A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

Seventh grade students are currently enjoying bowling during their PE classes (Jan. 20, 23, 24, 25, and 27).  Students will be bused to SCSU Atwood Center.

Next week is Snow Daze Week at CHS.  Each day is designated a different day for dress-up.  Monday is Tie-Dye Day.  The Snow Daze Dance is Jan. 28 in the North Gym. The dance will be a jungle theme.  Obviously dress code applies. 

Our Prom Committee will meet for the first time next week.  I know that students may already be shopping for prom attire.  Please keep this dress code in mind:

For young ladies:

  • Prom dresses should be modest and event/age appropriate
  • Dresses should not be low cut in front or back or too revealing
  • No cut-outs
  • No two piece dresses with midriff showing
  • No high cut revealing leg slits
  • If short, no more than 2 inches above the knee

For young men:

Formal attire: tux, suit, sportcoat, or shirt and tie, long pants


Informational meetings for Solar Sound Marching Band are coming up on January 23rd at Apollo High School (Band Room) or January 26th at Tech High School (Band Room).  Meetings begin at 7pm.  Parents and students are encouraged to attend one of these meetings to find out all the details of what it means to participate in a premier summer marching experience.  Summer marching band is open to all students grades 7-12.  No experience necessary. Students do NOT have to play an instrument to be in marching band!  In addition to the band proper and drum line, color guard supports the show theme by providing visual beauty with choreographed routines using colorful flags and costumes.  Honor guard members introduce the band by carrying the banner and US flag.  Come to a meeting to see what it's all about.  For more information, contact Roxanne Muehlbauer at 320-290-0927 or go to www.solarsoundmarchingband.org.
