Hello Parents, Students, Staff and Community Partners of our Great Cibola Community,
Summer isn’t over, but a school year is imminent. As you have come to expect, a vast variety of educational opportunities await you at Cibola, and soon our students will pour through our doors expecting great things, and they won’t be disappointed at Cibola High School. One of our teachers posts this quote in each email: "The kind of schooling that we give to children is the most important determinant of their future options in life" - Jonathan Kozol….At Cibola, we take to this philosophy and we open up opportunity doors. We look forward to serving you.
We have a new bell schedule, as you know. It’s posted on the APS website. Every Thursday, students will have an early release so that teachers can collaborate about ways to cause academic confidence to grow and success to thrive and blossom. School will dismiss at 1:00 PM, and the school busses will arrive. Students who are not a participant in a seasonal sport, and who are not in a credit recovery program will leave campus since supervision will not be available after 1:00 on Thursday. Our athletes whose sport is in season will go to practice at 1:00 PM. No clubs or organizations will meet after school on Thursday so that students will not have to report back to school. Students registered in credit recovery or mentorship programs will remain on campus in a library study hall.
We are proud to welcome our Cibola community to our Cibola Rush, an astounding school pride event on August 24th at 6:30. We welcome one and all to witness what makes Cibola High School the best in the west.
We’re about ready to start a brand new school all over again. What we have never done before, though, is the 2015-2016 school year. We have brand new freshmen, some new teachers, new support staff, and all of the students, parents and staff returning to Cibola will experience new chances to succeed and learn. Truly, for every Cibola Cougar, this year is new and innovative. Every high interest opportunity comes with an energetic sponsor, a guide to building future skills and interests. Get involved Cibola!
This year, our school will continue to build academic confidence beginning with our own confidence in our students’ potential and interests.
Welcome to our new school year. New means a fresh start, a strong continuance, renewal and opportunity. I urge you to become involved in education with and for our most fundamentally valuable resource, our students.
Thank you for your dedication to the Home of the Cougars. We are embarking on the next segment of our educational journey. Let’s Go Cougars!
Pamela Meyer, Cibola High School Principal
