June 12-13, concerts planned, and other year-end news:
The Memorial Day weekend has sounded the bell lap on the long run that was the 2013-14 school year. Actually, teachers, parents and even students would probably agree that the year went by pretty quickly.
To help make sure you don’t miss anything for the last two weeks of the year, here is our June Is Just About Here round-up of school notes of note:
n Remember the snow and ice in February? Those two lost school days have been added back.
The Hood River County School District announced in late April that it will be making up the two lost instructional days that were canceled due to inclement weather earlier this year. The school district was closed on Friday, Feb. 7, and on Monday, Feb. 10, due to inclement weather. The school calendar preserved two days for emergency closure days: Thursday, June 12, and Friday, June 13 (yes, students, Friday the 13th). Schools will be open and operate on both days.
n On June 3, the music department at HRVHS gives its Farewell Concert, 7-9 p.m. in Bowe Theatre.
n June 4 — Seniors’ last day
n Commencement events, aka graduation ceremonies, take place June 6 at HRVHS at 7 p.m. and June 7 at Horizon Christian School, 2 p.m.
n Hood River Middle School holds its band concert on June 3 and choir concert on June 5, both at 7 p.m.
Much goes on in schools during the summer, including:
n Summer meals program — weekdays June 30-July 22 at Mid Valley Elementary cafeteria, 3686 David Drive, Odell. There is no fee or registration; just show up and eat. The service is made possible by a grant from the United States Department of Agriculture.
