CHS has a new award that honors staff members of the school. Staff members are nominated by fellow faculty and students, and are awarded on a quarterly basis. The first staff member of the quarter is custodian Ed Marshall. Ed is a very dedicated individual! He thinks of the overall appearance of the school. Ed responds promptly to meet any needs requested. He is one of those “behind the scenes” individuals that we would all be lost without. Ed is very kind to the kids and no matter what you need he will help you find it. Congratulations to Ed on receiving this award!
Today both Kindergarten classes took a field trip to Mingo’s tree farm. We learned how the Christmas trees are planted and how long it takes for them to be full grown. We also explored the wreath factory and saw how other Christmas decorations are made. Thank you for this experience Mingo’s and to our tour guide, Mr. Ellis for your time.
This school year, CHS has integrated a new program where every month, a student from every class is selected as a Student of the Month. Students are selected for this award based on nominations from staff. October’s students of the month are: Cadence Braughton (7), Skylar Smith (8), Zachary Wentworth (9), Hannah Gadway (10), Brynne Lander (11), Kelsey LaCoote (12). Congratulations to the recipients!
On Saturday November 24th, the Addison Coty Memorial TurkeyTrot 5K & Fun Run was held at Robinston Grade School. This event was created in memory of Calais graduate Addison Coty who tragically lost his life in a car accident this July. All money raised from the event is going to the Addison Coty Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will be given to a deserving senior at CHS every year. There was great turnout for this event, with 76 people running in the TurkeyTrot. Eric Mauricette took first place in the race, clocking in at 21:12.
