PROMOTION EVENTS: The 8th grade promotion committee needs your support. Annually, parents of 8th grade students are asked to make a monetary donation to provide memorable events and experiences for our promoting students. At this time, we were hoping to be in the busy stages of planning the Promotion Dance and 8th Grade Breakfast. We're saddened that we will not be able to provide our children with this experience, but we certainly want to recognize their efforts, hard work, and commitment to their middle school years.

It's important to know that the annual events donation not only pays for the dance and breakfast, it also supports funding the "Class of 2024 CHS ASB fund." These monies are used by the Class of 2024 for activities and community building experiences such as homecoming, spirit events, prom, graduation festivities, and much more. It's essential, and tradition, that they are set up for success as they become the CHS Freshman Class of 2024.

The monies raised will not only be used for the Class of 2024 fund, additionally, each 8th grader will receive a CMS memento. We are also hopeful that we will be able to provide an opportunity during the second week of June for our soon-to-be Islanders to capture one final memory as a CMS Triton.

We hope you will make a $40 donation to support our promoting 8th graders. (Additional funds are appreciated.) Please use the link below to make your donation.Cash and checks cannot be accepted.

Thank you for your support of our 8th graders.

CHS Individual Daily Schedule Preference Response Needed:

If you have already completed this task, there is no further action required.

It has been decided that CHS will remain a 6 period bell schedule for the 2020-2021 school year with any changes in schedule format not taking place until the following year. With this decision, E Period classes (starting at 7:00 am daily) will now be an option. In order to best meet the needs of you and your family, we are asking that ALL students designate their preferred schedule start/stop time so that we can schedule you accordingly to the best of our ability.

In order to access the survey link, you will need to first log into Google from your student's CUSD email log-in or it will not let you proceed. This is the same log-in used for PowerSchool.
