On Friday, April 13th, the Read-A-Thon Assembly was held in the CES gymnasium. This assembly celebrates the end of the annual Read-A-Thon, an event where students read in their spare time and get pledges from family members/friends for their reading. This years Read-A-Thon raised $4,100 for the school. Great job to all the students who participated. Keep on reading!
In 2012, two SCRTC students Kelli Bailey and Quinn Sluzenski made a promotional video for the Totally Trades Conference. The video was about Makayla Cobb, an SCRTC student from Woodland High School who got her AWS Welding certification and truck driving license in 2 years at SCRTC. This video has been revived to not only promote Totally Trades, but to also serve as a piece of propaganda for the possibility of reviving the Truck Driving program at SCRTC. The full video can be viewed here or on the SCRTC website homepage.
Just a reminder that the read-a-thon is over and the assembly will be held on Friday, April 13 in the gym at 8:30 am. Students are encouraged to dress as their favorite book character (bring along the book as well!) and they will parade around the gym showing off their costumes before prizes are awarded.
On Monday, April 9th, CMHS held the annual Hunger Games dinner in the cafeteria. Those who attended were served a meal based on what tier they were put on. The top tier had a very fancy meal, but as the tiers went down the meals declined in quality. This event raises money for the Calais Food Pantry, and is always a big hit with locals.
