Estacada HS Newsletter

December 20, 2019

It's been a great final week of school before winter break as students dress up, play games, listen to music at lunch, and enjoy one another's company. I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, holiday season. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to school on Monday, January 6, 2020.

Upon return from the break, there will be three weeks of school before the end of the first semester. Final exams will be on January 23 & 24.

It's been a busy season for the Estacada High School music program. These young men and women do a tremendous job representing the high school as they perform. A big thank you for the dedication of music director, Rendell Frunk as well as the work of our accompanist, Boston Jackson.

Auto Yard

Estacada High School is adding a lean-to roof to increase workable space for students during inclement weather. The roof will be attached to the back of the woodshop. Funding for this project is provided by The High School Success Act (Ballot Measure 98 in 2016) which provides funds to establish or expand Career & Technical Education programs.

Night to Shine - February 7, 2020

On Friday, February 7, 2020, Estacada First Baptist Church will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, ages 14 and older. Now in its sixth year, this event has annually celebrated thousands of people with special needs all over the world on the Friday before Valentine’s Day!

Every guest of Night to Shine enters this complimentary event on a red carpet complete with a warm welcome from a friendly crowd and paparazzi. Once inside, guests receive the royal treatment, including limousine rides, professional photography, hair and makeup stations, corsages and boutonnieres, shoe shines, a catered dinner, karaoke room, Sensory Room, a Respite Room for parents and caretakers, and, of course, a dance floor… all leading up to the moment when each guest is crowned a king or queen of the prom. We want to make this night as incredible as possible for these unbelievably deserving individuals.
