Hello! My name is Sylvia Fill I am a senior here at Chardon and my senior project is a video dedicated to the entire senior class set to the song Are We Still Young by Grant, featuring vocals by Jessi Mason. This song is about the wonders of being a kid, the uncertainties of growing up, and optimism for the future, topics which I think are important to all of the senior class.
The video consists of images submitted by the senior class themselves, including as many of them as possible, video shot at home and at school by me, and pictures taken by G-TV and Mr. Murray of the senior class from throughout this year. ENJOY!
Fees: Misc, School, Lunch, Library
School fees are due to Chardon Local Schools. Payable at your student's individual school.
Please look at your student's Infinite Campus account under “Fees” to see what is owed for each child.

Important Reminder: ALL SENIOR FEES ARE DUE IN FULL PRIOR TO GRADUATION.

Happy Mother's Day
Love you, mom!
After everything you've done for me — the opportunities you've handed me, the countless mood swings you've endured from me, the life you've given up for me — I'm supposed to send you a card with flowers, and that's supposed to be enough?
Flowers, cards and massage gift certificates do not get my point across. Taking you out to dinner won't do it justice. Buying you balloons isn't going to inflate my point. All of it seems so… trite.
A Hallmark card won't ever be able to explain exactly why I love you.
Exactly why I'm proud to call you my mom. Exactly how grateful I am for you.
Instead, I'll just tell you.
I'll tell you exactly why I respect you, not try and fit it into some two-by-two-inch card.
I will tell you exactly what I should say every day of every month of every year. I'll tell you exactly why I love you.
Happy Mother's Day to all of our CHS Moms!
Douglas Murray, Principal
