  • All-County Honor Chorus

    27 of our Countryside Chorus members auditioned at Largo High School for the Pinellas County All County Honor Choir (pictured below). This is the largest number of auditionees CHS has sent for All County Chorus (we grew from 9 last year to 27 this year!). Students had to sing solo in front of two adjudicators: their major and minor scales, vocalizes, and a prepared excerpt of “Ave Verum Corpus” by Mozart. We have yet to find out the audition results of this competitive honor choir but I am very proud of these singers who were musically prepared and represented Countryside High School very well.

  • CHS Boys District Champions 2019-2020

    Monday, February 6 was probably the craziest weather conditions I have every seen a soccer match played in at moments the soccer ball looked like a ping pong ball going against a hair dryer, but our boys came out against Clearwater hyped up and gave it their all. Clearwater came out and played for a tie, they played very defensively and every time Leo got the ball they would quadruple team him and get at least 6 or 7 defenders back. After 80 minutes of soccer it was 0-0 we had 13 shots on goal they had 1. So on to over time where after 20 minutes it was again 0-0 with us getting 7 shots on goal and then taking 0. At this point we went into Shootout. Clearwater goes first and makes it, Adrian Zaquri shoots and it catches the wind and he misses we are down 1-0. Next round Clearwater misses wide and Leo Gomez steps ip and puts it past the keeper 1-1. Clearwater makes the next kick and Ruben Solis makes his 2-2. Clearwater made theirs and Julian Zaquri made his 3-3. Then their Goalie took the next one and Saul Gathe made an amazing save putting tremendous pressure on Jacob Rocha who stepped up and put it away to seal the game 3-4 on Pks. Our boys our District Champions and I could not be more proud of them! They have worked so hard and since January 8th our record went from 3-8-1 to 8-8-4 we have turned around the season and brought home the district title for the first time since 2011 Cameron Burnes Boys Soccer

  • Clearwater Dumpster Art

    CHS Art students worked on this weekend for the City of Clearwater! After working on the Storm Drains a few months ago, they decided they wanted to do the next Beautification Program and Paint a Dumpster. They made the dumpster look like a Jolley Trolley because this dumpster is located in front of PSTA in Downtown Clearwater. So proud of our students and all they are doing to make the world a more beautiful place!
