Employers are launching their United Way and SEFA payroll deduction enrollments right now. Don’t miss this opportunity to help our students! Families and alumni can contribute through any United Way Campaign in the United States! Simply write the name of the City Honors/FMP Foundation on the enrollment form provided by your employer and the Foundation’s agency code (5326 for United Way, 57-00391 for SEFA). If you have not received a form, consult with your organizations’ payroll department for assistance. Payroll deductions are a smart way to make your gift to the Foundation’s Annual Fund. 37% of our students at CHS come from below the poverty line. Your gifts help the CH/FMP Foundation as it works to see that no student’s learning experience on the Hilltop is compromised by a lack of funds! Learn more about the Foundation and its Annual fund here: https://cityhonors.org/support-chs/ch-fmp-foundation/.

Here are just a few of the things you support at CHS by giving to the Foundation:

-Athletic team gear and equipment

-Extracurriculars such as: Speech & Debate, Chess, Masterminds, African Dance & Drum, Key Club, AP Chemistry Club

-Equipment and materials for science, math, and visual arts courses

-CHS Writing Center

-STARS Program for students with autism

-Fosdick Field Restoration Project

-Reforesting our campus and landscape enhancements

-The International Baccalaureate Program

-Babel Literature Series at CHS

-and much, much more!

Thank you for your support of our students, teachers and school!

Parents: Unstructured time, unoccupied homes due to family travel, empty cottages and college students home for the recess all increase the likelihood of underage drinking events during school breaks. Please set up systems to closely monitor your home if you are away and string accountability for your child if they are out with friends. Your vigilance helps our city and helps our children stay safe while they are still developing! There is a chance your child may begrudge you in the short term for this good parenting, but they will definitely respect and love you more in the long-term when they understand the world better.

As noted at the bottom of every Hilltop Notes: Children are endangered by underage house parties and underage drinking. Concerned adults, teachers, students and friends can call 24 hours a day in Erie County to report planned underage drinking parties; underage drinking parties in progress or other activities that may be harmful to the health, safety and welfare of young people. The tip line (1-800-851-1932) is ANONYMOUS, CONFIDENTIAL and free. Erie County now has a “Social Host Law” that holds adults accountable for allowing minors to drink.

For official school closings, including weather related events, please remember to tune to WBEN NewsRadio 930 AM, the official station for school closings.
