Principal's Message

by Vicki McNeill, HS Principal 


Attention Parents:


Don't forget to mark your calendars for the HS Coffee event with the Principal. It will be held next Thursday, April 11th at 5:30 pm in the Wang Auditorium.  We hope to see you all there!

                                                           Yearbook 2017-2018

We are proud to say that last year's yearbook cover was pictured in Josten's 2019 Look Book.


The Look Book shows photos of the top designs and concepts of Josten's clients from 2018 yearbooks. Theme ideas, page layouts, sports pages, photography, etc. are featured in the yearly published book as an inspiration resource for others.


Over 2,000 yearbooks are submitted for consideration in the Look Book. About 385 yearbooks are chosen to be featured. Only about 80 covers were pictured, including ours!


Current Junior Maiya Harding did the artwork for the cover, with former student Abigail Dietrich helping to develop the design concept.

HS Academics Thoughts

by Alex Ramsvig, HS Dean of Academics


Aloha All,


I hope everyone had an enjoyable break!  This week students across the HS were asked to, once again, fill in and complete a paper copy progress check form. You should have seen the completed form brought back for your review and signature. There are a number of purposes for this process:


1. To encourage student agency over their academic progress (so that they know where they currently stand).

2. To give a required opportunity for students to meet in person with each of their teachers to discuss where they are currently performing.

3. To allow parents to have a discussion with their student based on actual information (rather than relying on a general "Sense" a student may have about where they are at)


Of course, this is only one way to check on student progress during a year. Parents are always welcome to reach out to teachers or me if there are questions or concerns.


Have a great week!
