C-Unity will be holding its Spring Reception today at 6 p.m. More than 80 students were selected from Carson High School staff members. Congratulations! This is a wonderful event that brings recognition to all kinds of students. Teachers are asked to nominate any student that they feel deserves recognition, from attendance to grades, attitude to graciousness, these students are all selected by a teacher for a different reason. Entertainment provided by the CHS Capitol Stars and Men's Barbershop quartet.

CHS is having its Spring Blood Drive today in the small gym. We are putting out a big push for this drive because we want to reach at least 200 units of viable blood. Please donate! Any community members who wish to give blood can come to CHS on this day. For more information, contact Angila Golik at agolik@carson.k12.nv.us

The 2007-08 Senior Projects were completed on April 30 and May 1 when Carson High School seniors gave their final project speeches to 100 different panels over a two-day period.

The projects were exceptional this year thanks to the hard work of many community volunteers, Carson High School seniors, and dedicated staff members.

The Senior Project committee would especially like to thank the 347 judges from the community who gave up several hours to grade the portfolios and listen to the speeches. CHS wishes to send a huge "congratulations" to the 440 members of the Class of 2008 who successfully completed all four elements of the project over the course of the last year.

For those who may not know, the Senior Project is part of the English curriculum at Carson High School and contains many components of "cross curricular" learning and subject areas. It requires the use of many skills the seniors will need for a lifetime of learning. They write business letters, complete a research paper, experience 15 or more hours of a hands-on project, and give an 8-12 minute informative speech.

It is a difficult endeavor, but all who participate feel an overwhelming sense of accomplishment upon its completion.
