Celebrating 20 Years of Excellence
On behalf of the entire CHHS staff, we want to wish you a happy and safe holiday. We look forward to starting the New Year with our students for the spring semester. I feel very blessed and proud to lead a campus filled with amazing students and committed educators.
Being a CHHS Panther is much more than just attending school. It is much more than just showing up to class, perfecting skills, and getting good grades. Being a CHHS Panther means being apart of a family. It means everyone has your back and everyone is there for you. The relationships formed and memories made while being a CHHS Panther will be far more valuable than any GPA earned. Whether you are the valedictorian or the kid that is struggling just to get by in his/her classes, there is a place for everyone. Being a CHHS Panther achieves every person's longing and need to be apart of a greater whole.

HOLIDAY SHOP AND FUND-RAISE AT THE SAME TIME!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on Amazon Smile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers (at no extra cost to you!) This is free money for our school and fuss-free fundraising. Do your holiday or every-day online shopping here and logging in for PTA Texas Congress 4408 Colleyville-Heritage PTSA. Thank you for helping the PTSA meet our financial goal of $10,000 this year to support campus programs $ events throughout the School year. Questions? Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
New Student Support
New Student Support projects begin in January! We are happy to announce two new opportunities for CHHS students to participate in after school activities. First, the National Honors Society will begin offering after school tutorials in the library, Monday - Thursday from 4:00 to 5:00. In an effort to provide students greater access to these tutorials, as well as other after school events and activities, a 5:00 PM bus run to North Euless and North Grapevine will also begin in January. We will be sending out more details soon!

Coming up quickly in the new year is our next PTSA General Meeting on Monday, January 11th, from 5:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at the Technology Education and Career Center at Grapevine High School where we are partnering with our counselors in providing information about college admission, financial aid and FAFSA form assistance.
