Come see what CHS students are designing. Drafting and Engineering students will be displaying their work before and during the May 13 school board meeting at the Community Center in the Sierra room starting at 6 p.m. Advanced CADD student Ashley Andreas has this to say about her design work this year, “This year I have been challenged to think outside of the box, and I am very excited about the end products. We have had some great assignments this year and everyone should go check out the amazing things the CADD classes have done.”


Link Crew will have a car wash fundraiser 10 a.m.-3 p.m. May 17 in the front driveway of Carson High School. A donation of $5 is requested.


The Carson High School PTSA Safe Grad night is fast approaching and we are reaching out to the Parents of CHS students and to the community for volunteers for the overnight event. The Safe Grad Program has been a tradition in Carson City for more than 25 years and provides the graduating senior class with a safe, fun and sober celebration on graduation night.

The Carson High PTSA, Carson City Sheriff’s Office, Nevada Office of Traffic Safety, and local businesses and residents help sponsor the event. This has proven to be a tremendous success throughout the years since there has not been a graduate fatality on graduation night since the program’s inception in 1988.

The Safe Grad event will be May 31 thru June 1 at the Community Center.

We still need more than 60 volunteers. Volunteers will help with registration, bag check, food, games and activities, door monitors and raffles, and set-up and clean-up. This event could not take place without our generous volunteers that make it happen.

If you are able to assist, please email with your name, phone number and shift preference.
