Thursday, students from HMS who have signed up for a march drawing attention to the historic issue of Indigenous Women who have gone missing will be taking part in a march in combination with students from HHS. Students will come together at HHS and march the circuit of the high school campus before returning to class. Students are asked to wear their tshirts if they signed up. Also, Thursday will mark the debut of the After School Program to HMS. Students who have filled out the paperwork are asked to meet in the cafeteria at 2:45.
Due to some unavoidable athletic High School State conflicts and Middle School Regional athletic conflicts, we are opting to reschedule our ALL-District Band Concert to Friday, May 20th at 7:00pm in the H.S. Gym so that ALL students can participate. We sincerely hope that this does not cause scheduling conflicts and thank you all for your support and understanding

This message was sent on behalf of Wild Grief by PSESD's Student Support Services Team: Wild Grief offers unique nature based programs for grieving youth and families. Their programs combine peer support and nature connection to help anyone who has lost a loved one build community, normalize the grief experience, and draw upon nature as a source of resilience and healing. All programs are free and we work to make them as accessible as possible by providing all needed gear and offering gas cards if needed. We are currently accepting applications for our summer Teen Backpacking Trips and Family Journey Camp Out. The priority application deadline is April 30th. We will most likely extend the deadline for the Teen Backpacking Trips out a few weeks because we have three trips this year and have a lot of spots available still. Our Family Journey Camp Out is for bereaved families with children under 13. All food, camping gear, and camping fees are provided at no cost. Families will have fun together on hikes and in games, connect with other grieving families, and learn skills and ways to be with each other ongoing through the loss. There will be opportunities to process grief through conversations, creative activities, and nature connection together as a family as well as in peer groups. You can read more and apply here: https://wildgrief.org/family-journey We also have our cornerstone Teen Backpacking Trip. This is a 4-day adventure into the wilderness with 8 teens and 4 leaders to experience the awe inspiring beauty of nature, learn something about your grief and have fun! Free for grieving teens and all backpacking gear and food are provided. No experience necessary!

Welcome back from Spring Break!!! We are excited to be heading down the home stretch for this school year. In the coming weeks students will begin state testing and finishing assignments and projects for the end of the school year. As a reminder if you or child experiences symptoms of COVID-19 please stay home. COVID-19 testing in school helps keep students in class and doing the things they enjoy. After being out for the last week HSD wants to remind you we offer regular COVID-19 testing at the middle school each morning starting at 7:30am. Testing is available for students, staff and families that need it. Our goal is to keep our schools healthy and safe and finish the year strong. If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 please contact Nurse Rhianna or Jason Ihde.
