"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..."
It certainly has been a chilly start to the month. We have just rounded out nine weeks, with report card distribution slated for the high school on Monday, November 10th. Because we have a new information system, the report cards will look a little different to our returning parents and students. Even though the structure of the document may have changed, all the pertinent information is there. If there are any questions or class concerns, please start with the immediate teacher first. The school counseling office and administration is here to assist, as well.
We hold our Fall Athletic Awards on November 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the Auditorium. However, we still have football and boys' and girls' volleyball games to play. Please continue to come out to events and support our athletes as they take aim at conference, regional, and hopefully, state titles.
On Election Day, our teachers partook in a wonderful breakfast provided by our local Chamber of Commerce and prepared by our Culinary Arts students. Staff then enjoyed Convocation with musical presentations by our high school band and speeches by our City Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Dana Barefoot, and the State Superintendent, Dr. Steven R. Staples.
Our awards season begins with a locally-sponsored Optimist Club Dinner for honored seniors and their parents on November 18th at 7:00 p.m. National Honor Society and BETA Club Inductions are on November 17th at 6:30 p.m.
As we round out the month, our Thanksgiving Holiday will begin on Wednesday, November 26th with a half-school day for students and staff. Thursday, November 27th and Friday, November 28th, will be full days off. I would encourage you to participate in the Chamber of Commerce's Third Annual Turkey Trot festivities. The sign-up forms are located on this website to the left of this message. If you scroll down the side, you will find the forms. All proceeds go back to the school you indicate you are representing on the form.
Have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
