Being able to participate in the end-of-year ceremonies across various campuses is one of the most fulfilling aspects of my job. From our Springs Campus YCC students to our High School seniors, we celebrate each milestone with joy.

Ted Talks March/April 2023: Guided by Our Strategic Priorities
Friend of Headwaters and longtime school psychologist, Rob Evans, has taught us that schools, when faced with change, have more in common with religious congregations than they do with companies or other organizations. It’s demonstrated in our commitment to values, mission, and relationships, especially in the important and immeasurable areas of connection and community.

I want to express particular pride in two students who are living the “A” in our PACT by being advocates for Afghan refugee families here in Texas. Yara Hussain (‘23) and Stewart Haas (‘24) were showcased on both Fox 7 and KXAN on December 11 for seeing their Community Leader’s (CLs) project–fundraising to purchase sewing machines to help Afghan refugee women economically support their families and themselves–come to fruition.
Ted Talks January/February 2023: Shining a Spotlight on Three Strategic Priorities
It is easy to be anxious these days, very easy. This has been true many times in human history and it is especially true for those of us in care of children and students–both parents and educators. While it can feel counter-intuitive given the daily demands of the world, it is important for us to think ahead and do our best to imagine what our school could become for current and future students.
