Principal's Message

Hello Hurricane Family,


I hope that the first part of 2019 has been good to you. Things here at Klein Cain have been busy to say the least. We have had our students involved in so many things since we have returned from Winter Break and they are representing us so well! It is so refreshing to see our CAT 5 Core Values of Collaboration, Risk-Taking, Integrity, Passion and Problem-Solving come to life in the classrooms, on stage, in the pool, on the court, on the field and in various competitions.


The successes we have had are solely due to the amazing leadership, dedication and passion exhibited by our students. They have not let the fact that we are a new school (competing against everyone without any seniors) stop them at all! In fact, they are using that "underdog" title that has been placed upon us as a catalyst for amazing outcomes. As a parent myself, I can honestly say that when my son enters high school, if he acts, serves others, competes and carries himself with half the amount of integrity, character, passion, respect, self-confidence and dedication that our current Hurricanes possess, I will be one proud mom! Thank you for allowing your students to share their talents with us, and for allowing them to serve as some amazing role models for the future Hurricanes to come.


The Spring Semester is always hectic and busy! Make sure that you stay up to date with all we have going on this semester. There is always something to do and always a chance for you to support the Klein Cain Hurricanes!


Reign Cain,

Nicole Patin
