It is always fun to
recognize our students for the great things they do. Every week we
randomly draw five names who have received a “Caught Ya” card
from an appreciative staff member. At the end of the month we
recognize three students, selected by staff members, at an assembly
attended by the entire student body. Again this month, we honored
three more students who showed “Gumption” during the month of
April. Those students are: Faith, Daley, and Makaylah.
Our student led
conferences are coming up next week. Conferences are scheduled for
Wednesday, April 19 and Thursday, April 20. This is an opportunity
for your student to share with you how they have progressed through
the year, what they have learned, and what their future plans might
be. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our next Dorm Dinner is scheduled for Friday, April 21 at the Pioneer
Saloon. If you have not yet had the opportunity to attend one of
these dinners I hope you can do so. This is the next to last dinner
this year. Our international students work hard to make sure
everyone has a positive experience. Thanks again to Jon and Angela
for supporting this effort. Proceeds from the evening help with dorm
expenses during the year.
Our track season is
underway. Athletes and coaches are working hard with the ultimate
goal of participating in the district track meet on May 13 at Summit
High School in Bend and the state track meet at U of O May 18 and 19.
The seismic upgrade
project of our main building is underway. During the months of April
and May we will be taking things off walls, boxing up items for
storage, and getting the building ready for the main construction
that will begin on June 5. We will be moving some classrooms to the
elementary wing the last week of school and relocating the front
office staff to another part of the campus.
includes the reinforcement of walls, the strengthening of building
corners, and the upgrade of our internet lines. The interior of the
building will be painted. The building will be closed for the summer
except for the weekend of the Centennial and Mosquito Festival. The
plan is to have building ready for occupancy when school resumes in
scheduled for June 3. The seniors have chosen to have ceremony at
the front of the main building. We hope to see you there.
