Message from the Principal

Hello Wildcat Families-


I hope your family is healthy and you're finding some joy in these strange times.


In reviewing this month's family feedback, we heard you telling us that you'd like a clearer system for finding missing work in Canvas. Our teachers have been reorganizing their pages and adding headers for days of the week to help with that. Please continue to contact them during office hours if you have any questions.


There were also questions raised about how we would "grade" assignments and participation in distance learning. Next Wednesday is a grading day (no school) and teachers will be completing an academic feedback form for each student. They will use the work submitted to give you an overview of your student's progress so far. The first formal report card is in February. We are still discussing what we need to change and what we will use as assessments. We will provide you more information as we land on answers.


As I have referenced before, we will be having a series of parent listening sessions in the next several weeks. Next week we have our Grupo de Padres Latinos meeting on Tuesday, November 17th from 5:15-6pm. On Thursday the 19th we'll host a session for Families of Black and Multi-Racial students from 5:15-6pm. These meetings will include some info about our school goals and then discussion about how we can work together to reach them. PLEASE CONTACT TAMMIE MANDUJANO at 503.431.4403 IN OUR FRONT OFFICE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND EITHER SESSION. She can provide you more info and a link to the Zoom meetings. There will also be PSO and Families of Students with Disabilities sessions offered in early December.


Thank you for all of your continued support and feedback. We are working through complex problems and we can sometimes only see things from our perspective. Your voice and input are very important in our work to serve your kids.


Take care and have a great weekend.


Mr. Blasquez/ Mr. B, Principal

Mensaje del director

Hola familias Wildcat-

Espero que su familia esté sana y que encuentre algo de alegría en estos tiempos extraños.

Al revisar los comentarios de las familias de este mes, nos expresó que les gustaría un sistema más claro para encontrar trabajos no entregados en Canvas. Nuestros maestros han estado reorganizando sus páginas y agregando encabezados para los días de la semana para ayudar con esto. Continúe comunicándose con ellos durante sus horarios de oficina si tiene alguna pregunta.

También surgieron preguntas sobre cómo se "calificarán" las tareas y la participación en el aprendizaje a distancia. El próximo Miércoles es un día de calificaciones (no hay clases) y los maestros completarán un formulario de comentarios académicos para cada estudiante. Utilizarán el trabajo entregado para brindarle una descripción general del progreso de su estudiante hasta el momento. La primera cartilla de calificaciones será en Febrero. Todavía estamos discutiendo qué necesitamos cambiar y qué usaremos como evaluaciones. Le proporcionaremos más información a medida que lleguemos a las respuestas.

Como he mencionado antes, tendremos una serie de sesiones de escucha para padres en las próximas semanas. La próxima semana tendremos nuestra reunión del Grupo de Padres Latinos el Martes 17 de Noviembre de 5:15-6pm. El Jueves 19 organizaremos una sesión para familias de estudiantes negros y multirraciales de 5:15 a 6pm.
Estas reuniones incluirán información sobre nuestras metas escolares y luego una discusión sobre cómo podemos trabajar juntos para alcanzarlas. POR FAVOR, CONTACTE A TAMMIE MANDUJANO EN NUESTRA OFICINA al 503-431-4403 SI LE GUSTARÍA ASISTIR A CUALQUIER SESIÓN. Ella puede proporcionarle más información y un enlace a las reuniones de Zoom. También habrá sesiones del PSO y familias de estudiantes con discapacidades que se ofrecerán a principios de Diciembre.

Gracias por todo su continuo apoyo y comentarios. Estamos trabajando en problemas complejos y, a veces, solo podemos ver las cosas desde nuestra perspectiva. Su voz y su opinión son muy importantes en nuestro trabajo para servir a sus hijos.

Cuídate y que pases un gran fin de semana.

Sr. Blasquez / Sr. B, Director

Social Emotional Learning This Week

Each week our District sends out Social Emotional Learning through our teachers for our students. This section of our newsletter describes what the past week has been about and shares with you what next week will look like:


Self-management is managing your thoughts and actions to help you make positive choices, accomplish your goals, and meet expectations.


A good question to ask everyone at home would be:
