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.

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.
