Principal's Message

Hello Hurricane Family!


As we near the end of 2018, it is my sincere hope that all of you have the opportunity to spend some quality time with family and friends and create memories that will last a lifetime.


As I reflect back upon the this year, I can honestly say that it has undoubtedly been a memorable time for all of us! We have all worked so hard to make a name for Klein Cain HS and everyone around us knows that the Hurricanes are here to stay. We have performed with grace, dignity, integrity and passion in the classroom, on the field, on the court, in the pool, on the stage, and in the spotlight of the local KISD community, the city, state and the nation. I could not be more proud to be the principal of this amazing school with top notch staff and awe inspiring students! I am proud, and honored, to be #Anchored2Cain.


2019 is going to be a pretty amazing year for Klein Cain HS and we are excited to share in all of the excitement with you! May you and your families be showered with holiday cheer and start 2019 off with nothing but success and prosperity!


Happy Holidays,

Nicole Patin
