Dear Bowmen Community,
I hope you are all well and may you find great joy and a unique sense of connection through next week.
Quarter Two Schedule
In response to feedback from students, families and staff, we have made some adjustments to our daily schedule for Quarter Two. The most significant changes are the following:
- Homeroom is moved to one consistent time for all students (11:00am-11:30am)
- Homeroom will meet three days per week as opposed to five (Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays)
- Office Hours are 15 minutes shorter
Homeroom meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday
PCC dual credit courses for Q2
If you are taking WR 121, AP Calculus, AP Bio, AP US History, Archaeology & Prehistory, Pre-Calculus/Trig, Computer Science/ JAVA, Microcomputer Hardware and Troubleshooting, or Engineering 2: Rapid Prototyping this quarter, you may be in a PCC dual credit class – a class offered for high school credit and college credit concurrently. Ask your teacher if your course is offered for dual credit this quarter and how to register for the course.
If you would like to receive college credit and it is available this quarter, registration is currently open and will close January 16th, 2021. You must be accepted to PCC as a dual credit student before you register. After January 16th, we will be unable to add you to the college credit portion of the course. Please contact the SHS College & Career Center at 503-825-6335 if you have questions or need assistance with the process.
Cancer Awareness Week Postponed
Due to the Statewide “freeze” guideline, we decided to reschedule our Cancer Awareness Week. Be on the lookout for more information coming in the near future.
Our last Blood Drive on October 29th, held at Sherwood Center for the Arts, had 53 donors registered, 5 donors deferred, and 52 units were collected (113% goal attainment). The 52 units collected will serve 156 patients in need! Amazing!
Our next Blood Drive is December 12th and 19th. We’ll be sending out more information soon.
