GO COYOTES !!!!!

NEVER FORGET

On September 11, 2001 our country was changed forever . Many lives were lost and all were impacted. We will never forget the sacrifice and heroism of our military and first responders. Thank you to all Veterans, Active Military and First Responders in our CHS family for your service to this great nation.

STANDOUT COYOTES

CHS IMPROV TEAM AKA THE GUTBUSTERS!!!!

The Combs High School Improv Team, the GUTBUSTERS, performed their first show of the year on September 11th before a sold-out crowd. Kristina Carrizosa, Jason Lykins, Tawny Johnson, Katie Kimble, Jenna SIngh, Emily Solomon, George Benavidez, Brandon Ericksonmoen, Jordan Silva, and Cheyenne Stewart dazzled the audience with unscripted comedy routines. Catch them at their next show on November 6th or follow us @combsdrama (FB, Instagram, Twitter) for news and updates.

COUNSELORS CORNER


Hello Coyotes! We have 3 weeks left of the quarter...are you passing your classes? Tutoring is available if you need help! Make sure you are taking advantage of tutoring after school and during conference, and keep getting that work turned in. Your quarter grade makes up part of your semester grade...better safe than sorry!


Social/Emotional learning is a big part of what the counseling department does, and we have several groups available for students to take part in. These groups focus on working through feelings of anxiety, grief, anger, and we learn some great coping skills for those days where things are rough. Groups take place during conference and are slated to last 8 weeks each...if you would like to have your student participate, please have them pick up a permission slip in room 538.


College activities are in full swing with several campus visits and field trips planned. Also, Juniors and Seniors need to get their college entrance exams scheduled (ACT/SAT). Need help? Ask!
