Combs High School would like to thank our military personnel both active and veteran; along with our senior citizens for their dedication and support of our students and community. Beginning immediately, all athletic and activity events will be $4.00 per person. This rate reflects our gratitude to these individuals who have served our country and community without reservation and we at CHS thank you.
Monday, December 5th - Friday, December 9th:
Welcome to our first full week of December. With only days left in the fall 2016 semester, it is so important that our students attend all their classes and do all their homework so they put themselves in the best shape for passing grades in each class.
For all parents/guardians and students:
November Students of the Month:
CHS---Brea Rivera says---"Kayman White is my science lab aide. It takes a special person to sign up as a science department lab aide knowing how much work goes behind the scenes of science labs. By far Kayman takes the most care out of any lab aide we have had in the past to carefully organize and clean our THREE stock rooms. He carefully helps set up multiple labs a week and puts them away at the end of the week. He has a very difficult job and executes it well with lots of care".
Banner Hospital---Susan Belshe says----"There are many kind and caring students at Combs High School, but instantly I thought of one student in particular, Jessica Salas. Jessica is a senior at Combs High School, and I have had the pleasure of working with this young professional for 3 years. Jessica always has a warm smile; she is patient, kind, caring, empathetic, and an asset to our school and the Nursing Assistant Program. Jessica is the kind of person who would give the “shirt off her back” if she felt someone needed it more that she did. Jessica is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure she will be able to provide “safe” patient care. She is a very responsible and respectful young professional; she strives for perfection when learning to care for patients and residents. Combs High School is a better school because of Jessica. It is without hesitation that I nominate Jessica for the Banner Hospital's character trait of caring".
Kiwanis International---Jonathan Madura says---"I would like to nominate Thomas Nino he is one of my most diligent students who has overcome obstacles and is achieving no matter what. Thomas is punctual and turns in all assignments on time and never hesitates to ask for clarifying questions. One week in particular, Thomas presented a group project all by himself because his group members were all absent that day. Thomas is more of an introverted student, but he courageously stood in front of the class and delivered a memorable lesson plan.
J.O. Combs Unified School District notes:
Thank you for supporting the Bond Election and making this election year a win for our students! Once the sale of bonds commences in July, the community will start to see their bond dollars at work over the next several years with the construction of the Combs High School auditorium, new busses, updated technology, and a district transportation and service center.
