This year, CHS is proud to claim two National Merit Scholarship semifinalists--Kayla Blosser and Catherine Papa. Kayla and Catherine will be moving on to the next round of the scholarship competition with results to be announced next spring.  

 Several CHS students have recently been recognized by the College Board National Recognition Program for their outstanding performance on the PSAT and AP examinations. This is a nationwide program that honors the academic achievements of underrepresented students.

We want to remind our parents that Fall Break is a great week for students to catch up on ALL missing assignments while also spending time with family and friends. Parents/guardians are asked to check Parentvue to make sure that your student has completed and turned in all assignments. 

There are two safety concerns in which we ask parents to assist us. The first is a reminder to please do not enter the Tiger Lot on Ward Street.  Our students with disabilities buses enter there for drop off and pick up. Also, please remind students that we need all students to exit the building at 3:45 PM each day unless they are with a teacher for a club, activity or practice for a sporting event. No adults are on duty after 3:45 and it is unsafe for students to be in the building unsupervised. An announcement is made each day at 3:45 for students to leave the building. 

Thank you, 
Dr. Watkins, Principal
