CHS Family Bulletin, November 4, 2022

Hello, Churchill families and students;

Happy first week of November!  It’s hard to believe we are into November already and creeping up on the end of the first trimester.  This month will fly by, and before you know it December and the start of 2nd Trimester will be here.  If you have not already, I would encourage you to reach out to your students’ teachers to check in about grades, missing assignments, and ways that you can support your students’ academic success.  I would also encourage you to talk to your student and have them show you their Canvas classes and assignments.  So many wonderful things are happening in our classes here at Churchill, and it’s always fun to hear the student’s perspective on what they are learning.

Daylight Savings happens this weekend.  Remember to “Fall back” and set your clocks back an hour on Saturday night.  I hope that you all enjoy your extra hour of sleep this weekend and as always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Missy Cole

Principal

Churchill High School
