Cedarcrest High Red Wolves and Families, Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! We are so excited to have you as part of our Pack and can’t wait to connect with you in a couple weeks. As the new principal here at CHS, I have learned a few things in my first couple of months:
We are surrounded by an amazing community that loves being involved for ALL students
Wanting what is best for kids is at the heart of the work of our staff
Our students have varying interests and believe that their teachers expect them to do their very best
Knowing these things about our CHS Community affirms I’ve landed in the right place. I look forward to getting to meet you in person and being a part of the amazing year ahead. Please read through the helpful information included as it will best set you up for success. As you soak up the final few days of summer before we return to the building, get excited about what’s to come and get ready for a year of collaborative learning and growth. See you on the 5th!
