Principal's Message

  • Dear Sellwood Parents and Students,

    It is with great joy that we welcome you to the new schoolyear!  I am very excited to be your principal and to be working with such an incredibly gifted staff and equally supportive community. Our staff is one of the best to be found in the entire District, and we share the same vision of committing ourselves to ensure that each Sellwood student reach their full potential.

    Doors open for the school day at 9:05 and the tardy bell is 9:15 each morning. Being on time is crucial to your child’s success.  We take tardiness very seriously and will be working hard to get every student to school on time.  Your help is greatly appreciated and expected.

     We look forward to getting to know you and we are excited with you as we begin the new schoolyear together. Please contact us if you have any questions.

     Respectfully yours,

    Karl Newsome, Principal                          Marylyn John, Assistant Principal
