Last Day of School Laser Tag was a huge hit - we had so many students show up, and the kids really had a fantastic time! Thanks to all who came out and made it an event to remember!
Congratulations to all of our culminating 8th graders! Wishing you all the best as you go on to high school!
The Portola music program has a new piano thanks to a donation from the Magnet Parents Association - sadly the old one was worn out beyond repair. Our student is enjoying the new sound!
We recently learned that one of our students, Hana C., received a Gold Key Award in the 2018 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards for her painting, "Everyone Is Equal." She also received a Notable Submission Award for her piece "Ocean Through Filtered Camera" in the Bow Seat Ocean Awareness International Art Contest. Congratulations Hana!
