Sabin School News

From Sabin PTA:

Hello from Sabin School! Sabin is located right in the middle of the Sabin neighborhood, but we include parts of King, Alameda, and Irvington in our boundaries as well.

Fall is here and kids are back to school at Sabin. We are growing! We have well over 400 students this year. We have almost 90 kindergarten students enrolled this year—so many that we’re about to add a fourth kindergarten classroom to bring down class sizes and help those kids succeed.

PPS changed the Sabin/Alameda boundary last year, and we’re excited to welcome new families to the school and help them get settled. We also have quite a few new teachers and staff this year. The school is just humming with positive energy.

We also have exciting news to announce—Sabin has been fully authorized as an International Baccalaureate World School! There are only a few other IB schools in Portland, and gaining authorization is really something to be proud of. Kudos to Sabin teachers, administrators, and students for all their hard work!

Sabin is a great place to volunteer and get involved, whether you have kids at the school or not. For more information, check out sabinparents.org.

SALT to Address Sabin Reboundary

From the NECN Safety and Livability Team:

Chris Lopez from NECN’s Safety & Livability Team here.

SALT has added a community discussion on the Grant High School Boundary Advisory Committee to its agenda for this coming Monday’s meeting. The prospect of a boundary change between feeder schools in the Grant cluster has fomented discontent within our Northeast Portland neighborhoods and SALT would like to give our neighbors another venue and opportunity to voice their hopes and concerns for an amicable solution.
Although the neighborhoods may have different perspectives on this issue, this is an opportunity to discuss common concerns or suggestions.

In addition, the Police Bureau will be making a presentation regarding budgeting priorities and soliciting feedback (probably at a later date) on community priorities for the police budget. We have added a few more items to our original agenda which is attached to this email.

The SALT meeting is this Monday, January 17th at the NECN offices, 4815 NE 7th Ave. It starts at 6:30pm and should adjourn by 8:30pm.

Hope to see you there,

Chris Lopez
Chair, NECN Safety & Livability Team

Meeting Agenda

PPS holds forum on Grant-area K-8 boundaries

Meeting Flyer
From Portland Public Schools:

Northeast Portland families and neighbors are invited to a meeting Thursday, Jan. 13, to weigh in on two possible options — including potential boundary changes or grade reconfigurations — to address both low enrollment and overcrowding in several Grant neighborhood schools. The two-hour meeting will start at 6 p.m. at Beaumont Middle School, 4043 N.E. Fremont St.
The school district is focusing on:

•Low enrollment in grades 6-8 at Sabin PK-8 School (where the ACCESS Program also is located)
•Low neighborhood enrollment at Beaumont Middle School
•Overcrowding at Alameda Elementary School
A boundary advisory committee — including two parents from each of the schools (chosen by school principals and/or site councils), neighborhood association members and district personnel — has met three times since early December to consider solutions.

After reviewing a number of possibilities, the committee is forwarding two options for community consideration and feedback at the Jan. 13 meeting.
