Administrator’s Newsletter

April 2014 

Dear Parents, Students, Guardians, and all who will read!!! 

With the beginning of the final quarter of school, we are all preparing for many year-end activities. End-of-Course math and biology assessments, Graduation, 8th grade promotion, and 6th grade orientation are only of few. If you are currently a parent/guardian of an 8th grade student moving up to high school next year and would like to be a part of the planning for 8th grade graduation, please contact Wendy McCoy. We look primarily for parents to plan this event and would love to have all interested parents/guardians working together on this milestone event.

Following up to the March Newsletter, we made mention of the possibility of hosting a Family Night, here at the Jr/Sr high for students and families. With the feedback gathered at the Academic Awards Banquet, we are working on planning the event to take place in May with the following activities: Movies, coloring, crafts, board games, video games and music. As well, we will host a Burger BBQ. Please look to the next newsletter for the specific date. We look forward to seeing you!

Continued from our March Newsletter as well, Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) is coming. If you missed the information in March, SBAC is a new form of assessment, given to students in grades 3-8 and grade 11. This new assessment will modify graduation requirements for our upcoming graduates in the class of 2015 and beyond. We all know and can recognize that education is an ever-changing field, and as dynamic as it is, we are working to prepare our students to be college and career ready. The SBAC can assist us in showing us how well our curriculum supports student readiness. For more information on SBAC please check out

On April 9, 2014 a parent group concerned with student math performance met with the school administration to discuss the school math program. The outcome of the meeting was very positive and the administration and math staff is now working on additional supports for our math students. On April 23, 2014 another meeting will be held to follow-up to the discussion that took place on the 9th. That meeting will specify the additional supports that will be put into place for math support with our high school students. If you or someone you know is available for tutoring in math, please have them contact the Jr/Sr high school at the number listed above.

On April 30, 2014, a mock event has been planned in coordination with the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Task Force and two seniors from the graduating class of 2014 for their senior project. This will be similar in many ways to past events presented in coordination with the task force. If you would like to be in attendance for this event or have any questions about the event, please contact Jodi Brown at the Jr/Sr high school at 289-3888.

Senior Boards are coming in May. In response to some seniors participating in post-league athletics, we have changed the presentation date from the 21st of May to the 20th of May. This day of school on May 20th will be a half-day. The 21st of May will be a full day of school. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mary Nelson at the North Beach Jr/Sr High School.
