Welcome to Black Butte High School for the 2017-2018 School Year!
Black Butte High School
Welcome New Principal
The New School Year…
Where did the summer go? Hard to believe school has started and we are already in October. The new school year has brought some changes to Black Butte. We ended last year with 65 students. We started this school year with 102 students. Our new students are a nice mix of incoming freshmen and transfer students.
Along with new students, we have the following new staff members:
Jerry Coulson – Math
Jeannie Coulson - Business
Adam Gonzales – Spanish
Jessica Brunett – PE/Health
Brad Cox – Social Studies
Jannette Van Patten - Counselor
Josue Palacios – Instructional Coach
Parents have an important opportunity and duty to meet our new staff by attending Parent/Teacher Conferences on October 8th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm and on October 9th from 8:00 – 11:00. Communication between schools and families is key to student success. We invite and encourage all parents to attend and bring their sons or daughters. The best news of all is snacks will be provided!
One of the strategies to improve our graduation rate is community service and involvement. We have a student advisory group formed to plan and implement community service and involvement projects. Several opportunities are being planned to allow our students an opportunity to give back to the community and create a connection to our community.
