"CHHS band drummer to march in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade"
"Christian Davis, drummer for the Colonial Heights Marching Colonials, will represent Colonial Heights High School as one of 185 student musicians from across the country marching in the 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade..."
The leaves are finally falling and the temperatures are dropping, autumn is definitely in full swing. We just wrapped up Parent/Teacher Conferences and Homecoming week. I want to thank our PTSO parents for providing our staff with a delicious taco dinner before our parents arrived. I also want to thank all of the parents who attended conferences and helped the division with an accreditation survey.
Homecoming week was a lot of fun. The kids and the staff were pretty spirited. The week ended with a Senior Powderpuff win, a pep rally with our King Brian Gwaltney crowned, a quarter where our Superintendent took the Ice Bucket challenge, a football game where our Queen Andrea Nadeau was announced, and a dance where our kids did not want to leave. PTSO again outdid themselves with the decorations and goodies at the event.
Looking ahead, we have our Writing SOLs that our 11th grade students and teachers have been busily working towards. Our competition cheerleaders will be heading to York High School to defend their conference title. Golf's season has concluded, but there is still field hockey, football, cross country, and volleyball to enjoy. Right now, our boys' volleyball team is undefeated in the Central District. The Richmond Times Dispatch just acknowledged them as a team "on the bubble" to watch. As we advance in our season, hopefully, our bubble will continue to rise.
Our outdoor band competitions continue with upcoming events at Massaponax and Powhatan. Our Chorus Chorale will be showcasing their talents with a fall concert. I would encourage you to attend any of the above events and see why there is a lot of Colonial Pride in our building and our community. We have a great school, supportive community, caring teachers/staff, and some pretty awesome students, if I do say so myself.
