Live Homework Help Daily from 2 PM to 10 PM

Multnomah County Library offers live online homework help from 2 - 10 PM daily in all subject areas! They just need a library card which I believe they can even sign up online now for.

Family and Community Resources

During these very different times, we understand that families may need or want to access community resources. Below is a list of community resources and agencies that support housing/rental assistance, nutritional needs, and other basic everyday living needs. Resources will also be posted on our main website.


Community Resources


  1. Food/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits the application process available here. There is a language option and support for families who would like a live person. The application can be found here.
  2. Oregon Food Bank Food Finder (in the upper right corner there is a language option).
  3. 211 is a great resource! They have a database that contains just about every county resource available to families. Here families will find a one-stop-shop for housing, food, and childcare resources.
  4. PPS Nutrition Hubs- Beaumont is a designated nutrition hub.
  5. Hacienda is a resource that provides culturally specific resources and outreach to families.



Health Center


This fall, while schools are engaged in Comprehensive Distance Learning, the PPS Roosevelt Student Health Center will be open starting Monday, September 14th for phone, video, and in-person visits. Monday-Thursday 8:45 am-4:45 pm and Friday for phone and video appointments only. Call 503-988-3909 to make an appointment.


Any Multnomah County K-12 youth can visit the center and there are no out of pocket costs. We also can connect students and their families with community resources for food or help with medical insurance.


Student Health Centers at David Douglas & Parkrose high schools are also open. For more information visit https://multco.us/health/student-health-centers. Stay connected via Facebook and Instagram.

Textbook Distribution: Wednesday 3 PM to 5 PM

This Wednesday from 3 PM to 5 PM, you will have the opportunity to collect your student's textbooks, art supplies, and or graph paper for math classes. Currently, we have books for grade 6 and grade 8. A big shout out to the library staff, support staff, and PTA members that have supported these efforts.

Introducing Ms. Wortham

My full name is Cecile Lynnette Wortham but most folks call me "Lynnette". Though born and raised here, I maintain close ties to ethnic roots in Louisiana and love all things Creole--zydeco music and dancing, the dialect and cuisine--especially my favorite dish, crawfish etouffee. Laissez Bon Temps Rouler!

That said, Portland is home and I can't imagine living outside of the great, Pacific Northwest. There's absolutely nothing that compares to our fresh air and water, pristine Cascade and Olympic Mountain Ranges, and the awesome Willamette River Valley.


Some of my favorite pastimes include playing piano, guitar, taking long, leisurely drives along scenic highways in Oregon and Washington, and of course, writing. I've been working on my great American novel, 'Bon Sauvage,' for years now!😂 I also enjoy simply hanging out with friends, family, and my perky, little toy poodle--Cinnamon.


After attending both Catholic and public schools in town, I completed undergraduate studies in English, Secondary Education, and African/African-American Studies at PSU. I then attended Lewis and Clark--my mom's alma mater, and the University of Phoenix for graduate work in Elementary Education.


My career with PPS began some thirty-nine years ago as a substitute but I've enjoyed teaching full time at the middle school level since the mid-1980s. Beaumont is my neighborhood school and it's been my absolute pleasure working with our incredible Bobcats since the 2000-2001 school year! Time flies when you're having fun!
