21 years of Pride at Colleyville Heritage High School
It is amazing to think that we are a month into the school year already, but I guess time flies when you are having fun!! Man, we are having lots of fun at CHHS right now. I got the opportunity to visit several classrooms this week and it makes me excited to see what our teachers and students are accomplishing together. I really enjoyed our Open House this past Monday; it was great to see all of the parents visit CHHS to meet their students' teachers. This level of collaboration is vital to each student's success, so if you weren't able to attend, I would encourage you to reach out to your child's teacher to establish a relationship to help support the success of your student.
Our students continue to amaze me with their performances, both on the field and in the fine arts arena. If you haven't had the chance to see the Panther Band halftime show, I would strongly encourage you to catch the next performance of Cosmos - it is a fantastic show with a great representation of PRIDE!! Our state-ranked volleyball team has started off 2-0 in district with a big match tonight at home against Richland - come out and support them at 6:30pm. As soon as the volleyball game is finished, make your way to the football game at Pennington Field as our young men take on the Trinity Trojans. You will get the chance to see CHHS PRIDE on full display by our football team, cheerleaders, Panteras, Pep Boys, Panther Band, and of course, our student body as they cheer on our team to victory. Have a great weekend and GO PANTHERS!!

At CHHS, pride is a factor that affects us all. As a school we are all proud of something we have done individually or together. Whether it be passing a test, or winning a game, there is something we have done that has contributed in shaping what we know as CHHS pride. Our school's pride is unique and unlike any others. Through our successes and failures we unite as one and display our spirit in everything we do. Pride is what shapes us as students, individuals, and as a school. Panther pride never dies!
