Principal's Corner
First semester is ending soon and students and staff are working diligently to prepare for finals week. Some staff will be asking students to take a final exam where other staff will have students working on a final project to demonstrate their mastery of the first semester instruction during the 90 minute block of time. Schedule will be posted on the McLoughlin High School Website.
We are off to a strong start with our new electives. Culinary Arts is filling our halls with some tantalizing aromas. Students fed staff a boxed lunch one day of pizza, salad, and desert. It was wonderful. They also have baked cupcakes as a fund raiser, each kitchen prepared a full Thanksgiving meal, and they baked cookies at Christmas for our community Senior citizens. Mrs. Goodyear and our students are preparing for some upcoming community events.
Mr. Pumphrey's Construction students are building small scale houses to prepare them for the building of a storage shed. The students enjoy sharing their work.
Mrs. Burnham's Art students are preparing for their second art show at Tamastslikt Cultural Institute. Their first show was well received by the community in down town Milton Freewater at the Arts Portal Gallery. Some students even sold some of their work at that show!
Mr. Martinez's Ag Power Mechanics students have spent a semester learning to weld and repairing small engines. Mr. Pumphrey and Mr. Martinez are contacting BMCC and WWCC and local businesses to see how we can prepare our students for the community college and/or industry.
Students interested in the medical field are just completing their medical terminology class, first semester Advanced Biology, Pre-Calculus or Calculus, and preparing for second semester Eastern Oregon State University Medical Career Pathways course, another section of Medical Terminology, and Anatomy and Physiology,
Our class period at the end of the day - 8th period is paying off. This is a time of the day where staff is connecting with students and preparing them for academic success at Mac-Hi while helping them plan for a future after highschoo/. We have had numerous speakers from the business world and colleges visiting with our students. Half of our seniors are scheduled to attend a scholarship fair in Walla Walla. We also have a college fair in Pendleton coming up and an ODOT career day in Baker City coming in March.
It is a Great Day to BE A Pioneer!!!
