All students are socially, emotionally, and academically prepared to reach their fullest potential.
Communication is key to student success! All school information can be found on our school website, westorient.gresham.k12.or.us. Our weekly newsletters, Wolverine News, are created on the Smore website and contain the most current information including school announcements, upcoming events, important dates, and school celebrations. Wolverine News is emailed to parents weekly via School Messenger and uploaded to 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.

Our theme for the 2021-22 school year is Dream It, Believe It, Achieve It. At West Orient we feel that if you have a dream and believe in yourself, that you are more likely to achieve whatever it is you set your mind to. It's called a positive mindset. Research shows that by practicing a positive mindset every day you're better able to handle stress and have better mental and physical well-being. This year our goal is to have a positive mindset and encourage everyone to behave in a more positive and optimistic way!
If I can ever be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
