Finish Strong-June 14, 2016


Dear Sexton Mt. Families:                                                                                                                                        

Saturday morning families cheered wildly for children, parents and community members as they crossed the finish line of the Run with the Eagles 5K.  Several students proudly shared that this was their first official race.  They did their best and now have an official time to beat for future races.  I didn’t get to stick around for the children’s Fun Run.  Saturday morning was a special day for the Brower family as our youngest, with family cheering wildly, crossed the finish line of high school as he received his diploma during his official high school graduation ceremony.  His principal reminded students that the “commencement” ceremony did not mark the end of the journey but the start of something new. 

As we work to finish the school year strong, I want to thank you for partnering with us to support students during the 2015-2016 school year.  As our students shared last Friday, “I want to thank you for your generosity, the love and the honesty that you gave” to ensure that our children had a very special school year.  Though Natalie Merchant might not have known that her words would perfectly describe our amazing school community, she nailed it in Kind and Generous. 

Thank you for sharing your children with us!

With Gratitude,

Teresa Clemens-Brower
Principal

Library, Literacy, Field Day and FUN--June 7, 2016


Dear Sexton Mt. Families:                                                                                                                                     

Last week was a busy!  Our second graders walked to the Murray-Scholls library and many now have their very own library card!  Hundreds of kids and families showed up for Family Literacy Night at Beaverton City Library.  Students were active, cooperative and happy during Field Day events.  Active, curious learners abound at Sexton Mt. School.  Next week we will start each day with a community building activity in front of the school so please use extreme caution in our parking lot after 8:30am.  We will have theme days throughout the week too for those who’d like to participate. Thanks for partnering with us as we finish the school year strong.

Thank you for sharing your children with us!

With Gratitude,

Teresa Clemens-Brower
Principal
