As you may have noticed, we have been working on our website for the past several months but recently a few major changes have been made that I want to share with you. First, we have provided a welcome video that provides a bird’s eye view of our school district’s facilities. We are especially excited to provide you with the first glimpse of the Moscow School District Community Play Fields. Second, on the top black bar of this home page, you will find a tab named, “Community Interest”. This is where you can find out about all of the non-profit community events that pertain to our students and families. At the start of the second semester this will take the place of all of the flyers that have been sent home monthly with your elementary children and placed on bulletin boards at the secondary schools. Third, please notice that we have new tutorials for parents and students who are using PowerSchool. These tutorials will allow you to understand and use the additional options that are now available in PowerSchool. This will be added help in communication between home and school. Finally, this blog in itself is a new feature. As superintendent, I plan on providing an update on different events and issues that are occurring in your school district each week through this blog. The blog is meant to be informative of topics that may impact our students or other stakeholders. I hope you will enjoy these changes and look forward to communicating with you through this blog on a weekly basis.

Here is an update on MHS staff members Mark Shipley and Ken Berger’s hike of the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier in 50 hours this past July in their hopes to raise money to help send our 6th grade students to the McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS). This hike is a 92 mile, 22,000 foot elevation, knee-destroying hike.
Update: Ken Berger and his son, Isaac, and myself walked around MOST of Mt. Rainier this summer as fast as we could…64 miles out of 92 miles total in 32 hours! We all agree the trek was one of the hardest physical endeavors we have ever attempted. Many thanks to all who have supported us in this journey and all who have contributed time, well-wishes, and/or contributions to our cause…the McCall Outdoor Science School. To date, we have raised around $3000 for MOSS! WOW! We’re already planning our next trip next summer!
Thanks again, everyone.
Mark Shipley, Ken Berger, and Isaac Berger
That’s it. Thanks for supporting us and wishing us luck (You can still donate for this cause if you would like by sending a check to the Moscow School District C/O MOSS Camp Donation, 650 N. Cleveland, Moscow, ID 83843).
