The Pirate April 2019


I'm going to start out with a "shout out" to our parents!!!! What a great turnout for our parent teachers conferences in the 2nd semester. I just want you all to know how much our faculty enjoyed meeting and visiting with you about the success of your children. The faculty also enjoyed visiting and meeting the new parents. I just can't tell you how much we appreciate your investment in your children's education.

I am excited to announce that we have 7 parent member group for the new Parent-Teacher Volunteer group at Hagerman HS. I am excited to work along side motivated parents and teachers to continue to build our school and students in a positive direction. I encourage any other parents who want to be involved to please contact Mr. Wadsworth at the high school.

It's hard to believe that we are 7 weeks away from graduation. I am taking a look at the direction of our high school and I have to say that I am pleased with the genuine investment by the faculty, staff, and community in what we want for our students. This is obviously going to continue to be an ongoing process. We don't want to accept the idea that Hagerman HS cannot continue to work toward a high performing school. It takes teachers, parents, administrators, and stakeholders to all be invested in "What is Best for Students". We want to give them the best opportunities that we can in order to become successful and receive a quality education. It should be ALL of our obligations for this expectation. We have some good ideas that we are working on at the high school and we are always open to suggestive changes that benefit our students. Please help us to continue this quest. Thank you.
