Quil Ceda Tulalip Elementary families and Tulalip community members,
Hello! We have had a great start of the school year with our students and families. A big part of this great start is the support we receive from our partnership with the Tulalip Tribes, our families, and Tulalip community members. Seeing our community members and families during the day at QCT is a treasure for our students. They look forward to seeing you and ask when you will come back! Our kiddos are so proud to show what they are learning and how they are growing their brain to all of our caring adults at QCT.
The bond with our students and their learning is strongest when they see the same caring adults working with them during the school day and seeing them when school is out. Seeing us at their football and basketball games cheering them on and participating in community events like the Back-to-School Backpack distribution and Salmon Ceremony, shows our students from Kindergarten to 5th grade that we are interested in their lives and we are there for them.
One way to strengthen this bond is having community members working on our staff. We currently have multiple openings at QCT, specifically for para-educators/teacher assistants who help our students in their learning Math and Reading, while helping to supervise during lunch and recess. These positions are the backbone of our school as they work closely with all of our students from Kindergarten to 5th grade.
I welcome our families and community members to apply for our open positions and join us in growing all of our students to prepare them for middle school and beyond. We start at $18 an hour for our teacher assistant positions in the Marysville School District. Links to apply to our positions are on the MSD home page (www.msd25.org), towards the bottom of the page is the link “Apply for a Job”.
Interested applicants must have an Associate’s degree or HS diploma/GED with a skills assessment test. If you only have a free day during the school week, we’re always in need for substitute teacher aides, too. Being part of our QCT team is a great way to help our students and invest in their future.
If you need help with applying or have questions, please stop by the school or call us at (360) 965-3100. We’re always looking to partner with our families and Tulalip community members to provide the best for our students and their success!
