Principal Petrick Message

Hello Bobcat Families,

We are excited to host a 2nd Book Fair this year! Our Spring Book Fair runs from April 18th - 22nd. Mrs. Brehm, our media center specialist, is still looking for volunteers to help in the Library during this week. You can contact Mrs. Brehm at

We are also having OMSI at school on Wednesday April 20th! OMSI will be providing various STEM activity tables for students to engage with. If you are interested in helping supervise that fun event, please contact Sarah Foster at 503-844-1735 or

What a fun night we had on Thursday this past week as we enjoyed seeing our band perform at the Hilhi Spring Concert. First time in over two years since we've been able to congregate to watch our band students perform. Way to go Band!

Go Bobcats!

Mr. Petrick

Farmington View Parents for Academic Excellence is seeking Grant Writer

FVPAE is seeking a Grant Writer!

The Math Program has an open board position for grant writing. No experience is necessary. This sub-committee lead should enjoy researching grant opportunities online (we have a good list started already) and comfortable filling out online applications. We have a lot of documentation on our Google Drive and previous grant applications as examples. This is a critical role for FVPAE because it has the potential to bring in thousands of dollars each year. If you are interested in helping, please reach out to for more information.
