MARCH 2020

On Thursday evening, March 26, Mr. Ben Tracy, President & Co-Founder, of Renegade Media Strategies will speak to CBHS parents about Digital Awareness. He will address topics including bullying, pornography, limiting screen time and implementing a “digital bedtime.” Mr. Tracy will share his expertise with students the following day during a morning assembly. On April 2 & 3 CBHS will help every student develop a Mental Health Wellness Plan based on the information presented to parents and faculty by our fall speaker, Grace McLaren of First Responder Coaching. Information will be emailed to parents to help you reinforce the concept of mental wellness with your son.

Please ask your son about the Read & Write software now available to all CBHS students. After logging in to the CBHS website, click on the purple puzzle piece icon to access software that works on library articles, websites, and online textbooks with tools designed for reading, writing, studying, and research support.
