Spring is right around the corner with spring break beginning on March 30. We’re hoping the worst of the winter weather is over at this point, however we want to still encourage our students, staff and parents to take all necessary precautions in the event of bad weather. The last day of school remains May 21 since we have not used any emergency days this year. Should we use any, and adjustment be necessary, we will notify you of the updated last day of school. Graduation will still be held on Thursday, May 14 at Northern Illinois University (NIU Convocation Center). In addition to Graduation, CHS will be hosting a number of awards programs and banquets for a variety of activities and accomplishments. Senior Awards Night will be on April 22. Underclassman Awards will be held on May 15. All other awards events will be communicated through the appropriate sponsor so be on the lookout for those dates as sponsors communicate them.
As we move into the spring testing season, please be aware that all Juniors will take the SAT on April 14. Freshman and Sophomores will be taking the PSAT assessment on that day. The PSAT is part of the SAT suite of assessments and can be used to determine how close your student is to meeting benchmarks on the SAT when they take it as a Junior. More information about what your student’s PSAT score will be forthcoming once we get the results.
With an eye on the 2020/2021 school year, the CHS counselors have been busy finalizing student schedules. Please continue to keep an eye out for an e-blast from the CHS student services team for updates regarding scheduling as well as registration. This will be important as students must be registered in order to view their schedule for next year. More to follow.
Thank you to the entire CHS community for your continued support. We look forward to an exciting end of the school year.
