SUN Community School – Schools Uniting Neighborhoods 


Gordon Russell's SUN Community School is a program of Metropolitan Family Services. MFS is dedicated to building stronger communities by providing services, connecting people with resources, and offering volunteer opportunities throughout the Portland area. SUN school based services include: academic enrichment, recreation, and social services for students, parents and neighborhood residents. SUN offers 3 sessions of extended day activities for students during the school year that begin at 3:35 and conclude at 5:30 PM Monday thru Thursday. In addition, there is a youth summer program in July. Adult classes, as well as SUN sponsored events, will also be offered during the school year.
