Dear Warrior Family,
I am so excited to start another year with you as the principal of Buckeye Trail High School. The 2023-2024 school year is going to be a year full of challenges and growth. Remember, your high school experience is what you make of it. You are in the driver’s seat, and you will decide the outcome.
My challenge for you this school year is to know your specific pathway and where you are currently, with regards to that plan. To do so, I ask that you constantly reflect on the following questions:
All faculty and staff at Buckeye Trail High School are excited to walk with you along your journey through high school. However, you are the captain of your ship! You should expect nothing but excellence from yourself and the work you put forth throughout your years at Buckeye Trail High School. You will control your success through the choices you make. It is true that the people you allow to enter your circle will impact your future. Make sure you are surrounding yourself with individuals who will help you be the best version of yourself and encourage you to strive for excellence.
To all our proud parents and caregivers, I invite you to model and partner with us throughout the school year as we shape and support our young people. Research shows that teenagers will have the greatest possibility for success if support structures are in place at home. Together, we can make this a year full of memories and growth.
