Summer Verification of Class Placement

Faubion families will receive notification of their child’s class placement at the Tubman transition site via the mail by the third week of August. Letters from the principal and the upcoming year’s teacher, along with registration materials and a requested supply list will be mailed home.

Are You Moving? 

As we attempt to verify the number of classrooms we need at specific grade levels for the 2015-16 school year, it is imperative that we maintain an accurate count on students we will have enrolled at Faubion PK-8 for the upcoming school year. If you are aware that you will be moving from the Faubion attendance area next school year, please contact the school office at 503-916-5686 as soon as possible. If your residence changes over the summer months, please notify Principal Lee (llee@pps.net).   Having this information in a timely manner is key to insuring student records are transferred and your child is able to have a smooth transition to his/her new school.
