Edward Owusu  


Principal's Weekly Update

Good Morning Clarksburg High School Families!

Week of Nov. 20-24, 2017

This is Edward Owusu with news and information for the coming week.  

This Monday, Unidos, our Latin Dance Team will compete in the 18th Annual MCPS Latin Dance Competition. This team of current students and alumni have been working hard under the direction of Ms. Aguilar and Ms. Zapata. Let's cheer them on tomorrow. The event will begin at 7 pm at Strathmore Arts Center. 

On Tuesday, The PTSA will meet in the Media Center. The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm. 

This Wednesday is an Early Release Day as well as Report Card distribution day. School will end at 12:00.

Giving back through service to the community is a core value that takes personal example to become rooted in a student's fabric of being. During this holiday season, the Coyote Ambassadors and a generous benefactor have donated dinner meals to families in need. Student leadership, such as this, encourages their peers to serve at area community food banks, as well as other giving events. Students interested in participating in Breakfast with Santa on December 9 may see Ms. Eader in room 112 and earn SSL hours along the way. These are just a few ways we set the example of the importance of service to others.

School will be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday Thursday and Friday. Students will return to school on Monday, November 27th. 

Did you now that the daily announcements broadcasts to students are also listed on our website. Keep up to date with news by checking this resource. 

There are many activities going on in our Career Center. Please see the email version of this message for details. 

I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday with you and your family.
