Principal News and Notes

November 2018

Principal Steve Lucas

November is here and marks the month for being thankful. I am thankful to live here in Calvert County and to serve the students and families of Calvert High School and our community. Being an educator is extremely rewarding, and I cannot think of a profession I would rather be doing. In a completely unrelated area, I am also thankful for the many of you who serve in uniform and those of you who have served before. We are blessed to live in a country where enough men and women actually volunteer to serve in our nation’s defense. God bless these selfless soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines.

November signals the time when our first marking period comes to a close. In about two weeks student report cards will be available on HAC and I know the majority of students will have earned marks of which to be proud- congratulations! For others though, the first quarter might have been a difficult adjustment. If your student falls into this category, there are three more marking periods for him or her to try things differently and improve those grades. Remember we have numerous supports here at school and help is literally a phone call away. If your student is having any problems here at school please call your student’s guidance counselor or grade level administrator for support.

Fall sports are beginning to wind down and playoffs for many sports have begun or will be starting soon. There is nothing like getting out to a game so I encourage you to get your families together and come out to support your Cavalier athletes. Speaking of support, I would like to thank everyone who came out to the Fall play Dracula. The students and adults of Double-Edged Productions put on an excellent show and we are very proud of them.

I’d like to congratulate our employees of the month for October:  Ms. Somers and Ms. Gray. Ms. Somers is our wonderful teacher of American Sign Language and Ms. Gray serves as our In-School-Suspension coordinator. Both of these educators are extremely committed to student success and vital members of this team and our community. Please congratulate them if you see them.

As we move into the holiday season I would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable time. Please feel free to contact me at 443-550-8881 with questions or suggestions. For those of you I have not yet met, I look forward to meeting you, and for those I know I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Sincerely,
Steven Lucas
