Principal's Message

 

Hello Questa Families,

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Winter Break!  


Questa students will be completing the Winter MAP some time between January 7th and ending on January 17th.  Look for the results from these tests to come home with students on Friday, January 24th.  


We had our first Science Night put on by Sandia National Laboratories.  Students and families had a great time taking part in hands-on science activities.  We are hoping to bring this back again next year.  


Our eighth graders will preview the high school on Tuesday, January 21st where they will spend the day at the high school and take part in different activities throughout the day. 


Our Winter Book Fair is happening the week of February 3rd.  Look for fliers coming home with your children later this month.  We will be starting two reading incentive programs for our students so look for this information to come out soon from your child’s teacher.  


Six Flags Read to Succeed Program (K-6th Grade)


Students can earn a free ticket to Six Flags by reading a total of 6 hours.  Information regarding this program was sent home from classroom teachers.  


Stockton Ports Baseball by the Books Reading Program (TK-8th Grade)


Students can earn a voucher for two (2) free tickets to a Stockton Ports game by reading a specific number of books.  All students need to complete their personal reading goal in order to receive their two free tickets. Students will be given a special bookmark from the Ports to record each book as they complete them.  The bottom half of the bookmark must be submitted to the library by the end of the day on Friday, February 28th.  


Questa students will be taking part in Kindness Week the week of January 27th-31st.  There will be themed days for the students as well as activities for them to take part in.  The character trait we are focusing on for the month of January is “Caring.”


Have a nice weekend.


Sincerely, 


Heather M. Sharp
