Dear Students, Parents, and Staff, 

Last Days of School

This time of year is very busy with end of year activities and events. The Class of 2022 Senior Graduation took place on Friday, June 10, 2022. Congratulations and Best of Luck to all the graduating seniors!  

Here is a link to the video – CHS 2022 Graduation Video

There will be many types of events at the elementary, middle and high schools during this last week of school. These events and activities are a tribute to the hard work and dedication you’ve shown throughout the school year. Whether the event is for academics, sports, end of year school dances or your school’s field day, it’s important to reflect on what you’ve accomplished during the school year.

With the school year coming to a close on Thursday, June 23, 2022, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a restful and enjoyable summer. We look forward to seeing you back in school on September 6th and 7th for the 2022-2023 school year.
