TODAY! Thursday, October 25: Rescheduled garden days

Thursday, October 25, 1:30-4:30pm.

This is our “community care day.” Garden Days are important events to keep the landscape healthy, useful, safe and beautiful for everyone to inhabit. Please try to make a couple hours free in your schedule to work alongside your student to show your support and help the gardens. This is not only for Middle School service-learning, it is for ALL SES families. Middle school students will be allowed to participate only if they have a designated, adult supervisor.

If neither of the dates work for you, and you want to help in the garden, please email Steph at: sunnysidesustainability@gmail.com.

Small Toy Donations

PIL 2018-19 Winter sports

Portland Interscholastic League (PIL) youth sports was created for the purpose of growing community-based programs that feed into PPS high schools. PPS middle schoolers can try out for and play on their neighborhood school’s PIL sports teams. 

Note that the PIL program is run by the PIL Athletic Office, but individual teams are run by high school coaches in each cluster. As such, athlete participation is restricted to the neighborhood school associated with an athlete’s home address. Read the boundary map FAQs.

The mission of the Portland Interscholastic League (PIL) is to promote participation and sportsmanship through a competitive interscholastic athletic program. Every athlete is provided with opportunities, positive recognition, and learning experiences that support and maximize the academic goals of our High School. Athletics utilizes experiences that are inherently educational to foster lifelong lessons such as teamwork and self-discipline, while facilitating the physical and emotional development of our student athletes.

Communication for each school’s team is handled by coaches and volunteers, and can vary widely. The SES PTSA does its best to gather information on this page for parents, but please note: nobody on the PTSA or in the SES office will be able to answer questions about the program. If you’ve questions, your best bet is to visit the PIL contacts and websites page and find the most appropriate contact.

CAPOEIRA is back!
 
Beginners Capoeira is back in the neighborhood! See a video of our Sunnyside Capoeria Group in action on the Sunnyside Environmental School Community Facebook Page.
 
This is the scoop:
 
~ classes take place inside one of the spaces at the Sunnyside Methodist Church, right by the school, on the corner of  35th and Yamhill. That allows us to offer classes not only to SES students, but also for other kids in the community.
 
~ we will have two classes. One monthly program for advanced students that have been doing the Capoeira after school program for a few terms now. That class full. We also have a new monthly class, to fulfill the demand: on Wednesdays 4:30-5:30 pm and cap at 12 students. Classes start on Wednesday 9/5. $90 for the first 2 months and $60/month after that. All grades are welcome and I can let you know the average age of the students as they enroll. Professor Pyata Penedo will be back. Pyata is Brazilian and a Capoeira practitioner for several years now. In Portland, he is under Mestre Dilaho, also Brazilian, from CTE Capoeiragem (https://www.facebook.com/CTEOregon/ ). Classes fill up really fast, so if you are interested, please let me know at leticia.rlgeorge@yahoo.com.br
