Honor Roll, Dances, VAPA, and More

Hello Rattler Nation-

Happy Fri-YAY! We had a wonderful week that was busy with many late nights. We had Spring Sports, Dances (yes, more than one), and Honor Roll Assembly, and our students have been busy doing so many things!

We have a congratulations to our VAPA Dept: Many of our students were selected for

Honor Groups: This is a huge accomplishment; they work with other students from around the district. It's a fun event where the best of SDUSD can play together.

Front Row: Danieska Mejia Estrada (Violin - Honor Orchestra), Kyra Weiner (Trumpet - Honor Band), Sevilla Baldivez (Cello - Honor Orchestra), Nicholas Urmaza (Oboe - Honor Band and Orchestra), Hallee Zahn (Clarinet - Honor Band)

Back Row: Adam Anthony (Bass - Honor Orchestra), Koi Langley (Soprano - Honor Jazz Choir), Macy Bourda (Soprano - Honor Choir), Jack Phillips (Guitar - Honor Jazz Band)

Not Pictured: Sydney Brown (Violin - Honor Orchestra)

Honor Roll:

We had an excellent Honor Roll, celebrating all students with a 3.5 and above. It was a great event, and we are so proud of them!

Dances: We had Winter Formal AND our ROTC Cadet Ball the same night! It was so much fun, and Jonn Pisapia WOWd students with an impromptu dance.

Latino Film Festival:

CHHS Students took a field trip to the Latino Film Festival. I also enjoyed watching a movie called Si Se Puede: A Chicano Love Story about a couple who have been and continue to be prominent in the Chicano Community since the 1960s and worked alongside Ceasar Chavez. Their work and presence are still a force through our Chavistas Service Clubs. They were at the film's showing, inspiring our students and empowering them to keep moving the needle toward Chicano rights in San Diego.

Saturday School is how you make up work and clear those tardies!

Very Slow Week Leading into Spring Break. On March 29th, I will post a blog for the week we return so you are ready to return to school!



We are now doing an Athletic Weekly; this is created with the most accurate data we have at the time, and we understand things change at the last minute, so always check MaxPreps as well.

Athletic Weekly:


Dear Senior Parents,

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)<>  application and CA Dream Act Application (CADAA) window is now open. We encourage you and/or your student to create<> an FSA ID account and begin the application. The FAFSA<> is used to determine eligibility for various student aid, including federal, state, and school-based, as well as grants and scholarships. FAFSA funding can help pay for community college, a credential program, and career technical schooling, in addition to the traditional four-year college. The application window closes on April 2.

FAFSA has made changes to its application. In 2020, Congress passed the FAFSA Simplification Act<> with a focus on reducing the number of questions on the application and making federal aid more accessible. The new application process requires every contributor<> (student, the student's spouse, a biological or adoptive parent, or the parent's spouse), who is providing information on the FAFSA form, to create an FSA ID. Parents/contributors who do not have a Social Security number will also need to create an FSA ID.

Undocumented/dreamer students are not eligible to fill out the FAFSA. Students may fill out the California Dream Act Application (CADAA), which is required to determine financial aid for California AB 540 eligible students. Click here to learn more<>.

FAFSA and CADAA help is available! Contact your high school counselor and/or visit our district Counseling and Guidance website<> for resources. 

Sincerely, Dr. Erica Renfree Principal

We are excited to have our cal soap rep, Poncho, back on our team. He is here to help our seniors with their FAFSA/Dream Act applications. Poncho is here Mondays and Fridays from 8 am - 1 pm. Take advantage of this opportunity to complete your FAFSA for free money towards your college tuition.
