It is our sincerest hope that this year will be filled with positive energy, rich learning experiences, and strong connections between students, families, and our dedicated staff.

As we step into this academic year, we are committed to fostering an environment where each student can thrive both personally and academically. This is a pivotal time in your lives, where the lessons you learn and the choices you make will lay the foundation for your future. Here are a few key points to help you plan for a successful year and beyond:

  1. Engage Fully: Participate in your classes, join clubs or sports, and make the most of all the opportunities that Pendleton High School has to offer. There is so much to discover and enjoy!
  2. Set Goals: Take some time to think about your aspirations. What do you hope to achieve this year? Setting clear and achievable goals can be a motivating guide throughout the year.
  3. Communicate: If you need help or have questions, reach out to your teachers, counselors, or any member of our staff. We are here to support you, and open communication is key.
  4. Stay Organized: With multiple subjects and extracurricular activities, staying organized will help you manage your time and reduce stress.
  5. Plan for the Future: Whether it’s considering college, vocational training, or another path, start exploring your interests and options now. Our ASPIRE team is here to help you navigate these important decisions.
