Other CHS teachers are appreciating the time spent with loved ones this holiday brings. Lisa Schnider said, “I want to hang out with my kids and maybe watch a movie. My love language is quality time.”
CHS Associate Principal Tim Fox said, “My mom actually lives back where I grew up in Oceanside California, so what we ended up doing was sending her flowers.” He continued, “for my wife, tomorrow we will spend some time with her family and have dinner with them, and then also we are going to buy some new couches, and take the old ones to the dump, and then I am taking my daughters to buy some new kitchen items for their mom, which my wife has been asking for.” To finish out the night, he will do their annual tradition of planting some flowers with the family.
With the variety of people that attend CHS, many can find a common ground with trying to find unique and fun ways to show their mother a little extra love this Sunday.
