Starting off the week with Monday, 6-9 p.m. will be the National Honor Society Induction Ceremony in the Big Gym at the High School.

Tuesday, there will be a school board meeting in the Community Center at 7 p.m. The school board meeting is a great place for anyone who happens to be curious about what is going on and what is upcoming with the all the schools and their events.

Thursday, flu shots will be delivered to all the students that signed up for one.

The Fall Sports Marathon will continue though out this week. For a detailed list of all the events happening at the high school, go to and select CHS calendar.


The CHS HOSA students will be hosting a car wash and rummage sale in the U at the front of Carson High School from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Pre-sale car wash tickets are $3 and can be purchased from any HOSA student, but will cost $5 the day of the car wash.

All proceeds go to help send HOSA students to state and national conferences to compete and represent Carson City. They also will be accepting any donated rummage sale items (just bring them to the school that Saturday morning). It’s a good way to get rid of that junk in the garage. Contact the HOSA adviser a if you have questions.


Tryouts for this year’s lip sync will be Monday. They will be right after school and we don’t have AB55 that day; therefore, even if you play a sport you still can be in Lip Sync. There will be prizes for everyone who participates in an act, with a grand prize for the winner. There can be no more than six people to a group, and four and a half minutes per act.


Are you interested in bowling for the bowling club? Pre-season bowling will start 2:30 p.m. Monday at Gold Dust West. The cost is $1 per game. Coaches will be there. Come see what we are all about and get a jump on your bowling this year. Any questions, see Mrs. Mannschreck or Ms. Been in room 256. Please have your paperwork signed and turned in so you can bowl.
