Why do we NEED this building bond? We have 3 schools within our campus that all have different needs. The focus of this project from the beginning has revolved around three components; safety, space, and infrastructure. Each of these components were taken into consideration for each individual school (elem., MS, and HS). This post will focus on space. -The current TF campus was not built to accommodate the increasing student population of approximately 740 students (avg. rate of 6% each year). This results in overcrowded classrooms throughout the K-12 District, negatively impacting the educational experience. -The existing blueprint for the HS is not designed for the current student population, resulting in overcrowded and unsafe hallways during peak traffic times. -The District campus contains three different schools (elem, MS, HS) that are forced to share spaces, resulting in course offerings being cut and less educational opportunities for K-12 students. -To temporarily address the lack of space, portable classrooms will be used. The result is an inadequate space/environment for teaching and learning. To learn more please check out the District website http://threeforksmt.apptegy.us/o/three-forks-schools. If you have questions you can contact the school office at 285-6830, or by emailing Superintendent Jeff Elliott at firstname.lastname@example.org
Student of the quarter nominations: Hadley Fallang, Mikayla Lear, Zaida Bertrand, Cahal McDonald, Kate’s Flaglet, Katie Kotter, Peyton Page, Jayden Woodland Winners: Mikayla Lear & Katie Kotter Perfect Attendance: Dryden Frisinger, Cherish Allen, Tommi Kirwan, Lance Demaray, Ethan Eyman, Abbey Tallman, Cass Violett, Rhett Violett, Wyatt Bodenheimer, Kris Zeiger, Cassie Whitcome, Alexandria Pierce, Hannah Rumelhart
Just a reminder that there will be a Public Facilities Committee Meeting this afternoon on January 29th at 4:30 p.m. in the High School Library. All community members are welcome to attend.
The Speech & Drama team competed at the divisional tournament on Saturday, placing as champion in Speech with a score of 131-129, remaining undefeated in Class B Speech for the season going into the state tournament, by defeating the team who holds a 35 state championship streak. The team qualified 36 students for the state tournament, which is the most that Three Forks has qualified in the past 10 years. Kalli Miller & Ally Kamps won individual championships. Finn Hanson, Kevin Richards, Lexi Welch, and Hannah Rumelhart placed as runners-up. Also placing in the top four were Dean Buchholz, Aden Lehr, Hannah Wilson, Grace Donnelly, Bailey Partain, Dru Bolender, Lilly Lindquist, Michael Boyd, and Ethan Heagar.
You’re invited! If you’ve been wondering why we are looking to renovate and improve our schools, we invite you to come to the next Public Facilities Committee Meeting. This meeting will take place on January 29 at 4:30 p.m. in the High School Library. Call us at 285-6830 if you can’t attend and would like more information about the potential bond.
Three Forks School District has put together a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) directed towards the upcoming spring bond election. We will share the answers to these questions in the weeks leading up to the May 5th election date. If clarification is needed for any of these postings, please feel free to reach out to the District Office @ 285-6830. *Why does the Three Forks School District NEED this building bond? We have 3 schools within our campus that all have different needs. The focus of this project from the beginning has revolved around three components; safety, space, and infrastructure. Each of these components were taken into consideration for each individual school (elem., MS, and HS). Below is a listing of safety items that would be addressed through the passing of the spring bond. -The electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems are outdated and failing throughout many portions of the campus. -Fire suppression systems do NOT exist throughout the entire campus, thus creating a major safety concern that needs to be addressed. -Three Forks High School was built in 1952 and is currently obsolete, requiring desperate improvements. -To improve security and keep our students and staff safe, campus entrances would be reconfigured so that all traffic will funnel through the controlled offices during the school day. -The school bus loading/unloading zone will be relocated to a single (bus-only) lane to the north of campus. This will be a controlled, safe area for students to board/un-board buses. -The parent drop off area for elementary students will be relocated to the NE corner of campus, allowing for a more controlled area, while also reducing the congestion on East Neal. This would also allow for increased safety for students to walk to the playground or cafeteria prior to the start of school. -The School Board of Trustees has voted to purchase/lease portable classrooms that will be located outside of the main buildings. With these classrooms being outside of the main campus buildings, increased safety concerns do arise.
Amazing Community We just received an anonymous donation of $260 for our After School Program! We are so grateful for this!
