Link Crew, a spirited group of CHS Juniors and Seniors, hosted approximately 600 freshmen last Friday for Freshman Orientation. Link Crew led the Class of 2021 through a number of activities and acclimated them to the campus and CHS culture. It was an awesome event! Thanks to Link Crew and the numerous CHS Teachers who work closely with the group!
CHS’s Student Council participated in “Work Week” last week and assisted teachers in their classrooms, decorated bulletin boards, filmed the “Back to School” video, helped with Wolf Days, and completed committee work to make 2017-18 a great year. Thanks to StuCo and Mr. Gray for all of their hard work!
