From: Marcia Latta

Ocean Dunes High School students and staff members had the opportunity to welcome Interim Assistant Superintendent Sascha Perrins during a visit on Friday, January 19th.

Principal Joy Koenig said she was proud to show him arounds MESD’s most remote school site, located at Camp Florence in Florence, Ore. “Ocean Dunes may be a small school, but they have a big heart for students, and they are doing great work meeting the variety of student needs at the school.”

The school tour included the new greenhouse, under construction after high winds blew the old one down; the new kiln for art and creative expression; the new classroom Promethean Board with new Ocean Dunes branding; and a discussion of future plans for VESOY (vocational education, school of older youth) and the high school program.
“I was happy to see staff and students working so creatively on their academic projects at the Ocean Dunes facility,” said Perrins. “The GED program, greenhouse construction and wonderful kitchen were all innovative examples of how our students can grow and learn with our committed staff!”

Perrins was able to meet a few students, MESD staff teacher Carol Besset, and educational and VESOY assistant Kelly Kawahara. He also spoke to site partners from OYA, including VESOY employee Marc Barnum, camp director Richard Ross and assistant camp director Jeffrey Pickell.

“We are always happy to show off the work we are doing on behalf of students,” said Koenig. “And we are delighted that Sascha was able to come see our school in action. We believe students and staff are living up to our school motto: ‘The Tide: A Force For Good’.”
