• Mr. Robertson Named Principal of Astor School

    Dear Jason Lee Families,

    It is with great excitement, and a little bit of sadness, that I get to announce that our wonderful assistant principal, Mr. Robertson, has just been named the new principal of Astor School in North Portland! I’ve had the privilege of working with Mr. Robertson the past four years, and I’ve seen the dedication and heart that he’s brought to our school each and every day. From the moment the front doors open, Mr. Robertson’s enthusiasm and energy can be felt as he greets students and works to ensure that each and every one of them has what they need to be successful.

    This is a bittersweet moment as the recent announcement of school closures means that we won’t be able to finish out the year as we had hoped to, with the opportunity to see our wonderful students and families in person each day. Mr. Robertson will, however, be working at Scott School every Wednesday and Friday this month to help deliver lunches and curriculum to students and families. You are welcome to stop by to say hello to him any of those days. He’d love to see you!

    Although we will be miss him greatly, I am excited that Mr. Robertson gets to return to Astor School, as it is a community that is near and dear to his heart. Not only was he previously a teacher at Astor, but it is also the school where his own children attend, allowing him to see them each and every day.

    I am honored to call Mr. Robertson a friend, and I look forward to seeing and hearing about the amazing things that he will do at his new school, and the many return visits that he’ll have to Jason Lee.

    Please join me in giving a big congratulations to Mr. Robertson,
    Principal Cardona
