On Wednesday, March 6th, all 11th grade students will be taking the SAT during the school day. The state of Indiana now requires that all students take the SAT at school in the spring of their junior year. To provide the most optimum testing environment, students in grades 9, 10, and 12 will have an eLearning day.
11th grade parents: Please see the following link that provides you with information about the SAT: SAT Parent Information
Here are some additional links for you to view:
We will continue to provide these and other links with SAT information to our 11th grade parents as we move towards the March 6th test day.
College Rep Visits
Lewis University - 7:45 - 8:45
University of Maine - 9:00 - 10:00
To sign up, students should go into their Naviance account. On the bottom right, there is a section called "What's New". Here, students can see all of the reps that are coming to visit CPHS. Click on "more info" next to the college they would like to visit to sign up for the visit. You will receive a pass on the day/time of the visit. If students have questions, they can ask their counselor for assistance.
Please see below a message from our cafeteria manager, Mrs. Cindy Beck.
Our charging policy in the cafeteria is changing. We will now require all students who want an extra entrée to see a cashier first and get a meal card. Cards will assure our servers that your student has enough money in their account to purchase extra food. No extra entrées will be given without a card. We are hoping this policy change will help students better manage their lunch accounts. As always, your student is welcome to eat the first meal with no restrictions. This policy is only for second or third meals.
If you have questions for Mrs. Beck, please email her at email@example.com.

Safe schools anonymous tip line - If you see or hear something, say something.
Safety Reminders for Students
Students should report to a teacher, counselor, administrator, police officer, or any adult in the building if there is a safety concern. It is always better to overreport and be on the safe side.
During school hours (7:00 a.m. to 2:37 p.m.) hats and hoods are not allowed to be worn in our building. This is so that all students can be identified. This is also a part of the CPHS dress code.
Student drivers must remain cautious in the parking lot and near the school. Please remind students to drive slowly and follow the directions of our police officers. All student drivers must have a parking pass displayed in their vehicle while in the CPHS lot.
Student dismissal is at 2:37 pm. Students who do not have supervised after-school activities should leave the building by 3 pm. Students who are waiting for rides should wait in the lobby of the school near the front entrance.
Please do not use the ARC building across the street (Burrell) to pick up your students. The ARC staff has asked us to relay this message.

Our Speech and Debate program is coached by Mrs. Marek and Mrs. Manhatton. They will be participating in several invitationals throughout the winter months.
The CPHS Robotics program competed at a Signature Event at the Dallara Indy Car Factory. Signature Events bring together some of the best teams from around the country to compete. This event included teams from 15 different states and Canada.

After the Signature Event ended, the team was in action the next day in Chesterton at the Duneland Fall Regional. 10 teams from CPHS competed. Our teams put up a dominant performance in Chesterton. Out of the 32 of 63 teams at the tournament that made it to elimination, 9 of those were from CPHS. Our Robotics teams are coached by Mr. Matt LeBlanc.
