Friends and Families:
The opening to our first late arrival was very successful. Our students and staff are becoming very acclimated to the new schedule. I know that I have sent many communications, been on the announcements, posted on Twitter, and have talked to students, staff, and parents face to face about the hybrid schedule. Today is the first time in school history that we experienced a regularly scheduled class day with ninety minutes of learning/period. Our teachers are engaging students in project based learning, labs, hands-on lessons, and deeper discovery of the content.
We had all hands on deck this morning to proactively move traffic between car riders and Maple Elementary. It really was a smooth and seamless transition. All students were at their designated schools by 9 AM. As a gentle reminder, please use discretion on the roads and use proper planning. Canfield Drive is OPEN for business. Please use this route for all drivers that are coming from north end of the school, and for any high school student arriving after 8:50 AM. This will help keep Maple and Chardon Avenue open for Maple Elementary. It is mission critical that students arrive on time for school. Students have more than enough time to plan for proper arrival times while our teachers are collaborating in their Professional Learning Communities.
Friday is going to be an awesome day. We have 70 students heading off to Leadership Camp for most of the day. The students are going have the opportunity to collaborate, plan, and be motivated for the new year. We have a special guest (Todd Waites) coming to speak to the attendees...who will return to CHS to speak to the entire student body to close the day.
Get Ready for Friday! Home against West G
