  • Dan Goldman Fall 2014
    So, October is here, the leaves are falling, the rain is coming, and my daughters have switched from wanting to be witches for Halloween to wanting to dress like "little men." Their idea is to wear little suites and ties, which makes me just laugh because (apparently) I am in a Halloween costume 5 days a week! The fall is always filled with great culture building activities in our schools like homecoming week at HRV (with air guitar, the bonfire, all the home sports games, and the dance) it's a great time to celebrate being an Eagle!

Located in the beautiful Hood River Valley, the Hood River County School District provides exceptional opportunities for students. Thanks to strong community support, our schools offer full-day kindergarten, experienced and expert staff, extracurricular programs at middle and high schools, and a wide range of college-credit and advanced-placement courses. More than 80 percent of our graduates pursue education beyond high school. We have recently invested $25 million to increase energy efficiency, add classrooms and upgrade key components of our school buildings. Come check us out!
