Welcome to my world. I have been teaching at CHS for 33 years and love my job.
 
The Code image below is to access our payment site- or you can send check (make out to CHS) or cash for the supplies and class fee. Make sure to find Lancaster Art 1 Fee if you are purchasing your own supplies and if not  find Lancaster Art Box to pay for the supples.
