We are still recruiting for girls' soccer, boys' volleyball and girls' softball. Join a team, make new friends, get in shape and learn skills that will help you become a leader!
Summer Girls' Basketball league sign-up has just begun. Also, boys' football for the Fall is recruiting. If you are interested in either please see Ms. Rocque ASAP.
Our very own principal, Mr. Borras, has contributed a chapter to a book on community engagement. The book is entitled, "Creating Engagement between Schools and their Communities" and you can purchase it from the publisher's site. Dr. Azcoitia, our founding principal, contributed as well.
The Jardincito, located at 23rd and Whipple, is a place where young children can play in and explore nature right in their own neighborhood. Rather than the traditional swings and slides, there are features borrowed from the natural world: an earthen mound, balancing logs, a herd of boulders, a pebble pool, a play deck, and play huts. CLHS was instrumental in the creation of this space and continues to be involved with the operation of the garden. Students from Spry Elementary, particularly Pre-K students, regularly use this space.
Congratulations to Lesly Ramirez, Marbella Villeda, Alejandra Vallejo, and Irving Trujillo, who began their collegiate journey at National Louis University. They are enrolled in a Criminal Justice course and will study alongside Criminal Justice majors. They were met by Esmeralda 'Essie' Dominguez from Advising, Mark Mehl from our Pathways Group and Richard A. Schak, the chair of the Criminal Justice program, for a quick orientation to the school and the program. Lesly, Marbella, Alejandra, and Irving will be receiving college credit towards their degree in a class taught by Dr. Cynthia Schumann, who was recently featured in an on-line magazine story. The link to that story is listed below.
