Principal's Weekly Update

Hello Clarksburg High School Families!

Week of  September 17-21,  2018

Good morning Clarksburg High School families!

As a reminder, we continue to have high expectations academically as well as behaviorally. Therefore when it comes to the school dress policy we publish a school Dress Code and communicate these expectations to students. You may find our Dress Code Policy on our school website under the Student tab. Thank you to our parents and guardians for reviewing these expectations with your children.

Monday, September 17th we welcome Mr. Chris Gardner distinguished author, film producer, and entrepreneur whose personal story was a box office smash hit movie in The Pursuit of Happyness.

The Booster Club will hold its monthly meeting on Monday night beginning at 7 pm in the Media Center. The Booster Club works to support our terrific athletic program. Please come out and support our parent group.

Tuesday, September 18 we invite all staff, students, parents and guardians to our first PTSA meeting of the year. The guest speaker at the meeting will be Ms. Lindsay Cao, our talented lead Resource Counselor at CHS. We hope to see you at 6:30 pm in the school Media Center.

New students enrolled in the APPS program are asked to attend a meeting on Tuesday at 11:00 in the auditorium.

This Wednesday school will be closed for students and teachers in celebration of Yom Kippur. School will resume on Thursday.

This Friday we will hold the postponed kick off the new academic and sports season with a Pep Rally.

Our famous Blue Brigade T-shirts will be on sale this Tuesday, Thursday and Friday in our main Commons area in preparation for the Friday night home football game. T-shirt’s are $5 each while supplies last.

The Boys and Girls Club and Montgomery College have teamed up to offer an After School Program for students held at MC Germantown. Transportation is provided. See our website for details.

The Homework Club is back again this year. The Homework Club will meet every Tuesday and Thursday after school until 4:15 in room 224. Our first session will be this Tuesday, September 18th. There will be student tutors from the various national honor societies present to assist students that need academic help. Please encourage your students to attend.
  
There are student groups heading to Costa Rica during Spring Break and Spain and Portugal next summer. Students and parents interested in learning more should contact Ms. Hoponick for Costa Rica or Ms. Zeppos for Spain and Portugal and attend an interest meeting on Tuesday in room 1011 at 7 pm.

On Wednesday, October 10th, at 7:45 a.m., Clarksburg High School will administer the College Board’s PSAT for students in grades 9, 10, and 11. The PSAT serves as an excellent way for students to preview and practice for the SAT. Students in the 9th grade will take the PSAT 8/9 specifically designed for students in grade 9, exposing them to grade appropriate material in Math and English. You may find detailed information on our website and you will continue to see information in your email mailbox about this opportunity.

Homecoming 2018 is quickly approaching. Students will receive information about the Homecoming Dance this Monday in 1st period.

This week Fall athletic events will continue. You may find dates and times of all games on our website. Please spread the word and come out to support our teams.

That’s all for now! It will be a busy week.
Have a great Sunday.
