Principal's Message

Greetings Hook Junior High School Students!!

Welcome to Hook Junior High-- Home of Wrangler Nation! My name is Carlos Cerna, and I am extremely humbled and honored to have this opportunity to serve as your Principal.  As we prepare for a very promising 2022-2023 school year, I am happy to report that our entire staff is very excited and has been working very hard to prepare for your arrival to our campus.  This past school year was unlike any other year, and we are looking forward to seeing and supporting ALL of you on campus and in our classrooms.  

Our staff is committed to serving all students in a variety of ways that is guided by our Mission Statement: “To prepare all students for high school and beyond both academically and socially in a safe and fun environment where students want to learn and grow. Providing long lasting memories to enhance their future life and that of others by becoming productive members of our society.”  Our staff continues to plan and organize a variety of academic courses, activities, and programs that will enhance the educational learning environment for all Hook Junior High students.  In addition to teaching Common Core Standards, it is our desire to foster what is best in all our students to become college and career ready upon graduation from high school, and we are happy to know that students have the capacity and willingness to accept the challenge.  

As we prepare our ‘students for high school and beyond’, it is important that students also continue to take the necessary steps to help themselves become successful.  Students that make positive choices, remain respectful, responsible, engage, and participate in their learning, study well, do their homework, and attend school regularly not only continue to honor their family but will also greatly increase their chances in becoming a college-bound student upon graduating from high school.  Each student is at that point where you can begin to build a solid educational foundation to prepare them.  It will take commitment, dedication, and hard work, but YOU CAN DO IT!!! 

Lastly, as you continue to work hard, make positive choices, and prepare for your future, we also encourage each Hook Junior High School student to get involved as we hope that your experience is filled with many positive memories, experiences, and great friends. 

 If you have questions please contact the main office, and we will direct your call to the right person.

Here’s to an excellent 2022- 2023 school year!  Go Wranglers!!
