Superintendent’s Message

October 2018

The leaves are changing colors, the weather is becoming unpredictable (sweater in the morning and sweating in the afternoon)…it must be fall!

The beginning of the school year always seems to zip by. We are in the fourth full week of school, the first progress reports have been sent home and I already am behind. Fortunately, our students seem to have a better grasp of time; they all are into the swing of things and doing well.

Our sports teams are also doing well. The soccer team has kept up in a very competitive league, holding a win-loss record of 4 and 4. The varsity volleyball team has been equally competitive. They are currently in 5th place in the league, with a record of 9 wins and 9 losses. These results are especially impressive considering half of each team is new to Paisley, representing 12 countries as part of our exchange student program. For several, it is the first time they have been on a competitive team! They are playing as if they have known and played together for years! Kudos to the players and the coaches. Come watch a game—they are exciting!

Community service projects are already underway for both the Distance Learning Program and the Charter school. The DLP is continuing a project--initiated in previous years--volunteering at the Oregon Food Bank. Paisley town students are planting sagebrush in a section of burn caused by the Withers fire two years ago. These projects are representative of the district commitment to develop well-rounded citizens. Events such as these are planned throughout the year to support this important goal. Check both school calendars for more information.

Enjoy the fall! We are lucky to be in such a beautiful environment!
