Greg Schwab Opinion Column Issue 7

By Principal Schwab

May 1, 2012

It happens every year about this time.  Students struggle with classwork, they fall behind on big projects or major assignments, grades in classes begin to suffer, and a certain administrator’s hair becomes greyer and greyer (oh, but this really isn’t about me). A couple of these examples with the...

What to expect – Greg Schwab Column Issue 5

February 14, 2012

Now that we’re into the second semester of the school year, the next thing we get to start working on is registration for 9th, 10th and 11th graders. The registration process is really critical to us as we use this information to help us determine which classes we are going to offer and how many sections...

  I can’t believe that we’re already at Winter Break. We have just a couple more weeks of school then it’s time to take a break and enjoy the holidays. There is always so much going on here a Terrace that it’s hard to keep track sometimes but here are some of the highlights: Schedule Change Comi...

I have had a few things on my mind lately that I wanted to pass along, so here it goes: I must admit, I was more than a little bothered by the last edition’s editorial where it was pointed out that the MTHS Admin team is now comprised of all men and that this gender imbalance could cause female students...

You know, I have to be the first to admit that speakers who travel to schools and do all school assemblies can sometimes miss the mark with their motivational messages. Dream big, reach for the stars, believe and achieve. All really good messages but somehow they don’t seem to inspire the way that...

Wow. Summer went by really fast. But that’s ok because I am really excited to be back in school again and ready to take on another school year. There are many changes that have taken place over the summer to get our school ready for this year. Some changes involve people and some changes involve stuff. First,...

Dancing is too dirty

By Principal Schwab

April 26, 2011

I chaperoned Tolo a couple of Fridays ago and I must admit, I was not too thrilled with the amount of really inappropriate dancing going on.  While we don’t like being the dance police, we need to continue working at making our school environment more appropriate and this goes for our dances as well. ...

Goodbye, class of ’10

By Principal Schwab

June 15, 2010

It probably seemed like the day would never come. The last few weeks have been long and filled with the challenges of school work, senior project presentations, final exams. But you are at the end of it all. The days of school “because you have to” are coming to a close and with this closing of...

Here we go again… a word from Mr. Schwab

By Principal Schwab

May 13, 2010

For the past couple of years at around this same time of the school year, we have had the difficult challenge of creating a school program that operates on less funding than we had the year before. This year is no different. Again, we are faced with some significant challenges in funding that will have...

Don’t let it overwhelm you

By Principal Schwab

April 14, 2010

We’re close to the end of the school year and most likely the amount of work on your plate is starting to increase significantly for you, as it is for me.  Senior Project, essays to write, math homework, test, quizzes, family obligations, jobs—all these things tend to impact you as they do for other...

Senior year should be fun, right?

By Principal Schwab

March 3, 2010

Standing out in front of the school this week, I was enjoying one of our sunny afternoons. The warm weather reminded me of the fact that spring is just around the corner, if not here already, so it is time for few common sense reminders for all of us. Go to your classes. Seems simple enough, right? But...

How to disagree

By Principal Schwab

January 14, 2010

I was looking through my files in preparation for writing my letter to all of your for the upcoming edition of The Hawkeye and I came across something I wrote last year about building relationships with your teachers. As I reread this, it got me to thinking about some situations I have been involved...
