    December 2, 2016

      Vending machines give out snacks for a tiny fee, and are a simple joy to the consumers. However, at CHS, they are just a hassle. CHS is home to multiple vending machines from the auditorium to the cafeteria. Plenty of snacks are available ranging from ice cream to Cheez-Its. There are also two soda machines, and one water machine. The selection is of good quality for a public school, however the maintenance and handling of the machines ... READ MORE »»

    After a year long wait, Clarksburg Premium Outlets (CPO) opened Oct, 27 in Clarksburg, MD. Located off of Interstate 270 at Exit 18, the outlet is only a 20 minute drive from CHS.

    CHS had a food drive during the month of October to provide food for local families in need of assistance.
