Student & Family Bulletin

Week of September 25


  1. SPECIAL BELL SCHEDULES: Due to homecoming, we will be on special bell schedules on Monday and Friday. Monday we will have a morning assembly, and Friday we will have an afternoon assembly.  HERE is a copy of the schedules for the week.  Wednesday will be a normal 1:40 release schedule.

  2. PARKING LOT UPDATE: We will have to close the A Lot on Monday and Tuesday for the construction crew to do some more work.  This means that parent drop off and pick up will need to happen in C Court and/or on Fieldhouse Rd.  Buses will still drop off and pick up in A Court (but across the parking lot where they were doing so earlier in the year).  Student parking will be impacted once again and overflow parking will be at the fieldhouse and/or the football practice field behind the field house.  Plan to arrive early or park in overflow.

  3. ​​HOMECOMING WEEK: Homecoming week is this week.  Our theme is Hollywood Homecoming and ASB has lots of exciting events planned.  There will be in school assemblies on Monday and Friday and an optional evening assembly on Wednesday.  Show your school spirit by participating in the following dress up days:

    1. Monday: Color Wars (9th - orange, 10th - yellow, 11th - blue, 12th - green)

    2. Tuesday: Adam Sandler Day (dress like your favorite Adam Sandler Movie

    3. Wednesday: Franchise Day (11th and 12th grade dress like characters from Star Wars, 9th and 10th grade dress like characters from Marvel or DC Comics)

    5. Friday: School Spirit (dress in red, white, and black)

  4. HOMECOMING GAME/DANCE: The homecoming game is Friday evening against Seton Catholic.  It starts at 7:00pm and the homecoming court will be announced during Halftime.  Come celebrate in Hollywood style with the 2023 Homecoming Dance, Saturday, September 30th from 8-11 in A-Court. Tickets go on sale Monday, September 25th at lunch in A-Court for $7 w/ ASB, $10 without. Tickets will be sold at the door, but you'll save a lot of money buying yours in advance, so plan ahead.  If you turned in a guest dance registration form last week, you will receive a confirmation email once your guest has been approved.  Remember that guests may not attend without the CHS student who is bringing them and that they must bring a valid photo ID.

  5. GYM CLOSED DURING LUNCH: The gym will be closed during lunch this week for classes to practice for Friday’s lip sync.  9th graders are practicing on Monday, 11th graders are practicing on Tuesday and Friday, 12th graders are practicing on Wednesday, and 10th graders are practicing on Thursday.  These are just the gym practices.  There may also be other practices.  Check with your class sponsor or class officers for more information.

  6. STEM RISING STAR AWARD: Congratulations to Academy Student Lilli McCauley, who was named Career Connect Southwest’s 2023 Washington STEM Rising Star. The Washington STEM Rising Star Awards recognize young women who explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in ways that will support their education, career, personal development, and community.  Lilli was chosen for this honor for her countless hours after school and on weekends developing assistive devices for people with disabilities and challenges through Gorge Maker Space.  Way to go, Lilli!
