CChaos Stuns at Amherst Invitational

Last weekend, Concord-Carlisle’s ultimate frisbee team, CChaos, had their biggest tournament of the season: the Amherst Invitational. The 24th Amherst Invitational tournament featured some of the most talented teams in the country. Prior to the tournament, CChaos was seeded 3rd of the lowest pool in the Open B division. After a terrific performance, CChaos repeats as B division second place champions. This was a big achievement for CChaos. Last year’s team placed second in the tournament with a predominantly senior roster. This year’s roster is made up of many new players, which makes this performance particularly impressive. Congratulations, CChaos!

American Idol to end after 15 seasons

American Idol to end after 15 seasons

Next year, American Idol will end after a fifteen season run.  Pop stars like Kelly Clarkson (2002) and Carrie Underwood (2005) got their start competing on the show during its heyday.  The original trio of judges: Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson were legends for the first eight seasons, adding spunk and personality to every episode. Then one by one they left, and the show slowly crumbled, only holding onto a thread, thanks to Ryan Seacrest, who has hosted every season. Don’t get me wrong, American Idol has made a great number of singers in the music industry, but shows like The Voice add a fresh new take on a tired format and trounced them in ratings.  As a final nail in Idol‘s coffin, hilariously sassy critic Simon Cowell left. American Idol will be missed, but it’s been past its prime...

The Best Dressed at Prom!

Prom was filled with glamorously dressed students, all of whom had gone all out to look their best.  Here are some of our favorite looks from the night! Nicki Saleh ’15 rocked an unorthodox boho look.  We’re obsessed with her statement floral headpiece and chic black gown.  She could have walked off the pages of Free People and owned one of the most recognizable looks of the night. Laura Mackey ’15 had a stunning bright red dress.  The cut out is so cute and we love the sparkle! Such a dynamic duo!  Margaret Gill ’16 and James Rennert ’16 were on point in black.  Margaret’s funky black dress (she got it in a thrift store while in Cleveland!) was figure-flattering and elegant.  James had the most memorable pocket square at prom – Kermit the Frog! Sam...

Mother’s Day: A Time to Show Appreciation

Each year, Mother’s Day comes around, but every day, it is the mothers, fathers, siblings, aunts, grandparents, teachers, etc. in our life, who make us who we are. Who goes to work, helps you with your homework, drives you to games and performances, makes meals, and overall, makes things possible for you? Among others, the answer is often your mother.  But how often do you simply stop on your way out the door to tell her how grateful you are?  To tell her that all the things she does really matter?  The answer to that is, probably not enough.  Mothers’ Day is a day to dedicate to your Mom.  Whether  you take a trip to the store and buy the card or a bouquet of flowers is not what really matters; it is the connection and...

Cinco de Mayo

If you take Spanish, you will probably be able to figure out what Cinco de Mayo means, but for people who don’t know, it refers to the fifth of May. Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated in the U.S. and Mexico, mainly in the state of Puebla.  In Puebla, it is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (The Day of the Battle of Puebla). Mexican-Americans view this day as a day to be proud and celebrate and honor their ethnicity and heritage. Not many people really know what this day is all about, though. It celebrates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over France at the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5th, 1862.  They won under the guidance of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.  Many people in the U.S. think...

Veni, Vidi, Vici!

This April break, I was fortunate enough to take part in the Latin class trip to Italy, something that I’ve been looking forward to for months. Participating in the school trip has given me new experiences that I couldn’t learn in the classroom. All the translations we slaved through finally paid off as we saw the real places in which they took place. Last April in Latin II, we studied ancient Roman monuments, focusing on a specific one and giving a thorough presentation on it. My partner and I studied Trajan’s column, learning information through the internet and looking at pictures on Google. Actually seeing the massive monument erected in Rome made us realize that a) as much work as the project was, we were so glad we learned about it b) seeing everything we...
