The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord, their refuge in a time of distress." Psalm 37:39
Message From The President
Dear Parents,

There is so much happening at CRHS! We are excited to hit the reset button for next year. I want to give a BIG thank you to Laura Valle for chairing our uniform sale. While Risse Brothers was not physically present, we had our used uniforms, PE uniforms, sweatshirts, quarter zips and new shirts here along with spirit wear.

Since we will be requiring volunteer hours next year, a great way to get started will be to sign up for the Back to School Bash on August 11th at 6:00 pm. We will have a special door prize drawing that evening. Stay tuned for more information. Laura Siener has so graciously volunteered to chair this event. Please look for an email to sign up.

We had a few questions regarding masks. As of now, the Marion County Health Department has stated that vaccinated students will not need masks but unvaccinated will. So for now we will go with that.

Please note the calendar dates at the bottom of this letter for start dates and holidays. 

Junior High parents, your supply list is on our website. Senior parents, you should have received a letter from me regarding senior pictures. Please give me a call or email if you did not receive it. We hope all of our students are keeping up with their summer reading.

Let us know if you have any questions or you can post questions on our Parent Community Facebook page.

Thank you for your support and prayers.

God Bless,
Mrs. Hoy

Send your Spirit upon these students

Grant that they may
devote themselves to their studies

the source of all knowledge. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R/. Amen.
