A Message from the Principal

Cavalier Nation,

I hope everyone gets to enjoy this beautiful weather today. I wanted to take a moment to thank our custodians at CHS. Tomorrow, October 2nd, is National Custodian Appreciation Day. Mr. Montalvo, Mr. Baylor, (both pictured above) and the rest of our custodial team do an outstanding job keeping our building clean and ready to go for instruction.

As a reminder, October 8th is the last day of the 1st Quarter. Students please make sure you are up to day on all of your assignments for your classes. Students must check their school email's several times each school day so they are in communication with teachers, counselors, and other school staff.

I hope you enjoy this issue of the Cavalier Contact where you will find information on senior sunrise, voter registration, the class of 2020 Graduation Video, off-season athletic workouts, and more. Thank you for helping us with our focus of Cavaliers Learning Today and Leading Tomorrow!!!
