Principal's Message for the week of March 17th

As a result of the tumultuous weather we've experienced over the last month, all CHCCS high schools were forced to reschedule the ACT for this Tuesday, March 18th, for all eleventh graders. 

This test is extremely important because it provides feedback for individual students as well as the school about our educational program. Additionally, NC uses the information obtained from the ACT as a part of the whole-school accountability measures. It is essential that all eleventh graders participate in this testing session. There will be no make up opportunity and CHS must show improvement in our participation measures. Parents, we are imploring you to ensure all eleventh graders are present and well-rested for the ACT on Tuesday, March 18th. If you have questions about the ACT and its significance, feel free to contact your child's administrator or counselor for clarification. 

Tuesday, March 18th, CHCCS is hosting a Budget Focused Dialogue in the Carrboro High School Commons Area beginning at 6:30. District leaders will meet with representatives to gather input for the creation of the district's 2014-15 Budget. Members of each school's School Improvement Teams (SIT), PTA and school community have been selected to participate in this focused dialogue, but all members of the community are invited to attend and observe. For more information, visit the 2014-2015 Budget Website. You can find a link on the CHCCS Main Website. 

Also beginning this week, our Theatre Department presents the spring production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
