THANK YOU PENDLETON FOUNDATION TRUST

West Hills was the recepient of a Grant from the Pendleton Foundation Trust for the purpose of purchasing 5 chromebooks per classroom.  Thanks to their generosity, we were able to purchase 35 chromebooks!

School Attendance - Every Day Matters

In 2013-2014, the Pendleton School District’s attendance rate was 93%. The PSD strives not only toward 100%, but to have the best school attendance rate in Oregon.

National research shows a clear connection between chronic student absenteeism and poor performance in school and on standardized tests.

Poor attendance in the first month of school can predict chronic absence for the entire school year.

Missing just 2 days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.
