School News & Announcements
A Message from the Principal
Dear Capitol Hill Parents and Friends,
Summer is here and I wish you all a restful, sunny and safe summer break. The best thing you can do to support your child’s continuous learning throughout the summer is to make sure they read, read, read! Take advantage of our beautiful Oregon summers and promote your child’s imaginative, physical play outdoors. Being outside and staying active is critical for both good mental and physical health.
Our 4th grade teachers, Marcy Matsuo and Terry Clifford, retired this spring. Our staff celebrated their long term careers in June and we wish them a wonderful retirement. Jera Boettcher, para-educator, will be moving to Glencoe Elementary School. Jennifer Buchanan, 1st grade teacher, was selected as a Teacher On Special Assignment (TOSA) for Literacy by the PPS Curriculum Department where she will be training other teachers in literacy instruction. And, Cindy Dyer, educational assistant in Kindergarten, will be moving on to a new assignment. I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication and wish them all good fortune as they move onto other jobs and locations.
