Principal's Message - February 3

Monday, February 3: 
--CHS students receive report cards for first semester. 
--CHS will host Sophomore Parent Night beginning at 6:00 pm in the CHS auditorium. We hope our families are able to attend on this rescheduled date. 

Wednesday, February 5th
--CHS will host its annual CommUNITY Dinner from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. This dinner is planned in conjunction with a few outreach teams of CHS. All families are invited to help us keep off our Black History Month activities by honoring the spirit of togetherness and unity. The dinner is catered for your enjoyment, and performances will follow in our auditorium. We look forward to greeting you there!

Carrboro High School has made a decision to postpone our quarterly grade-level assemblies and Positive Tuesday activities this week. This is due to the recent schedule interruptions and missed days of instruction. We will certainly let everyone know as soon as new dates are agreed upon by faculty. 

All high schools will reschedule Parent-Teacher Conferences originally scheduled for Thursday, January 30, 2014. This is a time consistent among the comprehensive high schools. We will resume scheduling and announcements about Parent-Teacher Conferences as soon as a new date is determined. 

As always, I appreciate your attention to the updates. Thank you for your time and cooperation in CHS efforts. If you have questions or a need for more information, feel free to contact the school at (919)918-2200. It remains a great time to be a Carrboro Jaguar!
