Portland Gateview Elementary

PGE Student Mentoring


Administration & Student Relationships

The school administration believes that student advocacy begins when students walk in the school doors.  Each morning, the principal and assistant principal are in the front and back of the school greeting students. This provides students an opportunity to form relationships with administrators.  As students filter to their classrooms each morning, adults are stationed in the hallways not only to direct students, but also to create meaningful bonds.


Student & Student Relationships

Our mentoring program at PGE is helping to create stronger student to student relationships.  Upper grade classrooms are connected to lower grade classrooms.  Specific times have been opened for these classrooms to get together monthly and build student relationships.
