Extracurricular Activities

Getting involved in extracurricular activities is a good way for students to meet new people, develop new skills, make a contribution and have some fun.
 
You can display your talents, develop your leadership and organizational abilities, learn to make decisions and manage your time, and enhance your people skills - all traits that will help you in high school and beyond.

California Healthy Kids Survey

Dear Parent or Guardian:

During the month of October, 2017, all students in grades 7, 9 and 11, and all students enrolled in CUSD Alternative Education schools, will be asked to be a part of our school’s California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) sponsored by the California Department of Education.

The CHKS is a very important survey that helps promote better health and well-being among our youth, improve the school learning environment and combat problems such as drug abuse and violence. CHKS is conducted statewide every 2 years.

Your child will be bringing home a “Passive Parent Consent Form” at least one week prior to the survey administration.  Your child does not have to take the survey. If you do not want your child to complete the survey, you must notify your school and/or return the “Parent Permission Form” your child brings home, indicating that you do not give permission for them to participate.

 For more information about the survey, including viewing a copy, please go to : http://chks.wested.org/.  You may also contact Ann Brodsky, Tobacco Use Prevention Education Coordinator, 891-3050, x112, abrodsky@chicousd.org.
