Quartz Hill Elementary
Your school needs you to complete this online survey to learn more about your opinions about it. This survey is an opportunity to communicate your perceptions about your child's school.
Your participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.
This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data. You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you. Simply skip any such questions.
Parents/Guardians, Education Code (EC) 48980 et seq. requires school districts to notify parents and guardians of their rights and responsibilities at the beginning of the academic year. Your signature on the Student Information - Annual Updates form sent home with your student is your acknowledgement that you've been informed of your rights. Please return the Annual Updates form to your child's school promptly.
Campus Climate Assistants
While on the playground, students have the opportunity to engage in academic activities with our Campus Climate Assistants. Campus Climate Assistants work with our school counselor to develop structured activities for our students to participate in during recess and lunch. In the picture above, students had to be strategic while working with their team to use rubber bands to stack cups.

Students in Mrs. Tidwell's fourth grade class worked to develop a city. Each team had to engineer a structure that withstand a major earthquake. Students then presented their structures to the class and reviewed the specialized structures in place that would allow the structure to remain standing through tumultous shaking.
