Portland Public Schools Launches First Community e-Newsletter
Posted on 11/25/2014

The Portland Public Schools today released the first edition of its new Community e-Newsletter. The e-Newsletter is designed to better inform parents and other community members about successes and initiatives in the public schools and spur more engagement in education.

“One of my core beliefs is that it takes an entire community to ensure the success of our public schools. In order to engage in our schools, the community needs to be informed. That is why the Portland Public Schools is introducing our first ever Community e-Newsletter,” said Portland Schools Superintendent Emmanuel Caulk. “We hope that this newsletter will help empower our community to participate in improving our schools so that we can be the best small urban school district in the country by 2017.”

The purpose of the Community e-Newsletter is to communicate successes and ongoing work at the district level and in the public schools.

For example, this issue of the e-Newsletter includes news items about the Portland Public Schools’ STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Exposition, an update about the plan for replacing Hall School and information on student projects.

The Community e-Newsletter will come out twice a year, in the fall and the spring. Caulk encouraged school families and their friends and neighbors, as well as other community members, to subscribe to the free Community e-Newsletter by sending an email to [email protected] with “Subscribe to e-Newsletter” in the message or subject line. The Community e-Newsletter can also be found on the district’s website, www.portlandschools.org. Click on “District” and go to the “Stay Informed” section of the site.


One news item in the new e-Newsletter is about Lincoln Middle School students
attending a residential science program at the Ferry Beach Ecology School
