The 2016-2017 school year at Margaretta High School proved to be a year of MIGHT, students taking on big tasks and overcoming them. Students have taken on some MIGHTY tasks that are representative of our great school seal. The four core areas of our school seal signify a balanced educational life. By the way, if you are not familiar with our school seal that is displayed in the Gym, Main Office, and now on our new podium designed and built by our very own students, these four core areas include academics, athletics/extra-curricular, fine arts, and leadership.

Our students have shown to be MIGHTY in their academics by earning 636 credit hours of college credit through college credit plus or AP classes. The senior class also earned $515,118 in scholarship money. The future looks bright for our newest graduates as 75% will be attending college, 24% will be entering the workforce, and 1% is entering the military.

Our students have been MIGHTY in athletics through tournament action in several sports including sectional, district, and state championships.

Our students have been MIGHTY in the fine arts by earning their way to state band competition, earning many art awards at the 5-County Art Show and Regional Governor's Show. They have earned numerous state and national FFA awards.

Our students have been extremely MIGHTY with their leadership skills, especially their work within the community. They raised thousands of dollars for Relay for Life, volunteered for Big Brothers, Big Sisters, conducted many activities for our elementary and middle school students, assisted shut-ins within our own community with clean up and home maintenance, helped with beautification efforts at our own school, and planned and participated in anti-drug and anti-bullying workshops.

I am only touching the surface of the MIGHT of our students. It is up to each of us to continue to support our students and one another in these core areas that help lead to success. Strength comes with some failures along the way. It is important to reflect back to our seal to evaluate where we are and where we are going as a school district and as a community. Families, our school district, community, nation, and global economy are all depending on our students to continue to develop and strengthen their four core areas.

As I reflect each day as your middle/high school principal, I am truly honored and blessed. You see, we need each other in this school district and community. That is why it is SO important to never forget WE ARE MARGARETTA!!
