Update on QES Alder Street

The status of our Alder Street campus is that we are currently two weeks behind schedule to finish and move in by our first day of school on August 21st. The reasons for this include a high standard of safety for school campuses, as well as strict oversight from the Department of State Architecture. The standards are much higher in buildings where children will be present, in order to protect children, our most valued resource. Our district, architects, and planners are working hard to navigate the many requirements needed to get QES ready in time for our 3rd-6th students to move in fall.


We are still planning to move, but have decided to wait until August to pack. We will continuously re-evaluate our construction status between now and August to determine whether we will start the 2019-2020 school year in our existing configuration or if we will move our 3rd-6th graders. We will keep you updated via newsletters and Aeries communication of our status.


Please call or email Principal Hollister if you have questions. We’d be happy to set up a meeting with groups or individuals to discuss.

Deadline to order yearbooks has passed!!! You may still order, but shipping will not be free.

Please note: We have changed yearbook vendors and you can order directly online. If you order online, you can create personal pages for your own student! Please see flyer below for login details.


We have a few yearbooks still for sale in the office. You may bring $20 to Mrs. Pini until we have sold out.

It's Survey Time!!!

Finally, spring has arrived. With it comes a time for reflection and renewal. We need your input to review what has worked and not worked for the past year so that we can continuously improve upon the education we deliver to our children. Please take some time to fill out our survey to let us hear from you.


The first survey is the Site Council QES Parent Survey, which guides our Site Council as to how to allocate resources at our site and revise our Single Plan for Student Achievement.

Chronic Absenteeism -Missing 2 days per month can add up!

QES, along with PUSD, wish for our students to be active and engaged learners. In order to promote the highest achievement possible for our students, we are addressing Chronic Absenteeism- students who are absent from school 10% or more days for any reason. Students who miss 10% of total school days are missing 18 days per year!


According to Edsource:


Chronic absenteeism can have adverse consequences for a child as early as kindergarten. Students with high rates of absenteeism are less likely to be able to read by the end of the 3rd grade, are more likely to drop out in high school and show less persistence in college.
