On May 9th, as the 2024 Spring semester was drawing to a close, the Bull Dog Alumni Association put on its annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon for all CNHS teachers, administrators and support staff.  About 180 team members were treated to a tasty catered lunch and had a chance to mingle and share “war stories” about the 2023-24 school year.

While teachers and staff were enjoying lunch, students were invited to write positive affirmation messages to staff members.  These hand-written accolades were delivered to staff mailboxes after the luncheon had concluded.
