May Celebrations

Hello Corvallis Family,

We had so much to celebrate last week. It was such a fun week.


PTA elected new leadership!


Family Math Night- We had awesome attendance and learned a few games.


We celebrated some of our hard working students.

Angelo in fifth grade won a contest for his art.

The whole school surprised me with some wonderful cards and gifts for principal's day.

Incidentally, it was also Star Wars day.


Cinco de Mayo

Children's Day in Japan.

Principal Chat

Thank you to all of the parents who came to the Principal Chat this morning. Also thanks to Ms. Ana, Ms. Mandy and Ms. Paulovits for translating. Ms. Vicki and Ms. Sarah helped to make sure there was food and coffee, a vital part of the meeting.

State testing

State testing begins this week for grades 3-5. Please see the Parent Support & Resources section below. We do not believe that a test score describes our students. These assessments are an indicator of what our students know and where we should focus our teaching.

Chat with the principal is a week from today. Come to the Computer Room on Monday, May 8th from 8:45 to 9:45 and talk about volunteer opportunities.

Have a wonderful week!

Celebrating Teachers and Staff this week

It's teacher and staff appreciation week this week. The PTA is spoiling us with tons of goodies! It would mean a great deal to the teachers and staff if they received a thank you note from your student. Those words of appreciation mean so much.

Please reach out to your child's teacher to discuss your concerns. We want to help you and your child work through the anxiety and enjoy school.
