Principals Message:


Thank you to everyone who made our first week of school a great way to start the 2022-2023 school year. We appreciate all the student, staff, parent, family, and community support CHS has received over this week and all the support at the different events, including;

  • Freshmen Orientation, where we had one of the best turnouts of our incoming 9th-grade students in years. it was a great introductory experience for our new 9th grade students
  • CHS Community BBQ, with over 200 students, staff, families, and community members who celebrated the start of the school year together and learned about many of the different ways to get involved at CHS.

  • Senior Sunrise for Seniors was a fantastic continuation of a long CHS tradition as our seniors watched the sun's rising at the start of their senior year.

  • The first day of school was exciting and filled with fun and learning.

  • CHS Welcome Back Assembly was the first time we had our whole student body together showing their Eagle Spirit in many years.

  • We have had more fans cheering on our Eagles at our sporting events than we have had in many years; thanks to all of you this week, and it has made a difference our teams can feel!

Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. Please know that we are here to support you by answering any questions you might have. Our focus during these first weeks of school will continue to be on safety and building community.
