The Lewis Elementary Foundation is a parent-led effort to raise funds to support staffing in our school. We are a non-profit organization that falls under the umbrella of the Portland Public Schools Foundation and All Hands Raised.

In 2018-19 we saw a reduction in staffing due to cuts in funding that went beyond the standard budget allocated by PPS. The main reason for the reduction in funds is that the Lewis community demographics are changing. Our goals with the foundation are to maintain the programs that are valued in our school and to keep class sizes down.
