State Education Funding
Over the past eight years as a school administrator I have been faced with making hard decisions and reductions in staffing and resource allocation. Yet again our legislators are proposing a state budget that would grossly under fund education, ultimately resulting in severe cuts in our school programs. You have the ability and opportunity to make a difference by sending our local state legislators an email and letting them know how important education is to our young adults and to our community. Please Contact Your Legislator.
Pennies for Patients April 6-10
April 6-10, Barlow Key Club will be conducting the Annual Pennies For Patients Campaign to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please take a few minutes to view this inspiring LLS video which discusses where funds go. https://vimeo.com/54668275
This year we will have the class competition during 4th period. Students, please bring any donations to your 4th period class. The class that brings in the most money will receive an Olive Garden lunch party. The second and third place classes will receive doughnut parties. There is also an online donation feature this year where students/staff/parents/community members can donate. If you want to contribute to a specific teacher's class, first click on "See the School Sam Barlow High School", and from there a teacher's weblink can be selected.  Click here to donate online
Barlow Dress Code
Over the past several weeks, a committee of Barlow students and staff have been working to revise our dress code in order to make it easier to understand and to modernize the requirements. Over 50 students and 12 staff members have been involved in this process and the final products were shared with students at our Winter Recognition Assembly.  To see examples of great spring fashion that meet our dress code requirements select, Think About Spring Fashion.  To download our dress code policy select Dress Code Policy.

National Speech and Debate Qualifying Tournament
Barlow students competed at the National Speech and Debate tournament on March 19th and 20th. All of our students competed hard with four qualifying to go to the national tournament in June. Keenan Goodman and Ben Brinkman qualified in Policy Debate, Kayla Heston in Original Oratory, and Annalee Knock double qualified in Humorous and Dramatic Interpretation and in Original Oratory. This is an awesome showing for our team and a big congratulations is deserved. Also, our very own Mikayla Heston was featured in a KATU interview based on her performance at the competition.

National Cheerleading Competition
The Sam Barlow High School Cheer Team traveled to Anaheim on Friday, March 20th, to participate at the National Cheerleading Competition. They did a phenomenal job, placing ninth in the nation. They have all worked very hard, and being able to say that you are ninth in the nation is something they should all be proud of.

State Wrestling Championships
Sam Barlow High School's Chandler Michael won the 6A 145 lb. classification at the OSAA State Wrestling meet at Veteran's Memorial Coliseum on Feb. 27-28. In the finals, Chandler got a takedown with 10 seconds left to win the 145-lb title, 5-4, over Sunset's Spencer Stokes. Awesome job, Chandler! Joseph Knight was also a state placer taking 4th place at 138 pounds and Zephraim Childs placed third at 170 pounds. It was a great state tournament for the Barlow Bruins.

Student of the Month
As part of our student recognition program we send PRIDE Notes (a post card) home to students who have demonstrated Purpose, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence. Each month we then compile a list of students, by grade level, and generate a ballot for staff to vote on a male and female student to become a Student of the Month. Along with receiving a certificate, the student's picture is hung in a main hall for the month so everyone can see our best and brightest. To see the list of students who have earned this honor, select Student of the Month.

Online Homework Support
If your student could benefit from some extra tutoring after hours in: math, language arts, social studies, or Spanish as a foreign language, Multnomah County Library offers students live tutor assistance online via their Live Homework Help system.
This service is available from 2:00PM to 10:00PM daily in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. Tutors can even proofread writing assignments. Students do need to have a Multnomah County Library card to use this service, but those can be easily obtained from any Multnomah County Library Branch or online. Go to: Get a Library Card Online.
