Superintendent Message

Kevin Purnell,
ASD Superintendent

            As the seasons change and bring new life outside, so it seems the same thing occurs on the campus of Adrian High School. The girl’s basketball team capped their season off by advancing to the second round of the state playoffs before falling to the back to back undefeated state champion girls from St. Paul. Congratulations to Cole Kennedy-Gooch for his 2nd Place finish at the State Wrestling Tournament in Portland. Congratulation also to James Ellsworth for advancing to the OSAA State Solo event in the trumpet solo division and to Illana Bowen for being first alternate for the soprano vocal division. As the winter activities begin to fade, and the anticipation of the spring activities begins to build the school is still full of life. The boys and girls track teams began competition last Friday, while the girls opened up the softball season with a victory over Greenleaf.  Aside from the field of athletics, other activities to mark on your calendar include the FFA State Convention and the FFA Banquet, and the drama production of ‘Seussical the Musical’. Spring Break is upon us and when we return the seniors will have two short months until graduation. This is not a time to cruise it is a time to finish strong!

            I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all of the parents who completed our online survey. The staff/leadership takes your input very seriously and we appreciate your feedback. The survey is part of the accreditation process that we are going through this week with a visiting team from AdvancEd. We look forward to sharing the results of the review in our next newsletter.

 We are currently seeking host families for the 2019-2020 school year. Our international students have been an integral part of our Adrian community for more than 15 years now and if you would like to join in on that experience there are a couple of options. You can be a part-time host family, allowing students living in the dorm to share your home one weekend per month or you can choose to host a student full-time for the 2019-2020 school year. If you are interested, contact Mrs. Allison or Mr. Purnell in the high school office (541-372-2335).
