Dear Portledge School community,

As the President of the Portledge School Parents Association, I am thrilled to be a part of such a warm community. 

At Portledge School, we believe in the power of collaboration and partnership between parents, teachers, and students. As the Parents Association, we are committed to supporting the school's mission and enhancing the educational experience for our children. We strive to foster a sense of belonging, provide resources and opportunities for involvement, and create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all families.

Throughout the year, we organize various events and initiatives to strengthen the bond between school and home. We encourage you to participate and make the most of your Portledge experience actively. Portledge has many opportunities throughout the school year for families and faculty to come together, including; Founders Day, Parents Association Meetings, Parent DEI Coffees & Speakers, 100 Days ‘til Graduation Celebrations, the Portledge Gala, Faculty & Staff Appreciation Breakfasts, and more!

We are fortunate to have such a passionate and talented group of educators guiding our children's educational journey. Let us embrace the opportunities for growth, learning, and discovery that lie ahead. Together, we can create a supportive and nurturing environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

I look forward to meeting and collaborating with all of you. Please remember that the Parents Association is here to support you and your family throughout the year. Let us join hands and make this academic year a memorable one for our children.

Homecoming & Founders' Day

Homecoming & Founders Day is a long-standing tradition at Portledge. We hope you will join us for a day of rides, music, exciting sports games, activities, the Panther Den, and delicious food. There are many opportunities to volunteer to help make this a successful event. It is also a great way for new and returning community members to come together to have fun and support Portledge. We hope to see you there on Saturday, September 30th.
