Schedule for next week

Wednesday 10/10: PSAT day for all 10th grade students and 11th grade students who pre-registered! The PSAT is paid for by the district and can help students meet graduation requirements in Essential Skills, prepare them for the SAT, and help students qualify for scholarships.

Please make sure that your students are well-rested, well-hydrated, and have eaten a good breakfast. The test begins promptly at 8:20 and all testing students must be in their classrooms by 8:10. If you have any questions, please contact the school.

Friday 10/12: NO SCHOOL. Friday is Oregon Statewide Inservice Day which allows staff to engage in professional development opportunities.

Family Phone Voicemails

We like to make as many positive contacts home as possible. Please help us reach you by making sure your phone voicemails are set up and can accept calls from our number. Since all calls originating from our school have the same number, we may not always know who is calling you. Please make sure to check your voicemail before returning calls so we can direct you appropriately.


We had a great Homecoming Assembly today with a Staff Band (Mr. Stearns, lead vocals & keys; Dr. Wagner & Ms. Blount: backup vocals; Mr. Cosentino: drums; Mr. Dickerson: guitar), Cheer performance, great class skits related to our Homecoming Theme of "Game of Games" and the introduction of our Homecoming Court. Hope you can make it to our Homecoming Game tonight against Cleveland HS!

Homecoming Dance is tomorrow night (10-6). Students will not be admitted without a previously purchased ticket. Dress is semi-formal.
