Parent's Corner

Message from the Principal

Ophelia Sanchez (Principal)    

Welcome back, I hope your summer was wonderful and you are excited for the beginning of the new school year. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, and staff members.  I look forward to meeting our students and their families at our Open House Thursday August 11, 2016, from 5:00 - 7:00pm.

School begins on Thursday, August 11, 2016 at 7:55 am and classroom schedules will be given out on campus that morning. Our first bell will ring at 7:55 am with the second bell at 8:00 am to signal the start of the school day. Dismissal will be at 3:17, after announcements.

I’m very serious about education and I look forward to our partnership to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality learning school experience. As the parent myself, I know the importance of a strong home-school connection. Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can ensure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

I ask that students Respect themselves, Respect their work and Respect their school.  We show respect to ourselves by having a positive and respectful attitude, attire, language and behavior.  We show respect to our work by completing assignments, participating in class and earning passing grades.  We show respect to our school by showing respect to the teachers, the staff, the school building and following school policies and procedures. We do have new policies and procedures in place for our dress code, electric and attendance policy.  Please ensure that you are aware of these changes.  A copy has been provided in the enrollment packets and in our new student/parent handbook.

I believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the students of Crownpoint High School. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community.   All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.

My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment.  I look forward to a great year of learning, community building and success. Please always feel free to contact me, Teresa , or any of our teachers at 505-721-1600, through making an appointment or emails. osanchez@gmcs.k12.nm.us
