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.
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.
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.
