Good evening Tomahawks!  


This is an exciting week for the Tomahawks.  We host a convocation on Thursday, October 10th with Purdue University.  I am excited to share Scott Tingle (Mechanical Engineering BS ‘87/MS ’88) and Mark Polansky (Aeronautics and Astronautics BS ’& MS ‘78) will be visiting our school to host an assembly for Battle Ground’s 6-8th grade students. 

Mr. Tingle and Mr. Polansky will arrive at 9:15 a.m., with a presentation start time of 9:25 a.m., running until 10:25 a.m.   

Here is the website you can visit for a bit of background information and bio.  This will assist in the preparation of any classroom assignments and/or introductory remarks to bring them onto the stage: https://www.purdue.edu/space/astronauts.php.

Congratulations to our 7th-grade band students for an outstanding performance this past Friday!  A huge thanks go out to Mr. Hopkins and Ms. Campbell for directing such a fine performance! 


Parents, you should have had a form brought home by your student explaining how you could contribute, if you desire, to help us.  The form also indicates a shirt size for your child. There is no cost for Kindness Day or the activities, but donations to keep it going are welcome! https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7VyByPwRQiTa1UwWllGZE1EUVRad1RkX2xwclBZSXNBVmIw/view?usp=sharing
