Craig High School College Spirit Week:  In support of our upcoming college fair this Weds, we are excited to announce that this Mon-Weds, April 1-3, we will be celebrating College Spirit Week at CHS. Students and faculty will have the opportunity to show their college spirit and wear the college jersey, shirt, or jacket of their choice. All we ask is that the college it conveys actually exists, and that the student can tell us where that college is located.

Annual CHS Parent Gift:  Our Spring Auction, "One Giant Leap", is just a couple months away (Saturday, May 18th at the The Knoll East Country Club in Lake Hiawatha) and as a CHS Tradition, we have become know for our one big great community gift to the auction.

This year we are looking to create a Washington, DC trip which includes hotel stay, event tickets, restaurant gift cards and admission to various museums tying into the 50th anniversary of the moon walk! We are asking for a$50, however any amount, either more or less, will help us continue this awesome tradition that ultimately supports everything we do at CHS.  All checks should be made payable to the Craig School and submitted by Friday April 5th to the CHS Main Office.  You can also donate through Pay Pal (Pay Pal toamandajahn77@gmail.com) or Venmo (Venmo to Amanda-Jahn-3).
