Speech Tournament Update from Ms. Pearson

Bandon went head to head with 26 other schools and 225 other students this weekend, competing at the Clackamas Holiday Edge Tournament (the kids call it the biggest tournament of the year). Lots of fun was had as we were encouraged to dress up in holiday gear, and I took second place in the ugly sweater contest. As you may have seen in the hallways during 7th period, the kids were hard at work the past couple of weeks making sure they were ready to go for the tournament.

Student hand book

All of our students should have recently signed a behavior agreement form that acknowledges that they have reviewed the student handbook, and know what the behavior expectations are at HLMS. We would appreciate it if you could take a moment to review the student hand book (link below) as well.
Student Hand Book

Please take some time to review our student handbook with your student. We would particularly like you to remind your student of our expectations with regards to cell phones and appropriate technology use.

Cell Phone Policy

Just a reminder, students are not allowed to have cell phones out during school hours. We require them to be kept off and in their locker or backpack during the day. This includes breaks and at lunch. Please encourage your student to come to the office or their teachers if they have a concern or need help instead of reaching out to you via cell phone during the day. This way we can help make sure that all your student's needs are being met. We have a student phone available in the commons that is always available.
