Teacher Appreciation
Our teachers truly have been working so hard! We hope that you showed your teachers some love this past week during "Teacher Appreciation Week", but remember you can recognize them anytime of the year!! A simple note of thanks goes a long way.
As instructional aide at an LAUSD elementary school, a friend of mine sent me, and all of her friends in education,
a Teacher Appreciation Poem she wrote.  It sums up how so many of us feel about this past year and I wanted to share it. Click here to read.

Mr. Goldstein and Mr. Stevenson would like to announce that two of Portola's own,
Michael Isayan & Yuran Jung
 are now finalists in
History Day California!!

For Michael's entry, "Communication and the Lack of It: How Newt Gingrich Broke American Politics," and Yuran's entry, "Communication in History: Pigeon Post and How It Was Used in the World Wars".

Both distinguished entries will now be judged at the final competition, National History Day in Washington D.C.

Portola's Highly Gifted Magnet is very proud
of Michael & Yuran, and wish
you both the best of luck!

Open House is Thursday, May 13th!
The link will be provided the day of,
so check your email, our website and/or our social media on Thursday.
Hybrid Update

The teachers and staff are so happy to see some of the kids back on campus!  After a few hiccups, with some tweaks and adjustments, things are going smoothly!

COVID testing was completed this past week on campus.  If you child is in the hybrid program and was absent the day of testing or did not test on campus, you will need to obtain a COVID test from your provider or other source.  The good news is that we only need to test every two weeks now!

If anyone would like to switch from Online to Hybrid or Hybid to Online, please contact Mrs.Kassiri at the magnet office.
Tentative date for 8th grade culmination is 6/9.  Date confirmation & details to follow soon!
