    Thank you to the administration for your support and faculty for opening your doors and welcoming our community guest speakers in to the classrooms.  A special thank you goes to our fantastic guest speakers including MCCSD alumni that volunteered their time to discuss career opportunities and experiences. We look forward to this becoming an annual event.

    Quote from Kayla Moloney – CHS Junior “Yesterday’s career day was great!  I loved hearing from alumni and their experiences and learning about their career paths.  We should have that every year with more alumni.”
