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...

Voice Looking for Paid Technology Specialist

We at the Voice are incredibly proud of this paper and the countless hours of work that go into producing it each week.  But we are always looking for ways to improve, and recently, we’ve received a generous grant from the Parents’ Association to update and modernize our website!  Unfortunately, those of us at the Voice are mildly technologically illiterate, so we could really use a tech-savvy student’s help!  If you’re interested in building us a new website and want to make some money, please contact Jenna Wong at jwong16@colonial.net or Mrs. Lee-Dubon at klee-dubon@colonial.net.

Freshmen Senate Election

Freshmen Senate Election

CCHS’s student government is composed of two bodies, the class government and the Student Senate. Many CCHS students are only aware of their own class government and neglect to consider the importance of the senate government. The Student Senate is composed of around thirty students from all four grades as well as committee members and executive members. The class governments are mainly concerned with specific events (such as dances) that pertain to a certain grade level. The Student Senate focuses on issues that are relevant to the entire school, such as blood drives and Spirit Week. The CCHS Student Senate has also had a great deal of involvement with many of the initiatives that are impacting our school. It has student representatives on most committees such as the School Committee, School Advisory Board and the Building Committee....

We Must “Think We Can”: CC Mental Health Week

High school can be fraught with stressful situations, socially, academically, athletically, and everything in between.  The CCHS Wellness Committee has thus put together a Mental Health Week to offer support and advice on how to beat stress!  The focus this year will be on eustress, or the optimal level of stress necessary to perform at a high level.  This means living “In the Zone” and helping your brain relax enough to focus on completing a task.  Becoming overly stressed can cause someone to feel distracted and anxious, rather than motivated.  Therefore, one of the goals of the CC Mental Health Week is to aid students in maintaining a healthy balance between being driven to succeed and becoming panicked. The Wellness Committee has done extensive research on how to help students de-stress, and found in one...

CC Golf

After a slow start, CC Golf has hit their stride and hopes to repeat a State Championship. CC started off the year by losing some close matches, but picked it up by winning four of their five matches last week. The team is very young with only two seniors. Captain Jack Gardner ’15 explained that, “we are a young team, getting better as the season progresses and becoming closer over time”.  Although the team is young, there is no shortage of talent. Freshman Maddie Vegura commented that, “it is a deep team with a lot of talent,” pointing out that all of the players are very skillful. Another interesting dynamic is the energy that every player brings to the matches. Richie Crosby ’16 commented that, “playing on the golf team is a lot of fun”...

Don’t Be Exiled to the Bathroom: Protecting Yourself and Others

This week is Mental Health Week and as high school students (and teachers!) we need to take time to educate ourselves about stress and and mental strength. At this time of the year we should also remember that our physical health is just as important as our mental health. Without being physically healthy, it is very difficult to be mentally healthy, and vice versa. Many of us have already been sick due to the illnesses that have been going around the school and will probably continue to get sick if we do not protect ourselves and others. Here is a list of ways we can avoid getting sick this coming season: Wash your hands! Keeping hands clean reduces the spread of viruses that cause illnesses so make sure to wash them with soap and water...

Kicks for Cancer 2014

Once again, Kicks for Cancer was a huge success in raising funds and awareness for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Sixteen teams (7 of the top 20 teams in the state) played in a total of 8 matches total at 11:30 at 2:00, 4:30 and 7:30 on September 27th. Our soccer teams played Lincoln-Sudbury, with JV Girls winning 2-0, JV Boys tying 2-2, Varsity Girls losing 3-1, and Varsity Boys winning 2-0. The 8th Annual event raised over $35,000 in addition to raising $2000 from the Pink Dance on Friday night. Originally instituted in memory of Special Education teacher Steve Wells’ mother, Lois Wells, CC continues the tradition of playing the games annually.  The atmosphere was great with the entire crowd decked out in pink. Overall, the positive energy and the great school spirit made this event...
