Project Juntos
We are inviting you to take part in a research study sponsored by the University of Oregon’s Center for Equity Promotion. The project is designed to help us learn about middle schools and how to support the success of all middle school students. If you agree to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey. For this portion of the study, we are asking all students, parents, and school staff to answer questions about what this school is like and your experiences at this school. We thank you for your honest and thoughtful answers.

This survey is voluntary, so you can choose to take the survey or not. There is no consequence for not taking the survey. You can expect to take about 15 minutes to fill out the survey. We will ask you to take this survey two more times, about four months from now and then again about one year from now. You can also choose not to answer certain question/s.

This survey is also anonymous. Nobody will know that you are the one who filled out this survey because we do not ask for your name. All your answers are completely private. We will not share your answers with anybody; however the schools will receive the data from the group answers as a whole, not as individuals.

The survey can be accessed online at http://ceqp.uoregon.edu/ , find the Kelly Middle School photo and choose parent. Kelly will receive a $1 for each completed parent survey so it will benefit the school if you take the survey. The survey will be available until April 30.

Office Reminders

Picking Your Student Up Early?
If it’s a pre-planned appointment just send a note with your student. They show the note to their teacher to be excused from class and then they drop the note by the office to check out. They can then be in the office waiting for you! If you forget to send a note or have something unexpected come up please call the office with as much advanced notice as possible so we have time to locate your student and get them up to the office. This helps eliminate unnecessary class interruptions.

ParentVue is available for you to be able to monitor your student’s grades. If you did receive your activation code, please contact the front office. ParentVue is now available for Android or iPhone users just go to the app store and download for free.

Contacting Teachers
Do you have questions about how your student is doing? You can reach teachers through an email or a phone call. Simply go to the Staff Directory page on the Kelly website. There you will find staff email addresses and phone numbers.
