Yesterday students traveled to KVH to learn more about careers in Healthcare. They did a great job asking questions and engaging with professionals from HR, Doctors, Nurses, Engineering and IT. Students also learned more about KVH Apprenticeship programs and were inspired by a demonstration on Stop The Bleed. The Warriors that attended have hopes of one day becoming ER Nurses, Ultra Sound Technicians, Physical Therapists, Nutritionists, Pediatric Nurses, Radiology Technicians, Pharmacists, Accountant AND a Heart Surgeon. Industry experiences like these are an exciting opportunity for our students. If you and your business, would be interested in hosting a student experience, reach out to Sarah Day ( in the Career Center to learn more!

Dear Cle Elum-Roslyn School District Parents and Students, As we approach parent and student conferences today, we wanted to get you some important information regarding food service. We hope you are enjoying the improved quality of our food and the new options students and staff are enjoying. During COVID we were able to offer free lunches for all because of Federal COVID money. Those resources are no longer being allocated and we are required by the State to collect for breakfast and lunches, and we are not allowed to let students carry negative balances moving forward. Starting November 15th, we will need to stop allowing negative balances. No students will be shamed, and all students will be fed an alternative meal. You should be receiving skyward food account balance emails twice a week if your account is getting low, or overdrawn. We will begin to alert you when your balance is $25 or lower. We are here to help! Now is a great time to emphasize the importance of submitting your Free and Reduced Lunch Form, even if you do not plan to use a free lunch. Your participation in this program has far-reaching benefits for our district students and our community as a whole. As a District, our percentage of free and reduced lunch rates are much lower than districts in our region. That could mean many things like misunderstanding you need to fill out the form annually, assuming you don’t qualify (check here for an overview) or poor communication on the part of the District to you. This form is an easy form to fill out and we will have forms available for our parent and student conferences. Doubt if you’ll qualify? We encourage you to fill out the form. Here are some compelling reasons why it's crucial to complete the Free and Reduced Lunch Form each year: 1. Federal Funding for Education: Higher percentages of Free and Reduced Lunch forms directly impact the amount of federal funding our district receives for education. These funds are crucial for maintaining and improving the quality of education we can provide to your children. 2. Support for Vulnerable Students: The information you provide on these forms helps us identify students who may need additional support or resources. 3. Additional Support: Free and reduced rates that hit a percentage a little higher than we are now as a District, could qualify the entire district to be free lunches, improves our support in Federal grants like Title 1, helps in our e-rate (provides lower rates for internet and telecommunications) and can reduce our transportation costs. 4. Ensuring Positive Nutrition for All: Participating in the Free and Reduced Lunch program ensures that all students have access to balanced and nutritious meals, which is essential for their physical and mental well-being. As numbers rise in food service, we can improve our offerings. 5. Confidentiality: Students and families that qualify are kept highly confidential. Students enter a code like all students, and move through the line, there is no understanding by students, or staff running the registrars who qualify. This is kept highly confidential. Important Deadline: November 15th is when we will offer alternative meals until families have addressed their overdrawn balance. After this date, we will no longer be able to carry negative balances for school meal accounts. Access to the Form: Here is how you access the form, and we are glad to support you in completing the form in any office of the district. If you have filled out a form, and you have not heard back from the district, please email us here @ How can I check my account balance, click the link in food services on "How to" How can I add money to my students account? You can do this through our Online Store Access or you can cut a check in the mail office to add money to the account. Thank you for your continued support in making Cle Elum-Roslyn School District an exceptional place for learning and growth. If you have any questions, or concerns about this communication, please email me directly glad to address it Our amazing administrative assistants below, in each of the schools can also help you with any questions as well.

Celebrating the Power of Community Dear Community Happy Friday! As we navigate the intricate web of life, it's essential to take a moment to reflect on the significance of community and express our gratitude for the invaluable bonds we share. Community is the cornerstone of our existence and an important part of our new Strategic Plan. It brings people together, creating a support system that is essential for our well-being. Through our communities, we find common ground, support one another, and create a sense of belonging. Whether it's our local neighborhoods, professional networks, schools or online groups, communities offer a space where we can grow, learn, and thrive. Yesterday was a strong reminder of the importance of community for me in my role as Superintendent. The images are of community I experienced yesterday. The sculpture unveiling in Roslyn Park, a collaboration with Yakama Nation and our rich local heritage. The CERHS Snowboard/Ski Club board presenting to the executive leadership team at the Summit to help fund and sustain a project of getting our community youth skiing at a reduced rate. The last image is of the grand re-opening of the Coal Trax Bike Park, hosted by the Rat Pack MS/HS mountain bike team. All strong examples of this community embracing our diversity, our interests, and our collective good. Gratitude is the foundation of any strong community. It is the glue that holds us together and keeps the bonds strong. By acknowledging and appreciating the people who make up our communities, we reinforce the ties that bind us and foster a sense of unity. So, let's take a moment to express our gratitude for the communities that have shaped our lives. Whether it's a neighbor who always lends a helping hand, a coworker who offers guidance, a teacher who goes above and beyond, we owe a debt of gratitude to those who make our lives richer and more meaningful. Thank you for being a part of my community, and for the positive impact you bring to my life and our District. I am truly grateful. All my best- “JB” John Belcher Superintendent

This week, a team of 9 HS & MS staff members attended the Washington Association of Career and Technical Educators (WA-ACTE) conference in Spokane. They learned about new activities, skills and resources that will enhance our district's CTE courses. Staff also learned more about graduation pathways, creating stronger ties with businesses/industry partners, dual credit opportunities AND got to network with other CTE professionals from around the state. They also were the largest team from Kittitas County at the conference! Way to go Wildcats & Warriors!!
