Superintendent's Message​​

 December 2016 Newsletter

Happy Holidays to all of our families and friends. Speaking of holidays, our annual Christmas play is scheduled for December 15th in our auditorium beginning at 7:00 P.M.

Our Students of the Month for November were revealed at our assembly last week. The word for November was KINDNESS. Our recipients were Katie Murphy, Becca Basurto, and Henry Hyde. Congratulations to them. Our word of the month for December is LEADERSHIP.

Our basketball season is in full swing. The varsity boys and girls have played one game with many more scheduled in the near future. Our middle school boys participated in a tournament in Bend this past weekend and represented Paisley in a very positive way. Please check our basketball schedules on our Paisley Activity Page on Facebook, on our website, or on our reader board. Our concession stand will open beginning with our home game on December 17th against Surprise Valley.

As you may have heard, we are planning a Centennial Celebration that will coincide with our annual Mosquito Festival on the last weekend of July 2017. Ashley O’Leary and Kaylin Arrington are the main organizers of this event. They need your help in getting the word out to anyone you might know who would like to attend this event or at least receive information about that weekend.

They have posted centennial information on Facebook. Anyone is welcome to attend but if you or anyone you know would like a formal invitation to the celebration please contact Ashley or Kaylin or Alexa at front office with your name and mailing address. You do not need to be an alumni or former student of Paisley School. We will send you an invite with all the pertinent information about the weekend.

If you have any memorabilia from your years at Paisley please contact the school. We want to have these precious items on display during the celebration. Any questions should be directed to Ashley ( or Kaylin ( We hope to have a large turnout.

Our Distance Learning Program has a busy December lined up. Students are touring Phillip Foster Farm for the Winter Days on December 8. On the 13th students will Sleep with the Sharks at the Oregon Coast Aquarium and will visit the Eugene Science Factory as well.

The search for our new superintendent will begin in January. We will keep you informed as the process moves along.

Again, have a great holiday season and we will see you in January.
