March 2020

Odds & Ends from the Principal

Hello again Cavalier family!

Welcome to March! My absolutely favorite month. Each year I remind everyone about the old saying “March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb.” The phrase was originally coined by Thomas Fuller in 1732 and so accurately describes the way March begins with the cold and blustery winds but eventually gives way to the first feelings of Spring. March can give us a renewed sense of optimism as the first buds begin to show on the trees and gives us signs of the annual transition to Spring. It is truly a hopeful and exciting time of the year.

I especially like this March saying because it was taught to me by my first grade teacher, Miss Day. It reminds me what a huge impact Miss Day and a bunch of other teachers had on my life– just like the teachers here at Calvert High. Our teachers are amazing and work exceptionally hard to provide our community with a world class education. If you see any of the great teachers from Calvert County Public Schools, please remind them how much you appreciate everything they do.

Here at school, we have passed the hundred day mark, and have been engaged uninterrupted by the usual challenges associated with the weather. As you know this winter has been unusually mild and the calendar has not been affected. In fact, this month brings limited interruptions to the routine with just one unusual oddity which is a 2 hour late arrival for teacher training on March 4. Please plan for that day.

Friday, February 28 was the official half-way point of the third quarter which means the end of the year will really be on us before we know it. Please check the status of your student often and reach out to us here at school if you have any concerns about classes. I especially encourage parents of seniors to check HAC daily and call us with any concerns. The last thing anyone wants is for a senior not to graduate if we could have intervened and given them additional support so they could succeed.

I thank you again for the privilege of leading our school. I invite you to visit often, and I wish you well.
