Commerce High School Community,
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.
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.
like to invite you to visit our school’s website soon (www.commerceisd.org). 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.
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!
