    viduals to state in the following sports:

    List of

    sports that were recognized by the WIAA for having reached the outstanding and distinguished categories for academic accomplish-

    Math 88% and Biology (80%) pass

    rate. Kamiakin students took 460

    different Advanced Placement

    tests in 2015. Over 86% of stu-

    dents enrolled in Advanced

    Placement classes took the end

    of course test.

    The motto Be the Best You Can

    Be is more than a slogan at

    Kamiakinit is a commitment to

    excellence that permeates all that

    we are. Being the best requires

    each of us to make a daily com-

    mitment in all of our choices. As

    we set our goals for the 2015-

    2016 school year we need to

    reflect upon last year. If you are

    new to Kamiakin, this may be the

    first time you have heard how

    lucky you are to be attending the

    top school in the Tri-Cities; if

    you have been part of our suc-

    cess before you are the rea-

    son why we are the best!

    Kamiakins reputation as one of

    the top academic schools in all of

    Washington was reaffirmed with

    the academic accomplishments of

    our students last year. Members

    of the class of 2017 earned a 90%

    mark in Reading 88% and passed

    writing at 92%. They also posted

    the highest ever rates on the End

    of Course Assessments;

    Our students competed at the high-

    est level and earned conference,

    district, regional championships and

    State Championships.

    These sports represent nearly 900

    student-athletes who choose to be

    committed in both the classroom as

    well as on the playing field. Excel-

    lence is defined by more than exter-

    nal records and awards. It is a quality

    carried deep within the heart of a

    good teacher, a good coach or a

    good student- a quality reflected by

    being a BRAVE.

    Kamiakins success wasnt limited to

    the playing field; we also competed

    in various Vocational and Academic

    competitions throughout the year

    including; FFA, Real World Design,

    DECA, Music, Drama and

    Knowledge Bowl. In these areas our

    students used the knowledge that

    they gained in classes and competed

    against other students throughout

    the region, the state and the nation.

    Research shows that students who

    are involved in school are more

    likely to be academically successful.

    They are less likely to drop-out of

    school, less likely to abuse substanc-

    es. We encourage all students to

    find a way to be involved.

    We hope that you look forward to

    the upcoming year as much as we

    year may be the use of Roundup or

    equal to control weeds around build-

    ing, parking lots, along fence lines and

    to mark athletic fields. Commercially

    available materials may be used to

    control ants, bees, wasps and or yellow

    jackets in and around buildings. Con-

    tracted services are normally used

    when products available to us simply

    will not control or eliminate the pest

    or pests.

    When the use of pesticides is necessary

    notification to parents, guardians and

    staff members is required 48 hours

    prior to the application. A notification

    notice will be posted in a prominent

    location, usually on the main entrance

    to the school. The notice will include,

    as a minimum, the product name of the

    pesticide to be applied, the intended

    date and time of application, the loca-

    tion to which the pesticide will be

    applied, the pest to be controlled and

    the name and phone number of the

    contact person at the school. If a par-

    ent, guardian or staff member requests

    individual notification of a pesticide

    application, they will need to fill out a

    registration form available at the school

    office. Whenever a pesticide applica-

    tion is necessary, a notice will be sent

    home prior to the application.

    Pre-notification requirements do not

    apply if the application is made when

    the school will not be occupied by

    students for at least two consecutive

    days after the application. An applica-

    tion made on Friday evening after stu-

    dents have left does not require pre-

    notification. Additionally, an applica-

    tion of an anti-microbial pesticide such

    as disinfectants, cleansers, bleaches or

    the placement of insect or rodent baits

    that are not accessible to children, do

    not require notifica-

    tion. Pre-notification requirements do

    not apply to any emergency application

    for the control of any pest that poses

    immediate human health or safety

    threat, such as an application to control

    stinging insects. When an emergency

    application is made notification shall

    applications made within school facili-

    ties. Additional information concerning

    IPM can be obtained by calling the KSD

    Buildings & Grounds Department at

    usage is available in September of each

    year for the preceding year.

    During the 2001 legislative session

    Senate Bill 5533 was passed and signed

    by Governor Lock requiring the post-

    ing and notification of pesticide applica-

    tions at schools and day-care centers.

    The bill took effect July 1, 2002 and

    requires that written notification be

    given annually or upon enrollment to

    parents or guardians of students and

    employees describing the schools pest

    control policy and methods including

    notification requirements.
