Young, Gifted & Black Award Ceremony
Every year Portland Public Schools students are nominated for Young, Gifted and Black recognition ceremony.
More than 180 student nominations from kindergarten through 12th grade were sent in this year and 24 finalists were selected.
We would like to recognize David Smith Miles for being chosen this year from Mrs. Burak’s class. It was a fabulous honor for David; he was one of only a few elementary age students receiving this recognition.
Congratulations David! We are so very proud of you and all the other recipients!
Wow! Carol Smith pictured with Obama.
Our 5th graders meet Mayor Hales.
