We asked our 4th grade friends at Shaver Elementary to share one favorite thing about the holidays. From our Port family to yours, we hope their drawings make your season a little brighter.
Happy Holidays from the Port of Portland!
For the answer to this question, we went straight to 24 opinionated 4th graders - Mrs. Jody Tucker's class at Shaver Elementary, located in the Argay neighborhood right near PDX and our Port of Portland headquarters.
We heard answers that made us smile, laugh and pulled at our heart strings. Each one reminded us that it's the simple moments that mean the most during the holidays.
We're proud to support the important work Shaver does to build the leaders of tomorrow. From our Port family to yours, we hope these drawings make your season a little brighter.
