Principal's Message

 
      Welcome to Citrus Hills Intermediate School for the 2013-2014 school year.  As we begin another year, we continue to experience new things throughout our school.  Due to changes with our school district boundaries, we welcome our smallest incoming class of 7th graders to date and will have an approximate enrollment of 1,100 students.  While we are still a large intermediate school we will continue to explore ways to ensure the success of all our students by continuing to offer a variety of structures to support our students. 
 
      To foster better communication and support for our students and their families, we are organized into 7 general education interdisciplinary teams (3 per grade level and 1 split team).  Each team is comprised of a Language Arts, Math, History, & Science teacher who share a common group of students.  At its most basic level, each team utilizes their common planning time to coordinate team activities (e.g., homework, tests, schedules, special projects), integrate curriculum, monitor student success, and communicate with parents. Additionally, we provide numerous student support opportunities for our students: intervention classes, lunch academy, after-school study hall, academic Saturday school, and enrichment opportunities.  We continue to offer numerous curricular and co-curricular programs to ensure high school success and begin preparation for college and career. 

      I encourage all of our students and parents to get involved in your school.  For our students, we offer a wide variety of social and academic programs (band, choir, ASB, yearbook, PALS, AVID, and many others) that will enhance their intermediate school experience.  I encourage our parents to continue to actively participate in the education of their child by joining PTSA, Booster clubs, and participate in our school many activities to support our students. 

      Our staff is committed to ensuring the success of our students and school.  We look forward to having you and your student help us contribute to our future successes.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact myself or any of our fabulous staff members.  Have a wonderful 2013-2014 school year!

Sincerely,

Andrew Roberts

Principal, Citrus Hills Intermediate School
