Cheer tryouts for winter will be held at a later date. For more information, contact the athletic office at 283-1900.

They will be showing the ski film Matchstick Production’s “The Way I See It” at 7 p.m. and the Standard Film’s Stormin’ about snow boarding at 8 p.m.

Tickets will be available through ski team athletes or Carson Valley Sports.


Are you prepared for an emergency? Carson HOSA is selling emergency preparedness kits to help you get ready.

Each kit is designed to be stored in a car or office, the perfect size. It contains a variety of items useful in an emergency, such as: a bottle of water, snacks, Band-Aids, latex gloves, face mask, gauze pads, tissue, hand warmer, hand sanitizer, a whistle, pen, paper, tape and much more.

Kits are only $20 and can be purchased by e-mailing or at the CHS craft fair Nov. 19-20. It is never too early to be prepared.


Connie Duong is in this week’s Senior Spotlight.

She has a grade-point average of 4.7 and is currently taking AP classes. These advanced placement classes are: biology, government, calculus, chemistry and senior literature.

Connie will attend the University of Nevada, Reno in the fall and is interested in biochemistry. She is planning on going on to medical school in the hopes of one day being an emergency-room doctor.

Even with her rigorous courses ,Connie still finds time to volunteer at the hospital. She is also very involved with her church. Connie has a church group called Awana, helping preschoolers with Bible study.


A hearty congratulations to senior, Jonathan Feldstein for being Carson High School’s Student of the Week last week. We thank him for everything he has done for our school, and we hope to see many more encouraged students becoming the Student of the Week and making a difference.

When Jonathan was asked how he would encourage other students to make the right decisions, he said, “Never let anyone stand between you and your dreams. Fight for what you want, work hard, stay passionate and determined and be who you are and you will go far.”

This week’s Student of the Week was awarded to senior, Mitch Parra.

We are proud to have students like Jonathan and Mitch to encourage our students in striving for their goals.

Once again, congratulations to both of you!
