Superintendent/Principal Message

   
Kevin Purnell,
ASD Superintendent/HS Principal
 

As we move from winter to spring, and our seniors approach the last quarter of their high school years, we move from the hustle and bustle of senior projects to the few extensions which are left.  As the school year is closer to the end than the beginning, you would think that we should be winding down our activities, but, like spring giving birth to new life, everything seems to come out of hibernation, including the school activities. 

 Aside from the athletic change of season, we still have the following to look    forward to:  the drama production, this year it is The Little Mermaid, spring music concerts, choir and band competitions, FFA State Convention, prom and       graduation! Just to name a few. Let us not forget that these are all extra-curricular activities.

 I would like to encourage our students to maintain their academic focus amid all of the hustle and bustle. Third quarter is coming to an end, and we have RSD Fridays available February 28th and March 6th. Thank you for what has already been a great year. I look forward to the remainder of our school year. 

 Winter athletics have nearly all come to an end, and teams and individuals     experienced success. Our boys’ basketball team finished fourth at the district tournament where Conley Martin was named 1st Team All-Tourney. Our girls’ team also finished fourth at the district tournament where Mesa Zimmerman was named 2nd Team All-Tourney. All-League honors will be announced at the team awards night.

 In wrestling, Toby Clow and Mats Ollenhauer both qualified for the 1A/2A State Championships to be held this Friday and Saturday at Veteran’s Memorial      Coliseum in Portland. Toby finished 3rd at the District Meet and received an at-large berth, while Mats finished 2nd at the District Meet and qualified outright.  We wish them success this weekend as they represent Adrian!
