Getting ready for next semester at Carson High

Erin Been
Special to the Nevada Appeal

With one semester behind us at Carson High School, we reflect upon all of the great things that occurred.

All of us at CHS thank the community for their support of the ongoing activities, projects and events here. From Senior Sunrise, sporting events, concerts and plays, to the Craft Faire, we know it takes time and a lot of energy to develop quality experiences for our youth!

We thank you and hope that you continue to support the great things occurring here at CHS!

Parking concerns have been prevalent. Beginning Jan. 5, at the start of second semester, parking in the LDS church parking lot next to the school is prohibited.

Anyone parking in the church will be subject to tow at the driver’s expense. For the safety and consideration of all, thank you for your cooperation.
