To provide all students with a quality education, to become productive citizens, equipped to meet the demands of the future, because failure is NOT an option

Dear Commerce High School Community,


I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2014-2015 school year!  I am delighted that we open the building for this new school year with rooms spic and span clean, shiny floors, and well groomed grounds.  We are even more thrilled to continue the journey of career readiness for our high school students as we continue our academic gains to even greater heights.  Summer has come and gone, it is now time for us to focus on the exciting changes that will help us to excel in all areas.  We have been very busy this summer with the hiring of many new teachers, engaging in professional development trainings (both teachers and administrators), and planning on continuing and refining our Professional Learning Communities where teachers team to maximize learning for our students.


I am privileged to have the opportunity to return this school year as your Principal and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, all of the supportive parents, and the Commerce community.


I’d like to invite you to visit our school’s website soon (  This will serve as your resource tool for all upcoming events, student/parent handbook, and important reminders such as the Week at a Glance.  This school year we will encourage our entire Commerce community to demonstrate TIGER pride by wearing our black and orange spirit colors on Fridays!  We will incorporate many other school spirit activities and we will continue to use the School Messenger for reminders of upcoming events.   You can also check monthly updates on our school Facebook page.


Commerce High School is indeed full of hope and optimism that we have become “Champions by Choice.”  Our journey of success begins August 25, 2014.  I hope that you all will be an integral part of the journey!


Educationally yours,



David Welch
