Ms. Catanese

Greetings,

I’m Elise Catanese, principal of West Orient Middle School, home of the WOLVERINES. As a community of learners, the students and staff at West Orient Middle School strive to practice respect, responsibility, relationships, and results. High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. It is with pride that we hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining the extraordinary record of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of West Orient Middle School students.

School Mission

Wolverines are EPICEngaged Persistent Intentional Career and college ready

School Vision

All students are socially, emotionally, and academically prepared to reach their fullest potential.

School Communication

Communication is key to student success! All school information can be found on our school website, westorient.gresham.k12.or.us. Our weekly newsletter, Wolverine News, contains the most current information including school announcements, upcoming events, important dates, and school celebrations. Wolverine News is emailed to parents weekly and we upload a copy under the Wolverine 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. Both Wolverine News and ParentVUE can be found on our school website. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @WOMSwolverines.

School Theme

Our theme for the 2020-21 school year is Mission PossibleOur mission is to prepare our students for the best comprehensive distance learning experience possible. I can assure you that our teachers have been working relentlessly to prepare lessons and activities and provide outstanding opportunities for online learning. However, we can not accomplish this mission alone. I encourage you and your student to join us in this mission. We ask that you guide and support your child's learning by ensuring that they:

  • Attend all classes, arrive on time, and be prepared and ready for the day's learning.
  • Complete and turn in all assignments on time.
  • Consistently communicate with their teachers.
  • Know that you expect them to succeed in school.

 We are strong and we are EPIC (Engaged, Persistent, Intentional, Career & College Ready) and together we will make this Mission Possible!

 If I can ever be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Go Wolverines!
