THE PRINCIPAL CHRONICLES - JOSH MILLER

 

The Principal Chronicles continue ... As I write this, it's a strange May blizzard outside and it took me 94 minutes to get to work. Super fun way to start the day. (That even rhymes). Yesterday I was sitting at Echo Park Stadium in the warm sunshine watching the amazing students from Chaparral High School graduate. It was such a wonderful ceremony and every year I walk away with high spirits. It is always one of my most favorite days of the school year.

Speaking of favorite days, my other favorite day of the year is coming up tomorrow. STEAM Day!!! Our teachers and students have been working non-stop creating and preparing for STEAM Day. It is going to be an incredible experience and I am very excited to see everything that is going on. We have various habitats in primary, rocks in third, Mars in fourth, prosthetics in fifth, and a boatload of empathy in sixth. Every place you go in our building you will learn something from our students. I can't wait for tomorrow.

That is it for this week's edition, May is such a busy time of year, I almost forgot. I want to give a big shout out to Today's Nursery. They HOOKED us up with just about everything we needed plant wise for our garden habitats. They are super close to our school so if you have any gardening needs please return the favor they gave to us. See you all at STEAM Day!! Until next time when the Principal Chronicles continues.....

A fairly new partnership between DCSD’s Prevention & School Culture team and Douglas County Teen Court coordinators is providing a new path for youth offenders. Additionally, Sources of Strength— now present in most DCSD high schools and some middle schools— is establishing a healthy culture and climate with the goal of catching youth long before they fall into unhealthy behaviors or consider taking their own lives.
