Principal, Ryan Stockton   Assistant Principal, Richard Parris
Ryan StocktonDear Students, Staff, Families, Community, and Alumni of Chowchilla Union High School, my name is Ryan Stockton, and I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to join this extraordinary school community. To serve as principal of Chowchilla Union High School is to assume the responsibility of upholding the exemplary qualities that define this wonderful school and a calling to build on a school culture that nurtures and prepares our young people to pave their way and shape their future. It is a great responsibility that again I am grateful to have and fulfill. Our school's mission “to promote a school-wide culture of higher education, lifelong learning, professional behavior, effort, and individual accountability." resonates deeply with me. It is my aspiration to see our young people serve as scholars engaged in spirited interactions that broadens their perspectives and prepares them for their future goals. Our students can explore their interests in a variety of ways to fit their interests through clubs and activities, participate in athletics, cultivate their artistic talents, and stimulate their intellect among peers. My goal is that every student has the outlet and confidence to excel in whatever they pursue and are able to take full advantage of the opportunities Chowchilla Union offers by surrounding them with caring adults who foster the conditions for excellence. Like many of you, I am a parent who wants my children to have educational experiences that help them develop into independent thinkers, caring individuals, and self-sufficient adults. Like many of you, I believe that all people can learn and continue to grow. Like many of you, I am an educator who believes in the power of teaching and learning and that those impacts will set the tone for a fulfilling, purposeful life. Our commonalities will bind us together as we work to meet Chowchilla Union’s mission. In closing, I give you my word to be fully committed and active in our collective effort, to work continuously to achieve our common goals, and to consistently demonstrate the intent needed to achieve what we believe is best for our young people at Chowchilla Union. I look forward to partnering with each of you as we strive for excellence.
Roll Tribe!

Mr. Parris

Dear Chowchilla Tribe Family:
My name is Richard Parris. What an honor to return to Chowchilla Union High School as the Assistant Principal in charge of Discipline and Attendance. This position and new opportunity means I will be returning to a district which has held a special place in my heart. During my two-year tenure at CUHS, I worked with an amazing staff and outstanding teachers. I knew that I would be returning to a school with great traditions, school spirit, and community support. This is the school district which I have compared all other districts to during the past several years. However, none have lived up to its expectations.As Assistant Principal of Discipline and Attendance in this post-pandemic world, I understand the importance of focusing on learning loss and the new challenges that face all students academically, socially, and behaviorally. Our students may come from different environments, but they all share the same adolescent spirit and inquisitiveness as they are learning who they will become in the future during their high school years. As a past teacher, coach, Athletic Director, and Assistant Principal, I have learned that building relationships with students is the most important factor in understanding their choices, both good and bad. In an Assistant Principalship, I will strive to be involved in every aspect of the administrative role at CUHS. My experience in being part of two administrative teams would be the foundation for supporting the academic, behavioral, athletic and student well-being. I want to be the person who continuously supports, mentors and guides the individuals who are directly involved with each area of the various departments, programs, and students.My personal feeling  is Chowchilla Union High school District promotes academic excellence and lifelong learning. My philosophy on academics and the student body has evolved over the years. I truly believe my passion, vision, and commitment will best fit in this role with Chowchilla Union High School. As with everything in life, my commitment is to my family, district, school and community. In addition, I am dedicated to the development of a student’s academic life and their educational success in higher education. I believe anyone can be successful. By this, I am saying I believe it is imperative our school district continues to support a student's effort, individual accountability, and prepare them to be career and college ready.The greatest lesson that I have learned as an educator and coach over the past 25 years can be summed up with a simple philosophy, I have taken to be my motto for life. The statement is, “Pay it forward”. It is the way I hope all students, teachers, coaches, and other members affiliated with me will remember this as my daily goal. This motto has summed up what I strive to accomplish each day as I interact with others. I believe there has been a form of this in my teaching, coaching, and administrator experiences since I began in the education profession. Every moment an educator spends with a child is one that should be looked at as an opportunity to prepare them for the future. Thus, to help others unconditionally can only improve the world. To give less than my best would be wrong, and at the same time it is wrong for me to expect anyone to give me less than their best. Does it always happen? No. But, it does not mean it is time to give up on the opportunities that present themselves to us.See you soon!

Learning Director, Justin Woltz
