Welcome to November! I always think of November as being a month of transition. Not only do we have a time change (Fall back), the transition from Fall to Winter is more apparent each day.
The days are shorter, the good old east wind has more of a bite to it, and the rainy season is upon us. At school we are transitioning from Fall to Winter season sports. Basketball, swimming, and wrestling will soon be in full swing. It is always a fun time of year to catch a game, meet, or match in a nice warm gym or pool.
November also brings another progress grading period. This twelve-week progress grade provides a solid picture of where your student is at a critical point in the semester. With approximately 6-7 weeks left after Thanksgiving, there is still time to make some changes if necessary. Please take a look at your students ParentVue account to get their latest grades. Also, don’t hesitate to connect with a teacher or counselor if you have any concerns.
Of course November is also a time to give thanks. I want express to you how thankful I am to represent the David Douglas Community as your Principal. I feel blessed to work with wonderful students and staff each day. Together we have fostered an environment that prioritizes learning and caring for each other. David Douglas High School continues to be “A Place Where Connections are Made.”
