CHS Basketball Fans - Two important clarifying points. Players will be given game passes to distribute as they see fit. There are no extra tickets, and none will be sold. You must have your pass to get in. There will be no spectators for Away fans at any Apollo Conference schools. Links will be provided prior to all non-conference contests. Here is a link to see the livestreaming sites for all of our conference schools (which includes Teutopolis for the 2020-2021 school year). https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AEecEFvNLN-6TKv_Cp2njzYgSoQrou8dKfIRBqSrlV4/edit For your reference, here is a link to the previously shared letter about winter sports. https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1099970/COVID_Game_Parent_Letter.pdf If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Zerrusen zerrusend@charleston.k12.il.us

Good morning, Please remember that completing the FAFSA is now a graduation requirement! All students planning to go on to college should complete FAFSA if they haven't already done so. If your student is not planning to attend college, they can complete the waiver which can be found on the guidance page on the CHS website or your student can stop by the guidance office for a copy. When completed it needs submitted to the guidance office to cover the graduation requirement. We will be checking very soon to see who still needs to meet this requirement! Also, many scholarships have been added to the guidance page and we will continue to add them as they come into our office. Please go check them out! Please contact your student's counselor with any questions. Thank you, Allison Meeker and Beth Nelson Allison Meeker Guidance Counselor Charleston High School P: (217) 639-5014

CHS Art Students were invited to rethink the classic elementary school idea of the hand turkey and to put a more creative and personal spin on the concept. It didn't even have to be a turkey! This assignment was voluntary for extra credit. These are the second four. Enjoy!

CHS is sponsoring a Blood Drive at Unique Suites Hotel from 1-6 on Monday, November 30. We already have 16 donors signed up online. The Red Cross is still doing the COVID antibody testing for free with each completed donation which is an added bonus. The plasma of donors with COVID antibodies has been very helpful in the treatment of those currently fighting the virus.

Due to recent mitigations put in place by IDPH and IHSA, all high school athletics are temporarily put on pause, effective today 11/20/20. There will be no open gyms, practices, conditioning, or competition during this time. The only exception would be if the activity takes place outdoors, with 10 or less participants who are socially distanced and wearing a face covering. IHSA will discuss the restart of the winter athletic season at their December board meeting.

Saturday was an incredible day of Trojan Athletics! At the Cross Country Regional Meet, our girls' team placed 2nd and advanced to Sectionals. The team was led by Megan Garrett with a 4th place overall finish and Grace Spoonhour with a 11th place finish! On the boys' side, Luca Carcasi qualified for sectionals as well, with an 18th place finish. At the Girls' Swim Sectional, Charleston placed 3rd overall as a team! Angie Coe won all four of her events, and set pool records in each of them! Ava Zheng, Molly Weber, and Delaney Goddard also scored in events contributing to the team success. We had personal best times in 9 of 15 swims and season best swims in 14 of 15 swims. Great job everyone!
