Pendleton High School November 30th Newsletter

PHS students Nariah Alexander and Mollee Allen pose here next to Principal Dan Greenough. The students were recognized at the monthly board meeting held at Wildhorse Resort and Casino. November is the National Native American Heritage Month. During the month of November, all PHS students were able to hear from representatives from 20 different Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Departments. There were a total of 23 individuals that came to PHS to present. Thank you for your time and willingness to come to PHS to share a little more about the CTUIR Tribal Departments! Other events during the month included a "Roc your Mocs" dress up day and a Fry Bread fundraiser for the NABOR student organization.
Art student Nasirah Rawlinson accepts an award for her photo entitled "Distance". Blue Mountain Community College hosted PHS student artwork in the Pioneer Hall from November 2nd to the 23rd.
Above are PHS robotics students hard at work prepping their robots or the fields on which the robots compete. We have now completed 2 league meets and the "league zero" meet. These take place every two weeks at the Pendleton Convention Center. PHS is hosting the largest gathering of robotics in the state, with two separate leagues created as a result. The public is welcome to come in and watch what is going on at these competitions free of charge. The next meet will take place on December 13th between 4:00 and 8:00. Competitions generally start after all of the check-ins at around 6:00.
Kristin "Chef K" Swaggart with her $100,000 check from Farmer's Insurance Dream Big Teacher Challenge. A huge thank you to the community for your support in getting the word out and voting every day in October for Chef K. The food truck will be purchased for use next year and will be utilized for fund raising and community service. What a great show of support for our students and program!!
Congratulations goes out to Kaci Graber, Diana Cisneros, Jonathan Wolotira, Wade Coleman, and Hannah Mossman for their acceptance into the All-Northwest honor ensemble for 2017 in Bellevue, WA. This is a tremendous honor, as the limited spaces are filled with students from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska. The performance will take place on February 19th.
A new site has appeared at the Carden Street entrance to PHS! The electronic readerboard will be used by the PHS leadership class to promote school activities and for communicating special announcements. Thank you again to the Pendleton community for supporting the School Bond.
