With the turning of the calendar page to December, it is our hope at CHS that all of our students, families and school community were able to enjoy a happy and restful Thanksgiving break and are ready for the final preparations and excitement of the upcoming holiday season. Thank you to the veterans of our community who participated in our Veteran’s Day celebration. It was our pleasure to see all the parents who were able to attend our parent-teacher conferences. Thank you for your participation in helping us to build strong relationships between home and school. Additionally, it was very exciting to welcome our 8th grade students and parents for our AAA showcase. We’re hopeful that this introduction to our academic, athletic, and activity options were helpful to our soon to be CHS Rockets! We look forward to welcoming you to our holiday music event, Sleigh Bells Ringing (December 7) which will lead us into the holiday season.
As we move along in the upcoming month, teachers and students will continue to work toward a strong finish to our first semester. This year, semester one ends before winter break. We are happy that our students and staff will be able to shut down and enjoy a much needed break. That said, final exams will also occur prior to winter break, a change from previous years. As such, final exams are scheduled for December 18-20. A more detailed message for the exam schedule will be forthcoming. Please keep an eye on our website and your email for those details.
Finally, as December can tend to come and go like a whirlwind, I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the entire staff at Central High School to wish you and your family a safe, restful, and enjoyable holiday season! While many of you may take the opportunity to get away with your family, we know that many others will be around for the multiple events that will take place at school during this time. Please take the time to check out our athletics website, http://il.8to18.com/bchs for all of our winter sporting events.
