Clackamas Middle College

Principal's Message

December 1, 2018


As we head into winter break, a lot has happened during the fall trimester. I was able to see a great group of students enroll in our program and excel throughout the term. As a school leader, it is important for me to focus not only on educating students for their high school diploma, but getting all of them college and career ready.  Because of all of the hard work put in by our students and staff, we will celebrate as a school prior to the winter break.  The hard work put in by our staff and students has resulted in sending up 25 students to our Pathways to College Program.  The breakdown of the 25 students is as follows: 10 juniors, 15 sophomores.  We are very proud of these students and their commitment to …I Am College…. 


On the last day of school prior to winter break (Thursday, December 20th) we will be taking our students roller skating followed by brief service learning activity to help clean up Oaks Park.  Lastly, at the end of the day, we will be recognizing students for their hard work with a brief award ceremony.  We want to have fun as a school, and recognize students who have done well during the last three months.  It will be a great way to end a very successful fall trimester.


Last but not least, I would like to congratulate students into our Pathways to College Program.  We have 25 students who were recommended into this program and are completing the requirements for entry.  This is a cohort of students who have acquired college readiness skills, and are ready for their next step in the college journey.


Most of all, I would like to thank our wonderful students who have made this school year a success so far. I also would like to thank all of you who constantly support your son or daughter to make them better students. Without the help of everyone, we wouldn’t be able to fulfill our mission and vision.


Best wishes to you and your family during the winter break!


… I am College…
