September 3rd! The first day of the 2014 - 2015 school year begins today. Just as a reminder, anyone needing to fill out an Inter-District Transfer, please do so right away and get them turned in. Also any students on the Free and Reduced Lunch program attending Sec Ops at New Market Skills Center will receive a boxed lunch that can be picked up in Ms. Halbert's classroom. We are hoping to have the lunches available starting on Thursday.

On Friday March 7th, Tim Voie's Washington State History class toured the State Capitol. While touring the grounds and buildings, the class had the opportunity to visit with one of our local congressman. State Representative Sam Hunt was happy to have his picture taken with the group of students. From left to right are: Sarah Brule, Representative Sam Hunt, Jasmin Corona, Orianna Clark, Jesse Lovely, and Cassey Shanks.
Students in Ms. Halbert’s Algebra class worked in teams to solve the problem of calibrating the length of a rubber band bungee so “Barbie” could have a safe Bungee Jumping experience. It didn’t always end well for Barbie, but with some re-calculations to the rubber band bungee, it made her next jumps a successful and fun experience. Thanks Barbie.
