Wondering If You Are Exempt From Finals?

Grades 9-12:   To be considered as being exempt from taking an individual final exam in any course, students in grades 9-12 must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have no more than 4 days of absences for the semester.  For the purposes of this policy, a student will be considered absent from class for in-school suspension (ISS), out-of-school suspension (OSS), verified contact with office (V), medical (X), or regular absence (A).  School sponsored events, such as co-curricular, extracurricular, and school sponsored field trips, will not count against a student’s absences.
  • Must not be considered tardy to class or advisory  more than six (6) times during the semester.  
  • Must not have been suspended from school (OSS) at any time during the semester.
  • Must not have any grades below C  on quarter or semester report cards for the current semester.
  • All students will have the option of taking the final exams.  If a student chooses to take an exam, the score will count in the final semester grade regardless of the impact on the grade.

(The counselor’s office will produce the list of students who meet the  criteria for final exam exemptions. )

FCCLA Promotes Safe Driving

FCCLA partnered with Teens in the Drivers Seat to encourage safe driving. The program seeks to save lives and reduce injuries among America’s youth by developing and delivering the nation’s best transportation safety programs and projects. According to their website, teens are most in danger driving because of distractions, nighttime/drowsy driving, speeding/racing, low safety belt usage, and impaired driving.

Softball Team Collecting Soda Bottles

The District Softball Tournament begins Saturday, and if in the championship game on Tuesday, the team wants to make noisemakers. They need empty, rinsed 16-20 oz bottles in the next few days. Please give to a softball player or Coach England.

Also, remember that if they play in the championship game, the school will be taking a pep bus that will leave at 2:50 on Tuesday. You will need a signed permission slip to ride the bus, and more information will be shared on Monday.

Juniors and Seniors Attend Reality Fair

CHS Juniors and Seniors attended a Reality Fair this morning in the West Multipurpose Room. A Reality Fair is an interactive financial education experience for students. The Reality Fair concept is a unique opportunity for students to experience some of the financial challenges they will face when they start life on their own. It’s a hands-on experience in which students identify their career choice and starting salaries then complete a budget sheet requiring them to live within their monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing, and food. Additional expenditures such as entertainment and travel are factored in as well. It was sponsored by Ozark Federal Credit Union and presented by Davine Conover with volunteers through the Piedmont Area Chamber of Commerce.
