Welcome back to another week of Senator Square — all news about students, staff and events at Carson High School. If you have information you’d like the community to know about in relation to CHS, please contact me

Speech and debate

Carson High School Speech and Debate has begun its new year with energy and optimism. This year’s officers include: Luke Szatmary, Jacob Bertocchi, Sawyer Barnet, Shaylin Segura, Emily Spence and Valerie Meister. CHS debate would also like to extend a warm welcome to Megan Motley, former national debate competitor, new English teacher and now assistant coach to the team. Debate has also begun to expand into the middle school. We would like to thank Bonnie Preston at Eagle Valley Middle School for taking on a speech and debate class at her school.

The team’s first competition will be held at Damonte Ranch High School on Sept. 19 and 20.

Sports sign-ups

Parent portal will be open until Aug. 29. Now is the time to begin or complete the athletic packet for the year. This includes winter sports — ski, wrestling, basketball; spring sports — baseball, softball, golf, track and swim. The athletic department will announce when to turn those packets in for the season. For more information contact the athletic office at 283-1900.

HOSA news

Carson High School has its first HOSA (Future Health Professionals) state officer this year. As a state officer, Bryen Holloway has a responsibility to help lead, inspire and enable the Nevada HOSA students to act and participate with their school chapters. Having a state officer for Carson High benefits the Carson High School chapter because it gives the school direct contact with one of the state’s student representatives for HOSA.

This will help keep the school informed with upcoming fundraisers for the state and the national fundraiser to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Congratulations Bryen; way to represent our growing HOSA chapter here at Carson High School!

FBLA first meeting

The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) will be having its first meeting Sept. 9 at lunch in Mrs. Golik’s classroom, 243. All students are invited to attend. If you have an interest in business, entrepreneurship, stock market, etc., consider joining this club.

This year’s club is led by Junior CHS student Daniel Jauregui as the chapter’s president and senior Margaret Duval as the vice president.

Angila Golik is a government teacher at Carson High School and also a member of Senator Pride.
