Joaquin Patraca

Quin joined the U.S. Naval North Battalion Sea Cadets. Since he wants to be a Marine, he thought this would be good. He has participated in a few monthly trainings, car washes, 4th of July parade and this 9 day training at Camp Rilea. The training was a basic recruit training.

The Naval Sea Cadet Corps and Navy League Cadet Corps offer a nautically oriented training program for young Americans, ages 10 through 18. The program allows young people to sample military life with no obligation to join any branch of the armed forces. Through organization and cooperation with the Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps, the program seeks to encourage and aid American youth to develop an interest and skill in basic seamanship and in its naval adaptations, to train them in seagoing skills, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred values in a drug, gang and alcohol-free lifestyle.

Carmen Cleveland-Barrera is the 2019 State Shot-put CHAMPION!!!

Congratulations Carmen, we are so proud of you!

College in High School

We have 22 high school juniors and seniors enrolled in our "College in the High School" programs.

Fall term, English, Science, and Calculus were offered. Eight students took two of the three courses offered and two students took all three. They are earning college credit through Central Washington University.

We will soon be offering a fourth course, Political Science. We will continue to seek other courses to offer in the coming years. This is a great opportunity for students who want to earn college credit, but are not attending Running Start.

Each week throughout the school year, the WIAA and Wendy's recognize varsity athletes, from each of the six classifications, who exhibited outstanding performances the previous week (based on nominations). The weekly deadline is the Tuesday before at 12:00 PM. All varsity level students in good academic standing at their schools are eligible to receive the WIAA/Wendy's Athlete of the Week Award. Students may win the award once during any given academic year. Each winner receives a letter of recognition from the WIAA Executive Director, a commemorative WIAA/Wendy's Athlete of the Week promotional item, and a certificate. Winners are announced weekly on the WIAA website and on social media.

The junior, Carmen Cleveland-Barrera, has been dominating the 2B classification in shot put, adding a second place at the Activators Classic Meet at W. F. West. The event included schools from all classifications, and her mark broke the school’s record of 31 years with a throw of 39’8.5”.
