The National Honor Society recently had the chance travel to New York City and expand their knowledge. Emily Wacker, the NHS adviser, organized the trip. The students had the opportunity to learn about a completely different lifestyle and take tours all over New York City. NBC Studios, Time Square, The Empire State Building and Central Park are only a few of the stops on the NHS trip. Inside the NBC Studios the students were able to tour the set of Saturday Night Live as well as Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Lizzy Lane, a senior and first-year member of NHS, even got to participate in a mock weather report with a green screen and teleprompter. NHS members also had the opportunity to see the 9/11 memorial and tour the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

The education keeps on going; numerous CHS students have taken up to three Advanced Placement tests this past week. Students in AP Calculus, AP Government, AP Spanish, AP English Literature and Composition, and AP English Language and Composition each took a test that consumed their entire mornings.
