21 years of Pride at Colleyville Heritage High School
It is crazy to think that we are already finishing the third week of school. Throughout this week, you may have noticed that we adopted a school in Southeast Texas, Bridge City HS. Bridge City is a place very near and dear to my heart as I served as principal there prior to coming to CHHS. We are currently focusing our efforts to supporting those that lost so much in the flooding from Hurricane Harvey. We will have several opportunities to make monetary donations to support the relief efforts in this great community, starting tonight at the football game.
Speaking of the football game, tonight is going to be a great night to come support all of our students as they put their talents on display. The Friday experience is truly an amazing thing to see with all of the PRIDE on display by so many groups with CHHS students. The game starts tonight at 7:30pm at Mustang-Panther Stadium. You can purchase your tickets online this year by using the following link. On the volleyball front, they begin district play tonight as they travel to Carter Riverside. CHHS Volleyball is currently ranked 5 in the state with a record of 21-7. Needless to say, it is a great time to be a Panther!! Have a great weekend and GO PANTHERS!!

To me, CHHS PRIDE means being the best I can be; not only for myself, but for CHHS and the organizations I represent. Whether it's going with the band to football games and competitions or attending service events with a club. I'm proud to be a Colleyville Heritage student and I am always excited to give my best effort. PRIDE at CHHS is something this school has done a great job establishing and something that I'm so thankful to be a part of.
