Welcome Back to the 2016-2017 School Year!

It goes without saying that this will be another busy year! 2016-2017 will be a year of more courses for high school students and hopefully more opportunities to get involved.

Please be sure to communicate openly with your teachers, parents, and coaches about any academic issues you are struggling with. It is also important for you to communicate any personal challenges you may be encountering, so feel free to make an appointment with Ms. Jensen or Mr. Reeser or another trusted adult to share those challenges with.

We all look forward to a great year here at Santiam Jr/Sr High School!

Check back here throughout the year for important information on college/career planning!
