    Small Group, In-person Instruction Dates 

    We will continue to bring in small groups of students for in-person instruction on Wednesdays in December. The two days students will be transported to campus are December 2nd and December 16th.  


    Wednesday, December 9th: Staff Training Day 

    There will be no classes, open labs or small group instruction on Wednesday, December 9th as this is a staff training day. Students will have asynchronous work to do as well as any missing assignments that need to be turned in before progress reports (December 10th). Students are highly encouraged to use this day to complete all assignments and get caught up in their classes. 


    December Progress Reports 

    Our monthly ALE Progress Report happens early this month! Students need to have all work submitted to teachers by December 9th to be included in this month’s progress report. Teachers will be compiling progress reports on Thursday, December 10th. 


    Winter Break 

    The last day of school before Winter Break begins is Friday, December 18th. Winter Break is December 21 - January 1, 2021. School will resume on Monday, January 4th. Have a wonderful Winter vacation--stay safe and healthy! 


    We wish you and your family a great month and a wonderful holiday season. Hang in there, we know online learning has its challenges, but we will get through this. Continue to wear your masks, maintain social distance and use lots of hand sanitizer. We all have a part in making sure we stay safe and healthy. Enjoy the next three weeks of school and then your two-week break!

Principal's Message

    • Dear Students, Parents and Guardians:

      As Principal of Challenger High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year. Challenger High Schools offers students a choice. For a number of reasons, students and parents may choose a non-traditional setting for students and Challenger is a wonderful option for many students and their families. We are happy that you have chosen Challenger as your high school! 

      We have a highly qualified staff who are very experienced in working with students in an Alternative Education setting. I am very proud of our teachers and support staff and their support of students helps many to reach their goal of graduating from high school in a timely manner. The staff of Challenger High School are dedicated to the success of every student, every day.  Challenger High School renewed its accreditation through AdvancED in the spring of 2018 and the staff continues to work on improving the programs offered. 

      This year, we are very excited to announce that the new Challenger High School is currently open for students and staff to use! Phase 1 of the new building contains new administrative and support staff offices, a commons area for students to use, a physical education studio, an art classroom and state-of-the-art science lab. Planning for Phase 2 of the new building and campus remodel is currently underway!

      Parent involvement is a vital key to Alternative Education and for the success of students at Challenger. We encourage parents to monitor student progress regularly. We send out progress reports (monthly) and report cards (quarterly) and we encourage parents to download and use the Skyward App to monitor their student’s progress. Parents are welcome to set up appointments to meet with me and discuss the progress of their students at any time. Students find greater success when parents are involved and monitoring their progress and attendance throughout the year. 

      The entire staff Challenger is working towards the same goal - provide an opportunity for each student to succeed and to complete requirements for graduation. We welcome your suggestions and questions. Thank you for being part of our school’s community. 

      You may contact me or make an appointment by calling 253.683.6889. I look forward to the 2020-21 school year and working with the students, the staff and the parents of Challenger High School.
