A Message from the Principal

April 22, 2015

Dear Whitman Families,

With mixed emotions, I am letting you know that I am leaving Whitman at the end of the school year and will become principal at Glencoe Elementary starting in July.

I have felt honored to serve these last 11 years as Whitman's principal and am extremely proud of our students, staff and families and the things we have accomplished together.  In the last 11 years I have had the experience of getting to know so many of you, your families and the strengths you bring to make Whitman such a great place to be.  I can honestly say I have had experiences here that I will most likely not have anywhere else like kissing a goat, becoming an ice cream sundae, and painting my hair all the colors in the rainbow.  I have also enjoyed working with a fabulous group of teachers to provide a quality education to all the students at Whitman.

I know that transition is hard, but I also know that you will support the success of the next principal. Portland Public Schools leaders in our Human Resources department are inviting you to a meeting at our school to talk about the characteristics you would like to see in Whitman's next principal. I encourage you to attend that meeting.

Our meeting is scheduled for May 4th from 6:00 – 7:00 pm at Whitman.

I encourage you to attend the meeting and share what is important for you to have in your next school principal.  Whitman is a strong and proud community.

I look forward to finishing the year with determination and with celebration for all that we have achieved together.


Lori Clark
