I would like to thank everyone for your support this fall as we began this year with an all new administrative team. I am very fortunate to be working with Ms. Laurie Clark and Mr. Clinton Long as my new Assistant Principals. Ms. Clark has worked as an Assistant Principal in California and most recently worked at Everest College. Mr. Long was a math teacher and math coach at Mt. Rainier High School in Highline before his completed his administrative internship last year. We appreciated getting to know some of you at Open House and we are all looking forward to getting to know our families and our students this year.
We also were fortunate to hire four new outstanding teachers this year. Mr. Adams, English; Mr. Matiah Shaman, Math and Science; and Mr. Schriber and Mr. Phillips, Math. They are outstanding educators and are making a positive impact on our students already.
We have some big events coming up in October. First is Homecoming Week, the week of Oct. 14-18. The Leadership students have been planning activities and events for the week and the daily assemblies. We will be taking a slight timeout to give the PSAT and SAT test to all students on Oct. 16 and our Homecoming activity that day will be College Day and students will be wearing their favorite college spirit wear. The final assembly on Friday Oct. 18 will be a little longer than it has been in the past. A very special guest will be attending our assembly and help us celebrate Homecoming.
Nov. 12-13-14 are early release days for Conferences. The schedule and the process for conferences is still being developed so stay tuned for updates.
Again, I would like to all the families that have welcomed our new teachers and administrative team to Foster. It is a Great Day to be a Bulldog!
