La Pine High School Students and Parents:
It is hard to believe the 2014-2015 school year is upon us. Our staff has worked hard this summer in preparing to best meet the needs of our students. We will continue our focus on instruction, with a narrow focus on student engagement, looking at what our students are saying, doing, and writing in our classrooms. We will continue to challenge our students academically and socially, preparing them to be college and career ready when they graduate from La Pine High School.
We are excited about the district's Digital Integrated Learning Initiative, resulting in every student at LPHS being issued an iPad 4 (16G) to use for the school year. The iPad will be loaded with instructional materials and books! Students must have a district-approved case with them to take home their iPad at rollout. Bend La Pine Schools strongly recommends purchasing iPad insurance to protect families in case of accident, theft, or loss. We will be providing every family with an Acceptable Use Policy , along with insurance information . If you need financial assistance with insurance or iPad covers, please contact Janet Sicora (x 8460) our FAN advocate.
La Pine High School students continue to score high on Oregon State Assessments, which is an accomplishment possible only with a dedicated staff, committed students, and supportive parents. We also value the experience our students gain outside the classroom with involvement in co-curricular activities through athletics, club, and other opportunities. We feel these experiences only add value in creating well-rounded students.
Our student leaders selected the motto, "Expect the Best . . . Success," which symbolizes the efforts of our students and staff having high expectations in the pursuit of success. We are excited about the opportunities that the coming weeks and months will bring as we build on the recent successes at La Pine High School.
