Senior Spotlight Class of 2022

Week of May 2


Extra Graduation Ticket Lottery: The lottery for extra graduation tickets will be open from 7 am Monday, May 2 until 3 pm Friday, May 6. Seniors will receive a google form from Mrs. France in an email to their school account. If seniors need more than the four tickets they will receive, they should submit the form. THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SENIORS WILL GET ALL OF THE EXTRA TICKETS THEY REQUEST. THIS PUTS THEM IN THE LOTTERY TO RECEIVE ONE OR MORE EXTRA TICKETS. For guests unable to attend in person, the ceremony will be live-streamed. Once we get more information about how to access that, we will share it with seniors and families.


Cap and Gown Delivery: Cap and gown packages will be available for pick up during lunch shifts on Monday, May 16. Packages not picked up that day can be picked up in room 428 anytime that week. All balances must be paid to Jostens before the cap and gowns will be released to students. Invoices for outstanding balances have been emailed to the address you have on file with Jostens.


We continue to plan for the graduation ceremony, scheduled for June 2 at 6 pm in the high school auditorium. Admission to the ceremony is by ticket only, no matter the age of the audience member. Students received ticket and other graduation information at the senior meeting we held after Spring Break. Tickets will be distributed following the graduation rehearsal and senior lunch on June 1. The ceremony will also be livestreamed. Once we have the web address for that, we will share it with families and on social media.


Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions (france.bernadette@ccpsstaff.org). June will be here before you know it! Enjoy these last few months!!

Children's Mental Health Awareness Week

Children's Mental Health Awareness Week in Maryland is celebrated May 1-7, 2022, and CRHS is a School Champion. It's easy to know your child needs help dealing with a fever or broken bone, but mental health problems can be harder to identify.


Visit www.ChildrensMentalHealthMatters.org to:

  • Learn what to do if your child needs help
  • Learn where to go for help
  • How to access children's mental health resources

If you have concerns about your student's mental health, contact his or her school counselor. We can help!
