The beauty of Spring is on the horizon. The birds are beginning to chirp, blossoms are seeking the warmth of the sun, and the weather is dawning into a new season. Welcome to the beauty of this short season in Northeast Ohio. Embrace this time, brace for the Spring showers for the April and May flowers will bloom shortly.
Living in this region, we become accustomed to the highs and lows of the weather, but there is one weather pattern we can control...our personal weather.
Every day, we walk our routines with our words, deeds, and behaviors. We, in turn, carry our own weather. Mr. Armelli is a perfect example of this mantra. He stands outside in the rain, snow, and sun exclaiming to ALL: It's a beautiful day!
Now, more than ever--carrying our own feelings about our autonomy, our place in this world, and connectivity to others need to rise to the surface of those things that we can control.
We are finally in Spring! We are finally at Spring Break. Take time to re-energize and focus on the long and winding road that we will face on April 1- May 25. We got this is!
CHS Academic Decathlon
Congratulations to the CHS Academic Decathlon team. They worked hard at State Competition last weekend where they persevered through two days of objective testing and performance assessments. (always with smiles on their faces) Team members are Marko Milic, Reese Schneider, Hannah Holbert, Molly Greene, Kara Connolly, and Meredith McKeon. The team is returning four medal winners next year and hopes to add to their numbers. Current students should talk to their guidance counselor to become part of this winning tradition.
Every year, we publish the senior handbook to help assist parents and senior students with the many events that celebrate our graduating class.

The following students were selected, by the American Legion, to participate in Buckeye State this summer.
What is Buckeye Girls State?
Buckeye Girls State is the name given to Ohio's Girls State program, which was designed to educate Ohio's young women in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of good citizenship. By getting involved in the process, Delegates can learn more about City, County and State Government in one week than they will learn in an entire semester of high school.
The Ohio American Legion Auxiliary has been a proud sponsor of Buckeye Girls State for the past sixty-four years. The program has been honored by such organizations as Freedom's Foundation at Valley Forge and the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
What is Buckeye Boys State?
American Legion Buckeye Boys State is an eight-day hands-on experience in the operation of the democratic form of government, the organization of political parties, and the relationship of one to the other in shaping Ohio government.
Founded in 1936, Buckeye Boys State is the largest Boys State program in the nation with an attendance of over 1,200 young men annually, representing nearly 600 Ohio High Schools, several on-line High Schools, and the Home Schooled Community.
The American Legion Buckeye Boys State program is sponsored by the Ohio American Legion, the largest veterans organization in the State of Ohio.
At Boys State, young men learn about city, county, and state government through a non-partisan objective education approach. The young men also form friendships which will last a lifetime!
Thank you to the American Legion for sponsoring this program for our students.

Please look at your student's Infinite Campus account under “Fees” to see what is owed for each child.
All Participation fees for the Fall/Winter Season are due.
DO NOT PAY SPRING Participation fees until they are posted in Infinite Campus. This takes a little time to get the final official rosters from the coaches added and adjustment made where needed.
