MS/HS Charger Choice Event:  The middle and high schools are holding a Chargers Choice event on June 4 from 1:20-2:40. This is a fun-filled afternoon filled with activities that are, for the most part, outside of our every day academics. In the past, sessions have included creative writing, yoga, tie-dye, pinata-making, and many more! This year, we are reaching out to our very talented CTA families in hopes that you may have a hobby, craft, and/or skill that you’d be willing to share with our students on this day. The event is comprised of two 45 minute sessions. If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Bangma at jbangma@ctachargers.org or Trisha Rose at trose@ctachargers.org. Thank you so much!
