Message From Principal
As educators, we know that to demonstrate the relevance of classroom instruction in the real world and extend classroom instruction it is essential to enrich the classroom units with first hand experi-ences whether it be with an actual artist, scientist, or visiting places where students apply their classroom learning. Although these experiences are important, they are not part of the core curricu-lum provided by Portland Public Schools, field trips and guest speakers are optional. To provide these important experiences, schools or parent groups volunteer to fund these optional opportunities. The Woodlawn School PTA is committed to fundraising the necessary money to subsidize the enrichment opportunities for all students organized by classroom teachers. This year’s enrichment opportunities include field trips to Portland Zoo, Oregon’s Children Theatre, Finding Kind and Bully movies, and OMSI.
The PTA has been a crucial component of our community with all that we have gone through this year. We would not be where we are today without their strong voice. I want to recognize and thank these dedicated community members. The endless hour of volunteerism and devotion to our students is in-spiring and admirable. I am very proud to have worked alongside of such a kind and respectful group of people and look forward to next year. A huge thank you goes out to Cheryl Russell PTA President, Rachael Banks, PTA Vice President, Connie Umphress, PTA Secretary, Lluvia Merello, PTA Treasure, Luretta Tinnon, PTA Treasure, Jeff Gierer, PTA Special Education Representative, and Mick Forstag, Staff Representative. I would also like to thank our Site Council Community representatives including Tim Tinnon, Site Council Facilitator, Luke Grosser, Community Representative, Cheryl Russell, Parent Representative, and Rebecca Harrison, Parent Representative. Angel Rodriguez is to be commended for his undying support during the enrollment and balancing process. Again it has been an honor and a pleasure working with all you this year and I look forward to creating great things for our school next year.
Woodlawn Students Learn With Music
During the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years, every Woodlawn student explored music through grade-level residencies with the Oregon Symphony, Portland Taiko, the Oregon Children's Theater or Oregon Trail artist Rick Meyers. Read more about our partnership with The Right Brain Initiative.
