News and Notes from your Principal
Hello again Cavalier family! I have a number of exciting things to share. First, Curriculum Night (otherwise known as Registration Night) is creeping up on us fast. We will be open February 16 from 6:30 to 8 PM to show the community the great opportunities for classes that are available for next year. We will also have an orientation for AP World History directed towards incoming 9th graders at 5:30. If you know of any students who fit this category who might not read this, please let them know to give us a call and inquire about AP World History night.
The next big event I want to tell you about is the Spring Open House at the Career and Technology Academy on February 22 at 6:30 PM. Students and family members can come out to the CTA adjacent to Calvert High School and learn about the fifteen programs available to 11th and 12th graders at CHS.
Next, the Science Expo is on Saturday February 25. There will be a number of great exhibits and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) experts on hand to meet with you and let you see some of the great things going on and available to your students in the area of STEM.
February also brings us a couple of important scheduling reminders of which to be aware. First, February 17 is a 2 hour early dismissal for CCPS. February 20th, which was initially a scheduled day off for staff and students, is now a day designated for parent teacher conferences and staff development. February 21st, which was initially an off day for students, is now designated as a regular school day. February 24th marks the end of the first half of 3rd quarter and interim reports will be available then.
On some other academic related matters, please take a close look at your student’s progress and reach out to us here at school if you have any concerns. I highly recommend close communication between parents and staff here at CHS and have encouraged our teachers and administrators to reach out to parents as much as possible to help all students succeed. Data demonstrates that students whose parents participate in their educational journey are more successful, so we encourage you to be involved as much as you are able. Please feel free to contact me any time at 443-550-8880. I thank you for everything you do for our community, and I look forward to continuing to serve our students, staff, and community as your Principal.
