Message from the Superintendent:

“A Day with our Students”

     The greatest impact that we can make on our community is to prepare students that are confident in their ability to learn!  Mt. Adams School District hosted a first annual “Day with our Students” to showcase our students and staff on December 3.  Thank you to Senator Cantwell’s office, Heritage University, Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences, ESD 105, Yakima Sheriff’s Office, Yakama Nation Law Enforcement, Yakama Nation Higher Education Department and, of course, representatives from our local churches and families for your participation which was a great reassurance and inspiration for all of us.  As we continue our efforts to improve and hone our craft, it is even more apparent that it will take our community support to make it happen for our kids.

      Attendees visited and observed several classrooms on both the elementary and secondary campus – watching teachers and students in action.  Both campuses had student showcases which featured a number of programs and projects that our students are involved with currently.  The students were impressive in their comfort level to interact with our guests and explain their work--trust me, you would have been proud to see them in action.  Our guests affirmed what we already know – we have a great staff and great students.

     We look forward to next year’s event and even more participation from you as parents/guardians.

     Finally, thank you parents/guardians for your participation in our first Community Needs Assessment, distributed at parent teacher conferences.  Over 250 surveys were completed.  We are in the process of reviewing and implementing the suggestions.
