High School tours

Our 8th grade students will take a tour of the Newton High School on Jan. 17 and 18. Students will depart from Chisholm Middle School at 8:15, tour the high school, eat lunch, and then return to CMS at about 12:50.


8th grade black pod students will attend the tour on Wednesday, January 17 and 8th grade gold pod students will attend the tour on Thursday, January 18. 


Students will register for their high school classes on Jan. 30 and 31 during their Career and Life planning class. The NHS counselors will assist them with enrollment. 


This is such an exciting time for our students. Students will be bringing home enrollment forms shortly after the NHS tours. Please sit down and discuss class choices and options with your student. 


Please let Mrs. Reed at CMS know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the NHS tours or enrollment.
