Shout Out Blog

It took a team

posted Sep 17, 2017, 1:23 AM by HSD Principal

Thank you to all of you this past week for:
  • helping coach your houses through Spirit Week activities
  • being flexible after classes were called off on Tuesday and we had to change schedules - again - on Wednesday and Thursday
  • cheering on our students as they competed
And another big thank you to the ExCo team for putting everything together. The number and variety of activities was great.

High School Retreat

Huge, huge thanks to Etta, Crystal and the ExCo officers for planning and pulling off High School Retreat last week. You guys are rock stars.

And thanks for all of the ways all of you individually helped make retreat possible. I want to especially thank Dennis for organizing the concert of prayer the second night. That time was really powerful for many students and prompted at least one to make a commitment to Christ. That makes it worth sleeping on thin mattresses for a few nights!

Meet the Teacher

Thank you all for spending an afternoon meeting parents. We've debated the value in the event in recent years, but many parents still appreciate you taking the time to talk about your classes with them.

Hosting the AXIS Team

Thanks to Les and Donna for hosting our AXIS team last week (and thanks to the Ballentynes for staying up late and taking them in that first night when I got their travel date wrong). Also thanks to the Baucks, Clarks, and Taylor & Company for hosting them for meals. They had a great time being here and spending time with all of you and with our students.

Registration Help

A big thank you to all of you who helped during registration this week. I think we may have been done in record time on Monday and Tuesday. 

A very big thank you to Jason who volunteered to sit in the office and help students with schedule changes this week.

And a superlatively big thank you to Lori, who not only helped with changes this week, but spent hours over the final weeks of summer handling schedule change requests so the lines would be short on the actual registration days.

"Beginnings & Bearing"

posted Aug 17, 2016, 1:11 AM by HSD Principal

Thank you for all your hard work preparing for, and starting off the school year so well.  Thanks also for your bearing with me as I learn new things and often take a while to answer questions.  

Praise the Lord

posted May 28, 2016, 2:12 AM by HSD Principal

For all that has been accomplished this past year, for all the lives that have been touched by His Spirit, for the faith to persevere through trials, for the privilege of being a part of His work...The LORD alone deserves the praise and glory.

This final Shout Out is to our faithful GOD who has sustained all of us in HSD and given us good gifts!

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever." (Psalm 106:1)

- Huge congratulations to Todd, Jenny, Drew, Sarah, Hubert, Dennis, Jason, Crystal and Glenn for a successful final music concert on Friday. You and your students did us all proud. 

- Did you notice there's now space for your lunch in the staff fridge? THANK YOU ROBERTA MAXWELL for your generous service to us. :-)

Covering for each other

posted May 14, 2016, 5:19 AM by HSD Principal

We have had and will have various 'holes' in our teaching schedules as members of our team attend to a variety of matters that require them to be absent from school.  We would like to appreciate all of you who have subbed and will be subbing for various classes this last month and half. Your willingness to serve each other this way is a blessing.

A big thank you to the Staff Banquet Committee for a blessed evening of celebrating good things the Lord has done. We recognize how much time and work went into putting the event together. We appreciate your labor of love. MAHALO NUI LOA (thank you very much).
