Congratulations to all the students who represented City Hill at the Jr. NVL Leadership Conference Friday at Tyrrell Middle School in Wolcott. The athletes participated in many activities learning team- building techniques and cooperative group strategies. Go Cyclones!






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, if you have not already done so, please return your orange emergency cards to the nurse as soon as possible.  All of those who did not hand a card in were given another one last week.  If you are ill, the nurse uses the information on these cards to notify someone to come and pick you up!



Shout out to the lunch waves that have earned the privilege to head outside after lunch for a short recess. In order to receive the privilege students must maintain an appropriate volume, follow faculty directions, and show respect to teachers when they provide redirection.  We hope this friendly reminder will prompt all lunch waves to demonstrate ROCKS expectations so that they can enjoy the beautiful outdoor weather.




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.
