TSD9 Times-For Parents
Message to Parents
This is the time of year when we all start looking back on where we have been and where we are now. There have been some challenges for sure, but through it all we are very proud that we have been able to honor and maintain traditions and practices that represent Tillamook: Relationships continued to be the focus of our district. Students, staff, and parents got things done with hard work and dedication. We didn't give up. Our community continued to surround us. All of those principles are reflected in this month's newsletter; we held a charity drive in a pandemic, we started going on field trips, we made great strides to get closer to "normal," we worked in gardens, we welded, and we hatched babies. It all took hard work, grit, determination, and commitment. In a year when it would have been easy to give up, we kept moving forward. In May we celebrate our teachers. This May we say an extra thank you to our teachers and all TSD9 staff for working so hard to keep traditions alive, and for making so many memories that our students will forever treasure.

Getting Out and About at South Prairie
Our first weeks back to full-time, on-site school have been a huge success. There have been several moments of feeling “back to normal” as we transition into larger class sizes, a return to lessons in the library, and having all of our friends with us at school. We even got to schedule our first field trips in over a year! Our 2nd graders were excited to go to the beach to learn about the coastal biome at Oceanside. Next month, our 3rd graders will visit Whiskey Creek Fish Hatchery as part of their science lessons. It feels good to get out into the community with our Prairie Dogs!
East is so thrilled to have all of her students back at school! Monday-Thursdays now have so much “life” in them. We are excited to make memories now in person even as we have made them from a distance in our recent past.
This week is both Summer Days Spirit Week and Certified Staff Appreciation. So the memories pile up even as we get back on track academically, socially, emotionally, and physically here at school. WE are still singing the same tune: Safe Responsible Polite. These are the words we know.

Charity Drive Success at THS
Tillamook High School would like to thank everyone who pitched in to support our charity drive this year. We blew our $50,000 goal out of the water by raising $81,760.60!
Congratulations to the Freshmen for having the highest participation rate. Please join us in celebrating our new Charity Drive King and Queen, Justin Werner and Daysha Chelone! Also, great work to the Freshmen class sponsors, Heather Phillips and Tracy Nuzum!
Día del Niño
The THS Juntos program celebrated día del niño this month by handing out Mexican candy to Cheeseblocks. Día del niño, or Children’s Day, is an annual celebration that is dedicated for the protection of children around the world and is celebrated on the 30th of April in Mexico.
Wilson River Students Working Hard
Students at Wilson School have returned on a daily basis and have been working hard both in and outside of the classroom. They have done a great job of getting those credits earned and have been working in the garden to get things planted and ready to go. Way to go!!!
