    Additionally, students are not allowed to decorate their caps & gowns.  Students may only wear school issued cords, stoles or other academic or co-curricular adornments during graduation, our Native students may adorn their regalia with beads, feathers, ribbons, or other culturally significant materials (this permissed per SB 319).

    Eagle Medallions

    The Eagle Medallion Medal is the highest honor given to any MCPS student. Big Sky awards up to 25 seniors at graduation with this honor.  Seniors are not notified prior to graduation if they will be receiving this award. This award is not based just on academics and involvement in activities, all staff are required to participate in order to make sure students that demonstrate the medallion qualities are provided an opportunity. 

     

    Eagle Medallion Criteria includes:

    • 3.5 GPA or higher
    • Scholarship
    • Leadership
    • Service programs such as (but not limited to): DECA, Student Government, Key Club, Special Olympics.
    • Athletic Participation-Big Sky sports only considered

    • Demonstration of Critical Thinking
    • Ability to professionally communicate and collaborate with peers, teachers, staff & school leadership.
    • Demonstration of Independence and Self-Reliance
    • Demonstration of strength of character

     

    Other important considerations:

    • Students who have received any major Office Discipline Referrals during their 4 years at Big Sky will not be considered. 
    • Students with less than 3.5 GPA may be considered if they are recommended by staff and have shown qualities in other criteria categories.
    • Courses rigor will not impact consideration-for example students taking 4 years of math will not be considered over students that have only taken the required 3 years of math. 
    • Students who are in specialized programs such as having an IEP (Individualized Education Plan or 504) will be considered equally based on the stated criteria.

     

    Graduation

    Graduation will be at 9am on Saturday, June 1st at the Adams Center at the University of Montana and will last approximately 90 minutes. The graduates are required to be lined up in the East Auxiliary Gym (as practiced) no later than 8am. Parking passes are not needed on graduation day and tickets are not required. We all hope that graduation weekend will be filled with excitement and positive memories.  Many family members and friends will travel hundreds of miles to share in this experience.

     

    Hopefully for our 9th-11th graders seeing all of this information gets them excited to see themselves as future graduates! We are so proud of our Big Sky students.  Take Care Big Sky, have a great week.

    Posted by Jennifer Courtney on 4/7/2024

    Big Sky Students & Parents-

    Don’t forget, Tuesday is a remote day for 9th, 10th and 12th grade students.  Only 11th graders planning on taking the ACT should arrive at Big Sky.  There will be no buses running and 11th graders need to be to Big Sky no later than 8am.  Breakfast and sack lunch will be available.  Parents-you do not need to call in attendance for this day, it is a remote day, so no attendance will be taken. 

    Students-we have taken some steps in the positive direction with regards to the garbage in the parking lot, but our new issue is students parking on the grass and rock islands.  Officer Cameron shared at the assembly that he will now be issuing city parking tickets if you are found to be parking there.  

    Here are a few additional reminders:

    • The Annual Farm to Table event is Thursday April 25th. Come out and tour the MCPS Agricultural Center, and be entered in to win a School House meats gift box-Farm to Table Tour Sign Up 
    • Mamma Mia is happening this week! Join the Theater department- April 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th, doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 7:30pm. $10 per person and you can pay at the door when you arrive. CASH OR CHECKS ONLY! WE CAN’T ACCEPT CARD!
    • Seniors-don’t forget to vote for the top staff member for graduation speaker! Graduation Speaker Vote.  Also next week I will be sending out a draft of end of year events, focused on seniors so stay tuned for all the upcoming events happening! 

    Have a great week Big Sky, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions! Go EAGLES!

    Big Sky Students & Parents-

     

    Just another reminder that Tuesday, April 9th is a remote day for 9th, 10th and 12th grade students for the ACT.  11th graders taking the ACT need to be at Big Sky no later than 8am, there is no busing provided so please plan accordingly. 

     

    • Thursday during Advisory, Student Government will be hosting a Spirit Assembly, so your 2nd period teachers will be bringing you down to the gym for a fun time! 
    • Students-you need to make sure you are bringing your charged Chromebook to school each day! We are loaning out over 50 Chromebooks a day from the Library and are close to exceeding our extras. 

     

    Prom is happening May 4th at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.  There are some important things to know about prom:

    • It is only for 11th & 12th graders unless you are a 9th or 10th grader invited by an 11th/12th grader
    • Ticket sales will work a little differently this year.  If 2 tickets are being purchased, both people attending must be present with student ID’s to purchase tickets. 
    • UPDATE-If you are bringing a date that does not attend Big Sky, you must have a completed form at the time tickets are purchased. A few rules have changed regarding this as well-
      • Forms need to be completed in order to purchase tickets for current students (this includes Willard, other high schools or homeschooled students)
      • Attendees must be 18 years of age or younger, or have been a high school graduate within the past 2 years (Class of 2022 or Class of 2023), and the form must be signed by their former school staff.  
      • All parties must be present to purchase tickets, so there will be opportunities for tickets to be purchased after school hours or one Saturday to ensure a chance for everyone to be present. 

     

    Upcoming Levies-parents I would encourage you to take a moment to review the attached flyer that provides information regarding the upcoming levy vote on May 7th.  I would be happy to answer questions about how the levies will impact Big Sky High School.  It’s important for our school community to understand we have lost 7 full time teacher positions next year due to allocations for funding from the state level.  Teacher appreciation week is coming up in May, so if any parent group would like to help us celebrate them, please let me know! 

     

    Have a great week Big Sky, please reach out if you need anything.

    Big Sky Students & Parents-

    I hope this weekly update finds you rested after the Spring Break! It’s important that everyone is reviewing the Big Sky calendar-there are lots of upcoming games, events and our musical! Check out all the events on the Big Sky Calendar.

    Prom is happening May 4th at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.  There are some important things to know about prom:

    • It is only for 11th & 12th graders unless you are a 9th or 10th grader invited by an 11th/12th grader
    • Ticket sales will work a little differently this year.  If 2 tickets are being purchased, both people attending must be present with student ID’s to purchase tickets. 
    • If you are bringing a date that does not attend Big Sky, you must have a completed form at the time tickets are purchased. A few rules have changed regarding this as well-
      • Only students may attend (this includes Willard, other high schools or homeschooled students) forms need to be completed by someone at the school or that can verify they are homeschooled.
      • Attendees must be 18 years of age or younger, this is a high school dance and we have seen an increase in older adults attending with students.  This becomes a safety concern and becomes hard for the chaperones to manage. 
      • All parties must be present to purchase tickets, so there will be opportunities for tickets to be purchased after school hours or one Saturday to ensure a chance for everyone to be present. 
    • Attached is the prom form, and will also be available in the main office.
