Turnabout “MASK-ERADE” Fundraiser In Full Swing

No indoor celebrations? No large gatherings? No problem!

CHMS’s unique fundraising non-event, Turnabout 2020, has arrived! PTO is so thankful for the opportunity to assist and support CHMS in this way.

PTO works year-round with our school community to identify needs, provide support and enhance learning. Your past donations have purchased sound panels for the cafeteria, exercise equipment for the gym, bike racks, flexible classroom seating… and so much more. You have made such a positive and immediate impact!

Please consider continuing to support CHMS by donating here. 

No matter the amount, your donation is 100% appreciated!

CHMS Student Picture Day(s)

All hybrid students, both a.m. and p.m., will have their pictures taken during their LA/ELA classes on Wednesday, November 4 or Thursday, November 5. Students will be notified on Monday which day their picture will be taken.

Remote students, please plan to attend on Wednesday, November 4 between 10:40 and 11:10 a.m. or between 2:35 and 3:05 p.m. or on Thursday, November 5 between 9:57 and 10:27 a.m. or 1:52 and 2:22 p.m.

The picture day process involves minimal contact with others. At their time, students  should report to the back of the school building.  There will be three-sided tents set up outside.  The tents will be located on the west end of the building nearest the Park District facilities.  Students should stand in the shortest line and maintain six feet distancing from others with their face mask on until their photo is taken. Your online orders may be completed in advance here. Questions? Please call HR Imaging Partners Inc. Customer Service at 815-433-1766 or visit the company website.

For best results DO NOT wear green clothing on picture day.

Remote student parents may stay and wait in their vehicles as students will progress through the photo lines quickly. Consider using the parking lot at the west end of the building nearest the Park District or the Prospect overflow lot between CHMS and Prospect Elementary School.  Please instruct your child to meet you in one of those locations after their photo session is complete.

David Epstein

Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

  • Tuesday, November 17, 2020
  • 7:00pm – 8:15pm
  • Zoom Webinar

New York Times best-selling author and science writer David Epstein has made it his mission to uncover the keys to achieving high performance in any domain, and to debunk popular myths along the way.

Epstein shows that at every stage of life, from the development of children in math, music, and sports, to students fresh out of college trying to find their way, to mid career professionals in need of change, to retirees looking for a new vocation—generalists triumph as the world around them becomes increasingly specialized.

The presentation is free and open to all. Registration is required as each viewer receives a unique link. This event will be recorded and will be available ONLY to those who register for the event.  If you are unable to attend the live-stream, but will want to view the recording, please register. Register here.
