There will be a student council meeting in Room #620 during 4th period on Thursday, March 2nd. Call slips will be sent out.

Hello Chipman, we are less than $500 away from sending a veteran on an Honor Flight!  The flight leaves in April so we are having one last push from kids.  We will supply each advisory with a bucket to collect coins for Honor Flight. The class that collects the most money will get a pizza party during lunch. The contest will start March 1 and conclude March 15th. The theme is March madness. Anything you can do to help motivate your students is welcome! If your Jars get full before the time is up simply text or email Colleen Wright at CJHBC@outlook.com or 661-302-7213.  We will be having an assembly with the Honor Flight program (they bring a power point and the veteran that is being sent by us or one that has already gone) at the end of March and we are shooting for having the Pizza party for the winning class the same day.  If every student brought just $1 we will have raised what is needed!  Thank You in advance for your cooperation!
