A Message from Our Superintendent
I would like to start off by giving my sincere Thanks to former School Board President, Gerold Green, for his service to the students and staff of Cloudcroft Schools. He was a Board member and then Board president for a total of 13 years. He will be missed by all! Thank you, Mr. Green, for your dedication to our Cloudcroft students’ success!
Mentioning our students’ success, I would like to congratulate High School students Sage Greenwood, Xander Newton, Emma Yarbrough, Gunner Wolfe, Cyrus Lewis, and Charles Sears who competed at the NM Governor's STEM Challenge in Albuquerque last month. These students created an app that supports addiction recovery through video games. Their project won a sponsorship from Anchorum Health Foundation, and each student brought home $500! Way to bring home the win, Cloudcroft Bears!
Our Cheer Team also competed in the Ram Spirit Classic Competition in Portales last month. This was their first competition in a few years and first under Coach Trela. They performed well! We look forward to an exciting future for these student-athletes. Great job, Ladies!
The Elementary/Middle school On-A-Roll assembly was also last month. I am so proud of all of our students. We have such a climate for success in our district and it shines at these assemblies. Way to go, Cloudcroft Students!
We are starting off February with “Meet the Professionals”. It will be held at the High School for 8th–12th graders on February 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This has been a very successful event for our students. It affords them the opportunity to learn about different careers from professionals in our community.
Basketball is still going strong with lots of games scheduled for this month. Come out and cheer our Bears on.
Powerlifting practice is underway, and we have a great group of students participating in this sport again this year! The schedule is on the website with the first meets starting this month.
Track and Field will be starting in March. The schedule will be on our website soon.
We are excited to invite everyone out to the PTO sponsored Valentine’s Day Family Dance on Friday, February 16 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Middle School Gym. We hope to see you there. Parents, let’s show these kids how it’s done!
I started out this month with our School Board and will end with it. I would like to welcome new Board member, Jeff Eigenmann. He was sworn in last month and will be a great addition to an already dynamic and hardworking Board of Education. Thank you, Mr. Eigenmann, for being part of our Bear Family!
