WHAT IS SITE COUNCIL

The school site council is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students (at the high school level) that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. If you are interested in being a part of the 2019-2020 CHS Site Council please fill out the questionnaire below.

CLIMBING MOUNT EVEREST HAD BEEN A PERSONAL GOAL FOR MONTH FOR MS. MOYES

A pair of glasses shield her eyes from the snow as it slams against her face and body. Her bones practically frozen through from the cold. CHS English teacher Taylor Moyes had to drag her feet to get them to move through the March snow; but all Moyes had to do to keep moving was remind herself where she was, and what she was doing.
