Letter from Principal Callahan

Dear Drury Students and Families,

Community is the overarching theme at Drury High School. Drury’s Values and Beliefs statement identifies that “the entire school community must facilitate a student-centered learning environment characterized by equity, personalization, collaboration, and engagement.” The statement also describes learning as “a collaborative process of continual student growth.” The “school community” is far more than what we can see within Drury High School.

Our school community is the parent volunteers who help measure the distance of a javelin throw at a freezing track meet. Our school community is the local professionals who visit 7/8 Academy classrooms to teach students about career exploration with the Junior Achievement program. Our school community is the adult mentors working with the YMCA to help at-risk students. Our school community is the high school student mentors working with UMass and 4-H to provide support for struggling learners. Our school community is MASS MoCA, the Clark Art Museum, and the Williams Museum of Art who engage students in Creating a Culture of Respect. The list goes on.

We are all Drury High School and we must continue to collaborate for continual student growth. All of us. Every day.

Thank you for your support of our students and your continued contributions to the Drury High School community.

 

Sincerely,

Timothy R. Callahan
