Free Online Reading Materials
The closure of our school libraries has made it difficult for students to access enough books, specifically fiction. The District Librarian has created a blog to provide information on free online reading materials.

Our students donate hundreds of hours each year to the community in service. Please contact us if you know of a project that our school could possibly help with and we will do our best to see that it happens!
We are proud of our professional dress code. Students wear khaki slacks and black school polo shirts. We dress for success at CHS!
