Words from High School

José Menéndez
High School Principal

Finishing Strong


The end of the year is always filled with assemblies, exams, and moments where students reminisce of their time at CDS when they receive their yearbooks.  It is also a time where the final piece of knowledge and skills are being taught to culminate the year. Finishing strong is important. It allows one to feel good about how they finished instead of how they began.  Finishing strong can set you up for success the following year as those habits will carry on to the following year.

I encourage each and every student to finish this school year strong.  Meet with teachers to be sure all assignments have been turned in. Set up times to review material in preparation for final exams with friends and teachers.  And finally, study!

Here’s to finishing the school year strong!
