Reminders and Announcements
  • Technology Summer Announcement: Students may keep their Chromebooks over the summer; however, students also have the option to drop off the Chromebook with the Technology Department for safekeeping. Seniors may keep their devices as they now own the device after graduation. If a senior does not want to keep his/her device, he/she may donate the device back to the school.

    If a student is planning on storing the Chromebook over the summer at Catholic High School, a table will be set up at the entrance of the library during exams. Students may drop off their Chromebook after his/her final exam and fill out the necessary form.

    If a student wishes to keep the Chromebook over the summer, please follow all the instructions linked here

  • CHS Final Exams: CHS will host final exams from May 24 - May 31. Please see the document linked here for the full schedule and more information on exam policies and protocols.

  • En Christe Hours: Catholic High School follows Christ’s call in Matthew 25 to serve the poorest of poor in our community. As Christians, we have an opportunity to bring the love of Christ to the suffering members of our community by giving of our time and talents.

En Christe hours for the 2024-2025 school year can be logged on Mobile Serve starting on May 1, 2024.

    • NEW THIS YEAR: Catholic High School will no longer be selling used English novels in the CHS bookstore. Consigned textbooks will be available for sale in mid-June after the consignment period. You are not required to purchase your summer reading from MBS, however, if you choose to locate the book on Amazon or another site, please search by ISBN rather than title for the most accurate version.
       
    • Sell/Consign your books with BAG IT / WAG IT: Starting May 23 after the 2nd exam, students can come to the library and BAG or WAG their books. If you want to sell your books to MBS Direct, go to MBS’ online bookstore, click on SELL YOUR BOOKS and follow the directions to complete the sale. Print the form listing the books you are selling and bring them and the form to the library during BAG It / WAG It. If you would rather consign your books to the CHS bookstore and we are using the book(s) next year, you can WAG your book(s) to the CHS Bookstore. Bring it to the library during designated times, we will Wrap your book(s) and you will be on your way–Wrap and Go! For additional information, please click here.
