Dear Parents, Students, Teachers and Staff,

Welcome to the CHHS 2016-2017 school year!  CHHS PTSA has another busy year planned with many activities scheduled that will help us achieve our objective of making CHHS a community of excellence. There is a great need for volunteers at many of these events. If you would like to help, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Dawn Treese.

I hope everyone will join PTSA and help us reach our goal of 100% PTSA membership. Your membership supports the programs and events we provide for our CHHS students and staff.  Your $10 PTSA dues are a great investment in your child's education.

Please contact me if I can help in any way or if you have questions. The CHHS PTSA is committed to the success of every student in our school, and we strive to make his or her experience positive and fulfilling.

Go Panthers!

Robyn Schmidt
