Well, September has come and gone and nobody really knows where it went! As a school, we’ve been able to enjoy some major successes this year already, both in and out of the classroom. We’re anticipating we’ll see some more great things from our students in October as well.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the members of our Parent Principal Advisory (PPA) for their hard work and support in making Homecoming a great experience for our students and sponsors associated with the event. The PPA sponsored the concessions and the coat check for our students, which were a great hit for our students. Additionally, the PPA continues to meet monthly to discuss opportunities to support the school. At our last meeting, we discussed topics such as semester end dates and final exams. There was great discussion and I was able to gather some valuable insight from parent participants. Their next meeting is on November 8 at CHS in the library. Please contact President Ken Hudziak at email@example.com for more information about this organization.
Our primary academic focus in the month of October will include the following: continued development and analysis of our Academic Advisory program, kicking off our scheduling process for the 2019/2020 school year, and making final preparations for our Veteran’s Day activity. For detailed information or discussion regarding any of these elements, I encourage to you to attend the PPA meetings at which I’d be happy to speak with you and others about any of these or other important topics.
Finally, I’d like to extend my appreciation to the CHS community for your patience regarding the implementation of our early release each week. CHS administrators have worked with staff to alleviate some of the traffic issues that have arisen and have been able to work out a traffic flow system that is able to accommodate our dismissal in less than sixteen minutes, which is similar to a normal school day. We’ll continue to monitor this throughout the year. Early release time at the high school is used for teachers to work in departments and teams on curriculum/assessment development and analysis, student data analysis, and program development.
Thank you to the entire CHS community for your continued support of our school. It’s always a great day to be a ROCKET!
