Welcome to Canyon Lake High School

Dear CLHS Parents,
 
I can’t believe we are already in November!  Fall is in full bloom and I believe cold weather is going to stay around for a while!!  With the beginning of November, comes the holiday season and lots of playoff games!!   GO HAWKS!!!
 
We also finished up Red Ribbon Week with so many Hawks participating in week long activities.  We are beginning a “Teacher Turkey Feather” contest to raise funds for Thanksgiving meals during the holiday this year; feathers can be bought for 25 cents from any teacher and the winning “Teacher Turkey” wins the PRIZE!!  This is a great way for our students to give back to those in need.  I would like to thank Mrs. Platt for coordinating these events.
 
As parents, the most common question I get is how can you help your student be successful?  Three key components of high school success: first be connected to the school through TXconnect, PTA, volunteering, Hallway Heroes, and social media; second is to talk to your student each day and have them show and tell you something that they did in class; and third build a relationship with your student’s teachers.  They are with them day in and day out and they see their successes and their struggles.  They are your student’s most influential person in setting them up for success.  Let them know if you have concerns.
 
With Daylight Savings Time happening last Saturday, it is that time to fall back and get an extra hour of rest.  It also signals shorter days; we have less time to make things happen so we must be very intentional in reaching our goals of overall student achievement.  CLHS showcases each day outstanding students and teachers that live The Hawk Way and strive to leave their Leagacy through their actions and words in order to make our campus and our community proud of being a Hawk!
 
Many blessings to you all during this thankful season!
