Graduation Gown Bank  CHS is restocking its Graduation Gown Bank for the class of 2020 and beyond.  In the short run, the Bank allows us to offer gowns to graduating students for whom the cost is prohibitive.  In the long run, we’d like to have enough gowns to make available to all students; families won’t have to spend money needlessly, and we’ll cut down on the number of gowns we add to the waste stream.  Please consider saving your student’s gown for younger siblings, passing it along to friends’ or neighbors’ children, or donating it to the CHS Gown Bank: just bring your gown to the office after graduation and we’ll be glad to take it off your hands.  Thank you!

For our Muslim students who are observing Ramadan, Ms. Arning’s classroom (114) is available during lunch for fellowship with other fasting students.  You may leave your 5th/6th period classes at 1:15 pm to use the Staff Lounge (room 233) for afternoon prayers.

Dress Code Reminder – Despite the beautiful weather, exposed midriffs and chests are not part of the Spartan dress code.  Please Cover the Core!

FAFSA is now open to high school students entering 2 and 4-year colleges and universities in Fall 2019. A great source for help completing the FAFSA can be found here: The Parent’s Guide to Filling Out the FAFSA® Form

The ORSAA is open as an alternative to the FAFSA for undocumented Oregon students, including students who have DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status.  Do NOT complete the ORSAA if you are a U.S. citizen or a legal noncitizen with an Alien Registration number.

The CSS Profile is now open.  It is an online application that collects information used by nearly 400 colleges (mainly private) and scholarship programs to award non-federal aid. (For federal aid you must complete the FAFSA.)  You should submit no later than two weeks before the EARLIEST priority filing date specified by your colleges. Check with the colleges to which you are applying to see if they require the CSS Profile.

Senior Beyond CHS Appointments – 20-minute appointments are available in Beyond CHS. During this voluntary appointment, BCHS staff or a volunteer are available to discuss your plans for after you graduate from CHS, Career Ed requirements, and help you plan for continuing education – from vocational training to 2-year and 4-year college.

Buchanan Entrance Update

Want an easy way to save money?  Turn your car engine off while you wait for your student outside of the school.  By turning your engine off, you’ll save gas, save money, and keep the air a bit cleaner.  Thank you!

We appreciate your use of the 11th street entrance during morning drop off and afternoon pick up.  Although the situation on Buchanan Avenue has improved, there are now drivers who stop in the bike lane there to discharge or retrieve their students. Stopping a car in a bike lane is unsafe and unlawful. Thank you for helping keep CHS and our community safe.

Gracias por dejar o recoger a sus estudiantes de CHS en la entrada de la calle 11 y disminuir así los problemas de seguridad del tráfico en la avenida Buchanan. Aunque ya han disminuido, todavía hay personas que se detienen momentáneamente en el carril de bicicletas para dejar o recoger a sus estudiantes. Detenerse en el carril para bicicletas es inseguro e ilegal. Gracias por ayudar a mantener la seguridad en CHS y en nuestra comunidad.
