A group of 23 CHS juniors and seniors attended TRC Preview Day as a way to learn more about what TRC has to offer. Students were given an overview of the college which included a presentation with important dates and deadlines. They covered the application process, financial aid, housing application process, and campus activities and clubs. Afterward, they took a tour of the campus. Before leaving, students were given pizza for lunch and participated in a question and answer session. The visit was part of the RootED program led by counselor Tonia Miriani. The of goal of the RootEd program is to to ensure high school students, particularly those in rural communities, have an advisor exclusively focused on helping them achieve success following graduation.

Mrs. Martin’s Biology and Chemistry classes had labs yesterday.
Biology Lab: Using a scaled image of a variety of organisms, students measured and analyzed the digestive tract to identify the organism’s feeding niche.
Chemistry Lab: Students just finished Unit 2: Dimensional Analysis. In this lab, students practiced reading off of a ruler, graduated cylinder, and scale. Students assigned the correct units for each measurement as well as manipulating these numbers in calculations (using proper sig fig rules of course!) in order to determine the thickness of a piece of aluminum foil.
Mrs. Johnson’s ProStart class visted Eagle Sky earlier this week, touring the kitchen facility and speaking with Chef Marty. While there, they were able to make their own pizzas. This is a great learning experience for our students.
See You At the Pole took place at 7:15 on September 28. FCA member Abby Cheney, who led the event, said that it was good to see different kids come out and pray for the school year.
See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Decades later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.
See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.
