From The Principal

Dear Chieftain Families,

Just like that, it is December…almost!  It’s almost unthinkable that we’ve reached December, but as my children remind me at home, we have only three more Monday’s until winter break!  We return to school next week to the first week of December and near the midway point of Quarter 2.   We This half quarter is the quickest as we fly toward the end of the semester and exams after the winter break!  This time of year moves fast.  More than any other time of the year, the partnership between school and parents is essential to keep everyone focused and moving forward successfully!

This season also brings with it the opportunity for our community to give back!  That’s already begun.  Last Friday, our basketball teams, cheer team and dance team collaborate to hold the Friday Night Madness that raised $1400 for Special Olympics, our school is responsible for adopting 7 families through different clubs and individuals for Hamlin for the Holidays, our Key Club has begun its non-perishable food drive in partnership with Kiwanis and our Student Council and National Hispanic Honor Society have begun the yearly Marine Corps Toys for Tots Drive, to name a few!  We are eager to welcome families to donate to any of these causes that have incredibly positive impacts on our community! I am truly grateful for the generosity of our students, families, booster organizations, and all those who call themselves Chieftains.  At a Chieftain’s core is the drive to ensure the well-being of his or her tribe.  Our chieftains continue to outdo themselves year after year to this end.
