Principal's Letter

July 27, 2010

Dear Students and Parents,

Welcome to the 2010-2011 school year at Priest River Lamanna High School. We hope you will browse through our pages to learn more about what makes up Priest River Lamanna High Spartan Pride and what services we offer for our student body. A significant amount of information has been posted, and we hope you will find answers and forms of communications to any of your questions.

Our students, faculty, support staff, and administration strive to create a positive school climate by demonstrating mutual respect for everyone that enters our building. PRLHS has a talented staff that cares deeply about students and student learning. Our well-trained and dedicated teaching and support staff of 50 individuals value our students as our greatest resource. Priest River Lamanna High School supports the West Bonner County School District’s mission:

The mission of School District #83 is threefold:
  1. To assist ALL students in achieving their full potential as individuals,
  2. To create a partnership which strives to include ALL students, parents and community members,
  3. To cultivate a safe, nurturing environment that promotes:
    • Mastery of essential learning
    • Individual responsibility for life choices
    • Respect for one another
    • Learning as a life-long process

“Dedication, Commitment, Renewal and New Beginnings” is the theme at Priest River Lamanna High School. This theme reminds our students to Make Good Choices Academically & Socially; To Never Give Up on Themselves and Begin Again; Be Involved in their Learning & School Culture; and To Be There for Each Other. Students are constantly encouraged to make educated decisions that will have a positive impact on their future. Whether in the classroom, on the sport fields, through participation in one of our co-curricular activities, student organizations or community based activities; every student is encouraged to get involved and challenge themselves. Students are asked to explore personal interest and to get involved at school. By making good choices and setting goals in their learning and in their personal lives, our students will succeed and excel both in the classroom and in their extra-curricular activities.

PRLHS is a community based high school. We value the support of our parents, community members and local businesses. We know that parent and community support is vital and key component to student success; so please take time to visit our school and browse our school website. Parents, also take time to review our student handbook and talk to your student often about his/her course schedule, classes and assignments. We recognize that our students and staff are ambassadors of Priest River and the surrounding communities that make up West Bonner County School District and we carry that honor with Spartan pride and responsibility.

Our goal of education is to promote our students’ intellectual and social development and growth and strive toward success. I and the entire administrative staff and faculty welcome your input and appreciate your continuing support and commitment in providing the best educational experience for our students. Please don’t hesitate to be involved and share in that Priest River Lamanna High School Spartan Pride.
