Students in Ms. Delyea's art classes are repainting the maze at CHS on the patio of the arts wing. This is an annual tradition in preparation for up coming graduation festivities. The maze is a replica of the walking labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France. Students enrolled in Advanced Placement Art History study the Chartres Cathedral and its iconography during the course of instruction. It is said that moving through a walking maze with intention calms the mind. Next time you are at CHS give it a try!
Students enrolled in the visual arts programs at CHS assisted local Veterans in advance of the Memorial Day holiday to honor our deceased service members. We help the local chapter of the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars in honoring and remembering all service members with the placement of a flag on their stone in the cemetery. If you have a servicemember that needs to be added to our important work, please contact our local veterans groups.

The Fish Hatchery shipped out 2200 rainbow trout to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife on April 19th. Each fish weighed over a 1/2 pound. The morning and afternoon hatchery classes were involved as well as the Applied Math class that meets at the hatchery. Both groups aided in the day before prep for this event by counting, sorting, weighing, and crowding the fish. The fish were used to stock Deep Lake and Starvation Lake days before the season opener of lake fishing on April 22nd.
Today, April 12, 2023, at approximately 10:56 AM many schools throughout Washington received a bomb threat email. Colville School District received this email. At no time did we believe that students or staff were in jeopardy. Our district security director was immediately in contact with other security directors throughout the state. We notified dispatch and had the building administration check their facilities. At this time it is believed to be a hoax. We take every situation seriously and our student and staff safety is paramount. Please contact our District Office at 509-684-7850 if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
