Where: Madison High School Cafeteria, 2735 NE 82nd Ave., Portland, 97220

Members of the Scott School Community should attend to learn more about the plan, which converts Scott into a K-5 school and sends 6-8 grade students to Roseway Heights. Please wear red to show your support for Scott School.

Additional information on PPS’s plan for new middle schools is available here https://www.pps.net/Page/10776.

Summary of Plan posted by PPS: “Portland Public Schools is moving toward a middle school model for students in grades 6-8 as a way to provide expanded options and stronger programs to more students. In April, the PPS Board directed the district to open two middle schools by fall 2018 at Harriet Tubman and Roseway Heights. District planners have developed a detailed framework for the components of exemplary middle schools to be used as a guide.”

 

First PTA Meeting and Potluck

On Wednesday, September 13th, the PTA will hold its first PTA Meeting and Potluck of the new school year. Every member of the Scott School Community is invited to attend.

Starting at 6pm, we will share a meal at tables under the Covered Pavilion in the back of the school while the PTA Board welcomes everyone to the new year and introduces themselves. Attendees are encouraged to bring a food dish to share.

We plan to share a lot of useful information including ways to get connected at Scott. We will also share the schedule for upcoming PTA meetings and other Scott School related activities. We hope you are able to join us! Oh…and the best part? Ice cream desert will be provided. 🙂
