Great Things are Happening--October 11, 2016


Sexton Mt. Families:


Today I am filled with gratitude. I am thankful for caring volunteers who show up and notice when help is needed. I am thankful for those who speak up and deal directly when there is a concern or celebration. I am thankful for those who come together to support when someone is hurting. I am thankful for those who are patient and understand the importance of a positive learning environment. I am thankful for those who offer a hand and expertise when small things are broken. I am thankful for positive, proactive conversations. I am thankful for those who repurpose rain boots, play clothes, and books. I am thankful for the dad who noticed when a child was where he wasn't supposed to be and helped out. I am thankful for the mom who flipped over the bike and fixed the chain. We have a great community.

Thanks for sharing your children with us.

A few things..

The scary clown stories are being talked about at school.  Please talk to kids about what to do with information they are worried about.

Currently about 50 children have not returned the sheet so don't have permission to have pictures included in the class picture. Class pictures will only include the pictures of children who have given permission to have info shared on the Yellow Parent Permission FERPA sheet.

Toy weapons are NEVER allowed at school.

Talented and Gifted services in Beaverton School District

Every year students are considered for Talented and Gifted services in Beaverton School District.  These services are provided by your child's classroom teacher(s).  If you think your child might qualify, you may wish to complete the Parent Information Form that is available in our school’s office.  Completing this form gives our school TAG committee more information about your child, but it is not required.  All qualified students will be considered regardless of its completion.

Oregon law and District policy define gifted students as those who score at or above the 97th percentile on a standardized, nationally normed test of mental ability and/or academic achievement.  Behavioral, learning, and/or performance information is also considered before a student is identified for TAG services.


The Parent Information Form must be completed and returned to our school’s TAG facilitator, Katrina Simkins-Moore a.k.a. Ms. S'Moore, or the school’s office.
