    Reading & Rocking Family Literacy Night

    Reading & Rocking Family Literacy Night is a great opportunity to share the love of reading with parents, students, younger children, and faculty.  The event also allow for special activities such as Parent Technology Night.  For more information visit the Parent and Community Involvement Page.     To view more photos please click on this link:  Reading and Rocking Nov. 2015  


    This school year has gotten off to a great start!  Did you know that students who attend school regularly are more likely to graduate and find good jobs?  In fact, a high school graduate makes, on average, a million dollars more than a dropout over a lifetime.  Your education is like money in the bank! 

    Tips to make the most of your education:

    ·       Attend all classes, every day, ON TIME.

    ·       Make time to meet with teachers when you don’t understand the material.

    ·       When you must miss school, be sure to bring in excuses within 48 hour after you return and get any missed work from your teachers. 

    ·       If you miss more than 8 days in a yearlong course or 4 days in a semester course, you may lose credit!  There MAY be options for credit recovery, but it is easier to get it done during designated class times.

     Remember students, at C. A. Johnson, Attendance Matters!

    From The Principal's Desk

    Welcome to Hornet Nation!

    It is indeed a privilege and with extreme pleasure that I serve as your principal for the 2015-2016 school year.  Here at C.A. Johnson High School we are dedicated to providing each student with a high quality education along with the opportunity to engage in multiple extra-curricular activities that will meet both their needs and interests.  As your principal, I charge each and every student with the challenge of getting fully engaged in our school to take full advantage of the CAJ experience.  Full engagement in your high school experience will afford you the opportunity to make your high school life successful, pleasurable, and most importantly meaningful.  I conclude that every student that enters this campus has the ability and potential to accomplish great things and go very far in life. Starting with the first days of school, I shared my vision for students, “E3= Excelling and Exceeding Expectations!”  I am proud of the progress we have made toward achieving this vision, but there is still much work left to do.  I want you to continue focusing on academic excellence and achievement as we progress toward attaining our vision by this school year’s close.

    I am excited about the future of C.A. Johnson High School and look forward to embracing both the challenges and rewards of tomorrow.  As a Hornet Family, we will continue to be resilient and pursue innovative ways to reach academic greatness along with finding ways to ignite, instill, and inspire “Hornet Pride” and traditions. 

    Always remember………We may be small in size (The Hornet), but we are big on performance (Excelling)!  We ARE up for the challenge…

    Let’s invite everyone to: “Feel the Sting!”
