Welcome to Canyon Lake High School

Parents and Students, 

A few announcements for some upcoming events and programs at CLHS: 
Remote Learners:  Starting next week, we will begin our Hawk Academy every Wednesday from 4:30-6:30pm in the Library.  This will be for any Remote Student who needs to make up a test for any teacher.  Your teacher will need to be notified so that your test is available; paper copies of test only will be given.  Th health screener must be completed prior to coming into building.  If you have any questions, contact Assistant Principal, Chad Bentley at 830-885-1700. 
 
 
Next week is Homecoming 2020 Week and we want everyone to get into the school spirit.  Monday is a student holiday so there will be no school.  Tuesday is Wild Wild West - dress western; Wednesday is Twin Day, grab your bestie and dress alike; Thursday is Duck Dynasty Day - dress in your finest camo; and finally, Friday is Green and Gold Day!!  Let's support the Hawks to another HCO victory!!  Also next week, we will be hosting our annual Homecoming Parade and Meet the Hawks.  The parade will start at 6:30pm with Meet the Hawks to follow in the stadium.  The event is free but you must have a ticket to get into the stadium through Brushfire; tickets available starting Monday and a link will be sent out.  Limited seating, masks required and social distancing in the stadium.  
Next Wednesday, Oct. 14th, is PSAT day for all sophomores and juniors.  There will be an alternative schedule for these classes; Junior and Sophomore remote learner classes will be asynchronous on Wednesday and remote students who are not testing will need to ensure and check in for their attendance.  Remote Learners who are testing will need to be on campus at 9:30 to begin their test.

Smart Business

Many of the vocational classes offered today at high schools are not your typical electives. Comal ISD's Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs, like the Business, Marketing and Finance program at Smithson Valley and other high schools, are part of a multi-faceted, modern curriculum that provides students with the technical knowledge and real-world skills they need to get started in a current or emerging profession.
