Springwater Trail High School

Principal's Message

Dear Springwater community,

We hope you like the new look of our Titan Times! Koryna Herreid has been working hard on the redesign.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for conferences. If you missed them, or have additional questions, please reach out to your student's teachers or call the office. We are down to our last 5 weeks of the semester! So, in other words, in 5 weeks student grades for this semester become permanent on their transcripts.

Our students have been busy out in the community this past month! Students visited Portland Community College, Lithtex Printing Solutions, and attended a Town Hall Symposium at Barlow High School on racism. Our World Music Program also performed at the District Office this past Friday.

As we look to the next few weeks, we have some additional exciting opportunities for students: all juniors and seniors will be headed to OHSU on Monday, December 11th to hear about careers in the medical field and meet with an OHSU neurosurgeon. Sophomores will be headed to CAL to tour the school and learn more about their programs. Our Environmental Science class will continue their volunteer work doing habitat restoration alongside Pleasant Valley elementary students.

This time of year can be both exciting and challenging for students and families. The disruption in the school schedule and the holidays can bring forth a wide range of emotions. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns.
