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 18th.  Look for the results from these tests to come home with the trimester 2 report cards.


A notice went out for our Shrek Jr. play inviting all students in 2nd-8th grade who would like to take part in the play to sign up for the chorus portion of the play (2nd-8th) or audition for a speaking part (3rd-8th only).  Please reference the announcement that was sent out yesterday for more information. 


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.  These hours will need to be recorded and turned in on the Six Flags Read to Succeed Reading Log.  The deadline to turn the forms in is Wednesday, February 20th.


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 read 5 books at their reading level by March 1st. 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, March 1st.


Please take a minute to read the “Character Counts” portion of our newsletter and the tips/ideas on how to reinforce the focus trait of the month at home.  The character trait we are focusing on for the month of January is “Caring.”
