Principal's Message

December 1, 2019


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 to focus on not only educating students for their high school diploma, but getting all of them college and career ready.  Because of the hard work put in by our students and staff, we will make sure to celebrate as a school prior to the winter break.


On the last day of school prior to winter break, our students will participate in a community clean up in partnership with SOLVE, a community organization aimed to bring Oregonians together to improve our environment and build a legacy of stewardship.  After a few hours of service to our community, we will take the school roller skating.  It is important 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.  The hard work put in by our students and staff has resulted in sending up 22 students to our Pathways to College Program.  The breakdown of the 22 students is as follows:  1 senior, 9 juniors, and 13 sophomores.  These students worked hard to complete 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.  We are very proud of these students and their commitment to …I Am College…. 


Most of all, I would like to thank our wonderful students and families who have made this school year a success so far. I also would like to thank all of you who support our students in their journey toward college readiness.  Without everyone’s help, 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…
