Principal Notes for 5/4/11
The College of Western Idaho introduced a program new to Idaho to help save for the cost of a college education at their institute. From a recent e-mail correspondence, “The scholarship, called ‘CWIDeal Boost,’ will provide matching funds from the College of Western Idaho – up to $500 per semester or $1,500 per year – to qualifying students.” To qualify, students must meet certain financial and enrollment criteria and apply for federal financial aid. Specific program details can be found at

Principal Notes for 5/11/15
Last Monday night I had the pleasure of attending the PAWS Pal reveal party. What a great time! I continue to be amazed by the number of people who do not have a child in our school yet “adopt” one for our PAWS Pal program. If you are one of those people, thank you so much for your interest in our students. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!!
Congratulations to the local junior high track teams!! The Tri-Valley boys placed first at the conference championship and the Council boys placed second. On the girls’ side of the meet, Council placed first and Tri-Valley placed second.
Congratulations also go out to our high school track team! In particular, we had five students qualify for the state meet being held this weekend at Middleton High School. Teddy Ertel qualified in the 3200m, Chip Mitchell in the 1600m, Teagan Azbill in the high jump, Carly Hansen in the 800m, and Jack Hansen in the 100m, 400m, and long jump. We wish the best of luck to these competitors!
As a reminder, this Friday is the last Friday teachers will be available to assist students before the end of the year. Teachers are also available before and after school by appointment. If your child is behind, please have them contact his or her teacher.
Congratulations go to this year’s valedictorian and salutatorian! Bret Kindall is this year’s valedictorian, and Ryan Kindall is the salutatorian. Commencement is Saturday, May 16 at 8:00 in the gym.
Cambridge High School is proud to announce this year’s valedictorian and salutatorian. Valedictorian honors go to Bret Kindall, son of Charley and Kerry Kindall. Salutatorian honors go to Ryan Kindall, son of Jason and Dusti Kindall. Students will be honored at Cambridge High School Commencement exercises to be held Saturday, May 16 at 8:00 pm in the high school gymnasium.
Principal Notes for 5/19/14
We’ve made it through another year! Congratulations to our graduating seniors, and we wish them all the best as they begin their life “on their own.” I hope each of them understands that there are many people in our small community who will keep them in their hearts for many years to come.
The graduation ceremony was bittersweet. Cindy Jones was recognized with the district’s Distinguished Service Award. Cindy has spent roughly twenty-five years serving our district in the roles of board member, substitute teacher, and paraprofessional. In the past sixteen years as she served as an aid in the special education room, Cindy made connections with students and helped many of them through high school to graduation. Her retirement is bittersweet because she will be greatly missed as someone who cares deeply for students and colleagues, and at the same time, we are happy for her as she enters into a greatly deserved retirement.
Our activities will continue into the summer. A volleyball camp is scheduled for June 1 and 2. We will have students leaving for Moscow for the state FFA Career Development Events on June 2 and will return June 5. We wish these students the best of luck.
As we enter into a new summer, I hope each of you, who still have children at home, will take some time to really enjoy their company. They will be out of the house before you know it!!
