Senior Activity ListsMany scholarship applications will ask you for a list of your high school activities. Different scholarships will want the information in different formats. Pay close attention to the requirements and make sure you have your information in the correct format. Here are two examples of common formats.

Sample Activity List #1

Sample Activity List #2

A list of your high school activities can also be helpful when you are requesting a letter of recommendation. Adding information about where you want to go to school and what you are planning to study would be helpful in that situation.

When Counselors See StudentsThe CHS Comprehensive Education and Counseling Program is delivered to assure that all students receive the same guidance information and equal access to counselors. Delivery of the program involves three Academic Counselors, one School to Career Coordinator (STC), one Intervention Specialist, and all teachers who serve as advisors.

The delivery of the program assures every student the following contacts through grades 9-12.

Grades 9-12 Every student meets with an Advisor, numerous times per year
(see Advisory link on Counseling homepage for Advisory Topics)

Grades 9-12 as scheduled by students; individual appointments are available to see the
Intervention Specialist, STC Coordinator, or their Academic Counselor

However, please note the following restriction regarding student appointments:
Student requested appointments with the Academic Counselors are not available during Schedule Change periods (Two weeks before each term and the first week of each term)

Grade 9 Freshmen receive group guidance from Academic Counselor in English class

Oregon CIS Portfolio Log InThe Oregon Career Information System (CIS) is an outstanding online resource for information on careers, colleges, scholarships and related information. All students use CIS for their required Future Focus class, and it is recommended for research information anytime a student writes a career paper - such as in Economics.

Below are directions to help CHS students remember how to log into their CIS Portfolio Accounts (where they can then save information). Once on the CIS website, tools are easy to explore and the program is fairly intuitive to use.


To reduce software issues, do not use the Firefox or Internet Explorer. USE ONLY SAFARI.
