Freshman Parents

Welcome Mustang class of 2022! The PTSA Freshman Activities chair is Stephanie Hall.   Please contact Stephanie at stephanieanthonyhall@gmail.com if you are interested in working with the Freshman Activities Committee by contributing time, money, prizes, or food.

Great Expectations, our orientation for incoming freshmen, is August 7th, from 9:00-12:00 noon. 

August 9th, is our Parent Orientation, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the PAC.  This is especially for first time Magnet High parents.

Once school is in session, we would love for you to join us at the New Parent Coffee, Friday, August 17th at 8:30 a.m. in the PAC foyer. Come meet other new parents as well as teachers and administrators.

Friday, August 24th, is the Freshman Speed Meet. This popular event allows the freshmen to rotate around the cafeteria at tables meeting as many other students as possible.  We are looking for several parents to graciously sign up to chaperone, donate door prizes and provide food and drinks. The Freshman Activities Committee thanks you for your support and looks forward to an awesome evening with the students.  It is held from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The Magnet Homecoming dance is on October 6th, and the committee is in the planning stages of the “Dine and Ride” event.  Freshman may elect to participate in this fun and safe way to enjoy their first CMHS Homecoming, without the pressure of having a date. They will dine at the Southern Trace Country Club where they may take photos and enjoy a delicious dinner.  After dinner, a charter bus will transport them to the dance at the Shreveport Convention Center and bring them back for after party refreshments and pick-up by parents.  We are in need of responsible chaperones.   Look for more information.

The Freshman Talent Show is scheduled for March 21st with more information to be provided at a later date.

Often parents are a bit nervous when their child is entering a new school, especially the milestone of high school.  One of the best ways to calm the nerves is to get involved. We welcome you to attend the monthly PTSA meetings. This is an excellent opportunity to network with other parents, hear first-hand what’s going on at our fabulous school, and speak with administrators and teachers in a relaxed setting. The meetings are held at 5:30 pm in the CMHS library. Meeting dates are on the calendar. We keep our business to the point and are usually out in less than one hour. We can’t wait to meet you!
