Art Rutkin Elementary Update

December 15, 2022

Welcome Families!

“Success is a symptom of a strong community.” This quote from Stephen Jon Thompson captures a great deal of what I believe about working with young people and adults. We will have a special community at Art Rutkin Elementary that will be grounded in doing what is best for the children as community members and learners. Words are not enough to express the excitement that I feel for being part of this new school community with each student, family member, community partner and soon-to-be staff members. We will make this an exceptional school community to be part of. I want to personally thank everyone who has attended recent meetings, reached out through email and phone calls, and those who I have been able to connect with around Tigard. The kindness and appreciation for the new school that has been shared with me has been a fun and humbling experience. My expectations will be high for how this new school will serve students in TTSD. I know everyone’s expectations will be equally as high. I am happy to have this opportunity to share current Art Rutkin Elementary School information and updates with you all as we near the winter break.

Enjoy a wonderful winter break and holiday season!

With Gratitude,

Mr. Jamie Kingery
