    Principal’s Welcome

    Welcome back Sharks! The 2022-2023 school year awaits you with lots of excitement and high expectations. It is going to be an awesome year! This high expectation starts with leadership. I am asking our senior class to lead, leaving their legacy as the best senior class ever. Our expectations are simple, and we expect you to set the example for all to follow to ensure our rich tradition of success. Be nice, humble, and be the bigger person. Learn to give back, forgive, and to walk away from trouble. The key is abiding by these expectations consistently. Get to school early, be in class on time, follow dress code, take rigorous courses, and strive to be your best. Be kind, tolerant, and have a positive attitude throughout the entire school year. Your attitude dictates your altitude, so smile, laugh, give high fives, and bring energy to make the most of each day. Time is your most valuable asset, so use it wisely. Working hard and having a great sense of humor will carry you a long way in life. We promise you a very rigorous course of study, engaging lessons, and staff members who truly care and make you their first priority. My door is always open; please fill free to contact me about anything. I truly look forward to the
    2022-2023 school year, and I’m excited to work with you. Have a great year and, as always, GO SHARKS!

    Ryan Poston, Principal
