American Mathematics Competition:  American Mathematics Contest (AMC 10/ AMC 12) is TUESDAY, February 7, in room 9.116.  Please be seated in the room by 3:30.  Good luck to all participants.


Talent Show:  Talent Show tickets are on sale in the BQR at lunch for $5.  At the door, tickets are $7.  Talent Show is Friday, February 10, at 7:00 p.m. in the Proscenium.


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:


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!!


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/.


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! 


Advisory: Advisory class begins at 8:00 AM Monday through Friday.  Students who arrive after 8:00 AM MUST report to the office to check into school, regardless of their arrival time throughout the day.  The only time a student may report directly to class is to advisory class at 8:00 AM. 


Service Learning:  Service learning hours should be submitted to a basket in the office where students can turn in hours at any point in the year.  To help students stay organized with Service Learing Hours, we have suggested due dates for the summer and fall semester:


The absolute final due date for all Service Learning hours to be submitted is:

March 31 – All Service Learning Hours (at least 20 hours) must be turned in by this date.


As service learning is a key aspect of our mission at Clear Horizons, students who do not meet the 20 hour requirement will meet with Clear Horizons administration to explain the deficit.  Students who refuse to meet the requirement will be returned to their zoned campus.


Dress Code:  Clear Horizons follows the CCISD dress code.  The student dress code can be found on our website under the “For Parents” tab or the “For Students” tab.  http://chechs.ccisd.net/UserFiles/Servers/Server_655841/File/Dress%20Code%202016%202017.pdf


Late Bus:  Clear Horizons provides a late bus that runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 PM.  The Late Bus began running this Tuesday, August 31.  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.
