    A message from PTCO:

    Following Prom on April 13th, Cherry Creek High School and the PTCO will host an After Prom Celebration for our upper classmen and their guests.  The objective of the After Prom is to provide a free, safe, and fun event for our Junior and Senior students whether or not they attend the actual prom.  This year, After Prom will be on campus at CCHS from 11:30pm-2:30am. After Prom is a huge undertaking and cannot be accomplished without the continued support of our parents and community – especially when considering recent price increases in food, services, and rentals.  Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to make this the best After Prom ever!  Donations can be made via check made to CCHS PTCO (memo:  After Prom) or via RevTrak HERE

    Prom tickets will be available online through the CCHS website beginning Monday, April 1st.  If you purchase a ticket ahead of time, you will have a sticker on your Minga digital ID that will allow entrance. Please also be prepared with a screenshot or copy of your receipt.

    Prom Ticket Costs:

    • $30 per person with a paid Activities fee 
    • $35 per person without a paid Activities fee
    • $40 per person at the door (cash/credit card only.)

    Check-Out Procedures

    Friday, May 3rd, each senior should report to the Post Grad Center to pick up his or her Check-Out Sheet and Report Card Form.

    Seniors must obtain signatures from the following offices for the Check-Out Sheet: West Nurse, Post Grad Center, Security and Technology. These signatures may be obtained at any time during the week.

    If your student has fines printed on their check out sheet, take the following steps:

    • Return any materials that can be returned
    • Fines can be paid through PowerSchool using RevTrak. Bookkeeping does not accept cash or checks.
    • If, after getting ALL teacher signatures, a fine is written on the checkout sheet, come to Bookkeeping with credit/debit card to pay and clear the fine. These late, written in fines by teachers will NOT appear as a PowerSchool fine, but will still need to be paid prior to checking out. 

    Instructions for paying fines through PowerSchool:

      • Go to https://my.cherrycreekschools.org/
      • Login with parent created username and password
      • Select “PowerSchool” tile
      • PowerSchool will bring up a page that shows information for the student. If you have more than one student, there are tabs in the upper left-hand corner where you can select which student you want to view.
      • Select “Balance” with the coin icon in the left margin. That will lead you to a page that shows fee transactions and a payment button.

     

    Any student that still has an unpaid fine will NOT be able to enter Senior Check Out.

     

    Technology Turn In

    Senior one to one devices need to be returned to the tech center by May 10th.  Seniors who are done with their devices for the year may return them to the tech office (Library-IC801G) starting April 29th.  All stickers and other decorations must be removed.  Fees are:

    • $490 for unreturned Dells
    • $660 for unreturned Surface Gos
    • $30 for unreturned chargers. 

    Seniors returning for additional semesters still need to return their devices. (They will receive another one in the fall).

    Friday, May 10th, 2024, Senior Check-out is 8:20-11:00 AM in the East Gym. Both the Check-Out Sheet and Report Card Form must be fully completed before students may check out.

    Conduct

    The graduation ceremony is a celebration for graduates and their families. Everyone attending deserves the opportunity to enjoy the ceremony. Excessive cheering and noise for a specific student diminishes the experience for the next graduate, so please hold your applause until the end of each diploma group. In line with District policy and State law, Cherry Creek High School reserves the right to remove any individual from graduation whose behavior or appearance serves to detract from the dignity of the occasion. All graduates and guests are expected to participate in a dignified manner. Any inappropriate behavior during second semester or at this year’s Prom may jeopardize a senior’s participation in the graduation ceremony.

    Weather Information

    In case of rain or other inclement weather at 8:00 AM, the ceremony may be postponed or possibly rescheduled.

    Information regarding the postponement of graduation can be found on the CCHS Website, and social media accounts:  @cchsactivities.  If the weather forces graduation to be rescheduled, the ceremony may be held as late as Saturday. Travel plans should be made with this scenario in mind.
