That's it! The school year 2020-2021 comes to an END - 😭
Dear CHS Students:
There's no doubt that this school year brought us many - MANY challenges. We started our school year with so many unknowns and unanswered questions. Not only were we fighting a pandemic; but, there was so much uncertainty on how school was going to happen since schools across the US were still closed.
We began our school year learning how to use Microsoft Teams - the new platform we used to connect remotely. This platform was new to us all. I must say you were very patient with your teachers. Hopefully, all teachers were patient with you too.
Throughout the school year, we had five first days of school - WOW! Between remote learning, hybrid, and face-2-face - These five first days of schools served as fresh starts for us. Some quarters in both semesters were better than others, but we made it.
I sure hope you took advantage of the support offered throughout the school year. We know you cannot do this alone. Coaches, resource staff, guidance counselors, and teachers were all available to help you through. I sure hope you NEVER find yourself alone in this HS journey.
Congratulations on making it to the end! I have several of you moving on and entering the workforce or college life. Wherever you go - You will always have a place in our hearts.
I hope you are proud of yourself as much as we are proud of YOU! If, by chance, you faced failures this school year - IT'S OKAY! Failures should serve as stepping stones to do even greater things.
Please, stay safe over the summer and stay connected - Be sure to follow me on my teacher pages!
