Welcome To Umatilla Middle School, a Title 1 School.
It is the mission of Umatilla Middle School that all
students will grow and learn in a positive
atmosphere where faculty, staff, parents,
and students together are enthusiastic about the
teaching and learning process utilizing data driven
instruction and research-based materials and programs.
1. Be Positive
Approach the big test as you'd approach a giant jigsaw puzzle. It might be tough, but you can do it! A positive attitude goes a long way toward success.
2. Plan Ahead
Know what the test is going to cover. Can you use your calculator? Do I know how to log on?
3. The Night Before the Test
Cramming doesn't work. Do a quick review if needed but don’t stay up late! Your brain and body need sleep to function well, so get to bed early.
4. The Morning of the Test
Don't skip breakfast the morning of the test you brain works better when it is fueled. Get to school early and do a quick review, so your brain is turned on and tuned up.
5. Time for the Test
Make sure you have everything you'll need. Read the instructions! Make sure you are marking answers correctly and don’t work ahead!
6. Manage Your Time
Scan through the test quickly before starting. Answering the easy questions first then go back and complete the hard ones.
7. Having Problems
Reread the question to make sure you understand it, and then try to solve it. If you're still stuck, circle it and move on. You can come back to it later.
9. Write Clearly
Make sure bubbles are clear.
10. When Done
Don’t rush! When finished go back and check your answers. Check for careless mistakes such as skipped answers. Go back and look at those hard questions!
Set your preferences to determine how often you receive calls from the district or schools
Getting information about what’s happening at your student’s school is important. But how you get that information is up to you!
The SchoolMessenger system we use to send automated phone messages has been integrated with the Skyward Student Management platform through the Skylert module. Through Skylert, parents and guardians can set their preferences for general communication from Lake County Schools.
If you have a Skyward Family Access account, and do not want to receive general calls from your school or the district, you can opt once you’re logged in. Don’t have an account? Click here to download an enrollment form. The Skyward Family Access account gives you access to your student’s grades as they are posted, along with attendance records, test scores, homework assignments and important district documents, such as the student code of conduct.
If you don’t want a Skyward Family Access account and you simply want to opt out of general calls, simply turn in a School Messenger Contact form at your child’s school.
