June Regents Exams will be held on Monday, June 3 and Tuesday, June 18 to Tuesday, June 25. Monday, June 17 is a regular day of attendance for all students grades 5-12. Students in grades 9-12 do not attend school on Regents exam days unless they are taking a Regents Exam.  They should only be here for scheduled testing and must exit the school when they are done.

High school students who take Regents exams should report to the Auditorium at 8:00 am for morning exams and 12:00 pm for afternoon exams. Students who have an early start time for afternoon exams have been notified by their teachers. 8th graders taking a Regents exam will resume regular classes after their exam.

At this point you should know if your child is attempting one of the June Regents exams. If you are uncertain, please be sure to review the CHS Regents exam schedule with your child HERE  and confer with your child’s teachers/counselors if necessary.

After a record number of CHS students qualified for the State Championship for Speech & Debate this year in New York City, we had the most students ever to advance to Day 2 of the quarterfinals.
Highlights included:

  • In his 1st state tournament ever, freshmen Roman Rogalski finished among the top 24 debaters in his category.
  • Sophomore Ella Kaderbeck was also among the best to qualify for Day 2 in her speech category.
  • Joining Ella and advancing in Oral Interpretation was senior Alexis Marshall!
  • After going nearly perfect with a 4-1 debate record on Saturday, senior Gabby Merlo lost a close debate to the eventual state finalist on Day 2.

Congratulations to all 23 students who qualified to attend the state championships and to all the members of the team for an unprecedented year of success at tournaments throughout the year.

Thank you to our dedicated and fearless CHS Speech and Debate Team Advisor, Mr. Belge!

So many wonderful things are about to spring out of our Pelion Community Garden!
