Hotchkiss High School Families:

My name is Marty Rover and I am excited to introduce myself as the next principal of Hotchkiss High School. I could not be more excited to hit the ground running and continue building on the outstanding tradition established at HHS. I am eager to bring my experience and skills as a leader to form strong partnerships with students, parents, and community members to ensure the success of all students. I have learned that great schools are the result of great teachers and I am thrilled to get to work with and support the tremendous staff at HHS. I look forward to celebrating the success of our students and staff and continuing the tradition of HHS being a distinguished and valuable part of this community.

Prior to joining HHS I served as an assistant principal at Delta Middle School and a math teacher at Delta High School. I have also coached baseball and golf and officiated high school basketball and baseball. I have been a member of both the DCSD calendar adoption committee and the math curriculum adoption committee. My educational background includes an M.A. in Educational Leadership from the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs and a B.S. in Mathematics-Secondary Education from Colorado Mesa University.

In closing, I have always admired the immense pride and enthusiasm that exists not only at HHS but the community of Hotchkiss as a whole. I look forward to utilizing this attitude to continue to move HHS in a positive and progressive direction. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas to share please do not hesitate to contact me. Once again I could not be more excited for this opportunity and I look forward to becoming a member of the Hotchkiss High School family!

Financial Aid 101 & FAFSA

On Wednesday, October 4th, Hotchkiss High and Western State will host a Financial Aid 101 meeting at 6 PM in the school’s kennel. It will be opened to all parents who are interested. Parents of juniors and seniors will want to attend, especially if it is your first time through the process.

After the financial aid meeting, we will go over our counseling program of Naviance so that you can see what it encompasses. We will also look at your student’s SAT/PSAT scores from last April and discuss what the next steps are.

At the conclusion on the meeting, the senior parents are invited to come to the library and complete their FAFSA id request, and if you bring along your 2016 taxes, you can also complete your son/daughter’s FAFSA.
