The Sabin PTA will deeply miss Principal Williams as she embarks on her next admirable career adventure! Ms. Williams has worked tirelessly for Sabin students and staff over the past five years, and courageously helped shepherd our school community through the unforeseen challenges of the pandemic. She has always generously shared her time, enthusiasm, positivity and wisdom with parents, students and staff alike, with a steady hand and reassuring smile. We know she will do great things for Portland students in her role at MESD! 


We are very excited to work with Ms. Lathan as the Interim Principal, during what is sure to be a wonderful year as we return to the school building with our friends! Ms. Lathan has done an incredible job building up our students’ confidence, critical thinking skills and sense of agency through student leadership, and we know she’ll do awesome things as she continues to lead Sabin students and staff. (Plus she’s a Sabin alum herself!)


PPS will soon begin the permanent principal hiring process using feedback from a Community Feedback Survey (link here). Additionally, please join a session with staff and community to discuss the hiring process on Tuesday, July 20th at 7pm (link below).

2020-21 PTA Newsletter Archives:


Across the U.S., PTA comprises millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children, and the promotion of parent involvement in schools. Sabin School PTA prides itself on being a powerful voice for children; a relevant resource for families, communities, and teachers; and a strong advocate for public education. Membership in PTA is open to anyone. 

When parents and guardians are involved in their child’s education at home, they do better in school. When parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better!

We hope you can be involved this year... whether it’s simply signing up for a few programs, contributing an hour of your time at a school event, supporting fundraisers, or working regularly in your child’s classroom, there are myriad opportunities to be involved. Click here for a few ideas.
