January, 2018

 

Hello Parent and Student Cougars!

 

This has been a fast semester, and now we are hurtling toward a long winter’s break…just in time!  This semester we have undergone a re-roofing to include main offices, library, C, D, E and F halls. The concourse is nearly done, and next semester we’ll begin with re-roofing the PAC and A Hall in January and February, B Hall in February and then the locker rooms, gym offices, auxiliary gyms, and then finally the full gymnasium over the summer.  We’ve experienced some construction dilemmas and some highs and lows in classroom temperature as the new central heating and refrigerated air systems were slowly equalized, and next year, we should have a leak-proof school and comfortable, balanced temperatures in the classrooms.  Thanks everyone for your patience through this project.

 

Speaking of school improvements, Cibola is set to get new LED lights all around the external building, so that we’ll see a more glowing school in dusk and evening hours.  We’ll see some new shade structures and plants in the front entrance area of the school, and we may even….yes…a drumroll, please…see a brand new track be laid down this summer.  We are working on updating audio visual systems in PAC and Gym, are researching what it may take to gain a new marquee for front of school, and whether we can gain support for an updated security camera system for our school.  It’s a 1970’s school, and while we like legacy and tradition, we also need to bring in the new to make our building as strong as our tradition in excellence.

 

Instructionally, we continue to build academic confidence, increase student voice, and enhance achievement proficiency rates year to year.  We are also working to heighten our graduation rate. Our 90 Day Plan is a continuous improvement model that is helping students to comprehend informational, non-fiction text and to work toward better understanding of mathematical, conceptual and reasoning expression as per our PARCC data review which showed two distinct areas for which our students were demonstrating overall less success.  We are actively pursuing oue goals through a distinct action plan in every class this next semester.

 

We are working diligently for and with your students every day, and our greatest imperative is to see our students not just imagine their futures, but visualize a future in which they can see their aspirations form into reality in great and concrete detail.

 

It is with deliberate actions and structured organization that we set out each day to keep all students safe, emotionally and physically, and while events like the recent tragic occurrence at Aztec High School can shake our feelings of security and assurance, please know that you entrust your students into our care each day and we take that responsibility seriously.

 

Thank you for choosing Cibola High School, Home of the Cougars!

 

Season’s Greetings, Principal. Meyer

Letter to the Class of 2018

 

IMPORTANT GRADUATION REMINDERS – CIBOLA CLASS OF 2018

One of the most important things you can do is subscribe to the Class of 2018’s remind.com account. Let’s face it, you don’t listen to announcements, but you do need to stay in the loop in terms of graduation happenings. I will text out important reminders, and I promise that I will not text too often. Text @coogs2018 to 81010 to subscribe.

  • The first senior activity will be the Senior Panoramic Photo. We will take this picture on November 28th, at the beginning of 2nd period in the gym. Senior T-shirts will be given out at this time. There is no charge for the T-shirts. Students will be given information about purchasing the photos during the photography session.
  • Students will be required to be in dress code to participate in Cibola’s commencement ceremonies. The dress code is as follows:
    • White cap and gown with gold stole purchased from campus specialties. They are a local company, located at 1529 Eubank Blvd # B, Albuquerque, NM 87112
    • Campus Specialties was on campus on 9/21 to talk about caps and gowns. If you (or your student) missed this meeting, they can pick up a packet in the Activities Office.
    • You may also order your cap and gown online at campusspecialtiesinc.com
      • After December 1st, the prices may increase. The deadline to purchase is March 1st , 2018.
  • Students must wear a white dress with white dress shoes or black slacks, white dress shirt, black tie, black socks, and black shoes. Questions about attire should be directed to Ms. Chavez.
  • I am still waiting for word as to the dates of senior finals and the last day of school for seniors. As soon as I know, I will let you know.
  • Senior Barbeque is still being planned. You will receive details ASAP. We usually have it after the seniors’ last day of school, and before graduation. Please make sure that you are registered for the remind.com account so that you receive this information. The BBQ is not required, but it is fun, and it is free!
  • Caps and Gowns will be handed out on Wednesday, May 9th at Cibola High School, at 1pm. You cannot receive your cap and gown until your account is clear of all fees. So…pay your fees before May 10th. You can check ParentVue/StudentVue online to pay student fees.
  • On Thursday, May 10th, we will have two activities that are required for all graduating seniors.
  1.    8:30 am – graduation rehearsal
  • Rehearsal will be followed by senior breakfast.
  • You must attend rehearsal, in full graduation attire, or you will not “walk the line”.
  1.    5:30 pm – Honors Assembly
  • At 5:30 pm all graduates must report back to Cibola to get ready for the Senior Awards Assembly.
  • The Awards Assembly begins at 6:30pm. Doors will open at 6:00.
  • Attendance, in full graduation attire, is mandatory.
  • Graduation is Friday, May 11th. The ceremony begins at 6:30 pm at Tingley Coliseum. Graduates will be asked to show up at approximately 4:15 pm. There are no tickets required for admission. Doors open at 5:30. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Noisemakers, glass vases, balloons, and signs are prohibited.

Due to higher class size numbers in most core classes this school year, Cibola High School will not accept transfers for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

We will review our class size numbers in late July or early August, 2017, and consider opening to transfers at that time, and will consider opening again to transfers in January 2018.

 

Students who are already attending at Cibola on previously approved transfers may continue at Cibola.

 

We appreciate your patience as we hold the integrity of the learning environment as our highest priority.
