Pendleton High School new pendleton tech and trades center kitchen!!

This has been a busy month getting things ready for the first group of students at the Pendleton Technology and Trades Center. The new labs are now operational and we are very excited to now welcome students into the facility for the Culinary Arts and Industry & Engineering classes. There will be an Open House for the CTE Advisory Board and School Board members on February 28th from 2:00-3:00. A community Open House is tentatively scheduled on April 13th during evening conferences.

The P-Tech kitchen area consists of a dining facility, food preparation area, full industrial kitchen, and a demonstration classroom. Students in Foods 2-4 will be able to take classes in the new facility and utilize the new equipment.

On inservice day, staff from PHS and SMS came in to tour the building and learn more about the programs. One lucky member from each group won an engraved coffee mug after watching the “raster” process on our new laser cutter/engraver. A huge “thank you” goes out to Pendleton Foundation Trust for funding the $20,235.00 high-tech machine! The video above shows the machine at work making a plaque for this piece of equipment recognizing the Pendleton Foundation trust for their grant. The picture above is of one of the coffee mugs that was "engraved" with the machine.

Pendleton hosted it's only home dual of the year for wrestling. Above, Jeff Kovach gets the better of his opponent and ended up pinning the wrestler from Hood River.
Above, Jeff Wood talks with Biology students about the process for blood-typing. Jeff came out from Interpath Labs to walk our students through this process. Thank you for your time!
On January 21st, 25 teams from all over the region competed in the 2nd annual Columbia Basin FTC Robotics Qualifying Tournament held at the Pendleton Convention Center. PHS team “Robotica” with students River Engum, Redmond O’Hanlon, Jayce Coehlo, and Syler Rimbach surfaced to the top after a long day of competition. They will now advance to the Super-Qualifier in Hillsboro on February 11th and 12th to compete against the other top teams in the state. Two teams from SMS will also advance as a result of their strong performance during the tournament and high ranking throughout the season. We are very proud of the work they all put in this year. And, we would also thank the 40+ people from the community that volunteered a significant amount of time to make these events happen in Pendleton! Congratulations goes out to Mr. Michael Dinkel for being one of the first people in Pendleton certified by the FAA to commercially operate UAS platforms. He also has two students who will likely earn their certifications too before the end of the school year!
Students in the Art I and Art II classes worked with Roberta Lavadour from the Pendleton Center for the Arts to create mini accordion books. This project was made possible by a grant from the Education Foundation of Pendleton.
The foods classes were very fortunate to have guest chef Shawn Hanlin on campus. He demonstrated the art of making fresh pasta, and served it with homemade marinara and pesto sauce. He is the Executive Director of Culinary Arts at the awarding-winning Oregon Coast Culinary Institute, located on the Southwestern Oregon Community College Campus.
