Students Honored at Rotary Luncheon

Senior, Jordan Delay and eighth grade student, Jarred Tallent were honored at the Forest Grove Rotary Luncheon on December 18th at Pacific University. Kathy Delay was there to watch Jordan receive his award. Mr. and Mrs. Tallent were there to watch Jarred be recognized! These two Gaston students were recognized for outstanding character and leadership within the school. We're proud of you both!


December 18th marked the end of the Sweet Revenge Canned Food Drive at Gaston Junior Senior High School! Ryan Sweet's Junior Career's Project was to conduct a canned food drive to benefit families in the Gaston area. Students brought in 502 cans of food to be donated to the local food bank. When cans were brought in, students put them in staff boxes. Staff agreed to kiss a variety of animals, depending on how many cans were donated on their behalf. The project was a fun way to give back to the community.
