Shout Out Blog

Thanks to Joyce and sunny for organizing and running the PSAT - including the new registration process we didn't anticipate. It ended up being more work - and more time - than was planned for. Thanks also to those who gave up their morning to proctor.

Sunday Afternoon Tech Help

posted Sep 23, 2018, 4:56 AM by HSD Principal

A big thanks to Ahme who answered a Sunday afternoon tech request for someone when I was unable to offer assistance. We merely whispered her name, and like a magical fairy, she appeared out of thin air in the staff lounge to help with cloud printing.

Thanks, Ahme!

Spirit Week

Thanks to everyone who judged contests, supervised activities, coordinated rehearsals, helped make costumes or props, or otherwise participated in Spirit Week. We could not have done it without your help.

Unclippable Bond

Thanks to all of you who attended the prayer and worship night on Saturday. I appreciate your involvement in student-led activities, and the students noticed your attendance. It's encouraging when different members of our community get together in that way.

High School Retreat

posted Aug 27, 2018, 1:28 AM by HSD Principal

Thank you to everyone who:
  • sat in the dark waiting to be found
  • led homeroom discussions
  • kept order on busses
  • attempted to keep students inside cabins for curfew
  • rallied support for retreat activities
  • woke up early or stayed up late to supervise events
  • judged another dance competition
  • played games with students
  • had conversations about a whole range of topics
And a big thank you to everyone who was flexible in reorganizing busses when we hit unexpected snags. Thanks especially to Linda for helping to coordinate plan B with the drivers and to Dennis and Nik who volunteered to take public home from C5 to ease the driver's fears of being nabbed for a violation.

A big thanks to Lori, Maddy, Evan, Carl, Joyce, Jerry, Linda, Kevin, Carolyn, and Sunny for helping with registration this week. It was a busy day, but we were able to get through all the waiting students and just about everyone has a complete schedule.

Accreditation Week

posted Mar 11, 2018, 4:14 PM by HSD Principal

Thank you for being a part of our accreditation process last week - even if you weren't looking forward to it. The team loved being here on campus and seeing what we were doing as a school. 
Thanks also for being flexible as team members were in and out of your rooms and students were coming and going for team discussions.

Ethics Interviews

posted Feb 25, 2018, 2:55 PM by HSD Principal

I want to give a shout out and thank you to all my wonderful colleagues who have given time to my students for their Ethics interviews project.  The students learn that these topics are probably more complex than they originally thought, and they get to observe how people think and come to conclusions about ethical issues.  I am always pleased to read about the good and godly advice they get from their teachers.  You guys are the best!
