in the summer, please link to SAMPLE school supply lists. These are
suggested supplies but are
required. These lists are not intended to be all-inclusive. Your
classroom teacher may have additional or different requests.

From time to time, Portage Public Schools will invite local media (newspaper
and television) into our schools to cover events and activities. This
is done in an effort to make the public aware of the outstanding learning
and positive activities that occur in our schools. Please know PPS is
very sensitive to pupil privacy and monitors situation in which any student
image is used in a publication. In addition, stidents' images will not
be identified on any of the school district websites.
