Be Involved

School involvement is more than just volunteering in the classrooms and special functions. Research suggests it is even more important to have conversations about school to keep yourself engaged and involved. Here are some suggestions for conversations to have with your child and questions you can ask about his/her day.


"Let's see what you have brought home." Talk about and make comments about homework, returned assignments, and daily planners. "Describe a book you enjoyed today." This will help you understand what your child likes to read and can prompt more questions that can encourage greater comprehension. "Tell me what you learned that you would like to know more about." Perhaps the class could not go deeper into the subject and now you have the opportunity to do some fun research together. Other questions outside of "How was school today?" could be, "What was the coolest thing that happened?" "What wasn't so cool?" Pretend you're the teacher. "How would you describe the day?" "What made you laugh?" "What was the most creative thing you did." "How were you caring, principled, or a risk taker today?"


Enjoy the first weekend of the Fall!

This includes the outdoor school grounds while students are arriving or departing, and when school is in session. The reaction people and dogs have with each other is unpredictable. Many children are fearful and/or allergic to animals.

TAG Consideration

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, Pam Perrin, or the school's office.
