Please take the time and see your Chargers competing outside of school and the success they are having.  We are very proud of their efforts.

If you are looking for events for your future Chargers (elementary, intermediate and middle school) to take an advantage of this summer please click on the link and see what CHS and KISD offers, Summer Camps for KISD.  It is a great opportunity for younger kids to get involved, maybe find a passion of what they may want to do in the future and get them out of the house during the summer.
