Together, Everyone Achieves More!

You can use most any measure when speaking of success. Some measure by the size of their house or the net worth of their portfolio. However, the measure of real success is one you cannot spend. It’s the way your child describes you when talking to a friend. ~Unknown

Mental Health Check-Up Available to All CHPS High School Students
Mental Health Check-Up Available to All CHPS High School Students

With parental permission, all Cherry Hill High School students are offered the opportunity to participate in a mental health check-up called Behavioral Health (BH) Works. BH-Works was developed at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The program is free, voluntary and confidential.

For most parents, this screening will reassure you that your teen is just experiencing typical "growing pains." For other parents, the screening can help you pinpoint a problem in its early stages, giving you the ability to secure needed help for your teen and reduce the chance that a more significant problem will develop in the future.

You are encouraged take advantage of this confidential screening and return the form that was mailed to your home. The letter and consent form also are available from your school guidance office.

The deadline to return consent forms is Friday, February 22, 2019.

An Important Message from Dr. Joseph Meloche, Superintendent of Schools
An Important Message from Dr. Joseph Meloche, Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents and Community Members,

I am having surgery on Monday, January 14th and will be out of the district for at least two months.

I have been going through a series of tests since September and I must have the Mitral Valve and the Aortic Valve in my heart replaced. During an open heart procedure two mechanical valves will replace the current valves.

The prognosis is positive and I am with a wonderful team of doctors and an excellent surgeon.

I will be completely out of touch with the district for a couple of weeks. During my absence, I have no doubt that the great work that goes on in each of the buildings will continue on a daily basis.

In my absence, CHPS community members should follow the normal chain of command regarding any questions or concerns. This means starting at the building level with your child's teacher, contacting your building principal if the concern is not resolved, and, if the concern still remains unresolved, contacting Assistant Superintendent Dr. Justin Smith at justsmith@chclc.org or (856) 429-5600 extension 4301.

All district business will continue as usual. Board of Education meetings and Board Committee meetings also will take place as scheduled.

I appreciate your positive thoughts, prayers and acts of kindness toward one another in my absence. I look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Sincerely,

Joseph Meloche

Superintendent, Cherry Hill Public Schools
