Principal's Message

Quatama Families, 

Thank you for a successful first quarter & 2014! Things to note: We have made an adjustment to our parent pick up (car); students will now exit at the 2nd set of double doors (gym); my hope is this will be a safer & quicker routine. Additionally, we should soon have a new computer based volunteer sign in system in the front office. I also want to thank community members who participated in Thought Exchange-your thoughts matter! 

Please check out the pdf below to see the big picture results of our Quatama conversation. I encourage you to continue to participate as new conversations begin!

Have a wonderful break-we look forward to serving you in 2015! 

Best, 

Christy Walters

Talented and Gifted (TAG) Students

Parents are welcome to refer their child for services designed for students identified as talented and gifted.  Students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a nationally standardized test of overall reading or math or on a mental abilities test, and have other confirming evidence that they learn at a rapid rate and advanced level, are identified as TAG students.  With parent input, individual plans are made to adjust the rate and level of the student’s instruction to meet their specific needs. 

If you think your child may qualify for TAG services, and want information about the referral and identification process, please call Christy Walters or Shannon Jones

Quatama is excited to be pursuing STEM to STEAM education for our students and families.  As part of the Portland Metro STEM Partnership, we are developing, planning, and implementing learning that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  The Right Brain Initiative and the staff development it provides to teachers is helping us use the arts as a natural ribbon to tie together other subjects in meaningful, real world experiences.   We invite families to join the adventure in any way you can.  We have need for help in the garden, after school technology and interest clubs, connections to field trips to STEM or STEAM businesses.  Interested?  Give us a call or let your child’s teacher know of your interest.
