March is Community Month at CHS

Mar. 5, 2018—For the entire month of March, Cohoes High School students are teaming up to participate in programs that encourage healthful habits, building respect, developing creativity, inspiring diversity, establishing connections, informing their futures, protecting our environment, and serving our community.

Each week in March will focus on a different community theme and will include a variety of school and community-based speakers, interactive activities, service opportunities, and other fun events.

Students from the 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 graduating classes will be in competition to see who can participate in the most events. The winning class will be announced at Spring Fest on March 29.
