21 years of Pride at Colleyville Heritage High School
Wow!! What a fun week!! Homecoming is always such an exciting time at a high school, it always takes the normally high energy level to a whole other level. I know it has been a fun week for our students and staff. Last night was a great event for all of our student groups. I enjoyed seeing performances that were full of PRIDE throughout the night; from the football team to the students that were cheering them on to victory. I think this is one of the things that sets CHHS a part from so many other schools, because our students support each other on the field and, more importantly, in the classroom.
Over the past week, I had the opportunity to spend time in classrooms seeing what our students and teachers are accomplishing on a daily basis. It is amazing to see what our students are able to accomplish when they work together with their peers and teachers alike. This week, I visited a class where students were debating a myriad of topics that led to a level of learning that we could not create through other assignments. It truly was an amazing experience to witness.
Have a great weekend and GO PANTHERS!!

PRIDE at CHHS means never giving up while still remembering to have integrity, and never forgetting who we are or what we represent. As a Panther at CHHS, having PRIDE is putting forth one's best efforts and being proud of it, despite if it's a win or a loss. All in all, I am proud to be able to all myself a Colleyville Heritage High School Panther.
