Coronado High School Homecoming Week!!

Dear Islander Families,


October is Character Counts month, and at CHS it coincides with our celebration of community, history, and tradition in Homecoming Week.  This Friday’s pep rally, parade, football game and crowning of King and Queen will culminate a week of spirit and opportunities for collaboration and team building including class float construction and competition, dress days, and lunch-time contests meant to build excitement and a sense of belonging.  The CHS administration and class advisors kicked off Homecoming Week with a special broadcast surprise for students: (it’s a spoof of a Jimmy Fallon skit for Saugerties High). 

This year our ASB has encouraged increased participation in student government through monthly House of Representatives meetings.  Representatives from all 5th period classrooms convene to debrief recent activities and brainstorm best practices for future ones.  Because of these conversations and peer input, ASB has committed to establishing more inclusive and gender-neutral traditions around the nominations, selections/elections, and crowning of our King and Queen.  Students may nominate themselves and others for King and Queen through open nominations, and with more than 80 boys and 90 girls nominated originally, a majority of the senior class was in the running for Homecoming Court.  This year both princes and princesses will participate in a form of performance in the pep rally, both princes and princess will ride in the parade, and both king and queen will be elected through votes and crowned at this Friday’s game versus San Diego High School.

Mid-term Progress Reports:  The end of the mid-term grading period is this Friday, and you will be able to access midterm progress report grades online on Synergy on November 5.  Teachers will follow with direct communications through phone calls, emails, or mailed deficiency notices if your child is failing or in danger of failing any classes at the end of November.  Please remember that Haiku, our online learning management system, is where teachers update grades and assignment scores.  And as always, if your child or you is confused about grades, grading, or has questions about progress, please contact the appropriate teacher. 


Thank YOU:
* To the Coronado Schools Foundation and CHS families for supporting our schools through donations and attendance at this year’s Gala held over the weekend!  Your contributions enrich learning inside the classrooms and beyond!
*To our CHS PTO for teacher and department funds to offset spending from teachers’ own pockets for school supplies.  Every little bit counts!  Our CHS PTO also hosts monthly teacher appreciation meals and treats, which bring us together in the staff lounge for food and collegiality.
*To the CHS Islander community for supporting security guard and beloved Islander Forrest Perkins and his family through the loss of his son, who attended CHS.  Cards may be dropped off at our front office any time.  Services will be on November 2 at California Burials on Highland Avenue, 10 AM viewing and 12 PM services. 


We appreciate our community and all your support of student learning and co-curricular activities!  Let’s have an amazing Islander Homecoming week!!


Your CHS Islander Administration
