PAW PRINTS - November 2018


Principal’s Corner

Welcome back Bulldogs! The school year is off to a strong start and we are excited to have over 1700 students at Ceres High this year. Thank you for entrusting your students to us.

We strive to make improvements each and every year for the benefit of our students and our families. This year, I am very excited to announce our Principal’s Coffee! This event will be held each month in the Ceres High School Library. All parents/guardians are welcome to attend. This is a great opportunity to interact with the Principal of Ceres High and be informed on everything that is occurring at your student’s school while enjoying a cup of coffee and a donut. Our first Principals Coffee was at the end of August and we had 12 parents/guardians attend. I was very encouraged by this and would love to see more of you at our next meeting on November 27th at 1:00 pm! Superintendent, Dr. Scott Siegel, will be joining us to present on the benefits of continuing higher education.

Also, be sure to sign up for Parent Square!

We look forward to partnering with you this school year to maximize every student’s potential. It’s always a great day to be a BULLDOG!


Linda Stubbs, Principal

The student and guardian must meet with his/her Learning Director at least 7 school days prior to the scheduled absence and complete the independent study contract. It will be the students’ responsibility to speak with their teachers to collect any homework. All work must be submitted on the day that the student returns in order to receive credit.
