Principal's Message

West Orient Middle School is special because it is well known for its commitment to high academic standards and a positive school culture. Its students have received commendations for academic achievement and community service, as well as for band and choir performances. Students succeed because there is community support, effective teaching, and a parent-school partnership.

What we celebrate:

  • Above average scores on statewide tests.
  • High academic and behavioral standards.
  • Dedicated and collaborative staff that focuses on teaching and learning to improve student growth and achievement.
  • Updated technology.
  • Strong level of parent and community support.
  • Positive and safe school climate & culture.
We are proud of these accomplishments and look forward to building upon them in the upcoming school year.

Our school theme for the 2017-18 school year is “Use the FORCE: Friendships, Opportunities, Respect, Cooperation, Excellence.”  At West Orient, our common goal is to prepare every student for success, NO EXCUSES! We want each and every student to improve, grow, and achieve, but we know we can not accomplish this goal alone. We believe it takes a “FORCE” from all stakeholders—parents, students, staff, and the community— to accomplish our goals with the greatest success.
 

Effective communication is a priority and key to student success! Our weekly newsletter, Tuesday News, contains the most current information including school announcements, upcoming events, important dates, and school celebrations. Tuesday News is emailed to parents on Tuesday afternoons and we upload a copy under the Tuesday News link on our school website. ParentVUE is another valuable communication tool that provides parents and guardians access to information regarding their child’s academic progress, current grades, attendance activity, and class schedules via the internet. Parents and students are encouraged to utilize ParentVUE weekly to track progress. Both Tuesday News and ParentVUE can be found on our school website at, westorient.gresham.k12.or.us.
I am honored to serve as principal of West Orient Middle School. If I can ever be of assistance, please call me at 503-663-3323 or email catanese@gresham.k12.or.us.
In the meantime...May the FORCE be with you!
Elise Catanese
