Bem-Vindo! Welcome to our new Portuguese speaking students and families! Talbot school is very happy to be receiving many new students who have recently arrived to Portland from Angola and the DRC. We registered 16 new students last week and expect many more in the days ahead. Our staff has embraced our usual “It takes a village” approach to make sure our newest arrivals feel welcome and at ease and part of our school community.
Greetings from Talbot Community School and Happy Spring! Thank you for attending your child’s conference recently. It was heartwarming to see so many smiles on parent/caregiver’s faces as students proudly shared what they have been learning.
I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful February Vacation. It was nice to have a mix of sunny days and periods of snow. It is hard to believe that the first day of spring is only 22 days away!
This week we honor the life of Tyre Nichols, a young 29 year old who was a beloved father, son, avid skateboarder and creative photographer. It is heartbreaking to see, hear and read about the tragic loss of another black person due to police brutality. Black people deserve to feel safe in this country and world, and in our schools.
Welcome to December! How quickly the school year is flying by. Before we know it, 2023 will be here!
