Amboy Middle School gets pumped for 'Socktober' with an assembly

Students and staff at Amboy Middle School kicked off their annual 'Socktober' donation drive event at a school-wide assembly on Wednesday that featured plenty of funky socks and a friendly competition between the individual grade levels. Check out the highlights from the assembly here!

Focus on facilities

Levy-funded maintenance projects preserve assets at Battle Ground schools 

Maintenance crews worked hard over the summer making improvements and scheduled maintenance repairs at Battle Ground Public Schools all throughout the district. Visit our website for a list of some of the more notable projects that were completed this summer, which are largely funded thanks to levy dollars.

Get to know Kara Kent, Glenwood/Laurin's new assistant principal

Kara Kent is a new assistant principal at both Glenwood Heights Primary and Laurin Middle School. The two schools share a campus, and Kara is splitting her time evenly between the schools. Kent, who was an eighth grade English language arts and history teacher at CAM Academy last year, takes over the AP job at Glenwood from Damen Hermens (now at Tukes Valley Middle School).

We asked Kara to tell us some things that people might not know about her. Check out her answers to get to know a little more about your new assistant principal!

Socktober has arrived for Amboy Middle School students and staff

Students and staff at Amboy Middle School are teaming up to collect socks all throughout October to be donated to the Family and Community Resource Center (FCRC).

If the Amboy campus meets their goal of collecting 5,000+ pairs of socks, a handful of lucky students will get to drench Principal Nick Krause with a bucket of water at a future assembly. Stay tuned! In the meantime, you can see more photos from the assembly on our Facebook page
