Journalism helps hone your skills ranging from writing to web design, public relations, photography, promotions, teamwork, publishing, and fundraising.  Each week, put your brain to the test and come up with stories that you want to write and students, staff and local families want to read. Op-eds, movie reviews, breaking news, controversial issues at CHS, sports and club coverage — you can let your voice be heard.



No matter your talents, there is always a place for you!
