Dear Sexton Mt. Families:
Eagle Scout candidate, Ethan Bock, has been organizing volunteers to transform the atrium. Students have noticed as the weeds have been removed, the birdhouses cleaned and the bricks spiffed up. They've watched as plants have been added and the overall appearance transformed. When our former students come back to serve our school it is always very special. Many of our current students are finding ways to help our school and it’s exciting to see how helping others can change a child’s outlook.
We have several changes that will take place over the summer.
Construction-Parts of our roof will be replaced this summer. Expect extra traffic and a construction staging area near the cafeteria.
Staff Changes- Holly Cohn and Mary Bentley will be retiring at the end of the school year. Holly has served children at Sexton Mt. for the past 6 years. Before coming to our school, she was at Hiteon Elementary. Mary has served children in our SRC and at the SRC at Cedar Park Beaverton for a total of 10 years. Kelsey Baldwin will be taking a leave of absence next year. Darlene Cadiente will be returning to her home state of Hawaii at the end of the school year. Hers was one of several positions that were funded for just this year. This year Darlene worked with 3rd-5th graders to improve literacy and mathematics skills. Katherine Stanley supported 3rd-5th grade students in the area of mathematics. Kerri Truesdell served students for part of the year in our SRC classroom.
Sexton Mountain’s new principal, Mrs. Reese, will notify families about new staff coming to the Sexton Mountain team later this summer .
Summer Office Hours-The office will be closed from June 26 to August 6. Please encourage new neighbors to register online. Please visit our school's website for information about office hours, school supply lists and more.

All medication not picked up from the Health Room/office by June 25 will be disposed of.
Volunteer Background Checks
Volunteers will be needed for field trips, Field Day and more. Only approved volunteers are able to assist with these special events. Make sure that you complete you Volunteer Background Check far in advance of the actual event. You can do that by visiting:
MOVING? We know that our fifth graders will be off to new schools next year. If your current kindergarten through fourth grade student won’t be here, we’d love to have that information now. If your child will not be attending Sexton Mt. in the fall because you are moving or have moved, please let us know. Email Diane_Holste@beaverton.k12.or.us with the information. Please also let your child’s teacher know.
