Top of PagePrincipal's Message

Welcome to the Month of December!

    Here's hoping that you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving Holiday! Thank you again to the Colonial Heights Chamber of Commerce for hosting the third annual Turkey Trot. Proceeds go directly back to our schools and our students, so the community support is greatly appreciated. You also may have seen our very own Christian Davis playing with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade All-American High School Band. It was so neat to see one of our own representing his family and his school so well.

    Hopefully, with the time off you are ready to embrace three more weeks of school before our next holiday break. We are busily trying to get through our material. Believe it or not, progress reports roll out on Thursday, December 4th and SOL tests begin on Wednesday, January 7th. Please encourage your student to keep up with his or her studies by reviewing material, participating in study sessions, and attending classes.

    December 4th also kicks off our annual concert celebration. Our Winter Band and Choir concert will occur at 6:30 p.m. on this date. There will also be a Madrigal Dinner hosted by the Culinary and Choir departments. This is the second year of the fundraising dinner. It takes place on both December 11th and 12th starting at 6 p.m. at the Colonial Heights Tech Center Café. If you are interested in attending the dinner and obtaining tickets, please contact The cost of the dinner is $15 per person or $25 per couple. Advance reservations are required. There is a $7 reservation deposit due by Friday, Dec. 5th.

    Our winter sports season is in full swing. On Saturday, December 6th, our CHHS wrestling team will be hosting its annual Holiday Classic Invitational at our gym. Doors open promptly at 9:30 a.m.

    The month concludes with a holiday spirit week starting on December 15th and a guest speaker for the students on Thursday, December 14th. The holiday spirit week and the speaker are hosted by our YADAPP students. The covered themes will include drug and alcohol awareness and making good life choices. Along with the YADAPP students, this event could not have been possible without the support of our School Board and the funding of the Aramark Corporation.

    As we round out 2014 and head into the next year, thank you again for your ongoing support. Have a blessed holiday season and a joy-filled new year!

    CHHS Principal
