Bend Senior High School

Welcome to Bend Senior High School!


Message from the Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

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 1st 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.

1st Quarter Grades: As of November 2nd, we will have finished nine weeks of school. This marks the end of the 1st Quarter. We are asking you to look at your sons/ daughter’s quarter progress report on Synergy (ParentVue or StudentVue). In February will be mailing out permanent grades. Our next grading report will be February 1st and that will mark the end of 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, Ari Lawton, 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 will have phenomenal choir, orchestra and band concerts this fall. We are also looking forward to drama performances coming up. Please check our calendar and help us celebrate our amazing fine arts department.

We have some great assemblies for our students and staff:


November 9th 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), International Baccalaureate (Distinguished Alumni Coordinators), all Bend High Administrators/Counselors 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!
