The California Department of Education has named Ceres High School a California Distinguished School! The CDE calls this recognition “one of the state’s most important ways to celebrate exceptional schools, districts, teachers, and classified employees for their innovation, talent, and success in supporting students.” Exceptional student performance and progress toward closing the achievement gap are two of the factors considered in the selection process. CHS is one of only three Stanislaus County schools honored this year! #CaliforniaDistinguishedSchool #TheCeresWay

Today, @cvhawknation had the opportunity to hear from @betterforbella and @stancounty about the dangers of fentanyl overdose and the importance of pledging to stay away from drug use. Fentanyl overdose is a serious and growing problem in Stanislaus County. Students were able to pledge in remembrance of Bella and her story to stay away from drug use, especially fentanyl. If you or someone you know is struggling with drug addiction, please seek help. There are resources available, such as addiction treatment programs and support groups. To learn more about programs or clubs contact your Student Support Specialist at your school site. #betterforbella #pledge #wellnessmatters #theceresway
