Curriculum Night on Horizon

Curriculum nights are scheduled at CHS each year during the first few weeks of school. This activity is designed for parents only (no students please). The meeting provides teachers with an important opportunity to visit with parents about grade-level and course curriculum, as well as classroom expectations. While we'd certainly love to sit and talk one on one with each parent we are limited in time. Please schedule those conferences individually with each teacher. We look forward to visiting with our wonderful parents on September 6, 2011 from 6:00 to 7:32 PM.

Please remember we tend to see about 1000 people arrive on a campus with limited parking. If you're concerned with finding a parking spot please arrive early. In addition, some people certainly will try to use DIS for parking, provided they do not have an event being planned.

We hope to see everyone soon.

Thank You CHS Dragons

Can you say amazing! We have said it a hundred times at CHS today. Our kids were amazing, our staff was amazing, and our parents were amazing. Today quite possibly might have been the best first day we've ever seen at CHS. You can't ask for a better place to spend every single day.

This DRAGON campus can't stop smiling.

First Day Procedures

On Monday students please follow these procedures to start your day:
1.       If a student KNOWS that he/she is in a 1st block class that meets at CSHS (i.e., a sophomore in basketball) the student should go to that class even though the class is not at CHS. This will include athletes and drill team students, etc.
2.       Coaches/directors, etc., will allow 1st block students to leave early enough after 1st block so that they can get to CHS in time to get their official schedule (on pink paper) from the gym at CHS. 
3.       For students who receive their official pink schedule at CHS and learn that their first block class is at the other school (i.e., freshman who are taking French I 1st block at CSHS), the student will remain at CHS for 1st block - students will go to the cafeteria area.
4.       Teachers, will use pink schedules as official schedules for students on the first and second day of school. 

Good luck Dragons as we approach 2011-2012 school year and call if you have questions.

Welcome Teachers

CHS was so happy to experience all of our teachers today. We started the day off with convocation at CSHS and finished with a staff development at CHS. We are so lucky to have such a respected bunch of teachers and cherish them daily.

If you want a good laugh, and yes we know it is blurry, check out the flash mob at convocation this morning.

Welcome to 2011 and 2012.

First Day is Amazing

While I'm watching our new Freshmen tour CHS and visit with each other I'm amazed again at how wonderful CHS is and the kids we have every single day. I have seen our Sophomores visit in the morning, our new students eat lunch at noon, and our Freshmen work through our Fish camp and pep rally all with smiles amazing to every person that passes. Thank you Dragons.

I'd also like to thank all of our parents for visiting CHS today to help with schedules, clothing and general assistance. A principal can't ask for more than our parents provide, you're our greatest assistance every day.

On-line Registration Open

Parents we would encourage you soon to login to your family access location and begin the on-line registration experience. As of our first day, CHS had 66 registrants and we would love to see that number double or triple today. Please do this soon so you can begin the process for your child and avoid many of the hand written forms later.

If you have questions feel free to phone CHS and we'll do all we can to assist.
