Hidden in Plain Sight is an awareness program for parents. It’s designed to educate them on things that they may find in their child’s room, book bag, or car.
The Advanced Placement registration will begin on April 23. Our school has received state and national recognition because of the numbers of students taking the exams and their success rate. We (guidance and administration) anticipate a decline in future years of the number of participants based on the success of our CCP program at CHS. Students enrolled in CCP will earn transcripted credit to any state school in Ohio. The AP scores will not be needed. The CCP credit will suffice. Students looking to attend private institutions and schools out of the state will continue to seek AP credit to earn admittance and higher scholarship status.
We are pleased to announce two new courses coming to Chardon High School next fall. We are offering an Introduction to Business and a Business Ethics class both of which will be one semester each and will be dual enrollment. Students enrolled in these classes will receive credit from Lakeland Community College. Please contact the guidance department to register for these classes.
Below is a description of each course:
Introduction to Business
Grades 11-12 or permission of instructor- 1.0 credit (This course will be dual enrollment, so students enrolled will receive college credit from Lakeland)
This course provides an overview of the U.S. business world, focusing on the historical development of American business from the early years to the present. It includes major business functions: management, marketing, manufacturing, distribution, financial operations, and human resource management. It also focuses on business ethics, in theory and practice, in today’s highly competitive business environment.
Grades 11-12 or permission of instructor - 1.0 credit (This course will be dual enrollment, so students enrolled will receive college credit from Lakeland)
This course introduces students to the relevance and importance of ethics in business. It examines ethical considerations and dilemmas facing corporations, managers, and employees and develops ethical decision-making skills with a stakeholder focus. Students will become familiar with business ethics, views and theories, corporate social responsibility policies and practices, and the application of sustainability to business decisions.
We are excited to offer to this opportunity for our students.
Our students have initiated a Social Media campaign to say thank you to our two awesome assistant principals. They have challenged each other to tweet out a Thank You and include their twitter accounts. I am attempting to tag the Dept. of Ed with the hashtag #apweek. Feel free to join us and say thanks to Mr. Murray and Mr. Linn
We will end the week like all good educators with a cake in the main office!!
Congratulations to our 5th Place Science Olympiad Team. Their efforts are truly appreciated. Majority of the teams we compete against offer Science Olympiad as a course at their high school. Students at those schools are required to take the course to compete. This allows them the time in school to practice and review. Our students have committed to work after school with volunteers. These volunteers come home from work and go right to working with our children. They often have to beg for funds and find places to practice and work on their project. Congratulations! Furthermore, congratulations to Chardon High School’s Dance Team! They earned 1st place in the Champion Cheer Central competiton.
Chardon Library Book Buddies
Reading skills are important and your help is needed to encourage Chardon’s youngest students to keep reading over the summer. All you need to do is meet with a 1st or 2nd grader for 6 – one hour sessions at the Chardon Library. If you are interested in getting involved in your community and would like to be a Chardon Library Book Buddy, please call the Chardon Library @ 285-7601 to volunteer. This is also an opportunity to earn Community Service hours! Please plan to attend one mandatory informational meeting at the Chardon Library on Monday, May 9 at 7:00 OR Tuesday, May 10 at 3:00.
