Great job to one of our elementary students, Liam, on supporting our community through this act of kindness! #PortageProud

This morning we made a new friend. Liam is a 9 year old Portage resident who accumulated 50 Scentsy Buddy Clips. He wanted to donate them to the police department so that our officers could hand them out to children experiencing a stressful event and could use a little comforting. Liam and his family are kind of new to town and we are grateful to have such a caring and generous young man as part of our community. Thanks Liam!

Our four summer interns in our IT department have been hard at work! Today, they are installing new projector screens at the high school, conducting inventory on iPads, removing protective cases from Chromebooks, and unboxing new cases. They have also been installing new desktop computers in our schools, cleaning devices, and assisting with other IT tasks as needed.

Two of our interns are current PHS students and two are recent PHS grads who attend Valpo University. This is a paid internship that allows them to gain experience working in an IT department. #PortageProud

Last week, our transportation department participated in their annual bus inspection with the Indiana State Police. We are proud to say that our transportation department achieved a 98% pass rate, surpassing the 83% state average!

During the inspection, inspectors from the Indiana State Police evaluate every school bus from the inside out, inspecting the interior cabin, engine, lights, wheels, brakes, undercarriage, and more to ensure each school bus is in working order. Our mechanics are on hand during the inspections to address any minor issues that may arise. Once the buses pass their inspections, they receive their approval stickers for the 2021-2022 school year.

Conducting bus inspections is a detailed process that takes a great deal of preparation and a commitment throughout the year. Our transportation office staff completed all preliminary paperwork and ensured the inspectors had everything they would need during their two-day visit. Many of our bus drivers dedicated time to complete a detailed cleaning of the buses and participated in the inspections. Our team of mechanics complete routine maintenance on all buses throughout the year and were present for the inspections.

This is a testament to the care and dedication of our drivers for taking care of their buses and reporting any issues to our mechanics all year long. Congratulations to our entire transportation team! #PortageProud

Our 4th grade students had a great time at this year's PTS STEM Champs Camp! During the camp, 80 of our 4th grade students participated in science, technology, engineering, and math activities that support creativity, critical thinking, and the power of "yet." Following the camp, the STEM Champs are able to help their school's ITS with Innovative Learning Lab activities during the school year.

Their final activity of the camp is an egg drop! Students were challenged with creating a device that will keep an egg safe when dropped from our boom truck. Watch the video to see which devices kept their eggs safe and which ones created a little bit of a mess! #PortageProud
