October 2021

Fall has arrived and our first semester is moving along quickly. We have many exciting things happening at CTHS and I’d like to share a few highlights with you.

On Monday and Tuesday, October 4 and 5, forty students from grades nine through twelve along with seven staff members will be trained in the Safe School Ambassadors program. This program focuses on teaching students how to build positive relationships with others and to serve as student ambassadors to build a positive, safe school climate on our campus.

The Herff-Jones representatives will be presenting graduation cap, gown, and invitation information to our senior class on Thursday, September 30 and will be on campus to receive orders for these items after school on October 5 from 2:30 – 6:00 p.m. and during the lunch periods on October 6 from 10:00 am until Noon.

Students will enjoy a two day holiday on Monday, October 11 and Tuesday, October 12 as our staff participates in both district and campus staff development sessions. On Wednesday, October 13, we will administer the PSAT exam to students in grades 9, 10, and 11 and the SAT exam to students in grade 12.

On Tuesday evening, October 19, our National Honor Society will host their induction ceremony to welcome new members to the Society. This program begins at 6:30 p.m. in our lobby and students and parents are welcome to attend.

We will have extended day tutorials and try-outs for the annual CTHS Talent Show after school on Wednesday, October 20. On Saturday, October 23, our counseling and College Now staff will host a FAFSA Help Session from 8 am until Noon to assist students and parents with their financial aid applications and questions.

CTHS will host our annual Fall Festival on Friday evening, October 29 from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m. Students must purchase a $5 ticket to enter the festival and can purchase tickets for booths, food, and prizes for $1. Proceeds from the admission tickets benefit the senior class of 2022 and additional proceeds benefit various clubs and organizations on campus. Students must have their ticket and school ID to enter. Once students leave the festival, they are not allowed to return.

We encourage and remind students and staff to practice COVID mitigation strategies and continue to notify families via call out messages when we are notified of a positive case. Please contact our campus nurse if you have any questions or need assistance with any health-related questions.

Thank you for continuing to work with us to support your students and our staff!
