Our Students

Parents driving their child to school are reminded that first period now starts at 8:08. Students learn more and see more success when they are here on-time each day! Parents should target 7:55 as arrival time for their child so they have plenty of time to get settled and to class on-time.

Our yellow and metro bus configuration at dismissal has been modified this year to increase student safety. Parents are asked to exercise patience and expect delays if navigating an automobile on Fosdick Street at dismissal. Reuniting our full original campus as a part of the Fosdick Field Restoration Project promises to help separate different forms of traffic and will increase curb space for vehicle loading/unloading. In the meantime, we ask again that all parents anticipate traffic will move slowly and standing room will be limited on Fosdick Street at dismissal.

Cardinal Craze week wrapped up at CHS last week with a flourish. In the week-long competition to win ‘The Rock’, the 8th graders proved victorious by a hair over the senior class who took second place and the grade 11 students who took third place. This is first time an 8th grade class has won The Rock and the second time the Class of 2022 has won The Rock.

Just as importantly as the CHS spirit that was on full display throughout the week, were some of the outcomes to benefit others. CHS was able to send off a truck load of supplies to Puerto Rico to help with hurricane relief. In addition, nine full carloads of non-perishable food items were dropped off by Dr. Kresse and a group of student volunteers to the Macedonia Food Pantry on Wednesday. These donations will help to sustain the food pantry throughout the winter as it assists families in need. This is largest donation CHS has ever made to the food pantry! The Macedonia community wishes to express that they are overwhelmed and grateful for the support from their neighbors at CHS. Thank you to all the students, staff and CHS families who helped to make Cardinal Craze week a success this year!
