Welcome to Mission High School. Home of the Mighty Mission Eagles. And welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. The beginning of every school year is usually marked with excitement and possibility.
While this may be one of the most difficult of circumstances, it is through the strength in our faith, the unity of our family, and the solidarity of our community that we lean on to face these challenges together to make this school year just as memorable as any other for our students.
Together with our dedicated and experienced staff, Mission High School’s efforts are concentrated on making this a positive learning experience. We are committed to help our students look beyond the obstacles of remote learning and instead to be inspired to embrace the opportunities to be innovative.
It is during the times of greatest adversity that legends are made and legacies built. And so we turn to hometown Hall of Fame legend Tom Landry and a quote that inspired him to persevere, “the quality of a person‘s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence.”
Students we ask you to begin this school year with a commitment to excellence and strive to exemplify EAGLE Pride in everything you do! As you begin this new grade level, we challenge you to work towards creating the legacy you want to be remembered for.
Strive to become servant leaders and contribute to your community. Most importantly, be patient, kind, and loyal to your parents, your friends and family.
You have proven to the world you are resilient, innovative, and can persevere through school closure. Now it’s time to flourish and face the new school year with conviction to succeed. Focus on your goals and your future. Walk in to it with renewed strength. Mount up with wings like EAGLES to step into your future with purpose, vision, passion, faith, and most importantly, hope.
Parents, as you face the uncertainty of our new world, one we have not experienced, we ask you support your children with what they need most – your guidance, support and love. Partner with us to help them succeed. Our best advice is to ask them what would help them most and ensure they know you will listen.
We thank our educators for taking on the challenges of Remote Learning. This is not an easy feat by any means and so we are thankful for your commitment to our students’ success. We challenge you to continue to guide students on the path to achieve greatness and soar high like Eagles.
Representing Mission High School with Eagle Pride is not just a phrase. It embodies long lived traditions and core values visible throughout the campus which include: Encourage everyone, Assist others, Give to those in need, Learn from your mistakes, Earn respect, and Strive for success.
Wherever your journey in life may take you, we hope you will always be safe, enjoy the tride, and never forget your way back home to Mission High School.
And remember: Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!
