Juniors and Seniors!  Boise State University will be here on Tuesday, September 24th at 8 am to discuss programs, college life, tuition and more. If you would like to see what they have to offer, please put your name on the sign-up sheet located in the counseling office. For more information, please see Mrs. Ballenger.




  • The Agoge After School will be starting up again on Mon Oct 7th. This year's schedule and offerings will be slightly different then previous years. For starters, both the academic and enrichment labs will be one hour long and we will be offering credit recovery in all core subjects. If you're an upperclassmen and need to make up credits in order to graduate on time (and you don't want to go to summer school), then please join us.
  • We will also have tutors here to help you with your assignments and to answer any questions. Additionally, due to the shortage of drivers, busing will be available only to those who live in the Blanchard areas. I'm taking registration now so feel free to download the attached form and have your student drop it off at their earliest convenience. 
  • Lastly, we will be running the Lamanna Resource Center again this year in order to provide meals for students and their siblings on the weekends and breaks. If you would like to take advantage of this free program, please fill out the form. The form is strictly so that I know the ages of the students participating and the number of siblings so that I can pack the meals accordingly. No information is shared with anyone outside of my office, including the district. 
  • One last thing... The Music Conservatory of Sandpoint and I would like to bring back the Introduction to Orchestra program again this year but can't unless I can get at least 4 students to commit to the program. What that means is that the student is agreeing to come to the lab twice a week for the entirety of the school year. If you're interested in learning the violin, viola or cello and do not have plans to play any sports or participate in the annual drama club production, then please consider taking this free class (we even supply the instruments!). Contact Cherie Coldwell or return the attached registration form ASAP so that I can get an accurate head count.  I look forward to seeing you after school!


All late start students and teacher aides who arrive early must report to the library or a teacher's classroom. If they have nothing to do during class must either stay in class or report to the library. You are not to stay on the orange couch or the senior bench.

All Things Senior!  Find the right path after high school graduation.  Visit 30 different college and military reps.  Learn about employment options.  September 25th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Sandpoint High School.  This event is sponsored by North Idaho Higher Education.

It's Life Long!



A Spartan, above all, is fierce; because for us failure is not an option.

Never will we settle for less than our best; and we choose to exceed all expectations.

We, as Spartans, represent our community by being leaders and not followers, striving for success, and working together for the greater good for our community.

It is our privilege to spread Spartan Pride throughout our community and we are proud to uphold this duty.

We will be efficient in our duties and we are willing to go the extra mile to be a successful Spartan.

We, as Spartans, are not arrogant, we are not rude.

A Spartan is a positive role model in their school and community.

Each day we come to school with an eagerness to learn and we leave with the satisfaction of our accomplishments.

We, as Spartans, are a school made up of individuals who come together to share Spartan Pride and Academic Success every day.

We, as Spartans, treat everyone with kindness and encourage acceptance.

We are Spartans and

We define what a Spartan is by what we stand for,

What we strive for,

And what we fight for.

We are Spartans.
