Calhoun City Schools Says Thank You!



Thank you for all of your help!
Calhoun High School will host an AP Parent Night for parents and students interested in learning more about the Advanced Placement program. The meeting will be held on Monday, August 29th at 6:00pm in the CHS Cafeteria. The meeting will consist of a general information session and then an opportunity to visit with your child's AP teachers to ask specific questions about the courses they are taking this year. 



Calhoun Middle School's Campus Beautification class will be collecting Box Tops for Education to earn money for campus projects this year. Please help us by sending in the box tops from household goods/items from General Mills with the box top symbol. Students will turn the boxtops into their homeroom teacher. The class will be collecting the boxtops throughout the year.
