CMS Student Council Update for October 2018

I’m Hope McGlaughlin, and I’m the new president of the CMS Student Council. To update you on what the student council has been doing for approximately the last two months, we have finished the October bulletin board, made posters for the Halloween Costume Contest the CMS Student Council has arranged, sold RADA, and attended to regular duties, such as sorting empty bottles and counting the money we have made from selling snacks. We are especially looking forward to the CMS Halloween Costume Contest next Wednesday! We also plan on helping spread the word for the Turkey-A-Thon, and organizing the Wreaths for Hope fundraiser in the near future. An idea we’ve had is to maybe hold a competition among the 7th and 8th grade homerooms to see which homeroom can bring in the most canned goods to use at one of our next fundraisers. That’s all for now! (Write up by Hope McGlaughlin)

The CHS volleyball team played the Class C State Championship against Washington Academy at Ellsworth High School today. The Lady Devils fought hard until the end, trying their hardest to bring home a third straight gold ball for Calais. However the Raiders ended up taking the win, leaving the Lady Devils as runner ups. We are all very proud of the Lady Devils who fought so hard this season and played some great volleyball.
