Every15Minutes Program (Drunk Driving Awareness) for Juniors and Seniors on March 15 and 16:  

Last year, PTO and the Coronado Police Department helped us sponsor an assembly and simulation experience on drunk and distracted driving for our senior class.  This year, members of Coronado Police Department and CHS ASB, with a grant from the California Highway Patrol, are coordinating an immersive two-part drunk driving prevention experience for our 11th and 12th graders.  On Thursday, juniors and seniors will observe a simulated crash site with participation of CHS students in the enactment of an alcohol-related automobile accident.  On Friday, students will attend an assembly including speakers whose family members have been affected by drunk driving.  You may learn more about the program here:

CHS last hosted the program in 2005, and the Eagle & Journal published an article about it:

Sophomore and Freshman Activities:

On Monday March 12, our sophomores will attend an annual field trip to the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.   We are grateful to the Coronado Schools Foundation and the Coronado Chabad, generous supporters of our 10th graders’ experience.  On Thursday, March 15, our freshmen and sophomores will attend an assembly featuring a gentleman who survived the Holocaust.  We are grateful and excited about this unique opportunity.
