Panther Pause

21 years of Pride at Colleyville Heritage High School

8.18.17

Panthers,


The first day is almost here, and I cannot express how very excited I am to see everyone for the upcoming year. I truly believe we have the best students and staff in the country. As we move into the 2017-2018 school year, I would urge you to be collaborative with your child's teachers, counselors, and administrators to help make their experience the best it can be at CHHS. I firmly believe that students get a four-year opportunity to experience everything that a high school has to offer, and it is our job to make sure they get that. Please encourage your child to get involved in a program and/or organization at CHHS. And, if we do not currently offer something that your student is interested in, please have them reach out to me.


If you are looking for a chance to show your Panther PRIDE, come join us for Panther PRIDE night this Saturday evening at 6pm. It has really been exciting to see all of the students around campus the last couple of weeks practicing for their extracurricular events, but this will not hold a candle to the excitement on Monday. Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone bright and early Monday on morning. GO PANTHERS!!


Dr. Lance Groppel
