Superintendent's Message​​

December 2017

It is hard to believe we are closing out 2017, and are nearly half way through the school year. This time of year always seems to go by quickly. Best news of all: our seismic project is officially complete! While we still have some work to do in classrooms (a new computer lab upstairs and reinstalling of classroom technology) we no longer have a construction “night shift” toiling away on the building.

We also have a full agenda for December. Basketball season started off with two tournaments for the first weekend—one in Canyonville for the high school teams; another in Bend for our middle school team. Our teams did well in both. Congratulations to senior Noah Negus and junior Riata Norris who were both selected for the CCA All Tournament Team. The remainder of the month includes several home games for each team, as well as away games. Check the web page for updates. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

Progress reports are due December 7th, which marks the half-way point for the second quarter. Make sure to encourage your students to keep up with their classes, and to seek out support when they need it. Success sometimes requires an extra push; everyone needs a little help sometimes!

Christmas events for the Paisley Charter School include a holiday performance—“Fa La La Land”-- on December 20. It is a musical, involving dueling musicians, the mayor and other townspeople. Lots of beautiful young voices will make this musical event a “must see”! Paisley community events include a Christmas Contata on December 10 in the school auditorium and an “Ugly Sweater Dance” at the community center on December 16.

Winter break begins on December 21 and continues until January 2, 2018.

I wish all of the community a joyful Christmas and bountiful New Year!
