Dear Temescal Canyon High School Students and Families,
I want to welcome you to the 2016 / 2017 school year. This is a very special year for me as it is my fifth year as principal. This means that I have been the only high school principal these students have had. I consider myself very lucky to be able to watch them come into our school as eager, young, wide eyed freshman, and leave as seniors, beautiful, intelligent, young adults ready for all the world has to offer.
This is going to be another wonderful and exciting school year. We look forward to seeing our athletes on the field giving their all to represent Temescal Canyon. We look forward to the amazing dances put on by our ASB, and to the dramatic and comedic shows from our drama department. We look forward to the sound of music coming from our band and to the cheers and shouts from our cheerleaders. We look forward to the strong leadership of our class officers and we look forward to the creations from those in the arts. We look forward to learning and growing and putting education and school above all, as we strive to better ourselves in each and every class and we look forward to seeing our new selves.
We have an amazing team of professional educators here to do whatever it takes to ensure that each and every student is able to set meaningful goals, be given the tools to achieve their dreams and soar higher than they ever imagined they could. Our teachers are committed to academic excellence and the daunting task of educating the students at Temescal Canyon High School.
Everyone on this site is committed to the success of our students and, as the saying goes, it does “Take a village to raise a child.” We are lucky to have the support of not only our amazing professional educators, but we have the support of our dedicated front office staff, health office staff, and library staff. We have support from our strong custodial staff and our caring campus supervisors. We have the support of our energetic para educators and our creative cafeteria staff. We have grounds keepers who keep Temescal Canyon beautiful and we have a team of coaches that are the absolute best. Each and every student who walks through our gates is cared for by a large contingency of adults ready to make sure their experience here leaves positive memories that last a lifetime.
As we embark on yet another wonderful school year, I am excited to see what is in store. Time will fly and in a blink of an eye, our seniors will be walking across the stage, graduating. It is important that we cherish each and every minute and each and every experience. Being a true Titan is nothing short of amazing, and to all of you Titans and Titan families….welcome to TC 2016/2017!!!
