Assistant Principal’s Corner
We have now gone through several weeks of school for the 2014-2015 school year, and I am very pleased with the student body and how well they have worked with their peers and teachers to set the tone for a great year. Schools are very complicated today with many moving parts, and it takes everyone’s help and cooperation in order for them to work like a well-oiled machine. No pun intended! As the high school assistant principal, it has been my pleasure watching several of our students excel in extracurricular events like sports and after school clubs. Our club advisors and coaches do a wonderful job making sure these students not only learn about the activity they are involved in but also give back to their community and take pride in representing their school in a positive way. Students that get involved with after school activities also learn valuable skills like collaboration, time management, hard work, strong supportive relationships, responsibility, and social skills. With families having both parents working these days, it is critical students are busy right after school to help prevent them from getting into trouble. There is much data to prove that students involved in extra curricular activities are better prepared for college. http://professionals.collegeboard.com/guidance/prepare/extracurricular
As the 2014-2015 school year quickly moves along, I look forward to seeing many more of our students doing well in both the classroom and in their school-related activities. Remember, what you do in and out of school is a reflection of you, your family, your school, and your community. Make great choices and have fun!
