News and Notes from your Principal

August 2017

Hello again Cavalier family! We are officially in the “Dog Days” of summer (I think), so I thought it was a good time to send out some greetings and let you know what we have been up to here at Calvert High School.

For starters, every school year ends with much optimism following the many ceremonies and exciting activities associated with graduation. Last year was no different as we said goodbye to an exceptional class of students. As soon as it is all over though, we get to work reflecting on the previous school year and collaborating on ideas to improve all of our processes. The administrative team here at CHS is committed to supporting teaching and learning and we have some great ideas for next year that we hope will do that better than ever before.

Our building service staff has been active overhauling our classrooms, and scrubbing things down from top to bottom. They have made great progress and while we are not quite ready for business, we are definitely on track to have things ready when the class of 2021 officially steps through our doors for the first time on September 1 for our new student orientation. I will send out a separate correspondence to all of our new students with full details. As you hopefully already know, the first day of school this year is Tuesday, September 5 for the rest of the student body.

In addition to the new student orientation on September 1 and the first official day for students on September 5th, there are some other important dates to know:

  • September 6 & 7
    • Grade level assemblies to cover the code of conduct
  • September 8               
    • First home football game
  • September 12             
    • Back to School Night (6:00 PM Open House)
  • September 28             
    • 2 hour early dismissal
  • September 29             
    • School closed for students

Finally! Please don’t forget to stop by the Prince Frederick Safeway when you need to shop, and make a donation to CHS. The fine folks at Safeway have graciously agreed to run a fundraising campaign for us.  We will use all donations to buy school supplies and technology for our students.

Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing everyone soon. I hope you have a safe and enjoyable end to your summer.
