2016 Congressional Arts Competition
   "Congressman J. Randy Forbes announced that this year's Congressional Arts Competition winner, representing Virginia's Fourth Congressional District, is Heather Danet...."

  Congratulation to James Garcia Otero
for becoming a National Merit Scholarship Winner

   From approximately 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program, only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists. They were designated on a state representational basis, in proportion to each state's percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors. In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, a Semifinalist had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance. All winners of about 7,400 National Merit Scholarships are chosen from the group of approximately 15.000 distinguished Finalists. CONGRATULATIONS TO JAMES GARCIA-OTERO for this outstanding accomplishment.

Principal's Message

   The 2016 school year is coming to a close. We have officially reached the month of June. There are playoffs being held, scholarship nights, Senior of the Month ceremonies, CTE awards, picnics, and SCA elections… to name a few. Please look over the school calendar on the events page to get details on each. The high school is definitely rolling.

   The overall sentiment is that this school year has definitely moved quickly. It has been such a great school year with support from our Chamber, Moose, Building Trades, and other community groups. Our scholarship night, for instance, typically lasts close to three hours because of the scholarship gifts bestowed upon our graduating class. I always get overwhelmed when I think about the generosity and care given to our kids.

   Highland United Methodist Church is sponsoring our Baccalaureate Service this year. The event is optional, but it is a good opportunity to see our seniors in their gowns and wish them well. The event will take place on Sunday, June 5 th at 3:00.

   The bookends of the school year are always my favorite. There is something so special about the end of the year. The maturity and transition that many of our students have gone through is pretty significant. It all culminates on Thursday, June 16 th at 8 p.m. on our football field. We will be celebrating and honoring our seniors at our commencement ceremony.

   It is a privilege to be the individual awarding graduates their diplomas that night, and it is a privilege serving all of you. I cannot believe I have wrapped up my sixth year as your instructional leader. I wish you each a restful and productive summer.

   With Colonial Pride,
