Late breaking news from your friendly CHS PTO:
Biggie for Seniors – If a senior is planning to attend a four year university in Louisiana, The Board of Regents had made a change to the graduation requirements for the class of 2012. Graduates will need to have successfully completed four units of mathematics, English, science and social studies for admission to a Louisiana public four-year university.  A JPAMS call will be sent out to homes on Sunday night explaining this. There are some seniors(those planning on attending four-year universities in the state) that may need to change their schedule again so they can meet these requirements. The Guidance office will be ready to meet with seniors this Monday morning beginning at 7:00 a.m.
