Week 1 in the Books!
Hello Rattler Nation!
We had a great first week, and we are looking forward to our three-day weekend. The schedule changes are finalized and done. We had our counseling team work overtime to complete it as soon as possible. We went into every classroom this week and saw almost no phones and a ton of learning! We had a great Principal Coffee this morning. Coffee from now on will be at 9 am and on Zoom. You can view the presentation here:

Dr. Renfree---Welcome Video

We are currently making videos for Social Emotional Wellness and other topics.
Minimum Day: Our first minimum day is September 16th, 2022:
Athletic: ALL ATHLETIC INFORMATION--PLEASE GO TO https://chrattlers.com/. All athletic packets can be uploaded and handed in this way. You do not need to come in and drop them off.
Athletics is a very complex program. It's like running a whole separate school. While I can highlight a few things here, you must check that website daily and reach out to the proper coaches. This blog highlights sporting events with pictures and celebrations but doesn't get into the operations of athletics. Please bookmark that site, so you have it. CHHS has one of the most extensive programs in the county and state.
We are now doing an Athletic Weekly, and here is our FIRST edition:

Want to help us keep CHHS a fantastic place to be? There are three ways for you AND your student! Nominations are being taken now.
1. Foundation: Parent Group focused on fundraising for our students! Even if you can't donate your time, you can donate by joining as a member. Click here: https://canyonhillsfoundation.org/
2. School Site Council (SSC): This group determines how money in Title 1 and LCFF are spent (money for things that support ALL students). In addition, they have other responsibilities as well. We need three parents and two students. Email Nicholas Willis at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or your student is interested. If you are on another committee, we politely ask that you allow others to be able to participate.
2. Governance: This group discusses and advises the Principal on instructional issues and policies on campus. We are looking for three parents and two students. Email Elizabeth Ward at email@example.com if interested. If you are on another committee, we politely ask that you allow others to be able to participate.
Counselors are here to help you! Your students ask to see their counselor by going to the CHHS website and clicking on the "Counseling Tab"-then, they click on their counselor to fill out the form. Counselors will then call them to the office. The days when I was in high school, you went to the Counseling Office and waited around. This is much more streamlined today. However, in emergencies, you ABSOLUTELY can just come on in. Want to pop in and ask a question during the passing period...of course! Here's what the page looks like:
We have already calendared the Opening Parent Nights. Please mark your calendars, and it is also on the CHHS calendar.
