Student Movement Guidance
 
Great work on keeping the hallways clear and the building quiet last week. This represents the daily expectation for our building. We will institute a modified pass policy this week. No more than one student can leave the classroom at a time. Hallsweeps will continue with students captured in the hall sweep spending the period in ISS. Repeat offenders will receive swift and decisive disciplinary actions. As we close the 2nd quarter, let’s focus on keeping teaching and learning the priority.
 
SAT Day is coming!!!!
 
All students classified as 11th graders will be taking the SAT on Wednesday, March 2nd. It will be done during the school day, is free of charge and only 11th grade students can take the exam. More information is forthcoming.
 
A prominent figure in Black History 
Solomon Northup produced by Media Arts 2 student Ayeme (Kenny) Owona is the focus of our prominent person in black history. Please see the video linked to his name for a short video produced by one of our Jaguars.
CPSTS sponsors a FREE Driving School!
 
CPSTS is sponsoring a free Driver’s Educational Scholarship Program for Prince George’s County students. Twenty-eight CHF students were awarded the scholarship in the last application cycle!

Please see the information linked here.  The program will help students meet the hiring standards of many private and public job opportunities.

Wright Talk

Ted Wright is offering his new series of Leadership Development sessions. Please see this linked flyer for more information.

Social Media misuse

Please be advised that commentary associated with the use of weapons at school, even in jest, requires that the Department of Homeland Security be involved. Don’t make a mistake posting something that you find “entertaining” that references serious incidents, such as school shootings. There will be consequences including, possibly, federal charges.

Time to start thinking about AP!!
