Mr. Margretz    Mrs. Smock    Mr. Slifka

With a total of 109 years combined, we are sad to say these veteran teachers will be leaving CPU High School. Their wisdom, knowledge, experience will never be replaced. We have many fond memories of each of them.

If you'd like to see them and send them your best wishes, you are welcome to join us to celebrate.There will be a retiree reception on May 4, 2016 in the CPU High School Commons from 4-5 p.m. with a ceremony at 4:30 p.m. Let's  honor Mr. Jim Margretz (39 years), Mrs. Deb Smock (34 years), Mr. Scott Slifka (36 years), along with Mr. Greg Rhinehart (31 years) and Mrs. Brenda Tjaden (16 years).  All friends, family, students (both present and former), as well as current and past staff are invited to the reception. Refreshments will be served.



Congratulations to Spenser Bensley, Trent Pfiefer, Austin Pendleton, Levi Farmer, and Alex Stephens who placed first in Anomolies and 4th overall in Cyber Defense at the IT Olympics this weekend. Bolbi's Army Tina Wichert, Josh Parbs, David Leedom, Austin Dougherty, Andrew Bowen and Elliot Bensley took first place in Apps Development. And last but not least Melissa Graf won first place in the logo contest. Check it out below......Way to go!



We are in the year 2016 and before we know it graduation will be here. The seniors and their parents really need to keep up with the bulletins and double check all counselor's newsletters and scholarship dates. Below is the primary information you will need. Be sure to mark them on your calendars. You are free to contact the office if you have any other questions....thank you!
