Warrior Rewind...September 2019

To All parents and Guardians,
Take a look at what we have been up to in Warrior Country!
● School Picture day was held this month. It was awesome to see the students self confidence boost when they arrived at school with every hair in place and big smiles on their faces!
● Our Open house was held last week as we welcomed all parents, grandparents and community members to see the great things that our students are accomplishing.
● As required by law, we conducted a lockdown drill this on 9/5/19 to continue our high priority on student safety.
● On 9/11/19, Mr. Reynard and a group of students lead us in the 911 Memorial assembly out on the front lawn.
● In partnership with CHOP, The Warrior GrubHub (Pictured below) opened on 9/23/19 in the high school. Students may visit to take “what they need” during that time period when given permission. The food is provided free of charge to our students.

● The entire high school participated in the contest on 9/17/19, Constitution Day. Each of the winners received a gift certificate from the Warrior Lounge.The CONSTITUTION DAY QUIZ WINNERS were...Senior High-Raeann Roupp and Junior High-Lucas Drever
● Our Warrior Mentor program has connected 11th graders with 7th graders who may be having a difficult time with the transition from the elementary school to the high school. They meet weekly for 30 minutes to talk, do activities and offer support to the 7th grade students.
● Out first Act 80 day occurred earlier this week with an early dismissal for students to allow for professional development. The staff dedicated time to attend training in Text Dependent Analysis, De-escalation strategies and Career Readiness curriculum mapping.
● The class of 2020 elected officers are President - Emily Ferguson, Vice-President - Ellianna Binford, Secretary - Madisyn Neal, Treasurer - Jadyn Ayres
● Our Flaming Foliage Representatives are Ellianna Binford and Josh Filling
● Our Laurel Representatives are Madisyn Neal and Zach Rentzel
● The 2019-20 Homecoming Court members are: Cheyenne Bastion Brown & Byron Marnati, Josie Kelley & Austin Palmer, Alyza Leonard & Garrett Storch, Rhiley McNett & Reese Allen, Angel Seeley & Owen Wesneski
● The Alpha Zeta Chapter is part of Delta Kappa Gamma, the education honorary society, and the following high school teachers belong to this organization: Michelle Harkness, Sheila Jackson, Colleen Kinney, and Stacey Segur.
● Casual for a Cause Helps People in the School and Community: Casual for a Cause (Jeans Days) is a fund that teachers donate to in order to assist students and their families who are struggling, whether it be tragic situations or economic difficulties. Also, this fund has donated to various organizations as well, such as the Children’s House, Giving Tree, and animal shelters.
● Dual-Enrollment Classes: CHS offers many classes that students can enroll in at a lower cost for college credit. Our high school teachers get approved to teach classes in their high school schedule as adjunct professors for these colleges. These course offerings are in English, Math, Science, and Social Studies for the cost of $100 per credit through Keystone and Lackawanna Colleges and free through Corning Community College. This means that a student can graduate from CHS with college credits, as long as he/she passes with a C or better and has paid the tuition, and these credits transfer to the college of his/her choice with the proper paperwork and transcripts.
● Advanced Placement (AP) Opportunities: CHS offers the following AP courses to its students: AP Biology (every other year), AP English, AP Environmental Science, and AP Psychology. In order for these classes to be offered, teachers have to go through a week-long training and an audit process by submitting and getting approved for their syllabus, units, and lessons by AP/College Board, and then, the classes have to be approved by the principal. These courses require rigorous academic work in and out of the classroom, and in May, students can apply their knowledge by taking the AP Exam for about $100. If students earn a 3, 4, or 5 on the Exam, they may be able to earn college credits, but they need to check on their colleges' policies regarding the required scores. Also, these AP courses are offered as dual-enrollment classes (see Dual-Enrollment Classes).
● Chapter 339 and Career Cruising:The teachers are receiving training in Chapter 339 so that they can create assignments and projects for students to be college and career ready when they graduate from high school. To assist with this PA mandate, CHS is utilizing Career Cruising as a main source for students' learning styles, career, and ability assessments and to house student journals/documents, which relate to their future career path, college enrollment, or military enlistment.
● Our high school book fair will be held on 11/4-11/11/19 in the Library

We are looking forward to the next month here in WARRIOR COUNTRY!
