2023 - 2024 Student Registration Message
Online Registration For the 2023 - 2024 school year, the Mt. Angel School district will be moving from our old student information system to PowerSchool. Due to the nature of this change we will NOT be holding our normal "spring registration". Instead, we will be opening student registration in August with multiple "in-person" registration opportunities. As in past years the process will be online AND families are welcome to begin the process either online or in person. In the coming months information will be sent out to existing families with information on how the process will work along with important dates and times. Flyers will also be distributed both via ParentSquare and the district website regarding when registration will officially open and when the in-person opportunities will take place. As has been past practice, all families will be required to attend the in-person registration to complete the registration process. Thank you for your patience and understanding in the very large undertaking.

Trojan Times for April and May
Family Newsletter | April and May 20 23 Principal's Message Dear JFK families, It’s very hard to believe that it's the middle of May and we only have 11 days left with our seniors and 18 days left with the rest of our students. Where h as the year gone! I’d like to begin this message with a shout out to all of the musicians that participated in the outdoor evening concert on May 18th at MAMS. It was a wonderful event that highlighted the talent and skills of students from St. Mary’s through JFK with each group playing three to four selections. A special thank you to JFK student, Juan Olazaran Aguila, for starting the evening with a couple of piano solos. Typically, the month of May is a busy one and this year is no different. Some of our students are wrapping up Advanced Placement (AP) testing while others, our junior students, are preparing to take the Math SBAC exams beginning this Tuesday morning. With only 11 days remaining for our seniors we are working hard to ensure all of them will graduate this year. For those students who are at risk of not graduating, you should have already heard from your student's teacher, either by phone or Parent Square about what your student needs to do and what they, the teacher, will do to support them. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your students' teachers. I would also like to share how grateful we are as a district to you for passing the Bond to ensure our students will be safe, warm and dry for years to come. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough, but from the very bottom of my heart, thank you! What's Happening at JFK Spring Sports What a Spring it’s been for all JFK sports. Both our boys and girls track and field teams were crowned district champions this past Saturday. Our girls softball repeated as district champions, in fact this is the 7th year in a row that they have won that title. Our boys baseball team has also repeated as district champions for 5 years in a row. Our boys baseball team is the last team in Oregon to remain undefeated. Our boys and girls begin their postseason play this Wednesday with home games. Our girls begin postseason play with a #3 OSAA ranking, where our boys begin with a #1 ranking. Come out and watch one or both, if you can. Game times are 4:30 pm. The State Track & Field Championships begin this Thursday at Hayward Field in Eugene and will continue through Friday. Our student athletes will begin around 11:00 am and finish around 5:00 pm on Thursday. They will return Friday with a 3:00 pm start and ending around 9:30 pm. Come on down to Eugene, if you can to support our Track and Field athletes. You’ve heard me say this before, but I’m going to change it up a bit, it’s just plain great to be a Trojan. Good luck to all of the Trojan student athletes. Spotlight LEAD Student of the Month for April I’m proud to announce the LEADS student of the month for April is Dillen Weber. Dillen is probably the most driven person I’ve ever been around. Dillen’s story begins with a not so successful 9th grade year where he attended online school and didn’t earn any credits, putting him severely at risk of not graduating on time. I remember speaking with Dillen towards the end of his Sophomore year about attending the Willamette Career Academy’s health services program as he wanted to become a nurse after graduating from high school, but due to him not being on-track to graduate, he needed to spend all of his attention on credit recovery to get him back on track to graduate. With some guidance from Ms. Kuhns and myself, Dillen hunkered down his Junior year and began recovery credits that he had missed during his freshman year and this continued throughout this year, all while he held down a part-time job at Roths. All of Dillen’s hard work has certainly paid off with him set to graduate next month and then join the Navy, where he’s scheduled to begin boot camp on July 19th. Dillen will be trained as a machinist, but will continue his education in the Navy to become a nurse. We are super proud of you Dillen and wish him nothing but the best as he closes this chapter and begins another. Please join me in congratulating Dillen. LEAD Student of the Month for May Please join me in congratulating Zach Talbot for being chosen the LEADS Student of the Month for May. Zach is a three sport athlete, playing football, wrestling and baseball and maintaining a GPA that puts him in the top half of his class. Some of the words that staff have used to describe Zach are: kind, caring, trustworthy, thoughtful, positive, and hardworking. I would also like to add a person with excellent character and one with a ton of integrity. During his early years of high school, this young man was diagnosed with severe hearing loss that would have set most people back, but not him. He persevered and adjusted without any impact to his learning or grades. His next chapter includes enrolling at Chemeketa to become a Registered Nurse. Congratulations Zach on being chosen the LEADS student of the month for May UPCOMING EVENTS May 23: Math SBAC exams begin for our Junior Students May 24: Postseason play begins for softball and baseball May 25: Track & Field State Championships begin at Hayward Field in Eugene May 26: Track & Field State Championships wrap up at Hayward Field in Eugene May 29: Memorial Day - NO SCHOOL June 5 & 6: Final Exams for Seniors June 9: Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2023 June 15: Last day of school for 9th through 11th grade students (1/2 day) MENTAL HEALTH All students should feel safe at school and in their communities. Mt. Angel School District and John F. Kennedy High School are committed to building a strong, positive, supportive culture for students to learn and grow. If you have a specific concern or incident to report that threatens student safety and security, you may report it directly to our principal, Dale Pedersen, or use the anonymous tip line, Safe Oregon, at www.safeoregon.com . All concerns and tips are confidential and will be investigated and addressed according to district policy and procedures.
