Principal's Message

Dear parents/guardians,
      On behalf of the faculty and staff at Collierville High School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students achieve their highest potential. I am confident the overall academic experience will be highly intensive while challenging students to journey beyond their comfort zones. It is our mission to provide an enriching, supportive environment designed to promote academic excellence, develop respect for all individuals, and expand the personal interests and talents of our students. This is ultimately our overarching commitment to our students, parents, and the Collierville community.
      We recognize that to be successful in school, our students need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our students’ success and want you to know that we are committed to doing our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she practices the following behaviors:
      ·attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
      ·completes all homework assignments given by teachers
      ·reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
      ·shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
      ·informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
      ·checks PowerSchool and teacher webpages at least once a week to ensure responsibility                  
and ownership for his/her own learning
      In addition to being committed to academics, it is my hope that all students get involved in our school through athletics, music, drama, student leadership, community volunteerism, and school activities and clubs. I also ask that you consider joining our PTSO. Our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations.
      In closing, I thank you for your support, and I look forward to working with you all and pushing our students to the very apex of academic heights. On behalf of the staff of Collierville High, I want to again welcome and thank you in advance for the many great things we will do together this school year.
Roger L. Jones, III
Principal, Collierville High School

Natalie Poorman Participated in the Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall

Natalie Poorman, CHS violinist, was a part of the 2020 High School and Young Adult Honors Performance Series program at Carnegie Hall and the Musikverein this past January! The Finalists hail from 48 U.S. states, Guam, 4 provinces of Canada, Bermuda, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Mexico, Qatar, South Korea, and Taiwan. They had a fantastic weekend rehearsing and performing at Carnegie Hall. Natalie is the first violinist to be selected from the Collierville HS Orchestra and the third string student from our program. Additionally she participated in All-West this past weekend and will be at All-State in April. She is the Concertmaster for our orchestra. She will continue this role as we go into our local competition in Memphis and a National Competition in Chicago in March. She is an active musician and has a very good reputation locally which is earning her paying gigs. Congratulations Natalie! We are so proud!
