Hello Warrior Families,

As we close the first mid-quarter of the school year, there are a few things to be mindful of and to celebrate.

Thank you to all of the parents who attended our Back to School Open House and our College and Career Fair last week, it was a rousing success with the highest participation in many years with over 800 families in attendance and a lot of great conversations about supporting students in their pursuit of success in high school and beyond. If you were unable to attend last week but would like to connect with your child’s teachers, please don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule an appointment. You can always reach us at the main school phone number of 253-583-5500. By the Way- we went through a record amount of Chili- over 160 qts!

Our mission statement says: “Clover Park High School is a diverse learning community where students develop the knowledge, perseverance and skills to become lifelong learners focused on serving and leading in a global society”. In order to accomplish this mission we need a renewed sense of urgency to improve our culture of learning- especially in attendance at school. While we have made significant gains in graduation rates the last three years as well as in other areas of our work, we have lagged in attendance. On-time attendance at school is one of the leading indicators for success in schools across the country. Students with an attendance rate that is lower than 90% (18 days over the course of a year and 2 days absent per month) are significantly more likely to fail classes and ultimately not graduate on time. It is imperative that our students improve their attendance rate.

Student Led Conferences are coming up in November on Wednesday the 6th, Thursday the 7th, and Friday the 8th. The hours for conferencing will be from 12:00 to 7 p.m. on the 6th and 7th and from 12:00 to 2:30 on 8th. Students should be coming home with paperwork from their advisories to schedule a time for you to come in and meet with advisors to go over how the school year is progressing and where your student is in their work toward graduation. Please plan to attend. These will be half days for students. If you have a question about scheduling the conference, please call the main office at 253-583-5500. We are planning for 100% participation! This is a great way to connect with advisors and get a real sense of the progress your student is making.

Warrior Athletics are off and running! There have been a lot of successes to celebrate: Homecoming Football Game this Friday evening and the dance on Saturday from 8p.m. to 11 p.m. (Students should be picked up promptly at the conclusion of the dance), Girls Volleyball, Soccer, and Swim have been amazing this year. Cross Country and Tennis are also off to a strong start. Come out and support our Warriors.

 

Thank you for the amazing honor it is to serve your children and our community every day! Together we can make this the best school in the state!
