Congratulations to our Crystal Apple Winners

The Umatilla School District congratulates our two Crystal Apple winners for 2017. These "Excellence in Education" awards are given each year to educators who are going the extra mile in our schools to improve learning for students. Our winners, who were recognized at a reception and ceremony on May 15, are:

Valerie May -- a 3rd Grade Teacher at McNary Heights Elementary School who has worked in the district for 12 years. She is a highly dedicated educator who goes the extra mile to prepare her students. Valerie diligently keeps updated on Common Core information so her students will be successful in 4th grade. A gifted math teacher, her love of the subject evolved into the STEM Academy Math Club now offered after school. Enthusiastic and always a step ahead, “Valerie is one of those talented, treasured teachers we need to recognize for her endless dedication to students and education.”

Tina Ridings -- a Classroom Assistant and STEM Academy Site Coordinator for the district, where she has worked for five years. Tina cares deeply about students and loves seeing the smiles when the magic “I got it” is evident in their eyes. She is a great team player and always finds the best in every single student. She teaches students to be responsible when they work as interns during the after-school STEM Academy and is an active volunteer in the district and community. She is described as “an amazing woman with a heart of gold!”

Welcome to Umatilla School District

Welcome to the Umatilla School District website. Our purpose is to provide our students with a top quality public education so that they may become the successful, contributing citizens of the future.

Our school district consists of 1360 students, 73 teachers, 64 classified, 6 administrators, 7 supervisory, and 3 confidential staff members. We have three schools: an elementary, a middle and a high school. Our location is at the confluence of the Umatilla and Columbia Rivers, and we are rich in history of Lewis and Clark as well as the Tribes of the Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Cayuse Indians.

Umatilla is a natural transportation hub, as we are located near the river, the railroad, and two interstate highways. While our economic base has primarily been agricultural in the past, we are seeing more diversity these days due, in part, to our proximity to transportation.

You are welcome to peruse our web site. Our school pages contain our curriculum for grades K-12 as well as lists of activities and general school news.

We are proud of our district: our staff is working hard, our students are learning and our community gives us wonderful support.  So please feel welcome to explore our web site and learn more about Umatilla School District.
