Come One, Come All, We Are Central!

Freshman Newsletter (Class Of 2019)

Principal Message To Students

What an outstanding start to the 2014-2015 school year we have had! The Class of 2018 is showing great school spirit, character, and dedication to doing well in all facets of life in high school! I know that there have been a few “glitches” with the changed schedule to the 9 period day, but at this point, all of the conflicts and missing classes/lunches should have been resolved. Thank you so much for your patience as we all worked through that process!

One of my favorite “tasks” each six weeks is publishing the Freshman Honor Rolls! Those will be published on the CHS website the Friday following grade reporting, to allow for any grade changes that may be posted. Both an ‘A’ Honor Roll and an ‘A/B’ Honor Roll will be published. To be on the ‘A’ Honor Roll, students must have earned a grade of 90 or better in every class during that six weeks. The ‘A/B’ Honor Roll will include all students who made a grade of 80 or better in every class during that six weeks, excluding the students with all A’s. There also will be semester honor rolls at the end of each semester. This is just one of the ways we attempt to recognize the accomplishments of our freshmen, and encourage them to set high academic standards for themselves. The honor rolls are posted on the “We Are Central” bulletin board located on the 1st floor Central staircase and on the Freshman Focus link of the CHS website.

I would also like to take a moment to thank our Charger Champions, led by Mrs. Gantz, Mrs. Wang, and Mr. Powers, for all they have done for the Class of 2018! They planned and executed a fantastic “Fish Camp” and have been visible constant support for the freshman class as they adjust to CHS! Thank you, Champions!! A focus this year is for the Champions be in closer contact with their freshmen than in previous years your freshman’s Champion should be regularly communicating with them. One of the upcoming events that is new this year is to have the freshmen who are not involved in an-other organization marching in the Homecoming Parade on October 6. Freshmen will be receiving information from their Champion as to where/when to meet. They should wear their “We Are One” shirts if they have one (the last order has been received and shirts distributed as I type this).

Finally, I would like to tell you about a program for freshmen not taking the PSAT that will be held on Wednesday, October 15. I will be showing the movie “We Are Marshall” to the students, following the viewing with a presentation on setting high personal standards and persevering through the obstacles that can sometimes get in the way of our goals! Because the movie is rated PG-13, you have the opportunity to “opt out” for your freshman by completing the attached form and returning it to the Administrative Office by Monday, October 13. I was a senior at Marshall University at the time of this tragic plane crash, and experienced first-hand the dedication, perseverance, and passion of many people in the Marshall community during the months that followed and it is my hope to convey to our freshmen the power of the expression “I Am One….WE Are Central” through this presentation.

As always, if you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact me as we experience your student’s freshman year at CHS!
