  • Open House & Community Resource Fair - Schedule

    We're so excited to welcome you to our Open House and Community Resource Fair on Friday, August 26, from 1 to 4 p.m. 

    The intent of this event is to launch our new school year, support our students and families in preparing for a successful school year and build strong relationships between our school community - especially our students - and our school team.

    Among the things you can expect at our first family event of the year:

    • As part of the Community Resource Fair happening in the gym, students and families will be able to receive a backpack and school supplies, get a hair cut, and access a variety of community resources, such as the Multnomah County Library Gregory Heights library, healthcare, employment opportunities, chiropractor services and much more. Also, students will receive a ticket for a free Kona Ice, which they can pick up outside in the playground area.

    • Either before or after visiting the fair, students can also stop by and meet their new teacher! Teachers will be hosting tables under our covered basketball courts and are excited to meet their new students and families! Teachers will be at their tables from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Plan on stopping by and saying hello!

  • Earthstock Brings the Joy to the Crystal Ballroom

     Two students dance at Earthstock 2024.

    A little over 30 years ago, a Madison High School student named Joseph Janson had a simple wish. He wanted to go to a dance. But nothing was simple for Joseph, who was born with Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy and was confined to a wheelchair. 

    He confided his wish to Tony Nitz, who at that time was an educational assistant at Madison (now Leodis V. McDaniel High School). Tony had been working one-on-one with Joseph for months and he immediately went about making the young man’s dream come true.

    “The truth is, I would have done anything for Joseph,” Nitz said. “He was a unique person, and we had a very special bond.”

  • Mission Accomplished: Roosevelt Senior Helps Green Card Holders Obtain U.S. Citizenship

     Alondra in the Classroom

    For the past three years, Alondra Nieves Barajas has been both student and teacher.

    Most days, the senior from Roosevelt High School attends class, does her homework, and spends time with her friends just like any other 18-year-old. But on Wednesday nights, you can find her at the front desk, teaching adults – often much older than herself – the ins and outs of the United States naturalization test.

  • PPS Senior Program Manager of Energy & Sustainability Invited to White House Summit

    When Aaron Presberg first got the email from the White House, he thought it was some sort of prank. 

    Then he shared the message with a few colleagues who assured him that it was no joke, and the exciting reality that he had been invited to Washington, D.C. to present at the White House’s first-ever Summit for Sustainable and Healthy K–12 School Buildings and Grounds started to sink in.
