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.

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.
