All NHS members opted to help struggling students during their free-time before and after school in the CHS library. Students who needed any extra aid in their core classes such as science, English or math, had the opportunity to sign up for a short session to help conquer any issues they had.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to have the chance to help struggling students improve their grades and help them to better succeed in school,” said Ryan Oatman, a senior NHS member.
The Homework Heroes plan to continue helping any struggling student throughout the rest of the school year as long as students need some tutoring help.
As NHS works to help students within the high school and across the school district, the other students within CHS are working on their Spartan spirit. The school hosted its annual Buddy Day assembly on Feb. 7. Each participant, including staff members and students, is auctioned off in a traditional auction style and the highest bidder wins the ability to dress up his or her “buddy” on Feb. 13. Bidding for each person or group starts at $5, and the proceeds of the event will go to the sophomore class.
To help boost Spartan spirit even more, the CHS administration gave the students the opportunity to show off their artistic side. Classes were given the challenge to have the best decorated door in the school, and the office administration will be the judges of the contest. Doors will be judged based on effort, creativity, and how much the door is related to the “Spartan Spirit” theme. Some doors were decorated with a drawing of Leonidas the Spartan himself or with creative quotes that will rouse their school pride. The winning class will receive a doughnut party in recognition of their creation. The contest ended Feb. 6, and the winners will be announced this week.
