Superintendent's Message​​

Paul Hauder

April 2018

Spring has arrived at last—although the sky in Paisley is attempting a retraction of this statement. We have had a touch of snow this afternoon!

The spring activity schedule is ramping up. Track and field is in full swing with 12 events calendared for the season. The state championships are May 17, and we are expecting some of our athletes to compete this year. Our drama classes held their last performances for the community on April 11. A full house enjoyed “The Mousetrap” performed by the high school class and “The 39 Steps” performed by the middle school class. They will perform both plays for Riverdale High School in Portland on April 12. Our high school is participating in a mathematics competition at Central Oregon Community College in Bend on April 12, as well.

Guest speaker Clark Heglar will regale our 4-6 grade class with stories of historic figures from the Oregon Outback on April 25. Mr. Heglar is an expert on Eastern Oregon history and is known for portraying characters and telling stories about historic people and events for audiences in Idaho and Oregon. He will focus on characters the class might hear about on their history-focused field trip in May.

Paisley School District has two major events coming up this month as well. One is an accreditation review, scheduled for April 16 and 17. A team of reviewers from an international accreditation commission (“Advance Ed”) will visit Paisley School and review our school programs, including the Paisley Distance Learning Program. I am certain they will be as impressed as I am of the great work our staff, teachers, students and families accomplish! The other major event beginning this month is our budget process. We will meet over the next several weeks to plan for next year’s budget.

Students receiving Student of the Month recognition for March were: K-3, Skylar Delarm; 4-6, Colton Robinson; 7-12, Slavo Samardzic. They were recognized for the character trait “Proactive”.
