Greetings parents and community,
As principal of Moses Lake High School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for the 2021-22 school year where excitement abounds, relationships strengthen, and learning continues at high levels! It is always energizing to see students fill the hallways with smiles and see classrooms filled with students who rise to challenges. After a year of being immersed in a global pandemic, we are so excited to start a new year filled with new beginnings! We will continue with the work that leads to empowering our students to become independent thinkers as well as productive, contributing members of our community. It takes all of us...students, staff, families, and the community...to provide the best learning opportunities for our students!
We are committed to providing students with opportunities to challenge themselves, make sense of their learning, and pose and discuss great questions. In today’s world, it is important that students leave Moses Lake High School with a strong foundation so they can compete in the ever-changing economy. Whatever route a student chooses to pursue after high school, it is imperative they are prepared. Moses Lake High School has many opportunities for students to do just that. We want students to take the fullest advantage of their high school education. As a result, our students have full schedules and are encouraged to have at least one class that challenges them. It is through challenges that students truly stretch and grow. A rigorous, high-quality education for ALL students not only makes them well-rounded, but gives them the best preparation for life beyond high school. Yes, there are bumps in the road when excellence is sought. Through support, teamwork, and acknowledging that such struggles and mistakes are necessary, growth occurs. AND, this, coupled with grit and persistence is cause to celebrate and acknowledge that these are signs that our students are learning at high levels. Learning is about growth and embracing high expectations together!
Our vision statement states it well:
ASPIRE ~~ BELIEVE ~~ CONNECT
so each student has life-long success.
Thank you for your support, concern, and interest in our student's education! I anticipate an outstanding year of growth and learning!
