WOLF PACK MARCHING BAND
The Wolf Pack Marching Band is in great hands this year under Directors Mr. Carlos Aguero and Mr. Steven Quintana and Drum Majors Dane Nusbaum and Austin Schattenberg. The Wolf Pack is excited to present this year’s show Dark Side of the Moon and debut some new stand tunes during football games and pep assemblies.

The CHS IB program kicked off the year Friday with our first annual Camp IB for juniors and seniors in our Diploma and Career programs! Students enjoyed an afternoon together that included a slam poetry performance, work on their own dream team, meditation and mental health strategies, creativity, and dancing math. They concluded the day by learning the Haka from our CHS football captains!
