From the Principal

Dear Cardinal Family,

I would like to invite our CHS parents to Coffee with the Principal EVERY first Tuesday of the month. The goal is to keep parents in the loop about what's going on at CHS, share important information, and give you all a chance to ask questions. More importantly, the purpose is to form an authentic and effective partnership with all my CHS parents. On the 10.5.21 agenda is:

-Communication Preferences

-COVID Updates

-Dress Code


-PIE (Personal Intervention and Enrichment)

You must have your driver's license and check in at the front office upon arrival. Please join me throughout the school year!

Remember, we are committed to creating an environment where students and teachers alike can: LEARN WITH PASSION, ACT WITH COURAGE, AND CHANGE THE WORLD! #EverUpwardCardinals

All the BEST,

Mich Etzel
