Principal's Update

Scappoose Students, Families, and Staff,

Hello Scappoose Community,

Congratulations to all of the Class of 2023! This class has been an amazing group of young adults. Thank you, parents and guardians, for supporting your students in their journey toward graduation. I want to thank the SHS counseling department for all their work guiding our seniors' academic careers at SHS. Another thank you and recognition to our leadership students and Kristen Hagen for planning and facilitating graduation as well as our grounds crew for all their work preparing the grounds for the public. Please see below for essential schedule announcements, leadership activities, and athletics.

What we do:

Event planning, resourcing, and fundraising for the Senior Luncheon, Baccalaureate, and Graduation party.

Senior Luncheon: After the seniors do their parade-style walk through the elementary schools, they come back to the high school to refuel with some lunch and then start rehearsal for the graduation ceremony. Lunch is provided by the Safe & Sober parent organization.

Baccalaureate: This is an optional event based on the ceremony of blessing that has often preceded graduations. Ours is a non-denominational and inspirational celebration and will include a guest speaker, the senior slideshow, and more.

All-night graduation party: This is meant to be a safe place for graduating seniors to celebrate together. They will be bussed to a secret (fun!) location in the evening after the graduation ceremony. They will be bussed back in the morning. The evening is filled with food, games, prizes, activities, chilling, and loads of fun!
