It's 2016!

PSAT

From College Board:

Scores are now available from the PSAT/NMSQT you took in October. You can access your scores report online and learn how ready you are for college, explore which AP courses are a good match for you, and get insight into which skills to focus on in order to prepare for the SAT. You can also link your College Board and Khan Academy accounts to access free, personalized SAT practice based on your PSAT/NMSQT results. Learn more at psat.org/scores.

Registration for the 2016-17 School year starts on January 20th

The online course registration window will open on January 20th and close on January 27, 2016. Materials will be distributed through your 4th period teacher. The course guide can be accessed by clicking on the above title "2016-17 Course Registration", or going to the CHS website. All students must log on to their student HAC account to access the online portion of the course registration. You must also complete your course registration worksheet, obtain your parent's signature, and turn it in to your 4th period teacher on January 27th.

All students will have the opportunity to have an individual meeting with their counselor to discuss their courses for the next school year, make changes, and have their questions answered. This will take place through the Spring semester. The last day to make any changes to your course requests for the next school year will be May 2, 2016.

Also, counselors will be available at a help table during all three lunches to answer questions about course registration and the CHS course guide offerings.
