Greetings from Dr. Bending

Greetings Parents, Students, and Community Members:

As principal, I feel it is important that all stakeholders have an understanding of my leadership values and goals for Hampshire High School in the 2017-2018 school year:

2017-2018 Goals:  Continuous school wide student academic growth is always our number one goal.  We will increase our capacity to collaborate with student achievement data, and use effective instructional strategies in the classroom. We will also to continue to improve our school expereince for our students and work environemnt for our staff.  A major focus this year will be learning and growing as a school in a 1:1 environment as we deploy chromebooks to every student. 

Leadership Values:  I believe that all of our students can learn and be successful.  I believe in the transformative power of collaboration: working in teams for continuous improvement.  I believe in helping others become successful and building leadership from within an organization.  I believe that common assessments and effective use of student acheivement data should drive instructional decision making.  I believe that teaching is both an art and a science, and we have to excel at both.  I believe that athletics, activities, and the arts play a vital role in shaping our identity as a high school community.  Most importantly, I believe that successful high schools are built through successful relationships amongst students, teachers, parents, administrators and the community we serve.

Please know that I am available to address any concerns or answer any questions you may have.   Feel free to contact me at the phone number or e-mail address below.  Go Whips!
