7th Grade Field Trip to Irons Oaks Wednesday 9/18

Seventh grade students have a wonderful opportunity for interactive learning and team building on a field trip to Irons Oaks on Wednesday, September 18.  Students will participate in the Teams Challenge Course, not the High Ropes Course, Climbing Tower, or Power Pole. Students were given the field trip information and waiver in advisory on or before Wednesday, September 4. 

Students must have a signed waiver in order to participate at Irons Oaks.  Please have your child return the signed waiver to his/her advisor as soon as possible.

Seventh graders will attend the outdoor Irons Oaks field trip despite any unfavorable weather conditions.  We highly recommend that your child comes to school dressed in layers.  We spend the entire day outside engaging in team-building activities.   Students who are under-dressed will be cold throughout the day. Students are reminded to bring a sack lunch, and no peanuts/tree nuts can be packed in field trip lunches. Please make sure that all items packed in the lunch are disposable/recyclable.

Well, there is a club or activity right here for you at CHMS! The PTO welcomes all students to attend the Clubs and Activities Fair on Thursday, September 26, 2019 right after school at 3:15:4:15 in the cafeteria. There are over 40 different clubs, activities, and sports available for students to be involved in at CHMS.
