Monday, September 17th is Open House at CHHS! Between the New Parent Meeting and Get Fit Day, we hope that most of the necessary information you will need for the year has been made available to you and would like to offer that evening as the make up for all students who were unable to attend Get Fit Day. We desperately need to ensure that all uniforms are taken care of by this evening, so please make this a priority! While we will not be sharing any information specific to choir that evening, we would love to still see all of the choir parents and will be available to answer any questions you may have! We will be in the Old Choir Room, F134 for the fittings and any Open House guests.
