Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!

I hope that you have enjoyed your summer vacation and that it was filled with some downtime as well as fun and exciting memories with family and friends.  I am thrilled to welcome each of you back to a new school year full of possibilities for learning and growing. I am very excited to start year lucky thirteen in the Leavenworth School District.  Over the past twelve years I have had a chance to get to know many of you and your families.  I look forward to continuing to build strong relationships with each of you throughout this upcoming year.  During my tenure, Leavenworth High School has had many successes and we will continue to build on the strengths of the Pioneer family in this great building.

As we enter this new school year, the state board of education along with our local board of education have given us the green light to LAUNCH our school and students to a new height in their educational experience at LHS.  Our vision and continued growth with the implementation of AVID, PBL and the LINK Grant are preparing us as we launch into the 2019-2020 school year.

The start of a new year for me is always very exciting, but can also bring some fear. There is a quote I found on social media and have reposted before, writer unknown but it goes like this: “If it excites you and scares you at the same time, it might be a good thing to try.”  I know that with the dedication, hard work and creativity you all will bring to the classroom, amazing results will follow. I can’t wait to work with each of you throughout the year as we  “Boldly Go Where No School Has Gone Before”.   We are the Pioneers!
A couple of important dates as we begin the year:

*New Parent Information Night/Fall Sports Information Night: Monday, August 12 at 6:00 p.m./7:00 p.m. in the LHS Auditorium *Freshmen/New Student Orientation: Wednesday, August 14 from 7:50 - 11:00 a.m. (no buses or school lunches) *First Full Day of School for All Students: Thursday, August 15 from 7:50 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. *First Day of Fall Sports Practice: Monday, August 19 *Open House: Tuesday, August 27 at 6:00 p.m. *Senior Information Night: Monday, September 23 at 6:00 p.m. Please let us know any questions you have, and we will see you in the halls of LHS very soon!  

In Pioneer Pride,
