Go to the counseling center calendar to see what sessions will be discussed each day (or pick up a flyer in the counseling center). I encourage students to start taking practice tests (be sure to correct them) and go to the counseling center google classroom (code: yjwtuh) and start looking at the ACT Prep information.

If you would like to take this test, sign up is available in the counseling center through February 10th. Seniors will be seated first, followed by juniors as space is available. Seating is limited.

Transcripts

As you apply to colleges, universities and vocational schools throughout this school year you will be asked to send a high school transcript to those institutions. The CHS Counseling Center is happy to send that information to the institution of your choice. You will need to come the CHS Counseling Center and fill out and sign a transcript request form. Once that form has been completed, your transcript along with your ACT scores will be sent electronically. Your immunization records will be faxed to the requested location. You do not need to email your principal or your counselor for this. Simply come to the CHS Counseling Center and fill out the form.


If you have any questions, please email or come and see your school counselor.

CHS Dance Team

If interested in trying out for the CHS Dance Team, come by Coach Hillenburg's room, 1503, to get the paper with the Google classroom code. There will be a mandatory meeting January 29th at 6 pm at the Freshman academy.

Governor's Distinguished Scholarship

Governor’s Distinguished Scholarships - students who meet the following minimum eligibility criteria are eligible to be named Governor’s Distinguished Scholars: either a 32 composite score on a single ACT or 1410 combined math and critical reasoning score on a single SAT AND either a 3.50 academic grade point average or selection as a National Achievement Finalist or National Merit Finalist. (Those who are named National Merit Finalists or National Achievement Scholars may qualify without meeting the GPA requirement, but must still meet the ACT/SAT requirement). If funding allows, up to 375 Governor’s Distinguished Scholars may be named. If there is a county in Arkansas that does not have a Distinguished Scholar, the highest ranking applicant from that county will be awarded a Governor's Scholarship at $5000 per year. Financial need of the student is not a factor in the award of the scholarship, therefore no financial information is required. (You do not have to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be eligible for this scholarship.) The Governor’s Distinguished Scholarship will pay up to $10,000 per year for tuition, mandatory fees, room and board. Deadline is February 1, 2020. Visit adhe.edu for more information.

6. Transcripts

In order for a transcript to be sent to a college/university a student must come to the CHS Counseling Center and fill out the appropriate form. The most transcripts are sent electronically. Immunization records will be mailed separately as they are not a part of a student's electronic transcript. Students do not need to email his/her counselor to request a transcript. They should simply come to the CHS Counseling Center and fill out a transcript request form.

7. Wall of Acceptance

Students are encouraged to bring a copy of his/her college/university/vocational school acceptance letter to Mrs. Angela Beason in room 1115. These letters will be added to a wall in the CHS hallway.

CHS fax number for all medical and excuse notes (501-743-3583)

CHS Check Out Policy

  • CHS students will be allowed to check out with a parent/guardian note only. A parent/guardian phone number will need to be included on the checkout note for verification purposes.

  • ***No phone call checkouts will be allowed because of safety concerns.

CHS is a closed campus and we strongly discourage students from checking out at lunch. This typically causes unnecessary tardies and classroom interruptions. If a student is checking out at lunch, a parent/guardian must physically come in and sign the student out and them back in from lunch.

Only a parent/guardian is allowed to drop lunch off for a student. If a parent/guardian is dropping off lunch for a student, there will be a table (outside the office) with a sharpie for the students name to be written on it. Students should know in advance that lunch is being dropped off to them.
