The Academic Spell Bowl Team is a team made up of high school students, grades 9-12, who compete in competitions locally, regionally, and state-wide.  Ten students participate in each competition and are required to spell nine words each.  The words get more difficult as the rounds progress.  At the end of the competition, the team that has spelled the most words correct wins for their division.  The top three teams move on to the next competition.

CHS Ambassadors is a program that allows responsible students in grades 10-12 to serve their school and their community as administrative assistants. These students must be recommended by at least three faculty members. Ambassadors exhibit qualities of leadership including friendliness, work ethic, reliability, organization, confidence, and positive attitude. They get experience building communication skills and taking leadership roles while helping our faculty and staff during school related functions. You may see them taking tickets, greeting and seating guests, and even serving food. Ambassadors help out with Summer Registration, the Alumni Banquet, Freshmen Orientation, and Graduation. Out in the community, Ambassadors have helped the PTO, the Civic League, and Dollars for Scholars. These students volunteer their personal time after school and sometimes on Saturdays. They are an inexhaustible resource of service.

The FFA is the career and technical education student organization that is an integral part of the instruction and operation of a total agricultural education program. As an intra-curricular organization and essential component of the total program, the local agricultural education teacher(s) serve as the FFA chapter advisors. The many activities of the FFA parallel the methodology of the instructional program and are directly related to the occupational goals and objectives. As an integral part of the instructional program, district and state level FFA activities provide students opportunities to demonstrate their proficiency in the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they have acquired through the agricultural science and agricultural business total program. Agricultural education students demonstrating a high degree of competence in state level FFA activities are highly encouraged to represent their local communities, districts, and state by participating in national FFA activities.
Instructional activities of the FFA require participation of the agricultural science and agriculture business education students as an integral part of an agricultural education course of instruction and, therefore, may be considered an appropriate use and amount of the allotted instructional time.
