Welcome to Rosa Parks Elementary School in Portland, OR!
School News and Announcements
Fall Break is September 22nd-October 10th!
Believe it or not, we have almost completed two months of school. I am amazed at just how much we have accomplished during these first few weeks that school has been in session. We have completed all of our beginning of the year testing and reading groups have begun. We have had Back-to-School Night along with a family picnic, a great Reading kick off and Parent / Teacher Conferences. With our early start it has been so exciting to see how well the students have adjusted to being back in school!
Our Fall Break is September 22nd through October 10th and students will be out of school. However, some students will be invited back during the third week of our Fall Break for intervention support in reading or math. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you to let you know whether or not your child will need to attend Intervention Week (10/6-10/9). School hours during Intervention Week will be 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Boys & Girls Club Hours During Intersession
The Boys & Girls Club will be open during our intersession to accomodate our students and families. Their hours during intersession week will be:
Monday - Thursday: 12:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Friday: 12:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
**You can register your child at the Boys & Girls Club for only $5 a year.
