Today’s big shout out goes to the Marching Pride! Congratulations to the Marching Pride for earning another Grand Championship this weekend at the "SOTCI" Marching Competition at Harris County High School. The Pride once again earned all Superior Ratings in all captains, in addition to Class and Overall Championships in Drum Major, Front Ensemble, and Percussion. The evening ended with the Pride being named the Most Entertaining Band of the Competition and the Overall Grand Champions with the final score of 95.67.  This is their 2nd Championship of the year and the 53rd Championship overall for the Marching Pride! Go Pride Go!

JROTC is hosting a Spirit Night at Heavenly Bowls on October 21 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Come enjoy a wonderful dinner and support our Cadets!


This week we will celebrate Bullying Prevention week at CHS. Activities will be held during each lunch period, so please check it out and participate! We will also be conducting a raffle and giving away t-shirts. This year’s theme is “CHS Together”. CHS celebrates Bullying Prevention to promote empathy, inclusion and acceptance of others. We work to create positive, engaging and uplifting interactions between students. Each day we will share a quote in support of Bullying Prevention. Today’s quote is from William James, “Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
