Great CAS Opportunity

Juniors–if you live close to CHS, here’s a great way to pick up lots of volunteer hours and experience over the summer: helping out in the school’s front office. You would be working with the awesome Ms. Lord in the office, doing a variety of jobs that will have a direct and positive impact on the school. The work would run from June 4-July 19 (Mon-Thurs only), and the hours are from 8-5, though if you could only do mornings or afternoons, that could be an easy split or share with another student. If you’re interested and would like more information, please contact Mrs. Lord at [email protected] or just go see her in the front office.

IB Medal Ceremony

Everything you need to know about the IB medal ceremony:

  • It will be this Saturday, May 19, from 1-3 pm in the CHS auditorium and cafeteria. The best parking will be in the stadium lot.
  • Because space is so limited, please only bring up to four additional family members with you to the ceremony. We literally won’t have enough seats for everyone in the auditorium if this number is exceeded.
  • Seniors should be here for the line-up by 12:45. Let us know if you won’t be able to make it so we don’t hold the line for you.
  • Dress code is “dressy casual”/”Sunday best.” Nothing too fancy, but definitely no jeans, shorts, sneakers, etc. You’ll be taking a lot of pictures and want to look your best.
  • Wear your gown but not your cap. Leave your other cords and stoles at home as well–you’ll be getting your IB medal and it should be the only decoration for the day.
  • Ask Mr. Jones or Mr. Penick for more information if you have any questions.

CAS Opportunity: Volunteer at Jonquil Festival

One of the booths at the upcoming Jonquil Festival will be the Smyrna Vision booth. The city of Smyrna is asking for student volunteers from CHS to work short (only one hour) shifts throughout the day. The plan is to pair up CHS student volunteers with our adult volunteers so that each can bring his or her own experience and information to the table. Most of your time will be spent interacting with the visitors at the festival.

Signing up is easy–just use this link:
