We are rolling out our very popular and very successful Dream Lottery today. This is for any CDHS student. With every $20.00 ticket you sell, you can profit from $10.00 to $14.00 that you can use to cover school expenses. Please see Ms. Pass in the main office to pick up your tickets.
There is a number of potential graduates who have not filled out a grad gown sizing form. Please see Mrs. Grills in the main office as soon as possible to complete this form.
There are still spots available for driver's education beginning April 3rd. Information can be picked up in the main office. If there are not enough students signed up, the course will be cancelled.
Camp Enterprise forms are here!! This year’s Camp dates are from Thursday, May 4 – Saturday, May 6th.
Camp Enterprise Northumberland is a cooperative effort between multiple Rotary Clubs in the Northumberland regions including Campbellford, Brighton, Cobourg and Port Hope. Grade 11 and 12 students from across Northumberland high schools have the opportunity to attend a 3 day camp at Trent University about business, leadership and entrepreneurship. Students will participate in different business challenges, connect with young business owners, participate in team and leadership games and compete against other teams to win the coveted Camp Enterprise Cup. Any grade 11 or 12 student can go, but SHSM students will have the $50.00 fee paid for by their SHSM program AND earn related certifications. A professional videographer and photographer are hired for the Camp, so each student will
receive their own DVD of their experiences. CDHS has sent over 100 students to Camp Enterprise in the last 10 years – all of them had an amazing experience!
***Students interested in this wonderful experience are reminded that their forms need to be returned by the end of this week to confirm your spot.***
Would you like a $500.00 scholarship? You need to pick up an application for this year's Camp Enterprise held on Thursday, May 4th - Saturday, May 6th, 2017. Please see Mrs. Tilley and Mrs. Murray for more information.
The Ice Certificate:
The ICE certification is an elective certification for all 4 SHSM sectors offered at CDHS. It stands for Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship. During the certification, SHSM students work with a local business and apply a brain-storming and problem-solving model to generate solutions for a problem the business has. This year, we are partnering with the Municipality of Trent Hills to discuss the downtown revitalization project. The certification is a full day event on Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Grade 11 SHSM students and Grade 12 SHSM students who didn't participate in last year's training are encouraged to participate. Check the SHSM folder in Edsby for more information.
Summer Company is an amazing opportunity for students to run their own company throughout the summer. You can receive up to $1,500.00 start-up funding and up to another $1,500.00 at the end of the summer when you successfully complete the program. The Northumberland representative will be here on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. in the Learning Commons. See Mrs. Murray and Mrs. Tilley if you would like to attend. More information is available in the CDHS Talk Conference on Edsby.
