019/20 school year will begin on August 28th for 6th-graders, and August 29th for 7th and 8thgraders, and we could not be more eager and excited to meet students and parents.

    During the past month, we have had many interactions with parents, teachers, and students. From these conversations, it is clear that Sellwood families and staff are motivated to foster a strong community and provide the best possible academic experience for Sellwood students. We look forward to developing relationships and working with all members of the community to provide a world-class educational experience for each child at Sellwood.

    As your Principal and Assistant Principal, it is important to us that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—are happy to be here! This outlook will enable us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment. We welcome your input and our doors are open. Feel free to call to set up an appointment or email to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!


    Jeandré Carbone, Principal
