Celebrating 20 Years of Excellence
The month of October is a busy time at CHHS. We will be celebrating Homecoming activities, completing our first grading period, co-hosting the senior cookout with our PTSA, and many other activities. Please pay close attention to our website and weekly newsletter to stay informed. The campus has created a large committee to help us celebrate our 20th year, and we will begin communicating more information about celebrations for this important anniversary.
I look forward to seeing you over the next several weeks!
Excellence - Colleyville Heritage High School, since day one of freshman year, has shown me excellence in all facets: academics, leadership, athletics, and staff. Firstly, I have been enabled by CHHS to fulfill my entire academic potential by the excellence of my teachers and classmates. As well as academics, leadership has been a huge influence on me since my first day at CHHS. The PALS program made me feel extremely welcome, and every student-run event has been very impressive to me. This further enables me to fulfill my potential as a man, classmate, and leader in my community. Furthermore, athletics has been the greatest source of pride that I have been able to take part in while at CHHS. Not only have they helped me feel important, but the coaches in charge of the programs have given me everlasting gifts of wisdom. Finally, the Colleyville Heritage High School staff provide a positive atmosphere that make going to class an opportunity rather than a burden, and my outlook in work as a whole has changed because of this. Excellence runs throughout this school, and the students, staff, and members of our community are a reflection of this excellence.

City of Colleyville National Night Out
psat boot camp
Registration ends October 8th.
The PSAT not only prepares students for the important college-admissions SAT test; it’s also the test that qualifies students for National Merit Scholarships as seniors. So practicing taking the PSAT as a freshman and sophomore is important, so that students are ready for the critical junior year PSAT. Sophomores taking the PSAT at CHHS may also qualify for a special, free PSAT class as a junior.
Give your student the luxury of uninterrupted PSAT study time. Time is a precious commodity for all of us and that includes our children. Interruptions, including emails, text, and friends making last minute plans, are the bane of any student preparing for an exam, so Register for the AP Booster Club's PSAT Boot Camp from 9:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Monday, Oct 12 at CHHS and give your student dedicated study time.
For the low price of $50, CHHS students will get PSAT strategies from Timarron College Prep on the Columbus Day Holiday, two days before testing Oct. 14. The Boot Camp will be taught by certified teachers and cover vocabulary, critical reading, math, and writing. There will be multiple class rooms limited to 30 students each. Total enrollment is capped and will be on a first-come first-served basis. The PSAT Boot Camp is also a major fundraiser for the APBC, which helps fund AP Testing fees for students. Register and pay online at http://chhsapboosters.com/index.html. Students who qualify for the free/reduced lunch program may qualify for a reduced camp price.
