Dear La Pine High School Students and Parents:
It is hard to believe the 2015-2016 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. This focus will be supported by a new system this year that we are implementing called AVID, which stands for;
Advancement/Via/Individual/Determination. Throughout this school year, you will hear more about AVID. 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.
The summer Bond projects have been completed and include the following improvements:
Complete remodel of both science classrooms, new gym bleachers, new track, new stadium lights and light poles, a new roof, and other various projects. The campus looks great and we appreciate the efforts of the contractors and our maintenance staff on the work that they have done this summer.
We have a few new faces on campus with addition of the following staff:
Aaron Flack - AD/Math/Head Wrestling Coach, Steve Cragun - PE/Head Football Coach, Erin Hoffman - Math Teacher, Lindsey Spring - ELA/Head Volleyball Coach, Kathy Graves - FAN, Kevin Collins - School Nurse.
We are excited about year 2 of the district's Digital Integrated Learning Initiative, resulting in every student at La Pine H.S receiving an iPad loaded with instructional materials and books for use this upcoming year.
La Pine High School Students continues to score high on Oregon State Assessments 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 a well-rounded student
We are excited about the opportunities the coming weeks and months will bring as we build on the recent successes at La Pine High School.
Important upcoming dates:
October 29th Parent/Teacher Conferences (3:15pm -7:15pm)
La Pine High is an outstanding school because of our staff, students, and community. Working together we can make a difference in the lives of our students.
Looking forward to a great year! Go Hawks!
