Humans of CHS

Hannah Gretz and Jackie Hur | March 20, 2020

Senior Ty Bryant When I was in elementary school, I came home from school and my sister had a plate of Oreos for me. I ate the first one and when I went to have another I bit into it and it tasted like mint. It was so gross I spit it out right after, but my sister was laughing really hard so I knew it was her. I wasn’t mad because it was actually pretty funny and I got back at her so it was okay.   Senior...

Junior Sophia “Sophie” Sinder

Shruthi Ravichandran and Grace Xu | March 20, 2020

Can you describe your involvement in STEM? This year I am taking three science classes. Last year I only took two, and then the year before, I took two as well.

A Leap of Time: Sophomore Audrey Schuster celebrates “turning four” with a Leap Year birthday

Hannah Gretz | February 21, 2020

How does having a leap year birthday affect you? I don’t really notice anything. When I was a little kid, I was embarrassed by it. Now, I think it’s kinda cool. When I am 80 (years old) I get to say I am 20, which is cool. Have you ever felt different because your birthday is not every year? Not really. I remember when I was little, I was first starting to understand what a leap year birthday...
