Spring is in the air! With only 6 weeks left of the school year staff and students are working hard to end the year on a positive note. Mid term progress reports will be sent home in the next couple of days. Parents and students should remember that if students have any credits missing, we only have this summer to recoup those credits using the same criteria we used during CDL. Starting in September students will need to retake the entire course to recoup their missing credits. School staff will be contacting families of students to make final arrangements to complete credit earning assurance plans a.s.a.p. (see below- credit earning opportunities available this summer!)

We have begun state testing for 11th graders in Language Arts and Math. All students will be expected to participate in the testing unless they have a signed waiver form in the office.

El personal de la escuela se pondrá en contacto con las familias de los estudiantes para hacer los arreglos finales para completar los planes de garantía de obtención de créditos a.s.a.p. (vea a continuación, ¡oportunidades para obtener créditos disponibles este verano!)

Now that students are back in school it is really important to make sure you did the annual agreements and health questioner so we have them on file.

We are looking for students (past and present), community members and classified staff members who are interested in educating our students to be a part of this program.

We want our staff to be representative of our student population. Our collective experiences serve to strengthen the support we are able to offer to our students and make for a stronger community in the future.

Candidates will be supported through their educational process with a mentor who will be able to assist with academic support throughout the program, college applications and funding support, licensure, tutoring, job interview preparation and more. This is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in a career in the educational field!

Included in our current candidate cohort are our Hispanic Liaison, Juan Pozos and students Yasmine Cruz-Lilly and Dario Ayala. We are excited to start this project off with some great candidates! More information on this program can be found on the NKN DEP Program page.

Buscamos estudiantes (pasados ​​y presentes), miembros de la comunidad y miembros del personal clasificados que estén interesados ​​en educar a nuestros estudiantes para que sean parte de este programa.

Queremos que nuestro personal sea representativo de nuestra población estudiantil. Nuestras experiencias colectivas sirven para fortalecer el apoyo que podemos ofrecer a nuestros estudiantes y crear una comunidad más fuerte en el futuro.

Los candidatos recibirán apoyo a lo largo de su proceso educativo con un mentor que podrá ayudar con el apoyo académico durante todo el programa, solicitudes universitarias y apoyo financiero, licenciatura, tutoría, preparación para entrevistas de trabajo y más. ¡Esta es una gran oportunidad para cualquiera que esté interesado en una carrera en el campo educativo!

Incluidos en nuestra cohorte de candidatos actual están nuestro Enlace Hispano, Juan Pozos y los estudiantes Yasmine Cruz-Lilly y Dario Ayala. ¡Estamos emocionados de comenzar este proyecto con algunos excelentes candidatos!

Se ha reservado tiempo del 16 al 25 de junio en la escuela secundaria para que usted se ocupe de sus asuntos. ¡Regístrese ahora con Esther (esthert@nknsd.org) para volver al camino! Tu futuro ... tu responsabilidad ... tu elección ... ¡No la desperdicies!

Note from the Athletic Director:

Greetings Pirate Fans!


Spring sports are entering the final weeks of their season so that means our traditional winter sports (basketball and wrestling) are right around the corner. The first official practice for wrestling and basketball will be May 10th. Be sure to have all your required paperwork into Family ID and make sure your students physical is current. You may notice that spring sports will still be competing while "winter" sports begin practicing...not to worry. Finish your spring sports strong and upon completion come on out for the next season.


As we finish up this school year coaches are planning summer training opportunities. Stay tuned for more information as we confirm those plans.


Lastly...I just want to thank all the parents and athletes as we have made our way through this odd sports season.


Your patience and understanding through these times have been much appreciated,

Thank you and Go Pirates!

Nota del Director Atlético:

¡Saludos, fanáticos de los piratas!


Los deportes de primavera están entrando en las últimas semanas de su temporada, por lo que nuestros deportes de invierno tradicionales (baloncesto y lucha libre) están a la vuelta de la esquina. La primera práctica oficial de lucha libre y baloncesto será el 10 de mayo. Asegúrese de tener toda la documentación requerida en la identificación familiar y asegúrese de que el examen físico de sus estudiantes esté al día. Puede notar que los deportes de primavera seguirán compitiendo mientras los deportes de "invierno" comienzan a practicar ... no se preocupe. Termine sus deportes de primavera con fuerza y, una vez finalizados, salga para la próxima temporada.


A medida que terminamos este año escolar, los entrenadores están planeando oportunidades de entrenamiento de verano. Estén atentos para obtener más información mientras confirmamos esos planes.


Por último ... solo quiero agradecer a todos los padres y atletas por haber atravesado esta extraña temporada deportiva.


Su paciencia y comprensión durante estos tiempos han sido muy apreciadas.


¡Gracias y Go Pirates!

Softball:

The girls are having a great season so far. We won a big game at Gaston this past Tuesday, April 27th, as well as beating Vernonia three games in a row, and a win against Knappa. Currently, we are in the running for a spot in our league playoffs and a potential place at state. The lineup consists of starting five juniors, two sophomores, and two freshmen. Hailey Ernst, our junior starting pitcher, has been throwing very well. Her relief pitcher, Melly Pierson, has stepped it up as a freshman at times when we need it most. America's Pierson hit a home run during the past week too! All of the girls have been playing solid softball. This is Coach Jackson’s 7th season with the team.
