On June 3rd at 1:00PM, the CHS Class of 2018 graduated. The graduation was held in the school gymnasium and lots of relatives, friends, and acquaintances gathered to see the students get their diplomas. We are very proud of every student who graduated, and we wish them the very best in their future endeavors. We will never forget you and what you brought to this school. (Pictured left, Superintendent Jenkins greets and presents a graduate with her diploma.)
Friday evening was the annual Class Night at CHS. This pre-graduation event shows off the soon to be graduates to their friends and relatives. Awards are then given out by faculty and fellow students and a student prepared class video is shown. This informal but poignant event serves as great hype for graduation on Sunday.
On Friday morning, only two days before CHS graduation, the graduating seniors at CHS took a march through the halls of CES. The CES students had prepared posters for the seniors and handed them to them as they were marching. This tradition is much loved by students, staff, and locals, and gives the elementary children a glimpse of where they will be soon enough.
After a successful performance of “The Internet is a Distract-Oh Look a Kitten!” on May 25th, the CMHS drama club will follow that up with a second performance on Thursday June 7th. This showing will take place at 6PM and admission and food will be by donation. (Pictured left, CMHS drama members Christian Emery and Cassie Carr promote the play on public radio.)
On Thursday May 17th, CES had their annual health fair. There were 35 presenters set up at stations in the school gymnasium. Students were able to the visit the stations, talk to the presenters, and receive treats from them. Thanks to all the presenters, and to Mrs. Clark for spending so much time organizing the event.
On Thursday June 7th from 12:30 to 1:30, parents of CMS students will be able to come to school and support the students as they show off their learning projects for the year. Each student has spent the year learning about a specific topic of interest as an independent study. The 8th graders have also completed Language Arts portfolios. These projects will be on display at students’ stations. All parents are encouraged to come!
On Friday May 18th, CES hosted a VIP family dance in the gym. This dance was sponsored by the Calais PTO. It took place from 5:30 to 7:30PM and cost $5.
