Hello Families:

Welcome to the 4th & final quarter of school! It has been an amazing year so far and I am filled with gratitude; lucky to know and work with your kids. Thank you for sharing them with us. I also want to let you know we're in the news! Our Mason Bee Project at Sonrise garden was featured in this terrific Oregonlive article:

Jennifer Nelson, the article's author, will be speaking THIS THURSDAY, April 16, 6:30 pm - 8 pm, Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve.

I hope to read your thoughts on the next thought exchange and invite you to stop by for coffee on April 24th at 8:30 am.

Thank you for supporting Quatama!

Principal's Message

Quatama STEM TOSA & ¾ teacher Sharon Angal and Alison Heimowitz from Portland Metro STEM presented at the Oregon Zoo on how to create thriving partnerships. The work is a result of support from the Portland Metro STEM Partnership, mentorship , the Oregon Zoo, along with teacher collaboration and K-6 student work at Quatama. The interconnectedness of these three organizations provides the force and power to move ahead into the future where NGSS is standard and students are gaining 21st Century Skills. >> Quatama thought exchange 2014 (PDF)

Each spring instructional staff accomplishes the important task of placing students into classes for the next school year. These placement decisions must be based upon a variety of educational and social factors, current classroom teacher input, principal input, and test data. School staff devotes considerable thought, time, and energy to this task. In the process, we work hard to achieve a “good match” between child and teacher, place each child for optimum success, and create educational effective groupings for the coming year.

We do not accept requests for specific teachers. We will return forms that list a specific teacher. As of this time we do not know teacher grade level placement for the fall. Please address the classroom learning environment as it relates to your child. We invite your input, and encourage you to use the form to provide information regarding placement of your child. Please complete this form and return it to the school office by Thursday, April 30, 2015.
