Islander Family Email - 10-5-16



Dear Islander Families,


A reminder that we have NO SCHOOL on Monday.  Enjoy a long weekend with your families!


Federal Survey Cards:

At this time each year we send home the attached “FEDERAL SURVEY CARD” and ask you to please complete the card and return it to us BY TOMORROW, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2016.


We are required to have cards for all students, regardless of parents’ occupation.

We do this as part of the procedures which are prescribed by the Federal Government in order to collect certain funds for the school district.  We need the information in order to qualify for these funds, which account for a substantial portion of our district budget.


Homecoming Festivities:

This is the LAST WEEK to purchase tickets for our dance!  For information about the dance, including permission slip, cost, and deadlines, please see our website at:


Next week is Homecoming Spirit Week, culminating in our pep rally, parade, and home football game and King and Queen crowning on Friday, and the dance on Saturday.  

Dress days for the week are:

Tuesday:  Tacky Tourist Day

Wednesday:  USA Day (red, white, and blue)

Thursday:  Pajama Day

Friday:  Islander Day/Class Tee-Shirt Day


Homecoming Float building:  In preparation for the Homecoming Parade after school on October 14, each of our classes is building a float (hosted at a family’s home).  Float building is scheduled through October 13, with specific times determined by the class (encourage your student to access detailed info via his/her class Facebook page or by emailing class advisor--9th grade,; 10th grade,; 11th grade,; 12th grade,  Float building is meant to promote class unity and healthy competition, and not to interfere with priorities of homework, academic or athletic commitments/success, and good citizenship. Students of a particular class who interfere with the building of another class’s float or who threaten the safety of classmates or Coronado citizens face school consequences and the potential of their class float being disqualified.  


PSAT Test at CHS:  CHS is proud to offer the PSAT test for ALL 9th, 10th, and 11th graders on October 19 (Seniors will arrive at 9AM on Wednesday and have breakfast and a class movie followed by college and career workshops during test time).  The PSAT serves as a practice test for the SAT, an indicator of which AP courses your student should consider, and an identifier of students for the National Merit Scholarship program.  For more information see the College Board’s website:
