Late Arrival Day: Wednesday, February 1, is a CCISD High School Late Arrival Day.  There will be no morning neighborhood buses available due to CCISD High School Late Arrival. Clear Horizons buses will still run from the 5 zoned high schools (a shuttle does not run from Clear View High School on Late Arrival Days).  Clear Horizons does not participate in Late Arrival Days, therefore all Clear Horizons students are required to attend all classes on that day.

 

On the Road for a Reason:  The Bay Area Alliance is partnering with Clear View High School to host the On the Road for a reason Car Show and 5K Run/Walk benefitting the Bay Area Alliance for Youth and Families.  The Car Show will take place Friday, March 3, from 6 – 9 PM at Challenger Columbia Stadium and the Fun Run/Walk will take place Saturday, March 4, beginning at 8:00 AM at Clear View High School.  Early registration ends February 14!  For more information go to http://www.ontheroadforareason.net/.

 

Book Suggestions:  Have you recently read a great book and would recommend it to others?  Stop by the front desk in the office and get a snowflake to place on our Book Recommendation wall!!  Maybe you’ll find your next great read listed when you place your snowflake!

 

Math Club/Math Contest: Students interested in competing at the free UH Math Contest on Saturday January 28, MUST pick up and complete a permission slip signed by their parents.  Completed permission slips are due back to Mrs. Hampton  NO LATER THAN Wednesday January 25 by 3:20pm.

 

 

8th Grade Student/Parent Information Nights:  It’s that time of year!  The time when we pack up our information and tour the district telling 8th grade students and their families about our amazing school!  Clear Horizons will be conducting 8th Grade Student/Parent Information Nights on the following dates:

 

Tuesday, January 24 – Brookside Intermediate School

Thursday, February 9 – Clear Creek Intermediate School

Thursday, February 16 – Clear Horizons ECHS (SJC South Bldg 11)

 

All sessions will begin at 6:00 PM.  Come out and speak with administrators, counselors, and current Clear Horizons students to find out about our amazing school!!

 

Amazon Smile!  The Clear Horizons Booster Club is now on Amazon Smile!  Simply follow this link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/26-3510958 and you will be donating to the Clear Horizons Booster Club!!  The link looks like a generic CCISD identification, but it is really for the Clear Horizons Boosters!

 

Yearbook:  Yearbooks are currently for sale for $35 on balfour.com.   You may also pay cash or check, payable to CHECHS, to Mrs. Hampton in Room 9.266.

 

NHS Table Tutors: Would you like to have a free tutor who has successfully navigated the Horizons workload? Come to the BQR on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to get immediate help, schedule an after school tutoring session (held in a high school teacher's classroom), or to find out more about secrets of success at Horizons. These friendly experienced tutors will be stationed at a table near check-in between 1:15 -1:45 pm. What a great resource - but only if you use it! 

 

Late Bus:  Clear Horizons provides a late bus that runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 PM.  The late bus will be in front of our school by 5:00 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday and typically departs within 10 minutes. The late bus will drop off in two locations: The East side of 45 at Clear Creek High School and on the West side of 45 at Brookside Intermediate. Students who are planning on riding the late bus must request a pass from the office. The request must be made for official business only (ie tutorials, a rehearsal, detention, etc.). A bus pass must be picked up before 1:00 p.m. on the day you want to ride (Tuesday or Thursday). No bus passes will be issued after lunch.  If you do not have a pass you will not be allowed to ride the bus.  If no one has picked up a late bus pass, the bus will be cancelled. Students, make sure that your parent/guardian knows that you are staying late and catching the late bus. The front office closes at 4:00 p.m.  When signing up for pass students must include the following:

1) Purpose – Why are you staying late?

2) Location from 3:30 – 5:00 – Where will you be?

3) Parent Permission – Did you let your parent know you were staying late?

The reason we must have this information is so that we can find you in case of an emergency.
