TAKS Day 2...Done

As we complete our 2nd day of TAKS testing at CHS I wanted to thank all of our Dragon families for helping to make sure the students are on time and prepared for testing. We have been able to start quickly each morning which has in turn allowed us to complete testing on time.

We also want to give a BIG Thank You to our PTSO for scheduling Parents, Einstein Bagels, Bread Haus and Central Market to contribute goodies for our teachers. We appreciate your support!
