Graduation, EOC's and Summer...OH MY!

May 25th, the last day of school will be here before you know it. On May 27th, we will watch another group of tenacious seniors having earned their diploma, move that tassel to the other side of the cap and set foot on a new adventure in life leaving high school in the rearview mirror. We are so proud of these seniors, who had a bumpy ride during the middle two years of high school, in all that they have accomplished.

WELCOME!

Howard University Mentoring Event--This Thursday

Howard University is reaching out to share with CHS students an opportunity to engage with Howard University alumni who are leading professionals in their respective fields. Our "Career Speed Share" event is an annual favorite where students rotate to spend a little time meeting different HU alumni to learn who they are, and then students get to introduce themselves and share their aspirations to gain insight from the alumni on how to chart their course for success.


Date: Thursday, April 28th

Time: 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Register to Attend on Eventbrite: Search Career Speed Share or go to link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/career-speed-share-tickets-325790156127

Are you interested in applying to an Academy?

Ossoff GA Academy Day

If your student is interested in the service academies, Senator Ossoff is hosting a GA Academy Day on Saturday, April 30th 2022 at Dobbins Air Reserve Base. There is a form at https://www.ossoff.senate.gov/academyday2022/ to express interest in the event but there is a note on the form stating "Completion of this form does not guarantee admittance to the event. Upon completion of the form, confirmed attendees should expect to receive a formal invitation via email from the Air Force to the email provided, which will include logistics information such as address and parking instructions."

There are 4 big advantages to taking the June ACT-

  1. Students are still in "school" mode, so they're mentally warmed-up for testing.
  2. They've got plenty of time to submit applications for scholarships and schools if they meet their performance goals.
  3. If they decide to retest, they know the areas they need to work on.
  4. June is one of only three chances per year to purchase their Test Information Release (TIR) to help them prep. A TIR is an official copy of their questions, the answer key, and the answers they submitted.

June is the perfect time to take the ACT, register by May 6th

Freshman!! Class of 2024

End of Freshman year thoughts....

Process these thoughts/ideas about your first year of high school:

  • How did your first year in high school go? Better or worse than you expected it to go?
  • What will you change about your 10th grade year?
  • Have you given more thought about what life will look like after high school? (College, career, military)
  • What do you hope to get involved in next year that you didn't do this year?
  • What is 1 thing that you hope you do NOT carry over into your 10th grade year?
  • Did you take the opportunity to meet your school counselor?
  • If college is in your future, what must-haves does your college(s) need?
  • If a career is in your future, what are you doing RIGHT NOW to prepare for that career?
  • One class I am looking forward to my 10th grade year is....
  • Was there a teacher or adult at CHS that made an impact on your first year?
