Dear Sophomores,  

December is here and the end of the first semester is quickly approaching!  We hope you take some time to reflect on your experiences during 2022 and what lies ahead in 2023.  We know you have faced many challenges this year but are proud of all the progress we have seen from our CHS 10th grade class!   

As we get closer to winter break, it is important to get caught up on any missing assignments and prepare for semester finals.  Remember, morning RTI help is always available from 7:30-8:15 to get help from your teachers and catch up on missing work.  Use your time wisely during the upcoming holiday break if you have missing work you need to finish! 

After we return to school in January, you will only have 2 weeks before finals!  Time has really flown this year…

Many sophomores have asked, “what can I do now to prepare for college?” The best first step is to keep your grades up. Your grade point average (GPA) is used to determine eligibility for admission to college and for certain scholarships. Scholarships are awarded to students based on certain criteria, like GPA or athletic performance, and they do not have to be paid back. So, keep setting your goals appropriately!
