School Happenings

On February 5, 2019, Kyra Wood (grade 10) became the youngest Centaur in school history to arrive at 1000 points in a 98-28 victory over McKinley. Kyra had 45 points, 8 rebounds, 8 steals and 8 blocks to lead the team. 8th grade sensation, Ava Purks, had 23 points and 5 assists. Freshman Kaori Segars grabbed 13 points and six steals. Sophomores McKenzie Alveri and Natalie Milne each added six pts. Perhaps the most impressive thing about this young Centaur team is that they play like a family, support each other and demonstrate great sportsmanship. CHS could not be more proud of this squad and excited for the good things to come!

Join us to dance and sing away those winter blues on March 15,16, and 17 as City Honors presents ‘Mama Mia’! Friday and Sat performances at 7pm, Sunday at 2pm. $7 for adults, $5 for students.

Congrats to our boys varsity basketball team which captured the Yale Cup II Championship on February 13, 2019 with a win over The Arts Academy!

This will be the second meeting of the new Parent Garden Committee which has been set up to help plan and manage the numerous garden projects, events, and fundraising efforts that we now undertake annually as part of garden programming. Many people had conflicts and couldn’t make it to the first meeting in January so we hope to see more of you at this February meeting! The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 26, at 6:30 PM at the home of lead parent volunteer, Molly Hutton, 81 Highland Ave., Buffalo 14222 (refreshments provided!).

We are excited about putting together a committed group of parents who believe in outdoor education, organic food production, and environmental stewardship. Please join us on February 26.

RSVPs are helpful but not necessary. All are welcome—please bring a friend!

On January 2, I sent home a letter with the students of Mrs. Jennings to give to their parents (CHS French & Spanish Teacher). This letter shared that Mrs. Jennings will be on indefinite medical leave due to a sudden and acute medical condition. See my letter here 

A co-worker of Mrs. Jenning’s husband recently established a GoFundMe page to support the Jennings family during their time of need. I have been asked to share the link to this page which explains more about Mrs. Jennings condition and her family:

Thank you for your consideration. The outpouring of support from students, staff and parents is a tribute to Mrs. Jennings and our school community. Thank you also to Mrs. Roche (CHS French teacher) who has spearheaded efforts at CHS to assist the Jennings family. 

Letters and cards to Mrs. Jennings can be directed to the main office of the school. We will have someone bringing them to her regularly.

Thank you-
Dr. Kresse
