Principal's Message

Mac Wolf
Eagles, 
  
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  

This school year is off to an incredible start, and I am looking forward to seeing our students continue to progress! It is my commitment to provide every opportunity for our students so that they may leave prepared for their next phase of life.   

At Etiwanda we have many academic initiatives that support students with the aim of achieving our school-wide vision: “All students at Etiwanda will graduate ready for college and career.”  Throughout this school year, we will continue to improve student achievement and classroom instruction by offering a variety of academic support programs which will help to accomplish this vision. This year we are offering new courses, broadening our college preparatory program, increasing student interventions (Academic and Health & Wellness) and continuing to guide students toward meeting the graduation and A-G college requirements. 

Safety will continue to be our highest priority.  I want to thank you for your patience and support as we navigated the difficulties presented by the COVID-19 global pandemic. While conditions and guidelines have shifted, and we can now return to school safely, the pandemic is not over. As a community, we will commit to all safety protocols and be ready to adjust accordingly as the situation or recommendations demand. The pandemic tested our District and our community, and our hearts go out to our staff and our families who suffered from illness, economic hardship, and loss. 

Students, I encourage you to be prepared each day, to be aware of your time and to be connected.  There are many opportunities available to help you stay on track and stay connected to our school. Please reach out to your teachers and counselors for assistance as you strive towards academic success.
   
Parents, the partnership between student, parent, and teachers is essential to every student's academic success. I encourage you to emphasize the importance of daily attendance with your student, communicate often with our teachers and regularly monitor grades and academic progress through Canvas. Together, we will ensure that your child is successful. For further support, please visit the Parent Resources tab to learn more about these opportunities. 

Also, every parent and student are encouraged to utilize Canvas to track student academic progress. We strongly encourage all parents who do not have an account to sign up for this service. This important partnership between student, parent, and teachers is essential to every student's academic success. Another important partnership within our school community is Etiwanda High School Community Connection.  “E-High CC” is made up of parents, staff and community members working together to support all Etiwanda High School stakeholders. I encourage you to participate and be involved in your student’s high school experience. 

I look forward to another amazing school year in the service of our students, parents, and community.   
  
Eagle Pride!
