Portland Children’s Book Harvest: November 4-22, 2013
A MAJOR thank you to all who donated books during our Children's Book Harvest. Duniway donated 3,039 books to the Children's Book Bank - more than 5 TIMES our orignial goal. This is an amazing accomplishment. Thanks again to all who helped make this 1st annual event so successful.
All books collected by The Children’s Book Bank are distributed to children in Head Start and students who attend local Title I schools.

A Message from the Principal
When the news of a “conditional settlement” (now formally a signed tentative agreement) made its way through the halls and classrooms before school on Tuesday there was a huge collective sigh of relief. As a teacher, administrator, and PPS parent, I was thrilled to hear the news and now, several days later, it is wonderful to be back on track and focused once again on our important work. I want to acknowledge and thank our teachers for remaining professional and sensitive to the needs of our student during the last several weeks. And I would be remiss if I did not say thank you to our entire school community. I appreciated your patience, your restraint, and the support you provided for one another and our staff.
As Superintendent Smith mentioned in her letter on Thursday, our teachers will be moving towards ratifying the new contract next week and once that has occurred, the PPS school board will vote to approve the agreement. Once this has occurred, we will learn more about the new contract and the positive impacts it will have on the Duniway community. I will do my best to keep you all informed as we move towards budgeting and staffing for the 2014-2015 school year.
We have rescheduled our Connect to Kindergarten for Wednesday, March 5th. The program will run from 6:30-7:30 PM in the Duniway cafeteria. We look forward to welcoming families who will be new to Duniway in the fall of 2014.
Our Duniway Foundation annual auction will take place on Friday, March 7th. The foundations mission is to raise money for the sole purpose of increasing the number of teacher’s on staff at Duniway. This year, foundation dollars are paying for PE, library, and our ½ 5th grade position. Thanks for your on-going support of the foundation and your recognition of the vital role it plays.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!With regards,
