    Principal's Message

    Grizzly Nation,

    Happy New Year and welcome to 2020! I hope everyone had a restful, relaxing and fun break with loved ones.  I am looking forward to all of our Grizzlies return and the energy students brings to our campus.  With the start to a new year also brings a start to a new semester.  I want to challenge and encourage all of our Grizzlies to start the spring semester strong!  This means attending class every day and on time, engaging in and out of the classroom and taking advantage of all the help around each Grizzly which starts with our amazing staff. 

    Furthermore, I want to encourage all Grizzlies to demonstrate that Grizzly Grit.  No matter how difficult or challenging things may get this semester, we truly believe each Grizzly has the ability to improve their skills. This belief is called a growth mindset and it is key to experiencing success.  Class of 2020, this is your final semester of your high school career.  Enjoy the memories you will make but most importantly you must finish strong!! You are all leaders on our campus and you must model what it means to be a Grizzly all the way through your commencement ceremony. 

    With that said, let’s treat each other with respect, care for your fellow Grizzly and make this semester a tremendous success.  Working together I know we can do it! Happy New Year Grizzlies and welcome back!


    Claws Up!     

    Mr. Joshua Kirk
