Dear Forks’ Community Members, March 30, 2023
It is hard to believe that Spring Break is next week. In visiting our buildings, I know that both our staff and students are ready for a break. Now let’s hope that the weather cooperates and brings us some sunshine.
I continue to be amazed at our community and the outreach of support our Forks provides for our students and their futures. Several weekends ago, the Quillayute Valley Scholarship Auction (59 th Annual) was held in the Forks High School Commons. I would like to personally thank our many volunteers who support this event. The Senior Class of 2023 did an amazing job in collecting items and working the auction with volunteers for two days. Over $167,000 was raised in this short time. Every senior graduate of Forks High School will have an opportunity to access scholarship funds twice in their lifetime.
A Career Fair was held this week at the Forks Elementary School Year where all students were exposed to a variety of careers that are represented in our community. Guest speakers worked directly with each grade level to talk about specific information about their careers, such as what they actually do on the job to what type of school or training is required. On Friday, March 31 st all FES students will pledge a commitment to finishing high school. As a school district one of our main goals is to make sure our students are college and/or career ready when they receive their diploma.
We have worked diligently this year to replace our Spartan Stadium. The QVSD Board of Directors has made the replacement a priority so that our parents, grandparents and community members have a safe and dry place to watch school events. We are please to announce that the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Friday, April 14 at 5:00 p.m. Join us for this long-awaited event. Our Senior Class of 2023 will be selling food and beverages. We will honor our committee members who helped with the vision of the stadium, as well as our coaching staff (paid and volunteer) and the community timber industry!
Please have a safe and healthy Spring Break and see you soon,
Diana Reaume, Superintendent
