Dear Jason Lee families,
Our staff is preparing to welcome our students back to school in a week, starting with students in grades 1 through 5th on Tuesday, August 29. We can't wait to meet everyone!!
Kindergartners who are already registered should have received an appointment to meet with teachers prior to their start of school. Family meetings with the Kindergarten team will be held Aug. 29 and 30, and the first practice day of school will be either August 31 or Sept. 1. The first full day of kindergarten for all students is Tuesday, September 5.
If you are planning to attend Jason Lee for the first time and haven't registered, you can do so anytime online at
Bus riders: You can find our school bus routes and maps here:
You don't need to sign up to ride the bus, only show up at a stop and let the driver know you're going to Jason Lee Elementary. They will get your information the first time you ride the bus.
Our school office is open every school day from 7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. You can reach us at 503-916-6144.
We can't wait to see our students!!
We're so excited to welcome you to our Open House and Community Resource Fair on Friday, August 26, from 1 to 4 p.m.
The intent of this event is to launch our new school year, support our students and families in preparing for a successful school year and build strong relationships between our school community - especially our students - and our school team.
Among the things you can expect at our first family event of the year:
• As part of the Community Resource Fair happening in the gym, students and families will be able to receive a backpack and school supplies, get a hair cut, and access a variety of community resources, such as the Multnomah County Library Gregory Heights library, healthcare, employment opportunities, chiropractor services and much more. Also, students will receive a ticket for a free Kona Ice, which they can pick up outside in the playground area.
• Either before or after visiting the fair, students can also stop by and meet their new teacher! Teachers will be hosting tables under our covered basketball courts and are excited to meet their new students and families! Teachers will be at their tables from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Plan on stopping by and saying hello!

Harrison Park, which transitioned from a K-8 to a middle school this fall, recently held a school-wide vote for a new mascot. According to Principal Leah Dickey, these first few months as a middle school have been pivotal for students as they navigate the new exciting normal and establish an identity as a school and community. Picking a mascot has been an important part of that journey.
Principal Phu Dao is many things to the students and staff of Roseway Heights Middle School: mentor, role model, champion, friend. Ask anyone who has learned from and 皇家华人ed with him and they will tell you that he has dedicated his entire career to advocating for students, families, and educators. And now he’s being honored for that dedication.
Courageous Conversation, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that 皇家华人s with individuals and institutions to address racial disparities through sustained, fruitful dialogue, has named Principal Dao this year’s recipient of the Dr. Charles Hopson Racial Equity Principal Leadership Award.
Bird watching, Lego robotics, gardening, mindful art, coding, running and walking, the high-stakes world of self-governance. It’s all in a morning’s 皇家华人 for the students of Skyline K-8, where every Wednesday begins with participation in one of the school’s many C.A.S. clubs.
We need our community and PAT’s bargaining team to recognize that we are not unwilling to accept their proposal: we are unable. Even the proposal we have made will require at least $45 million in structural budget cuts over the next three years.
