Spartan Weekly Roundup October 28 – November 3, 2019

Academics

Please call the Attendance line, 541.757.5888, for all matters pertaining to your student’s absences: sick days, late arrivals, early departures, middle of the day appointments, etc.  You may get a recording because the attendance line is a busy one!  In that case, leave a detailed message.  Mrs. Begin listens to messages every few minutes throughout the day.

Parent/Teacher Conferences in the CHS cafeteria commons will take place on October 30, from 5-8 pm, and on October 31, from 12-4 pm.  (Note: October 31 is a No School day.)   These are arena-style conferences, meaning parents and guardians (and students, if you like) will meet with teachers on a first-come, first-served basis.  We ask that participants be prepared to spend no more than 10 minutes with each teacher, so that all will have a chance to meet.

No school on October 31st and November 1st!

The Tutoring Center is open from 7:30 am to 4 pm, Monday through Thursday, and from 7:30 am to 3:05 pm on Fridays.  Come to room 224 for help with any subject, or to make up tests.  Get help with college essays, science lab reports, and more! Weekend online editing available.  See Mrs. Weiler in 224 for all your tutoring needs!

 

Beyond CHS

Seniors:  If you submitted an online transcript request between September 20 and October 3, please resubmit your request using the online Transcript Order Form. Due to technical issues, transcript requests placed between those dates did not process correctly.  Questions or concerns?  Please see Mrs. Keller in Counseling.

PSAT at CHS, October 30.  Sophomores are automatically enrolled for free testing.  Juniors should take the test if they want to be considered for the National Merit program and its related scholarships.  The fee for juniors is $23.  Fee waivers are available; check the College Board fee waiver criteria.

Beyond CHS is now on Instagram!

Extracurricular

The lockdown drill performed on Wednesday October 23rd was a success. Staff and students did a wonderful job following the Standard Response Protocols. The lockdown drill team was able to identify and problem solve some of the issues that arose. It is never easy having to drill for an active threat inside the building, but our Spartan community came together and practiced keeping each other safe.

Please respect the No Idling Zone and Fire Lane signs posted around the school.  If you wait for your student in your car, please park in a designated parking spot so that the Fire Lanes are clear, and please turn your car off.  It makes the air just a bit cleaner for all.  And not using gas saves you money!
