Garden Club Cultivates School Spirit

Garden Club Project complete

Garden Club members pose behind their completed project

The High School Garden Club put their green thumbs to the test this week with a new landscaping project.  Settling on a plot near the high school, the students edged the garden with decorative stone to blend with the desert landscaping style of the campus.   The garden’s plants–a variety of water wise bamboo called FirePower Nandina–are creatively arranged to spell out “CAS.”

Join Us for Financial Aid Night at CAS High School on Wednesday, March 9th at 5:30 p.m.

Yearbook Sparks New Interest in Students

History is being made at CAS! This is the first year that students will have a yearbook, and have creative input on the structure and aesthetics of the yearbook. Although nothing is set in stone just yet, members of the yearbook club have said they’ve made it very student friendly and want it to feel like every class has their own unique trait. In previous years, CAS has not had a yearbook only adding to the excitement for the new addition to our school. Julie Mendoza, Senior, said “I love that each class gets to choose characteristics for the yearbook that seems really fun.” Mendoza also mentions that she feels like many other students will enjoy the way that the yearbook will be constructed around them. Mrs. Hughes, Journalism and Yearbook teacher said “I’m just hoping that this year’s yearbook captures the enthusiasm and pizazz of the CAS community.

The yearbook should highlight all that CAS has to offer, especially the great things our students have accomplished and been a part of throughout the school year.” Mrs. Hughes has mentioned that yearbook is off to a great start and hopes that the first CAS yearbook will set an example for many yearbooks to come. If you have any suggestions for yearbook themes and ideas or are seeking advice, please visit the suggestion box in the front office.
