Sisters Rodeo

To the Editor:

Sisters Rodeo again demonstrated why it is a favorite PRCA rodeo for both contestants and fans. With a mostly new board of directors and the leadership of President Patty Cordoni, this production ran smoothly and  appeared seamless to the fans in the stands.

Cordoni even brought the Buffalo Soldiers of Seattle to the parade and the Grand Entry after seeing them at another Rodeo. This was a tribute to American history, which was so appreciated by fans.

The whole week of rodeo was so inspiring, especially after many long-serving board members stepped aside, allowing a new group of leadership and a surge in membership to continue making this truly The Biggest Little Show in the World.

I doff my cowboy hat to the committee and the members who have carried on the tradition of Sisters Rodeo in such grand style. Both Glenn Miller and John Leavitt would be proud. I certainly am.

From the superintendent

To the Editor:

I wanted to give an update from our June Board Meeting and celebrate the end of another successful year.

We started with a presentation from a group of our students who spent three days in Seattle observing and doing research at the Fred Hutch Cancer Center. This amazing, hands-on learning field trip, that which been supported for the past decade, again excited and inspired the students who were able to attend.

Although we were down six students from last month, enrollment continues to be strong, as we have been above 1,160 students as a district for the past five months.

The Sisters School Board voted to approve the budget as approved by the Budget Committee. We are so thankful for our community and it’s continued support of the Local Option Levy that accounts for approximately 10 percent of our annual operating budget. Thank you again Sisters Country voters!

Work continues on the new elementary school. As we enter the summer, the second floor is going up. The school will continue to take it shape as the construction continues this summer. To view the plans and the most current video of the work on the site visit: http://ssd6.org/schoolboard/2021bond/.

A big congratulations to the class of 2023 that celebrated their graduation on Friday night. We all congratulate you and look forward to hear of the next steps in your journeys.

Finally, thank you to all staff for the work they do to support our students and make all of these opportunities happen!

Curt Scholl

Superintendent
