Bend Senior High School
Daily Announcements for all your Bend High updates!
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:
As I type this March message, I cannot believe that we have less than 4 months of school left this year. It has gone by so fast and these next few months will be busy. I again find myself very thankful to work at Bend High. I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for the staff, students and parents. What a phenomenal community.
If you are able, please show up as ALL of these students have put in a tremendous amount of time and energy. They are also REALLY good and they would like to showcase their talents. I am a HUGE supporter of the fine Arts, as I see the tremendous added value these programs accomplish!

This February-March, students at Bend High will be planning for next year. This month we will be forecasting our 9th, 10th and 11th grade students for next year (2019-2020). We will also be busy planning and preparing our seniors for graduation.
In the Curriculum Guide, that is online through Bend High’s website, there is section labeled Graduation Requirements. This page will show you the subjects offered, the credits required, and what grade they are offered. This page will guide your student and/or you in choosing the correct courses. Online version available on this site.
College Information and Expanded Options:
Students now have the opportunity to gain college credit by going to the community college as a way of supplementing their high school education. Please look at this page and find out more of how that might look for son or daughter. Contact the appropriate counselor for more details.
As we move forward into the last semester of high school, please check with your students, StudentVue, ParentVue, teachers and/or counselors, to make sure they are passing classes and on track with all their credits, to graduate in June. Also, please check the important Senior dates listed on this website. They need to be at graduation practices.
Big Week at Bend High School---“Academic Week”:
Coming March 18th -22nd. We will once again be celebrating Academic Week. This is a week that we bring recognition to hundreds of students for what they are doing and have done in academics. The culminating activity for the week will be our Academic Assembly on Thursday March 21st.
Spring Sports Season:
Spring sports include Baseball, Softball, Track, Golf, Rugby and Lacrosse (Club Sports). I’d like to encourage all students to get involved in extra-curricular activities. Educational research is clear that students who participate in extra-curricular activities are more likely to be successful in school and in life. Please get in early as we have only one Athletic Secretary, Athletic Director and Accountant at Bend High School to clear a large student population. Thanks for your patience, as we will utilize our resources to the best of our ability.
As our winter season is coming to an end we have observed some very special performances from many of our Bend High students!
Skiing (Alpine and Nordic)
There are many other accomplishments individually. I could not be more proud of these student athletes. They represented Bend High well. The thing that I am most proud of is the fact they did it with pride and class. Talk about sportsmanship. CHARACTER DESCRIBES BEND HIGH! Loud, proud and classy!
CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE APPRECIATION WEEK (March 4th – March 8th): A high school is more than the teachers, counselors and administration. We have an absolutely wonderful classified staff made up of custodians, secretarial and educational assistants. We at Bend High School could not function without these simply amazing individuals! They are Flat Awesome! Please thank a classified employee for what they do on a daily basis. The ones at Bend High are PHENOMENAL!
HAVE AN AWESOME MARCH! GO BEARS!Christopher Reese
