The first day of school for Portland Public Schools’ students in grades 1-12 is Wednesday, Aug. 30, this year. Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten children start on Tuesday, Sept. 5, the day after Labor Day. But even before the first day of classes, and also into the fall, district schools will be holding events that include open houses, ice cream socials, barbecues and other welcoming events for students and families.
There also is a Back to School Fair for our new multilingual families on Saturday, September 16, from 1-4 p.m. at East End Community School, to help multilingual parents complete the required paperwork that the schools deliver the first week to all students, as well as to familiarize them with local resources.

Here is a list of upcoming events below:
