CHF Culture day goes viral!
This event, though short and sweet, paved a way for “the Mecca” to go viral on different social media platforms. In the span of three days, the videos of the ASA team performance and showcase of the widespread cultures at Charles Herbert Flowers High School have gotten over 1.5 million views and thousands of comments in admiration on ‘TikTok’. Once again, thank you for this opportunity as “the Mecca” is currently trending for excellence.

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.
