Parent Teacher Conferences:
We are once again privileged to be able to hold our parent/ teacher conferences. We are excited to have the opportunity to meet with you, and talk about your son or daughter face to face! Please mark you calendars for Thursday, November 6
from 4:00-8:00pm. We will be meeting in the main gym. This is an AWESOME evening but just know that teachers have many students. Please plan on no more than a 5-minute conversation with each instructor. Please make sure to see the teachers you really need to see and have a copy of your students schedule with you. Our teachers are willing to set other appointment times besides just this date. If you need more than 5 minutes with a teacher please contact them directly by phone or email. Counselors and Administrators will also be available on this date.
As of November 5
we will have finished nine weeks of school. This marks the end of the 1
Quarter. We are asking you to look at your sons/ daughter's quarter progress report on Synergy (ParentVue or StudentVue). In January will be mailing out permanent grades. Our next grading report will be January 30th and that will mark the end of the first semester. At that time we will be mailing out a hard copy to all parents of their student's grades. If you desire to have a hard copy at quarter, please call our Curriculum Secretary at Bend Sr. High, Christine Thompson, at 541-355-3902 and she will be glad to send one home with your student.
Athletics and Activities:
This fall has been very busy with so many activities. I would like to take a moment and congratulate ALL of our fall sports. Our athletes and coaches epitomize character! Right around the corner will bring our winter sports and the start of a new athletic season. We would encourage your son or daughter to look at the following activates to join: Boys and Girls Basketball, Wrestling, Alpine Skiing, Nordic Skiing and Swimming. We also have several clubs that students can join. Please contact our Activities/Athletic Department to participate.
We had a phenomenal Choir Concert on October 23rd. Excellent job Luke MacSween and Bend High Choir! We have another Choir Concert on December 18th. Our Orchestra concert is scheduled for December 11th, as well as Band concert on December 16
. Drama will have performances coming up soon.
We have had some great assemblies for our students and staff:
October 8th OREGON SUPREME COURT
October 24th DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI / HOMECOMING
Upcoming: November 7th VETERAN'S DAY
What superb way to recognize and celebrate Bend High and the greater community. Our students and staff are lucky to be a part of such events and the list is too long to thank for those who organize and put on these assemblies. PLEASE KNOW THAT I SO APPRECIATE THE EFFORTS OF ALL THE STAFF WHO HELP PUT ON THESE WONDERFUL EXPERIENCES FOR OUR STUDENTS! I would especially like to thank Mackenzie Groshong (Activities Coordinator), Gary Whitley (Counselor and Distinguished Alumni Coordinator) and Pat Welch (Auditorium/Event Manager).
A season of thankfulness:
As we move closer to Thanksgiving Holiday, it reminds me of how thankful and grateful I am to have a community like Bend High School. Our staff, students, and parents make our school one of the best in the state of Oregon! THANK YOU SO MUCH AND I AM BLESSED TO BE HERE!
