Course Selection: Course Selection for the 2018/2019 school year is under way.  Students are asked to input their requests for high school courses into Skyward and return their course selection cards by Monday, February 19.


Textbook Update:  Any textbooks not yet provided are on order with the SJC Bookstore and students will be notified of their availability via Naviance; therefore, all students should ensure they have added a working email address to their Naviance account.  If your professor is requesting a text other than what you were provided, you should speak to Ms. Hubenak as soon as possible as Clear Horizons will not purchase textbooks after February 16th.


Copy Room Paper:  Students must supply their own paper to the printer room. Paper may be purchased for $.01 per sheet (a penny per page) at the front desk in the main office.


Booster Club:  There is still time to join the Booster Club!!  Just go to http://chechs.ccisd.net/booster_club/booster_club and select the membership form.  Complete and return the form to the office with the membership dues and you are in!  Students ages 16 and older are also able to join the Booster Club!  Each family membership and each individual student membership gives the student a chance at the Booster Club Scholarship at the end of his or her senior year!!


Booster Club Officers:  We thank you all for your support and welcome our new officers!

President: Ms. Shinder

Vice President: Mr. Delacruz

Treasurer: Ms. Smith

We are still in need of a secretary.  Please let us know if you are interested in helping with this important position on the executive committee.


8th Grade Student/Parent Information Night:  Horizons will be conducting the final 8th Grade Student/Parent Information Night Tuesday, February 13, at Clear Horizons ECHS (SJC South Bldg 11).


On the Road for a Reason:  It’s time for the annual On the Road for a Reason Fun Run/Walk and Car Show benefitting the Bay Area Alliance for Youth and Families!  The Fun Run/Walk will take place Saturday, March 3, at Clear View High School, beginning at 8:00 a.m.  This is the only Houston-area run that goes over the NASA Bypass!  The Car Show will take place Sunday, March 4, at CCISD Challenger Columbia Stadium from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.  For more information go to http://www.ontheroadforareason.net/


Do You Write?:  Journalism Club is looking for short stories, poems, essays, and memoirs to publish in their newsletter. If you have written something this year you would like to submit for consideration, please email a typed copy to horizons.journalism@gmail.com


Clear Horizons Shirts:  We still have Clear Horizons Coyote shirts available for purchase in the front office.  Short sleeve and women’s V-neck shirts are $15, long sleeve shirts are $20.  Buy yours today while supplies last!


Yearbooks:  Yearbooks are on sale now!  Order online at balfour.com or pay cash/check PAYABLE to CHECHS to Mrs. Hampton in 9.268.  Cost is $35 from January 1 – April 30.  From May 1st until books sell out, books cost $40.  Order yours today!


Advisory: Every day students will report to Advisory class by 8:00 AM.  Advisory is a critical class for students each day as we disseminate crucial information and touch base with every student.  Seniors meet in the BQR and all other students will meet in the classroom stated on their schedules.  Students will see their names and Advisory locations posted in the main hallways on the first day of school.


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

March 29 – 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 4:45 PM.  The late bus will be in front of our school by 4:45 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 3:30p.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.


Driving your own vehicle to school?  All students who drive and park on campus must register with SJC for a parking permit.  Beginning this school year, all students who drive to school must also register their vehicles with the Clear Horizons office.  Please stop by the office to get a copy of the Clear Horizons Parking Regulations and a Clear Horizons Vehicle Registration Form.
