Special Schedule for Special Guest @ McNary
February 16, 2016 By:Hunter Watson
Last week Nike arranged for Anthony Robles, former NCAA wrestling champion and nationally recognized motivational speaker to come to McNary High School on February 17th.
Period 5 7:30-8:50
Period 6 9:1010:30
Period 7 11:35-12:55
Period 8 1:00-2:20
Please note, there will only be one lunch period that will last for an hour. Students in the assembly will be released at 11:00, so they will be joining their peers for the second half of the hour lunch. While no last minute change to a schedule is ever ideal, we believe that this is a great opportunity.

His audience will be approximately 1200 students from across our school district as well as about 500 McNary students. While we are excited to have Anthony speak at our school, we don’t have a super long runway to prepare for the significant logistical demands of this type of assembly. After some thoughts about how to manage twenty-two school busses of student guests during a time that is typically A lunch, coupled with 500 of our own students at an assembly instead of your class, we have devised a special schedule, which is also attached, just for this occasion.
The students attending the assembly are in-season athletes and AVID elective students. There will also be students who have leadership positions in various areas (ie. Fine arts, leadership class, etc.) that will also be in attendance. Obviously if we had enough space we would like everyone to attend, however, the presentation will be taped and put online for everyone to see if they so choose.
