Marvelous May

Dear Astro Families,


As we head into our final months of the 2018-2019 school year, I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for entrusting us with your children every day. They are so wonderful and brighten our world every day. Our partnership with you is also invaluable. Ladd is a very special place and it takes all of us working together to make it great. I am honored to be a part of our school.


Several reminders are listed below. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call (503) 844-1300. Looking forward to seeing you at our Family Carnival on May 17th!


With warm regards,

Francesca Sinapi

Principal, Ladd Acres Elementary

Student Environment Forms 2019-20

As we begin to plan for the new school year, it is now time to complete your student environment forms. Teachers work tirelessly to create balanced classes and we need your input too. If you would like to have some input on what kind of environment your child does best in for the following school year, the environment forms will be at the office during the week of May 6 through 10. This is the ONLY week they will be available. They will need to be returned to the office no later than May 10.

Volunteer Appreciation Day

Join us on May 22nd from 2:15-3:15 in the school library as we celebrate our volunteers

at Ladd Acres. You are appreciated.
