  • Spring 2019

    Dear Fabulous Community Members, It is so nice to see that spring has finally arrived with warmer weather and flowers blooming. In the schools, lots of blooming has been happening, too. To start, our arts programs both Band and Fine Arts have had stellar accomplishments. Our Art students placed four of the eight winning entrants in the Northwest ESD regional competition and two of eight at the State level competition. Band programs earned Superior ratings in their concert competitions. Although the students created these wins, special kudos must go out to their teachers, Andy Anderson and Cart Nelsen for the inspiring instruction and mentorship that led both groups to such high honors. Truly amazing work from our small high school!

  • Winter 2019

    Dear Fabulous Community Members, Happy 2019! This school year, all of our schools have been working to increase consistent and systemic protective factors for our students so that regardless of whatever else may be happening in a student’s life, ALL students find school a safe place to learn, with practices they can count on, and a place where they are cared for. Our schools have found ways to have students ready themselves for learning quickly, thus ensuring a consistent learning environment each time their teachers are ready to begin. In one school, all staff members, in their initial greeting of students, ask each student what is going well for them. So, regardless of all the possible turmoil a student might have in their life, they start their day at school reminding themselves of what is going well, that staff care for them, providing them with a kick start to a productive day.
