College Park High School's Principal’s Corner

Principal’s Corner 

“Welcome home” is something you often hear me say when greeting students, staff and community members, and it’s usually returned with a “thank you” or a smile. We all have the same mission for College Park High School, and that is to make it the best possible experience for everyone who crosses our front gate. One goal in my 90-day entry plan was for our community to be better informed of all the great happenings at CPHS, so this is the perfect opportunity to advertise our stellar website (cphs.mdusd.org/) and Twitter handle (@CPHSfalcons) to update you on all our great events and exciting news.  

This holiday season, I’d like to show my gratitude and appreciation for my students, staff, and community for making my transition the best it could be! Your overwhelming support, kindness, and overall helpfulness have made a very busy fall semester a fun one. 

The three things I ask of our entire student body are:

1)   Get engaged in your education (come prepared each day to learn and ask questions)

2)   Get involved (whether as an athlete, musician, vocalist, craftsperson or drama). Research shows you’ll have a more productive and fun experience in school the more involved you are.

3)   Have a plan. When the going gets tough (as I assure you it will), what will you do? Where will you seek guidance?

With regard to having a plan, we have a Wellness Center on campus. It houses four marriage and family interns supervised by a licensed clinician. Each clinician has a caseload of students they see on a regular basis, helping them be the best they can be during what may be the most trying time of their lives. 

Lastly, how can you get involved and share your great ideas with CPHS? We will be going through WASC (Western Accreditation for School and Colleges) in March. I will send out a survey to our community to see how we are doing with current initiatives and elicit feedback on our overall product. Please “follow” us on Twitter and our webpage as I will be posting the link for feedback very soon. I also will be holding regular “Cup of Joe With Principal Joe” visits. Please feel free to stop by and hear about all the great things happening at CPHS in greater detail and ask any questions you might have. 

 

With Appreciation,

Joseph G. Alvarez

Principal
