Updates from the CHS PTO

By  | 

Hoping you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and are enjoying this holiday season.  Here
are some school updates brought to you by your friendly PTO. 

Wildcat Central for Christmas  – Sat. Dec. 5
The PTO will have a booth in the gym at the Christmas festival this weekend.  Our
booth will be open from 9:00 – 4:00 p.m., this Saturday, December 5th.  We have
added quite a few new items that are just perfect for stocking stuffers & Christmas
gift giving.  Please stop by our booth & check out the new items…  Thank you so
much for you generous support of the PTO!
Volunteer opportunity:  If you can help work from 1-3 or 3-5 on Saturday, please let
us know right away.  THANKS!

Teacher’s Appreciation Gifts
The PTO hosts a catered luncheon to honor our 120 teachers & faculty members.  Part
of our Christmas program is giving gifts to our teachers.  We are in need of gifts to be donated that will be given to our teachers on Wednesday, December 16th. Please send your wrapped gifts, marked if gender specific, by Friday, December 11th. The gifts may be delivered to the CHS front office.    Thank you so much for making our teacher’s feel appreciated & for a very fun and much anticipated event
each year.

Student of the Year Portfolios
The Student of the Year Portfolios are due to me on this Friday.  A school level
committee will select the finalists and the names of the finalists will be submitted
to Central Office on or before December 14.  The week we get back from the Christmas
Break we will conduct the interviews of the finalists.  The winner’s name will be
submitted to Robert Williams on or before January 8, 2010.

Some of you may not have known this, but..
Incentives for iLEAP and GEE
Basic on tests(each test … Math and ELA for iLEAP, Math and ELA for GEE, Science
and Social Studies for GEE) will get the students a free dress on Early Dismissal.
It will also allow them to be exempt from an exam in a class they have an A in prior
to the semester exam.
Mastery will get them an additional 1% in that subject in addition to the exemption
from an exam in every class with an A.
Advanced will get them an additional 3% in that subject in addition to the exemption
from an exam in every class with an A.
Mastery and Advanced earned on the GEE will get the above incentives in each of the
earned subject areas for the remainder of their time at CHS.
For instance, a 10th grader that scores Advanced in Math on the GEE would get 3%
added to EVERY Math class they took for the rest of their CHS career.
