    Wednesday, Nov. 18: Supply Distribution Day
    Nov. 23-24: Student-Led Conferences Begin
    Nov. 26-27: Thanksgiving Break (NO SCHOOL)


    SLCs begin next week

    Student-led conferences are a chance for students to reflect on their learning and present to their family members about their progress, and a chance for family members, advisors, and teachers to work in partnership. Advisors schedule a 20-minute appointment with each family in their advisory. The student should be the leading voice in this conference; if parents wish to follow up with other teachers, the advisor provides them with a CHS Directory and helps them communicate with teachers. These conferences will begin on Nov. 23 and last through early December. SLCs are required.


    Supply Distribution Day

    The next distribution event will be Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the main parking lot. Ninth grade humanities is expected to hand out supplies. Check with your teacher to see if you need to pick up any class materials.


    Order a yearbook!

    2020 has been a year like no other, and Cleveland Publications is determined to capture all of it. Now, you can purchase this historic 2021 yearbook for just $50! We are keeping the theme under wraps until the spring, but this book will be more interactive (think activity book with the same great coverage of Cleveland students and staff). Seniors have the option to purchase a bundle package which includes a variation of the following: personalized yearbook, a senior salute, a Class of 2021 baseball tee and a set of colored pencils to match the theme of the book. Prices vary based on the size of the salute. Feeling generous? Buy an extra book for a senior in need! 

    Payment plans are available! You can pay for your book in three (3) installments! Be sure to check the box on SchoolPay when purchasing. If seniors need financial assistance, check with the school social worker, Trisa Ibarra, to see if you qualify.

    Virtual Picture Day

    Since we will not be able to have our standard picture day, why not have a virtual one? Tuesday, Nov. 17, will be Virtual Picture Day where students will be able to submit their own portrait for the yearbook. Simply fill out the form below and attach a photo of yourself. Here are the instructions:
    PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS ARE NOT NECESSARY, BUT WELCOMED. Remember, the yearbook is also a history book. Pose in your photo the same way you would if it were a live picture day.
    1. Image should be in a JPG format
    2. Please upload only ONE photo
    3. Image should be a vertical headshot or head and shoulders shot. We will crop the photo to fit our yearbook guidelines. Please try to use a solid background or a background with minimal distractions.
    4. PLEASE: No hats, nothing that covers your face, no props (ie., sports equipment, flowers, pets/animals). WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ASK YOU TO SUBMIT A DIFFERENT PHOTO.
    5. The yearbook is considered a form of government ID. Images should NOT have filters of any kind.
    6. Maximum file size is 20 MB, 300 DPI. If you don't understand all the technical talk, just load the pic and if it doesn't work, you will receive a message from the yearbook adviser, Ms. Scribner.
