Welcome to Rosa Parks Elementary School in Portland, OR!

Rosa Parks Elementary K-5 School is nestled in the New Columbia neighborhood of North Portland, Oregon. Our administration, teachers, staff and volunteers work together to achieve our goal, "to place and keep children first in all we do." We have a diverse community with over 20 different countries represented, which is closely knit together into a larger community that works hard to help our students succeed. At Rosa Parks, "failure is not an option!"

CoreStable Fitness

The CoreStable Fitness class taught Tuesday and Thursday morning has been off to a strong start, as there have been participants from Rosa Parks staff, parents, and the students.  We will continue this CoreStable Fitness class after our Fall Break, and we hope to have even more of a turnout as people become more and more aware of what we are doing.  Feel free to spread the word as we look to improve our healthy habits both as an individual and as a community as a whole, one day at a time!  Here is a couple of video clip and a picture of what we have been doing; feel comfortable coming as you are, and at any level. See you there!

Contact Coach Da'Anyel McKelvey for more information about class dates and the cost.
