Ring in A New Tradition - Charter Day!

Charter Day is here: today marks the start of a new AACHS tradition!

June 13th is the date that Central High School was chartered. Starting this year, we encourage you to join us as we celebrate Charter Day by revisiting those “glorious days of old” and leading the way for future generations to preserve our Central traditions.

How can you ring in the new tradition today? 

    • Make a contribution to our newly established Charter Day Campaign  monthly gifts of $18.36 or higher will receive a special Central-themed token of our appreciation! 
    • Reach out to a classmate or teacher, and plan a get together; check the reunions page or attend an AACHS event to reconnect.
    • Message your class representative and see how you can get involved with your class and Central! Visit this year’s Spring Journal to identify your class rep or contact the Alumni Office.
    • Post your favorite CHS memory on our Facebook page – be sure to include #CharterDayCHS.
    • Take a picture with your spiritwear and tag us on Instagram.

Celebrate Central today, and every day. As the newest class has joined our alumni community – the bell rung as a symbol of commencement – here is some sage advice from one alumnus:

 “Here’s the rule – you can only ring the bell three times,” Ramon Guzman (271), AACHS Board Member and President of the 271st Class reminds us, as he reminisces on that moment ten years ago!

One: It is special to think of how many of us have rang the bell and connected our history of ‘those glorious days of old’ to present-day scholars.

Two: To know that every single class that graduated from Central heard it, and all future ones will, too – is a special tradition to keep alive.

Three: Join me in honoring our dear old High with a new tradition annually on June 13th: Charter Day!

The investment you make on this special day of giving will provide vital resources to every student, department, and program—the areas of greatest need to support and sustain academic excellence at Central High School.
