Principal's Message

What a great first week of school! We have 1147 students enrolled at CHS9! Conroe is growing fast and we expect great things from the Class of 2023! I want you all to know that your children have done an outstanding job beginning their high school career. They have seamlessly learned our campus systems and are well on their way to establishing a solid foundation for their future success!

I want to make you all aware that Conroe ISD is in the process of switching emergency notification platforms used to communicate with parents and staff. This change requires an opt-in to the new system to continue receiving text messages. If you would like to receive SMS (text message) notifications on your mobile device, please text "Y" to 67587. Failure to opt-in by August 20 could result in not receiving timely or emergency text messages from Conroe ISD or your child’s campus.

As educators we are always reading things and searching for ways to improve our practice. It is our duty to constantly learn how best impact our campus and our students. I have included a few links to some of the articles that you will find interesting. Our goal is to teach the whole child and not just our content area!

This coming week we will begin our "Reading Matters Mondays". This is when our teachers read to our students during the extra time built into our 5th period classes. Also, please encourage your child to participate in our dress up days. Every Wednesday we wear our favorite college T-shirt, shirt, or jersey. And every Friday we celebrate being a Conroe Tiger!

Daily during lunch we share information regarding our campus via our "lunchroom slides". This is one of our ways that clubs and other activities report out to our students. Please view them to also become informed of these activities on campus. Also, under "Quick Links" are our "Common Area Expectations" which I highly recommend you viewing with your child. By doing so you will gain understanding of the policies and procedures followed on our campus. Please feel free to review all the quick links attached.

It is my honor in being your child's 9th Grade principal! If you ever have any questions or concerns please reach out to me. I hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend!
