Bend Senior High School
Daily Announcements for February 21-24
It is already February, and the second semester is almost underway. Here are a few items for you before we communicate again in March.
You should be receiving your student’s report card in the mail within the next couple of weeks. These grades are very important to each student because they are permanent and are on student’s individual transcripts. For those of you whose student is going onto college, these grades are especially important as they count towards admission. Regardless of the intent of each student towards higher education, each of these grades count as credits toward high school graduation. For those of you who had a great first semester, I congratulate you. For those of you who struggled, I urge you to get help from teachers and counselors so we can keep you on track for graduation. Lets finish this year strong!
Spring Sports Season: As we move closer to spring, we have a number of opportunities for students to be involved with athletics. Spring sports begin February 27, so make sure your student has been cleared through our athletic office by February 22 in order to participate in the first mandatory practice on February 27. For your convenience, an evening clearance night has been scheduled for Wednesday, February 22 from 4-7:30. Spring sports include Baseball, Softball, Tennis, Track, Golf, Rugby and Lacrosse. 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.
8th grade parent night: On February 27th we will welcome all incoming freshmen and their parents to our 8th grade orientation at Bend High. The evening begins at 6:30pm in our auditorium with a general meeting to introduce Bend High staff, and show off our award winning music programs. We will have representatives from BSHS clubs and activities set up in our commons for students to interact with and learn about the many opportunities at Bend High. Student Council students will lead tours of the school for parents and students. We hope to see our entire incoming freshman class on this fun and exciting evening of Lava Bear Pride.
Since this is a short month, I have a short message. However, these next few months will be busy for staff, students and parents. I will always say that I am so fortunate to be a part of Bend High. Every day I come to work I think how blessed I am to be part of such an amazing community. All for now………
