School Pictures:  The photos are in!!  To view your photos, you must go to the photographer’s website:  www.rhondafloyd.com and follow the directions on the flyer in a content block on the home page of It’s Learning.  The Pictures will only be available for viewing and ordering October 2 – October 16.  Please order your photos before MONDAY, October 16.

 

School Picture Retakes:  School picture retakes will be Wednesday, October 18.  The photographer will be in the side BQR from 1:00p.m. – 2:00 p.m.  All students who need a retake must come during this time. 

 

BPA Pet Food Drive: BPA is sponsoring a pet food drive October 16-20.  Boxes will be placed in advisory classes to collect pet food for aniMeals on Wheels, an organization who provides food for senior citizens' pets.  The advisory who collects the largest amount of food by percentage will receive an ice cream party sponsored by Business Professionals of America.  Please help with this worthwhile cause!

 

Late Arrival Day: Wednesday, October 25, 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.

 

Junior Service Learning Trip:  The Junior Class will be taking a service learning trip to Galveston State Park Friday, October 27.  Students should have the following for the trip:  Clear Horizons t-shirt, close-toed shoes, hats or hair securing devices, sunscreen, and a change of clothing in case you get wet, dress for the weather (could be chilly – wear layers) NO short shorts.  We will be outdoors the entire time so you may want to bring plenty of water and a snack.

Service Learning Recognition:  Attention all Coyotes:  If you have participated in service learning or community service in the past year, you are eligible to apply for the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards.  Students interested in applying for this prestigious award can pick up a flyer from Ms. Kahlich in 9.107. Deadline for the online application is November 7, 2017.  An honoree and two runners-up will be chosen based on initiative, effort, impact, and personal growth. The honoree becomes eligible for a $1,000 state award, $5,000 national award and free trip to Washington D. C.   Please consider applying!!!!!  

 

Advisory: Monday and 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.
