Attention 8th grade Parents

You may have received a letter regarding college preparation for your 8th grader from a 3rd party company.  This company is not a college, or state or federal student aid program. It is a company offering college prep for a fee.  According to the Career and College Coordinator at SHS, there are several complaints against this company at the Better Business Bureau.  There is no need to pay for these services since there are many resources offering assistance for free. Oregon Goes to College is one such source.  Here is a checklist for students and families in Spanish and English.

Lost and Found

Please have your student(s) check the lost and found for any items that belong to them. Any items in our lost and found will be donated on Monday, November 25th.

Middle School Band Bingo

This Thursday, Nov. 14th is the Middle School Band Bingo fundraiser.  The will benefit the middle level band programs. It will be held from 6:00-8:00 PM at Laurel Ridge Middle school and is open to community members of all ages. There are bingo game booklets for purchase as well as raffle prizes. Pizza, popcorn, soda and candy will also be sold during the event, so come hungry and ready to play bingo and win fun prizes!

Chess Club Update!

We have a coach! Chess Club will be on Monday mornings at 7am in the Media Center. However, our first meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 12th, due to the Veteran’s Day Holiday.  Sign up today by filling out the permission form here and bringing it to the main office.

If your student is interested in taking the Ski Bus to Mt. Hood Meadows, please email your name and student name to Carly Barnett at This is not a district sponsored event.
