Purposeful, Engaging, and Respectful: Ingredients for Academic Achievement for All
A Message from Our Principal
Dear Mingus High School Families,
The Mingus team and I welcome our new and returning families to the 2021-22 school year – we hope you are as excited as we are to begin another year of school. As the principal of Mingus Union High School, I am thrilled about the opportunities we have available for our Marauders. I do hope that your student gets involved in school by choosing a club, sport, or activity; we have several to offer!
While the 2020-2021 school year may have been a year of new challenges, we worked through them together. The 2021-2022 school year will be one of opportunities and growth. There will be a “return to normal” as well as a few updates designed to benefit our students and support their success both inside and outside the classroom.
This year we renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do as we seek to provide effective instruction each day with the expectation that all students are capable of success. We believe in our students, and we believe in our ability to educate them. Every Wednesday, we will release students at 1:30 p.m. to allow teachers to participate in Professional Learning Communities focused on student learning. We want the absolute best learning experience for our students.
Please review our student handbook as it’s full of important information. Our bell schedule is now available for the 2021-2022 school year. You may also visit our Calendar page to find all current events.
I encourage you to sign up for access to our Parent Portal through Power School. Parent Portal is a tool that allows parents and students to access real-time information regarding attendance, grades (tests, quizzes, projects, homework assignments), detailed homework assignments, messages from the teacher, and school announcements. You can access this information 24/7, from any computer using your private login information. Your student will also be able to log in to see assignments and grades using their own unique usernames and passwords. Parent Portal is a great tool for staying connected to our school.
I am excited about all that this school year has to offer and look forward to working together to ensure we provide our Marauders the best high school experience possible to be responsible citizens, critical thinkers, and prepared for their endeavors after high school.
The staff and I are here to assist with any questions or concerns that may arise. Please do not hesitate to call or email me anytime. I look forward to building relationships with Marauder families throughout the year.
It’s going to be an amazing year. Thank you for trusting Mingus Union High School with your student’s education.
