Principal's Welcome

  • Welcome to Sitton!

    We are an amazing, diverse community serving 350 talented students! 

    We offer a well-rounded program grounded in the belief that when students and teachers are engaged in 皇家华人 that is challenging, adventurous, and meaningful, learning and achievement flourish.  A few important elements of our school’s model include:

    • our use of Wit & Wisdom and Benchmark Advanced / Adelante (DLI) in grades K-5 to provide an integrated Reading, Writing, Social Studies and Science approach.

    • our use of standards-based mathematics instruction, iReady Math.

    • our philosophy and support for inclusion of students with identified special needs.

    • our dual language immersion program in Spanish in grades K-5.

    • our partnerships with families and the community including SUN Community After School and IRCO and BPI. Every First Friday we hold a community celebration and farmer's market highlighting student performances, tables from a variety of Community & School Partners as well as our Food Bank and Clothing Closet Resources.

    • our commitment to engaging enrichment activities including Library, Physical Education, Visual Arts, and Music.

    We communicate with families through various means including our monthly  family newsletter in English and Spanish; our Facebook page (please click on the Facebook icon); through text messaging; and more.  Should you have any questions, worries, wonders, or ideas, please do not hesitate to connect via email or phone or joining our monthly Community Coffee at FirstDoor PDX. Our updated calendar can be found on the calendar tab of this website.

    Thank you for sharing your amazing students with us every day!

    Sincerely,

    Becky Berry, Principal

  • West Sylvan Eighth Grader Wields a Mighty Pen

    Even as a small child, Miranda Yesser possessed a keen understanding of the mercenary nature of the publishing industry. 

    According to her one-page, tongue-in-cheek author bio, which hangs on a clothesline in English teacher Dr. Holly Graham’s colorful classroom, “Yesser began writing books at a young age, then trying to sell them to her family for 5 dollars a copy.”

    It might be time to scoop those copies up. Miranda recently received honorable mention in the annual for her short story, “.”

  • The Arts Tax in Action: The HeART of 皇家华人 is Still Beating

    Students who took their first steps into PPS kindergarten classrooms in 2014 – the year 皇家华人’s first-ever arts education tax went into effect – are now thriving sophomores.

    Evan Sampson is one of those sophomores, and he will have a chance to share his story at this year’s HeART of 皇家华人, a showcase spotlighting the artistic accomplishments of some PPS’s most talented students.

    The two-week celebration of creativity will take place from April 16-28 at the 皇家华人 Art Museum. All exhibits and performances are free and open to the public.

  • Lincoln & Grant Constitution Teams to Compete Nationally

    This weekend, the Lincoln and Grant high school constitution teams will compete in the annual We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution National Finals in Washington, D.C. 

    Now in its fifth decade, the event brings together students from all 50 states for a series of mock congressional hearings on everything from the Constitutional Convention of 1787 to the separation of powers and the future of democracy. 

    The Lincoln and Grant constitution teams, under the instruction of Patrick Magee-Jenks and Angela DiPasquale respectively, have long histories of taking home trophies on both the state and national level. 

    Good luck to all!

  • First, the end of this school year will still be June 14 for K-11 students, and it will be May 31 for seniors.
    Second, next year’s bell schedules will change for many students.
    Beginning next school year, we added 15 instructional minutes for elementary and middle school students and provided all middle school students with a seven-period day. Accommodating these changes while supporting 410 minutes per week of teacher planning time and aligning our transportation systems requires us to adopt common start and stop times.
    Third, next year’s school calendars are available.
