  • Summer School Information

    Summer school this year will be divided into two sections: Credit Recovery and Incomplete Recovery. 

    If you have failed a class PRIOR to the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year, you are eligible to take an online credit recovery class.  Students who sign up for credit recovery will be enrolled in Edgenuity and can do the class at their own pace throughout the summer.  To enroll in Credit Recovery, click here:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfnYaRzt2ptZ1g1lxv7CVj-wWk6zbfWYJLQRQ1Tmx4mrCGtTA/viewform?usp=sf_link

    Incomplete Recovery will be for students who received an ‘I’ in a class during the second semester of the 2019-2020 school year.  There will be two sessions for the incomplete recovery: 6/22/20- 7/10/20 and 7/20/20- 8/7/20.  Students enrolled in the Incomplete Recovery sessions will have the opportunity to make up the learning targets missed during Distance Learning.  To enroll in Incomplete Recovery, click here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdr3q312MvUlMuaat8bfCw6ll3Tux5jWwMlAtGKd-6HFezO2g/viewform?usp=sf_link

  • Bruce Schmidt Receives Award from Oregon Music Educators Asssociation

    Each year, the Oregon Music Educators Association (OMEA) takes nominations from its members for its “Outstanding Administrator Award.” The award is presented at the annual conference banquet in January. 

    Bruce Schmidt OMEA Award

    This past fall, Sam Barlow High School (SBHS) band director Paul Nicholas took it upon himself to ask six people to join him in writing nomination letters for Principal Bruce Schmidt. The list of supporters for the award included current and retired educators, parents, volunteers, and students. All were eager to write a  letter as they have worked with Bruce in various capacities and all know his level of passion for the SBHS music programs. In early January, the District learned that Principal Schmidt had been named the 2020 OMEA Outstanding Administrator!

    The OMEA’s annual awards banquet was held on January 18 at the Graduate Eugene Hotel and Convention Center in Eugene, Oregon. Principal Schmidt and his family, SBHS Band Director Paul Nicholas, SBHS Choir Director Amber Schroeder, and hundreds of music educators from around the state attended. The event took place at the Graduate Eugene Hotel and Convention Center in Eugene, Oregon.

    Congratulations Principal Schmidt and thank you for the work you do to support SBH’s student body, staff, and families. This recognition was well-earned!

  • ASPIRE Volunteers

    ASPIRE is a program that connects community volunteers with students to both mentor and assist them in choosing post high school options as well as completing applications for college and scholarships. Our ASPIRE Program has been instrumental in helping students succeed after high school by showing them the various options available to them.  We are looking for more volunteers to become part of the ASPIRE Program and help in our College and Career Center. For more information, view this Video Clip. If you are interested, please contact Patty Neuenschwander in the College and Career Center at 503.258.4890.

  • Student of the Month

    As part of our student recognition program we send PRIDE Notes (a post card) home to students who have demonstrated Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence. Each month we then compile a list of students, by grade level, and generate a ballot for staff to vote both a male and female student to become a Student of the Month. In order to spotlight our best and brightest, students receive a certificate, their picture is hung in a main hall for the month, and they get a PRIDE T-shirt.
