Weekly Newsletter: September 30 - October 4, 2019

As we approach the close of the first academic quarter, it is nice to see so many of our students not only supporting each other (and especially our 9th graders) with the academic adjustment to high school, but also the social adjustment. This week, we were excited to see students step up to lead in many ways!

#NoMoreDrama Campaign

NoMoreDrama Wall No transition to a new school is easy and that's particularly true for new high school students. And while the academic transition to CIHS' IB Program is significant enough, new ninth grade students also face typical social transitions.

This past week, our 9th grade students stepped up to support each other with these social transitions with personal commitments to support each other--through the hashtag #NoMoreDrama. We encourage ninth grade parents to ask your children about the commitments they are making and we also welcome parents to support our students at home by being cognizant about how our young people use social media. If you want to support in other ways, please contact our MYP Coordinator, Maria Vazquez-Listenbee.
