Principal News and Notes

Summer 2019

Principal Steve Lucas

Greetings Cavaliers!

It is with great enthusiasm I welcome you to Calvert High School. You are joining a tradition of rigorous academics and excellence in a welcoming school community environment. I am sure you are going to love learning here. This note is to both welcome students and families to our school and give you some information about events happening over the summer of which you might have an interest.

Here at Calvert High School we believe involvement equals success. Therefore, I encourage you to get involved as soon as possible in one of the many clubs, sports teams, or other activities here at school. Many things are going on over the summer so you can get active in school soon.

Also, I personally believe Calvert High School belongs to all of us and we all should have a say in what goes on. Towards that end, we very strongly rely on student leadership to help guide our culture. If you like the idea of contributing to the decisions which will affect you over the next four years, volunteer with your class council, student government, student leader association, or let one of your teachers know you’re interested in student leadership. They will point you in the right direction.

If you are interested in getting involved in school over the summer, here are a few things going on:

June-Aug: Weight Room and Open Gym (Call for information)
June 24-27:  Advanced Placement Boot Camp
Jul 29-Aug 1: NJROTC New Cadet Orientation
Aug 4-8: Freshman Boot Camp
Aug 13-15: Marching Band Camp
Aug 14: Fall Sports Try Outs
Aug 30: Freshman Orientation

If you would like to walk through the school with one of your administrators or staff members, just give us a ring. Sometimes, getting a feel for the building before the chaos of 1000+ other students reduces the stress associated with the first day. If you are really excited for high school, I highly recommend you think about experiencing our extended orientation or Freshman Bootcamp (don’t worry it really is not like boot camp). Each year we have more and more students participate, and it has become a big hit.

In closing, I want to reiterate how much I look forward to working with the students and families of the CHS community again next year. I encourage you to visit often, give us feedback, and even volunteer. Our doors are always open, and we welcome everyone’s participation in making CHS the best school it can be. I wish you a safe and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you on campus soon.

Steven Lucas, Ed. D.
