Beach Bonfire: We are extremely proud of our annual CHS Bonfire held in the fall on the beach in Belmar.

Duties of this committee include collection of items that are donated as well as transporting items to the bonfire, managing the fire, maintaining a list of attendees, organizing the Freshmen Parent’s Corner, check in guests at check-in table, ensure safety of students during the event, work snack table, and cleanup.

Color Wars: This is the most exciting event of the year for our students! Every June our students get to show off their competitive side as the student Color Teams compete against each other in various events. This committee oversees the event as well as coordinating responsibilities with many parent volunteers for the day, including greeters, BBQ grillers, food & drink set up, and cleanup. It’s a great opportunity to meet parents and be a part of an exciting day at CHS. Contact Chairs Dave Wren and Bill Spezia at email@example.com.
Fundraising/Dinner & Gift Auction: Various fundraising events enable the PSFA to provide financial support for many student activities, events, and scholarships. Magazine sales are conducted throughout the year, and there are seasonal fundraisers such as the Wine & Design, Bluegrass Mini-Golf Parent vs Student Tournament, and selling new CHS promotional items. The biggest fundraiser is the lovely Dinner & Gift Auction held in the spring; this active committee solicits donations and ads, creates event decorations and the program, and wraps, displays, & presents the gift baskets. Many volunteers are needed for this committee and it’s a superb way to meet other parents and learn a lot about CHS.
