It's the Final Countdown!

Time flies when you're having fun, huh? Some would disagree and say school hasn't been fun, but the thing is, you get out of school what you put into it. It's all about attitude. So, we hope at some point this year, you had some fun during your last year here at Calhoun High School. As you prepare for your last few weeks at CHS, still give your best effort, whether it's on the EOCs, AP exams, classwork, or whatever goals you have set for yourself personally. Either way, it's all up to you. Your administrators, your teachers, your parents and other family members have hopefully prepared you for the next chapter in your lives. Whether you're going to a four-year college/university, a two-year college, a trade school, the Armed Forces, or straight into the workforce, we hope you feel prepared. We also hope you are able to look back at your time at Calhoun High School and find some good memories to reflect on. There's still time to make a few! So, CONGRATULATIONS to the Class of 2022! You did it!


Remind - STILL JOIN!

If you have not joined the Class of 2022 Remind group, please do so. Mrs. Arnold and Mr. Benham share all sorts of information for the senior class via Remind periodically. It's very important for students and parents to join! To join, please text @jackets22 to 81010. We are still pushing out information every week!


We are still missing about $700 worth of sucker money! If you have not turned in your sucker money, you need to do so ASAP. Anyone who has not turned this money in is currently on the unclear list. PLEASE don't risk not participating in graduation activities because of sucker money. Click here to view Mr. Benham's spreadsheet to see if you currently owe money. On the spreadsheet, find your homeroom tab and then your name. If you didn't sell suckers, this doesn't apply to you. As of now, students are the only ones who can view this spreadsheet, not parents. If there is a mistake, please feel free to contact Mr. Benham.
