Congratulations to Mrs. Hensley! Thank you for all you do for our students at CHS.
We are so proud of our Teachers of the Year.
Canes Nation, help us beat our goal of 32 gallons.
Cartersville City School System Baseball Coach Bobby Howard tendered his resignation on Wednesday, July 27. Howard cited misinformation he received on his Georgia retirement and its implications as his reason for resigning.
He said, “I appreciate the confidence and opportunity that was afforded to me by the interview committee and hope the committee members and community will understand my reasons for this decision.”
Cartersville City Schools hired Howard in late June to replace Coach Stuart Chester as the baseball coach.
Cartersville High School Athletic Director Darrell Demastus said, “We were very excited about the experience and ability Coach Howard would bring to our team, but we understand it was necessary for him and his family to make this very difficult decision.”
Kyle Tucker, a graduate of Cartersville City Schools and Clemson University, will serve as the interim coach for the 2017-18 school year. For the past 10 years, Tucker has worked as an assistant baseball and football coach at Cartersville High School. He helped lead the baseball team to its three GHSA AAA state championships, eight region championships and six state semifinal appearances.
Cartersville High School Principal Marc Feuerbach said, “It has been a pleasure working with Coach Howard over this past month and we wish him the best. It is regrettable that he is unable to remain with Cartersville City Schools. However, I believe wholeheartedly in Mr. Tucker’s ability to lead our team, not only to success on the field, but also to instill in them the character and qualities necessary to grow into exemplary young men.”
Important schedule information: Recently some incomplete schedules were posted online. These schedules are NOT official and should not be taken as a guarantee for class placement for the 2017-18 school year. Schools are continuing to work on student schedules and this process is quite extensive. Thank you for your understanding and allowing the schools time to prepare for the upcoming school year.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website for our district and each of our schools! We hope you will find them easier to navigate and keep you better informed about the news and events in our schools. The navigation is consistent throughout the new websites, and you will be able to find information more quickly and in many cases, with fewer clicks! Our new websites have been optimized to access from your smartphone or tablet, meaning you can get the information you need on the go! It will bring students, parents, and community members news and information in a more concise, consistent fashion.
We hope you enjoy looking around! Go Canes!
