Shout Outs (Academic, Athletics, Activities)
As so many other weeks, last week was a busy one, below you can read about some of the things happening around our school, as well as see a few pictures of these events. Congratulations go out to all students and staff that continue to represent our community in the most positive of ways.
Thanks to all who supported our production of Descendants. Our students, under the direction of Tiffany Carstensen and with the help of other McKay teachers, did a phenomenal job!
Congratulations to our Speech and Debate team who, for the first time since before COVID, competed in McMinnville on Saturday, January 28. They hope to compete in Reynolds and Oregon City in the upcoming months! Please congratulate Piper and Seth. Thanks, Mr. Blommendahl, for your work with these talented students!
Scots-appella competed in the ICHSA West Quarterfinal on Friday, January 27 in Sherwood. Patrick won best vocal percussion and our Scots won best choreography, as well as FIRST place overall! Next stop: California! Congrats Scots-appella! Way to represent McKay High School!
Two of our Custodial Staff were recognized by the district for their excellence. This past week Craig Richards and Christopher Bartruff were awarded the "Golden Broom," for their continued service to McKay High School.
Both our Boys and Girls Basketball teams will be in action this week, with out Boys team playing at home on Tuesday evening, while our Girls team return home for a Friday game vs. Crescent Valley. Please join us and show your support.
