Parent Information Night – Sept 26th @ 6pm.

MOODLE , Parent Portal, MyPass, PLC, Dash one, Dash  two … our system is full of acronyms which you will hear your students and teachers discussing. As you and your child begin to navigate your way through school life it would probably be helpful to have a deeper understanding of CCHS school operations.  If you are new to CCHS (or would like a refresher) and interested in developing a deeper understanding in how to follow your student’s progress at school, receiving information on their learning and helping your son/daughter navigate their way through high school and beyond, this meeting is for you.

We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you.
