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.
Mark your calendars! October 23rd is a new Student Holiday/Teacher Planning and Professional Development day that has been added to the calendar.
Finally, this Friday is the last day to change from Remote to On Campus. You can access the link here
Next Friday, October 16th is the end of the first nine weeks. Please make sure that your work is complete and all makeup work is finished. Hawk Academy is the perfect opportunity to make up any tests... We want to ensure that you have done everything you can to make the best grade possible. Have a great evening and as always, please let me know if you need anything. Mrs. Castilleja, CLHs Principal
The Exceptional Senior Award honors students who have consistently displayed high levels of character, leadership, integrity and diligence. The award is in its second year and is presented to seniors across Texas' 21st Congressional District.
For 20 years Comal ISD has honored the top graduating seniors from each of its high schools with a special academic recognition banquet. The 2021 honorees along with their chosen mentor teachers were honored once again with a banquet, but instead of one banquet, the district hosted four.
Being ranked in the top 5, 10 or 15 percent of the graduating class is not an easy feat. That's why Comal ISD students who earn this ranking are celebrated and honored. Here's a list of the 2021 honor students.
Four Comal ISD students from the Class of 2021 were National Merit Finalists this year, and one was a National Merit Scholarship Winner. This places these graduates among the top 1 percent of 1.5 million students.
Comal ISD is proud of its students who choose to serve in the United States military after graduation. The Class of 2021 continues this tradition to serve with students who are enlisting, entering military academies and attending college on ROTC scholarships with the intent to serve.
The Class of 2021 from Comal ISD walked the stage at five graduation ceremonies recently. Collectively, they earned more than $26.3 million in scholarships, 58 joined the United States military with three appointments to military academies and four were named National Merit Finalists including one National Merit Scholarship Winner.
This year's District Teachers of the Year share the same last name, but they are not related. They do, however, share the same philosophy when it comes to teaching - show up and focus on the relationships.
