Dear Parents and Guardians:
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to a new school year. High school is an extremely important time for adolescents -- a time for growth, maturity, and preparation for the responsibilities of adulthood. Working with you and your child, we look forward to many and varied learning experiences, positive social interactions, and a year of productive relationships among all members of our school community. CityLab High School is committed to the concept that a child's education is the product of the school and home. We believe that a strong partnership between school and your family will result in success for your child. You can help with this partnership in many ways. By regularly showing interest in your child's schoolwork, asking questions, and giving praise for accomplishments, you can reinforce what the school is trying to accomplish. Similarly, stressing the need for regular attendance conveys to your child the importance of school.
As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students and parents-are respected and welcomed into our community. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.
Every student, given the right tools, support and environment, is capable of succeeding and exceeding their expectations. With the proper resources, and the flexibility to adapt and differentiate instruction, we can successfully involve students in the learning process and provide them with the right tools to successfully transition to the next opportunity they face.
My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to meeting you all.
Dr. Stacey Mulligan
