Welcome to 4th Quarter 2020
We look forward to
sharing a lot of information each quarter. We will do our best to highlight athletics, activities, concerts, and student recognition throughout the year.
We want to make sure everyone is informed of
all that Boise High students enjoy.
Hello Boise High Families:
I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the nice
weather. Although we have completed the 2019-2020
school year, I wanted to take one last opportunity to wish
everyone well and pass along my heartfelt appreciation.
Thank you for helping keep our community connected
during the uncertain times of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Thank you for your understanding while we have learned
to navigate all things Boise High under unique
circumstances. Thank you to all our graduates and families
who participated in our Turn the Tassel Celebration two
weeks ago. Our faculty, staff and parent board had a
wonderful time celebrating the accomplishments of the
graduating class of 2020! We wish all of our graduating
seniors the very best as they move on to their next chapter.
The Faculty and Staff are working hard to reflect, learn and
plan in preparation for the 2020-2021 school year. As
educators we commit ourselves to this annual cycle of
preparation, emotion, and the joy of watching our students
learn, grow, flourish and eventually leave. Each year brings
great excitement, the comfort of routine, and the realization
that there is a distinct beginning and a definitive end. The
cycle was certainly different this year, as is our planning for
next school year.
As we take the appropriate time to wish our seniors
well as they head off to their next adventure, we are
welcoming incoming sophomores. In addition, as we say
good-bye to colleagues who distinguished careers at Boise
High draw to a close, we meet new colleagues who are
excited to have the privilege and opportunity for a career
at Boise High. We honor the following Boise High Staff
members who are embarking on a different phase in life;
Dr. Carol Scholz (Teacher of the Visually Impaired), Cathy Brown (Social Studies Teacher),
and Paula Crowther (Library Assistant) who are all retiring after many years serving the
students of Boise High. Additionally, we bid farewell to Melinda Schulz (Debate Teacher)
who is moving into a new phase of her professional career. You will all be missed!
I would like to encourage all of you to keep an eye out for email, announcements
and communication from the Boise School District and Boise High regarding next school
year. As we learn more as to how things will look and what will be implemented in terms
of guidelines, we will be communicating with students, parents and faculty.
On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, I would like to thank our Brave Parent Board
and the members of the Booster Organization who have provided tremendous support
throughout the year, including the many wonderful teacher appreciation lunches. And to
all of the parents and families who do so much for the students and staff of Boise High;
thank you as well. As I draw near the close of my fifth year as principal of this incredibly
special place, I swell with pride and realize just how fortunate I am to be one small part
of the educational experience of so many exceptional people. It is with an incredible
sense of gratitude that I thank this years' senior class. I am humbled by how much I have
learned from each and every one of these fine young people, and I will miss them dearly.
The resilience, strength, and leadership of this graduating class is incredible. I have great
faith that our future is safe. Wishing for you all to stay safe and healthy as I look forward
to seeing you soon. Every day is great day to be The Brave...

"We are a part of a
community that fosters
the distinctive attributes
that come with being a
high school student.
Additionally, among the
personalities at Boise
High, we all share
that encompass who we
are as a student body.
We are all students. We
are friends. We are
individuals. We are not
the same in every aspect
that represents what it
means to be BRAVE, but
each of our respective
traits are what make us
who we are. We are
athletes. We are
musicians. We are
leaders. Some of these
things will never change,
no matter who we
become or where life
takes us. We are
committed to excellence.
We are Boise. We are
Brave. And we couldn't
be prouder. "
