Learning with Passion and Gusto: Ruettgers Seminars

There’s a good chance that if you asked a CCHS student about the Ruettgers seminar you would be met with blank stares. However, despite its obscurity, the Ruettgers seminar is an important addition to CC’s teaching environment and adds a host of interesting courses for students over their careers at CCHS. Supported by generous donations from Carlisle’s Ruettgers family, whose children attended CCHS, the Ruettgers seminar gives teachers the opportunity to teach material they are passionate about and might not get the opportunity to discuss within the framework of their standard courses. Each Ruettgers seminar typically has 10-15 students and centers around discussion within the class. Courses that are offered are eclectic, ranging from Climate Change to Technology in Fabric. This semester’s Ruettgers seminar, “Tasty History,”  is taught by Mrs. Winkler-Au and Ms. Fischer, both Social...

UNDEFEATED: CC Men’s Soccer 2014

Last summer, the world was transfixed by the fast paced and highly competitive action of The World Cup.  You don’t have to go to Brazil, however, to watch quality men’s soccer; in fact it’s only a quick walk up to the turf fields to watch our very own CCHS soccer team play.  The soccer program at CC has always been a strong one, but the success the team is experiencing this year is almost unprecedented in recent memory.  At press time, the team holds a record of  13-0 with their last two wins over Lincoln-Sudbury and Westford Academy at 2-0 and 4-0, respectively.  The team this year is led by Head Coach Ray Pavlik and captains Mitchell Palmer 15’, Charlie Booth 15’ and Garrett Leahy 15’. The team this year is strong in many aspects...

Gender Equality Club Joins CC

CCHS now has its own Gender Equality Club. The goal of this club is to promote Gender Equality both locally and worldwide. Although this is an ambitious task, the co-Founders and co-presidents Ruthie Block ’17 and Madi Bode ’16, have many new ideas to get students engaged and hopefully make a global impact on Gender Equality. After getting the “Green Light” from Mr. Miller, the founders set out on finding a teacher advisor and raising awareness of the club. At first mention to peers, more than 30 students expressed interest in joining the club. After Ms. Anderson of the Math Department agreed to be the advisor, Block and Bode set out to establish concrete goals for the club. “Our main priority” states Bode, “is in raising money for the advancement of the equal education of women...

Apple Struggling With Competition from Google and FBI Investigation

This week has been difficult for technology giant Apple, which has faced challenges on many fronts. Although the release of the iPhone 6 and 6+ has generated some buzz,  the products have received mainly negative reviews from technology magazines and websites. Consumer satisfaction has also taken a dip after the the phones became available, with the construction and usability of the device coming under heavy fire. In particular, the iPhone 6+ was demonstrated to be bendable by many online reviewers, causing many tech users to become concerned about the quality of the device’s frame. This information became a scandal among consumers and many users of the social networking platform Twitter dubbed it #bendgate. The backlash continued with the debut of iOS 8, which reportedly caused some of the new phones to lose their cellular...

MLB Playoff Predictions

I realize that the postseason is underway, but the quest for the title is still young. Stakes are high, with six eligible and qualified contenders remaining in the tournament. It should be noted that the World Series will be played on American League home turf this year. The American League champion will play the first two games at its home ballpark, then travel to the National League champion’s city for the next three games, before finally (if necessary) returning home for the final two games of the seven game series. Depending on the strength differential between the two teams, the Series could be won in as few as four, or as many as seven games. On Sunday, the Baltimore Orioles became the first team to advance to the second round, which is referred to as...

Madi Bode Rises Higher

One of the biggest rising stars at our school,  Madi Bode ’16, recently hosted a show last Thursday at CC’s Colonial Sound to celebrate the release of her new EP: Higher. Madi started singing when she was 8 and from that point on she always knew that she wanted to be a performer. She describes her style as alternative pop, and it is greatly influenced by Demi Lovato, Ellie Goulding, Pink, Sia and Sara Bareilles. Most of her songs are centered around ideas, although sometimes it sounds like she is talking about a person because it’s easier for her to write that way. The name of the album comes from her favorite and the most meaningful and personal song on the album, “Higher.” She says she likes it because “its the only song that is just...
