Thank you to all who support our students and our schools! It's American Education Week 2014! You make a difference for students.
Congratulations to our Bluejacket volleyball team coached by Vicki Courts, Chris Hedberg, Mark Courts, Tosha Brown, and Andrea Birkholz. They won the 2014 Mississippi 8 Conference Volleyball Championship.
The team finished 9-0 in conference play. The volleyball team is a very impressive 24-4 on the season and will enter section play next week.
This volleyball championship is the first Bluejacket conference championship in volleyball since the 1978 season. A BIG Congratulations to our volleyball coaching staff and team!
Queen Thessa Daniels & King Nathan Cox were crowned Homecoming Royalty on Monday October 6th
Isanti Intermediate and School For All Seasons recognized a group of 12 students on September 19 for demonstrating the five character traits and for showing Bluejacket Pride.
We are Proud of them!
For the announcements during directed study:
Well done and thank you Cambridge-Isanti High School. For the
past four years, the Bluejacket varsity football team has taken a knee
when our opponents have experienced an injury during a game.
This is very classy and respectful behavior.
Last Friday at our football game with North Branch, a young man from North Branch was hurt and on the ground needing medical attention. OUr entire Bluejacket football team immediately took a knee out of respect and care for the injured. At the same time, our entire student cheering section all sat down out of respect and care. The respect, care, and class of our teams and cheering sections at events helps contribure to making our high school (in my opinion) the finest in the Nation.
Well cone and thank you Bluejacket students for being a leader and an example for others in class, respect, care, and sportsmanship!
GO BIG BLUE!

Congratulations to our Bluejacket volleyball team coached by Vicki Courts, Chris Hedberg, Mark Courts, Tosha Brown, and Andrea Birkholz, as on Saturday they won the Section 7AAA Volleyball Championship. Earlier this fall, the Bluejackets also won the Mississippi 8 Conference Volleyball Championship.
This Section Championship in Bluejacket Volleyball, is the first in school history. A BIG Congratulations to our volleyball coaching staff and team! Our team played with heart and pride and defeated an outstanding North Branch volleyball team 3-2. 25-17, 20-25, 26-28, 25-19, and 15-10 were the scores in an extremely well played match!
Thanks to our large delegation of Bluejackets fans that supported our team and coaching staff in the three section games. The numbers of parents/guardians, teachers, members of other Bluejacket coaching staffs, administrators, alumni, and resident fans was tremendous. Our large crowd celebrating the championship, with our team and coaching staff, on the gym floor at Chisago Lakes is a life-long fond memory to cherish!
We have great students at Cambridge-Isanti and North Branch. The students from both schools were loud and proud. The chanting back and forth was fun and provided for a great atmosphere: Loud chants of
" Let's Go Vikings, Let's Go Jackets"; rivalry and respect at its best!
GO BIG BLUE Volleyball!
"Our community helped to fund the secure entrances at our schools with support of the bond referendum last fall (2013). Thank you for helping to keep our students and our schools safe."

The principal, Mitch Clausen, of Cambridge-Isanti High School announced today that Charles Barnhouse, Ryan Fredlund, and Taylor Weeks have each been named a Commended Student in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2015 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2011 competition by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.
