MSHS ProStart – A Semester Treat

A wonderful treat capped a fantastic semester!

After finishing our annual staff luncheon, MSHS ProStart students arrived with a wonderful surprise. With over one-hundred hand-made dessert in tow, staff members were treated to a strawberry concoction that was served with class.

Special thanks to our students and their incredible teacher, Claudia Couch, for the thoughtful treats!

Poetry Out Loud

What an opportunity!

Led by the energy and vision of Mt. Spokane High School English staff, students were able to experience the power of Poetry Out Loud this winter. A national program, Poetry Out Loud affords high school students the opportunity to learn and recite poems with specific criteria for performance. Last week, after numerous classroom competitions, the top 16 Mt. Spokane High School students competed for the right to represent MSHS at the next round of competition.

With a theatre brimming with energy, each of the 16 student finalists recited two poems at our first school competition held in the evening. When the judging ended, sophomore Taylor Bastian was awarded first place, and will continue to represent Mt. Spokane High School going forward. Congratulations, Taylor!

480 Mt. Spokane High School students engaged Poetry Out Loud this year through their English classes. (This is an increase from 180 the year before – WOW!) Special thanks to our building coordinator, Carolyn Saccomanno, for her passion and hard work. Additionally, staff members Susan Dunfield, Martha Rough and Bruce Holbert were all supportive keys to make Poetry Out Loud a new, successful tradition at Mt. Spokane!
