Dear high school freshman;
Welcome to the last 4 years of your “free” education. During your first eight years we, the tax payers, have invested about $72,400 in you at the rate of $9,050 per year. Based on your 182 day school year we are investing $49.53 each day in your education. We are about to invest another $36,200 in your next four years. We are counting on you to maximize that investment. If you have not lived up to your potential; now is a great time to change and make the most of your final four years.
If you are a tough kid; aka “bad ass”; please see a coach. We need you on the track team, football team, lacrosse team, soccer team, wrestling team … you get the idea. If you are really tough why not get recognition for your effort as opposed to suspension.
If you have artistic talents in music, dance, theater, science Olympiad, debate … seek the coaches in those areas. They will be happy to see you and help you achieve your potential.
The staff is there to encourage you to utilize all your talents and abilities for your betterment and to help you make the most of the rest of your life, regardless of what your life has been up to this point.
After high school, it is all on you. College tuition is your burden. If you win a scholarship it is up to you to maintain the requirements of that scholarship, be it academic or athletic. If you enter the military, you will face rules and regulations you have probably not yet imagined. Our Government will not be intrusting you with million dollar equipment if you are not trust worthy.
Make these last four years the best they can be. You have a great support group in the high school staff that is willing to do whatever it takes to help you to achieve your goals. Their success is measured by your success.
Work hard, achieve your goals, and make us proud.
