Connie Cheifetz

Hi! My name is Connie Cheifetz and I am da Vinci's community liaison.  What does a community liaison do, you may ask... well my answer would be "A little bit of everthing!"

If you're looking for me chances are you'll find me in the front office answering the phone and fielding questions from students, parents and folks in the community at large. My favorite thing is helping to connect folks to the school, spark interest in special projects and be sure students, parents and teachers have what they need to thrive.

I've been at da Vinci since the beginning, even before we opened in the fall of 1996, so I have answers to many questions. And if I don't, I can usually find out who can answer your question.

If you are interested in helping out, have a question or an idea, I am a good place to start! My official hours are 8:00 am - 4:30 pm and I can be reached at 503-916-5356 or conniec@pps.net

I am retiring at the end of this school year. All are invited to my official Good-Bye Party, may 21st 6-9 pm at the Jupiter Hotel!
