Attention Seniors: The 17th Annual Pasco School District Enterprise Program will be held November 28th through December 2, 2016. This is the full week after Thanksgiving. Enterprise is a partnership with local businesses, Pasco School District and Washington Business Week. This program provides experience with the business world from industry experts who share business principles and knowledge. Students are formed into small companies where they create a new product and operate a business using a computer business simulation. Each student company is partnered with a Tri-City business professional or community member.
Seniors: Some important reminders about Enterprise week, which begins on the Monday after we return from Thanksgiving Break.
The policy is that all Seniors take the bus to Enterprise. Seniors are not allowed to drive themselves.
Buses will begin leaving CHS beginning at 7:25 and will run until 7:40. Please arrive to the flagpole and you will be assisted with finding the correct buses.
Also, look for posters in the hallways on Tuesday with information about which company students are assigned to.

Students, if you are looking for some extra time to get those assignments done, Saturday school has started. Classes to work on include English, Math, Science, History and P.E. Busses are available for those who need transportation to and from school. The dates for this semester are December 3rd, 10th, 17th, January 7th and 14th. If you have any questions regarding Saturday school please go to your wing office. If you need to be picked up at either the Kahlotus Highway or Edwin Markham stops, there are some special instructions for that: Kahlotus Highway (Martindale Rd @ Moore Rd) stop – student needs to tell their Wing Administrator or SAS they need to be picked up by the Friday before. The bus does not make that stop unless transportation is notified by Friday because of how far away it is. The Wing Administrator or SAS will then notify Ms. Laurine Carey in the B Wing office to make the call to Transportation. Edwin Markham stop – the student needs to tell Omar Farias (SAS), Office 1203 asap.
