Bend Senior High School
Daily Announcements for the week of April 16-20
I hope you all had a very relaxing and enjoyable spring break. I cannot believe that we are already at this point in the school year. The next three months will be very busy. This home stretch will fly by and there will be a lot of important items in the weeks to follow. I am excited about the spring sports season and all the activities that happen this time of year. There are too many of those events to list but they are on the Athletic and Activities pages of this website. Please take a look at the calendar of events and join us if you can. I cannot express enough my thankfulness for all the support I have received this year. Bend High is a PHENOMENAL community made up of wonderful students, staff and parents.
End of 3rd Quarter:
April 13th marks the end of 3rd Quarter. These are progress grades. Please check ParentVue for your student’s progress. Grades should be posted by Monday, April 16th if not sooner.
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 your calendars for Monday, April 16th 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 student’s 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.
Big Week at Bend High School---“Academic Week”:
Coming April 16th -20th. 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 April 19th.
It is that time of year again. Our very own Mr. BSH Pageant. What a great evening and culminating event. These guys raise a lot of money for a great cause by hosting fundraisers throughout the year. Please come and cheer on your favorite Mr. BSH participant on Thursday, April 5th @ 6p in the Auditorium. See you there!
What an AWESOME opportunity for all of our juniors. Tuesday, April 3rd is ACT day and we will be testing all of our 11th grade students. This is the actual ACT that juniors can use for university admission and NCAA Clearinghouse. The best part is that the test is free to all students. There will be a make-up day on April 24th if students cannot make the April 3rd date.
Friday, April 13th from 7-10p @ Riverhouse Convention Center
This is a very busy month with assessments of students. We will be administering IB testing, CTE testing, ACT, ACT ASPIRE and not to mention Smarter Balanced. Smarter Balanced is the new state test to measure Essential Skills. Students must pass these tests to graduate. If they do not pass they can still graduate by showing proficiency through work samples and/or other testing options. Please ask your students about testing this month.
Even though I enjoy my breaks, it is always nice to come back to Bend High. It is like a home away from home. THANK YOU EACH AND EVERY ONE!
HAVE AN AWESOME APRIL! GO BEARS!
