Welcome!

 

 

 

Dear Students and Parents:

Welcome to our 2017-2018 school year at Chester High School.  We are excited to embark upon a new year that promises lots of learning for our entire school community.  As demands and complexities of schooling increase, it becomes more evident that we must collaborate to ensure that our children reach their maximum potential.  We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for ALL our students.  We believe that everyone in our school community must take ownership of all learning within our building.  We want our students to encompass all skills needed to be successful 21st century learners. 

With this in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Chester High School.  Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the SIC, or a member of one of our booster clubs, you are encouraged to be involved! 

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school.  Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you through calls from me or one of our staff members.  If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call.  I look forward to a great school year.  WE ARE CHESTER!!!!!!!!!

 

Sincerely,

Dr. Duane Graham

Alive at 25, New Requirement for 2017-18

(From their web site)

"Alive at 25 is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council. It is designed to prevent the #1 killer of teens, automobile crashes. SC Alive at 25 is taught by off-duty Deputy Sheriffs, Municipal Police Officers and SC Highway Patrol Officers. The course is delivered in one 4.5 hour program which focuses on the behaviors, decision-making and risks facing young drivers every time they get behind the wheel.

 

Since South Carolina's program kicked off in 2007, the state's death toll among drivers 15-24 has dropped by 37%. This reduction is amazing, but one life lost is still one too many. The council developed the Zero Hero campaign to emphasize South Carolina's goal of Zero traffic fatalities among young drivers."

Many schools are requiring students to take the Alive@25 class and it will also become a requirement for CHS students next school year in order to purchase a parking pass for school. There is a $35 fee for the course, which can be taken anywhere, but will be offered at CHS and GFHS soon.

 

The Alive@ 25 Class will be offered at Chester High School on the following dates at 3:30:

 September 21, October 19, November 16, January 18, February 15, March 15, and April 19.

All dates in August at CHS are full, but the course may be taken at another location.

 

Students can learn more about the program and register online at http://www.scaliveat25.com/
