Superintendent's Message​​

 November 2016 Newsletter

Our Fall sports program came to an end this month. Both our boys cross country team and girls volleyball teams had positive seasons, not necessarily in the win/loss column but certainly in the attitude and sportsmanship categories. I want to thank our coaches- Shelly Leehmann, Kim Nichols, and Mark Douglas for their hard work and dedication to our athletes.

Our basketball teams have started practicing for the upcoming season. Both teams look strong and should be very competitive. The season officially starts with a tournament in Prospect the weekend of December 2. We look forward to seeing you at our home games. The concession stand will be up and running with some exciting new changes to the menu.

We recognized three students this past Thursday as our Students of the Month for October. Those students are Dannah Hiatt, Tyson Hedricks, and Adam Breck. They were recognized for Honesty. The word of the month for November is KINDNESS.

Lots of things are happening with our Distance Learning Program as well. In November some DLP students visited the Guide Dogs for the Blind facility in Boring, Oregon. Last month 20 students served at the Oregon Food Bank. They handled 7,533 pounds of food, prepared 6,277 meals, and averaged 100 meals packaged per volunteer. They joined forces with another middle school in the Portland area.

Finally, I want to remind you of our next dorm dinner sponsored by the Pioneer Saloon. Our first dinner was a huge success. The next dinner is scheduled for Wednesday, November 30. Our dorm students being recognized are Radar, from Thailand and Kate, from Vietnam.

Please contact me or the main office with any questions or concerns you might have. I look forward to seeing you at conferences.
