SBAC Tip for Thursday 

Intelligence is not fixed. Research shows us we can “grow” our intelligence. Students with a “growth mindset” see math as something to work at. When it gets difficult, which it will, they persevere. They believe that the brain is like a muscle, the harder one works, the stronger it gets.  Students, who engage in a healthy struggle actually “grow” will find success on the SBAC test and more importantly in life.




This is a safety message to all of our students to remind them that activities such as the Tide Pod, Eraser or any other challenge that may be harmful to you or someone else is taken seriously here at City Hill.  These challenges go against our ROCKS expectations when they require students to engage in unsafe activities or be unkind to others. Several students have stepped up to tell an adult about students participating in these and assisted us in making sure their classmates were safe. Great job!




Peer Partnership is running a bottle/can drive until April. Collection bins are in several 7th and 8th grade homerooms, staff rooms, and in the cafeteria. Please deposit only redeemable containers - which includes water bottles and soda cans.

Non-redeemable items are bottles without labels, milk cartons, sports drinks or juice containers, and iced tea products.

Proceeds will go to an end of the year field trip for the Peer Partnership Project.




Students are reminded that no headphones (either earbuds or Beat style around the neck) are to be out and visible during the day unless they are actively being used for an assignment in class. Also outerwear such as jackets, hoods, gloves, and hats are not permitted during the school day. Teachers please do a sweep in your homeroom right now and have any students with headphones, hoods, jackets, hats or gloves on remove them at this time.


It has come to the attention of the administration that students are using cell phones in the cafeteria. The expectation for students is that cell phones are off and away. This policy is also enforced in the cafeteria.  We hope we do not have to confiscate phones.  



 Let’s earn those stars.



We are raffling off a grey CHMS sweatshirt and this garnet Naugy sweatshirt.  Five stars equals 1 raffle ticket. We are also raffling off gift cards.






At the beginning of the year, we delivered lessons outlining the expectations for our CHMS Rocks in various settings.  One of the areas we reviewed was appropriate hallway behavior. The expectations is that students will walk to the right side of the hallway and keep hands and feet to themselves.  Teachers, we are asking that you reinforce appropriate hallway behavior with stars this morning and throughout the day.

 Additionally, cell phones are powered off and away, ear buds are out of sight, and hoods and hats are off.   


Students who stay for a sporting practice or event must have a ride for the end of practice. Students who wish to stay for a sporting event should present their coach or advisor with a note from their parent indicating parental permission was granted.
