School Play, Lib Dub, End of Year Survey

Good Afternoon Rattler Nation,

I hope you are having a great week. We are selling Prom tickets and everyone is getting very excited for the end of the year activities. Students have been busy playing spring sports, filming our Lip Dub and ASB has been promoting a ton of activities on their Instagram. Here are some pictures below. Lastly, please spend a night out this upcoming week watching our new play "Next to Normal." The arts at CHHS are very important and we want to show our love for these programs which historically have been low on support. All you need to do is buy a ticket! I have never seen such great plays performed here and our students work very hard on them. Lastly, a HUGE congratulations to our Valedictorians and Salutatorian; we surprised them in class today.

Valedictorians: Tyler Bodenhamer and Morgan Moore

Salutatorian: Alyssa Murray


Parents and Families--

Many of you email me throughout the year providing feedback on events, issues or sports etc. However, many of those processes are complete for the year and can only be improved upon for the following year. We send out surveys and get less than 10 responses at a time. I receive way more than that in feedback and complaints. I want to be proactive and not reactive when addressing them and improving them.

I am begging you to fill this out so I know whats important to you so I and my team can better serve you and your families. This survey is looked at extensively and used to create and better the processes you experience at this school. I am here to serve your students and I want your input to do that. Here is the survey.

Do you have a Senior? Well, CHHS has a Booster Club so you can stay up to date on things and events about them:

The Canyon Hills/Serra Parent Class Boosters is a parent organization that supports your student's graduating class with activities and events not typically sponsored by the school. As your student approaches senior year, through fundraising and donations, this group helps offset the cost and implement activities like grad-night, prom, senior luncheon, graduation venue, powder-puff, and more.
