A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...

It's the end of the 3rd 9 weeks (Friday) and Spring Break is in our vision... but we aren't quite there yet! Finish up this 9 weeks strong, get some rest and relaxation over Spring Break and get ready for the end of the year craziness! When we get back from Spring Break the time will fly and we'll have seniors walking the stage before you know it. Let that sink in seniors and parents... Wow!


Thanks to the students, parents, faulty & staff, central office personnel and the School Board, Boerne HS has had a special school year. As you will see below, our extra curriculars in Fine Arts, Atheltics, and CTE area's continue to have extremely successful seasons and years. Thank you for supporting these students and encouraging them to participate in these very important events that they value and are an important part of our education at Boerne HS.


I hope everyone has an enjoyable, safe, and restful Spring Break!


Shane Wilson
