Panther Pause

Colleyville Heritage High School


Dear Parents and Staff,

We are excited to be completing our third week of school together. Students and teachers are in the rhythm of teaching and learning, and I am excited about what I am seeing in classrooms.

I would like to invite you to our Open House on Monday, so that you can meet your child's teachers, and have the opportunity to walk our hallways and visit CHHS. We will begin Open House this year in our auditorium for a brief message along with some introductions. At the conclusion of that meeting, you will be invited to walk your student's schedule and spend about 10 minutes learning from their teachers. I suggest you print your student's schedule or take a picture of it on your phone so that you have that readily available. We look forward to spending the evening with you and your family.

Today marks the 14th anniversary of 9/11. I want to say a special thank you to all of the families that have or currently serve in the armed forces, police and fire departments, and in the medical field. We appreciate all that you do to serve our community and Nation.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you,

Conrad Streeter

CHHS Principal
