The curtain rises on the CHSS Formal this Friday, May 10 at 6 pm in our cafeteria. The Formal Committee, with the assistance of VP Ms. Jana Bayer-Smith, are working very hard to decorate the space, provide the right ambience, arrange great food, and make sure that the 2013 Formal is a night to remember! Many staff will be attending the event and we're all looking forward to seeing our senior students resplendent in their gowns and tuxedoes, dresses and suits. It promises to be a special evening for everyone.
This Friday's event is the only CHSS Formal event and it is important to add that any other event planned to mark the end of the year or the end of the high school experience is not sanctioned by CHSS, nor is it supported by the Avon Maitland District School Board. In fact, any other such event would simply be a private party on private property and the safety and security of any participants would be the sole responsibility of the owner of the property on which the event is held.
Jordann Murray won a $100.00 art award at the Blyth Student Art Show for her painting below. It's wonderful to see her artistic skills appreciated by our community. Her work and 10 other CHSS students will be on display this month. It is fantastic to see all the creations from Huron Perth and great to see that students are really expressing themselves and experimenting with a wide variety of media and styles.
Corey Pollard (a former CHSS student) is going to volunteer in Kenya this summer. She has asked CHSS to help her with school supplies. She would like to take a hockey bag full of supplies. If you are able to donate pencils, pens, paper, crayons, etc. please bring them in this week. Student council should have a bin in the office, so please put donations there. Thanks!
The junior boys soccer team came out strong in both of their games on Thursday. Zack Hammel opened the scoring in the opening game, but the visitors poured it on in the second half to steal a 2-1 win from the Phoenix. In the second game, David Metzger's hat trick wasn't enough, as the Phoenix took their foot off the gas and allowed the SCSS Rams to escape with a 4-3 win. The weather played a huge role in both games, as Mother Nature threw rain, wind, sleet, and snow at the players. The Phoenix will be working hard to improve during next week's practices before travelling to Goderich on May 2 for more league action.
These two figure drawings were just completed by grade 10 students. The large quote by J.F. Kennedy was a project inspired by our custodian Larry Dalton in semester one. The Grade 11 art class began the process and a variety of grade 9 and GLE students helped complete the work.
