Notes from the Principal

Dear CHS Community,

Our families are our greatest supporters of our teachers and staff when it comes to the academic, social and emotional development of our students. Your support is what makes CHS a special place in which to learn and grow. We appreciate your partnership, and we thank you, especially during the holiday season for your support of our students.

We will continue to cherish our strong home-school partnership that exists within our community as we embark on a new year full of hope, promise and optimism.

I wish you and your family health and happiness during the holiday season and a happy new year!
