Hello Quatama families,

As we progress through our fourth quarter-I want to say thank you for all your work supporting our kids through state testing (it is all about effort - doing our best!), getting here daily and on time & building literacy skills at home. Thank you as well for participating in thought exchange, stopping by to talk about your child and attending meetings/coffee with the principal. I love learning more about your family. A reminder about some big events that are coming our way:

District Science Fair, Kindergarten Orientation, 6th Grade Celebration, Coyotes on the Run, Moms and Muffins, Dads and Donuts, Coffee with the Principal...along with lots of other opportunities to show your support and volunteer. Check the calendar! Hope to see you here!

Thank you,

Christy Walters

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.
