The CHS LED sign located on Franklin street is on the blink and will not update.  We are working on the problem.  Until the problem is resolved, the sign may be blank or not showing updated events.  Please check the website calendar for the most current events.  Thank you for your patience as we work on this problem.

We at Colby High School would like to thank parents, guardians and our wonderful community for all their support of our school.   We are very fortunate to have a hard working staff, and a group of students that put in the time and effort to reach high levels of achievement.  We hope all of you are seeing positive results from the various opportunities CHS has to offer your students.  


The window for mandatory testing has begun and we will be giving various assessments this spring.  Please remember that these tests are required by the state.  We are finishing our Multidisciplinary Performance Task Test.  This test is a ELA (English Language Arts) performance test that engages students with texts, images, diagrams, and other resources and requires them to write a response.  Students have to pull information from different sources and use that information to write a cohesive, compelling argument or essay.  We will be also administering other State Assessment tests after we return from Spring break.  There are sample questions and more information on assessments on the
www.ksde.org website.  

Many of you already “like us” on our school facebook page, but if you have not I recommend you like our page and follow all of the positive things happenings here at CHS.  Recently we have had a staff video that has been viewed over six million times.  There was also an article in the Salina Journal.  We post our daily announcements on our facebook page, and we have lots of pictures of our students involved in our academics and activities.  You can find us on facebook at Colby High School USD 315.

Key dates to remember:  Graduation is on May 15, 2016 at the Community Building and the Seniors last day is on May 11, 2016.  Please check our website for the updated school calendar.  Our district wall calendars are very helpful, but they are not always accurate.  We have schedule changes that come up throughout the year for different reasons, and the calendar on the website is always the one that is the most accurate.

Go Eagles!
