May 18th, 2017,

Happy spring! There has finally been a sighting! After all this dreary weather and record rainfall, we are due for some sunny times at CKHS. I hope that second semester is going smoothly for all, and there are a lot of things going in the next few weeks leading up to the big day, Commencement 2017, at 7:00 PM at the Kitsap Sun Pavilion. Families of seniors, please read the Senior Letter on this website carefully as we get closer to the event.

A number of important events are coming up that I want to highlight. First, our Distinguished Scholars evening is coming up on May 23rd at 6:30 PM in the Theater. We will be honoring 56 scholars this year, and congratulations to all of them as they wrap up their careers at CK. One week later, on May 30th, is our Senior Awards Night,. This is always the culmination of recognition for all seniors having done and committing to amazing things from their CK days and their bright futures. That is at 6:30 in the CKHS Main Gym. We hope you can attend.

There is also a series of concerts and performances that are sure to inspire coming up with our Drama productions, Musical Concerts in early June, and a final Choral concert. All the details for those are on our calendar on the home page of the website. Please come out and support Cougar performers as they wrap up their year.

On a final note, you will soon see some construction activity starting on our campus after the last day of school as some demolition of older structures and grading and site preparation begin for the new High School and Middle School. Please visit our construction page on the district homepage to keep up with all of the activity around the district. Additionally, we will be sending home flyers in June with all of our returning students which will detail summer and early fall activities that will be important to all families returning to our campus next year. The future is bright for our school, and there will be some growing pains that go with it over the next two years. Our goal is to keep you informed and keep the Dedication to Excellence continuing as we build for the future! As always, I am available to answer your questions via email, calls, or visits, so please feel free to contact me if you need more information.

Happy Spring!
