CCHS Band Travels to Indianapolis

We’ve all heard tidbits about the CCHS Concert Band’s upcoming trip to The Circle City: an “Indy” here an “apolis” there, but few band room outsiders are aware of the many exciting facts of this honorable trip.  So what is this trip really all about?  Surely the band would not be preparing so rigorously for just any performance (well, actually, the CCHS Concert Band would)? It all began eleven months ago when band director and conductor, David Gresko, known fondly by many band members as Mr. Gresko, or simply Gresko, sent in a recording of the Concert Band’s concert in Symphony Hall, featuring such pieces as “Council Oak”, “Entry March of the Boyars”, and “Mother Earth”, to executives at Music for All, a prominent NGO in the realm of youth music.  These recordings were part...

Huge Weekend for CC Sports

On Friday, the men’s basketball took on St. Bernard’s in an early playoff matchup. The first half was rough for both teams, and they went into halftime tied at 25. CC came out playing fiercely in the second half and cruised to an impressive victory. Austin Hoey ’16 remarked that, “we started off slow…but we were able to get hot in the second half. It shows the perseverance of this team.” The second half scoring was led by center Eric Sellew ’16. When asked about his 30-point performance, Sellew modestly said, “It was our defense that was key on Friday. Defense wins championships.” After a great win by the basketball team, the men’s hockey team had a huge test against the #1 Tewksbury team. Going into the game, CC was a huge underdog that many...

The Health Nut: Healthy Movie Snacks

The Health Nut: Healthy Movie Snacks

As you step foot into a movie theater, the smell of popcorn wafts into your nose, enticing you, luring you into its false, buttery clutches. Did you know that the “butter” that you drizzle on top of your already buttered popcorn is an imposter? The greasy, yellow liquid is actually composed of hydrogenated soybean oil that is colored and artificially flavored. Sounds delish! If you must have some popcorn, get a small- no extra “butter”! Opt for bottled water or fruit juice instead of soda! Nowadays, many movie theaters are offering healthier options such as trail mix, hummus, and more. Also, if you aren’t against sneaking in some of your own snacks and drinks, mess-free fruit (grapes, bananas, berries, dried fruit, etc.), crackers, cereal, and chips are easy choices. If you bring your own popcorn,...

New CCHS Art Gallery Show!

  Come visit the new art gallery show featuring the artwork of many CCHS students! The exhibit features pieces from students in all levels of art classes including Photography, 2D Art, Ceramics, Digital Imaging, Sculpture and Architecture. The diverse artistic endeavors are plentiful. The outside display welcomes you in with portraits taken by Brenna Hagan (’15). As one of the senior projects featured in the gallery, Hagan “decided to use the resources at the school by attempting studio lighting.” Inside the gallery, there are many different types of art from coil pots to abstract colorful paintings. A few pieces that caught my eye when I walked in were Conley Ernst’s vibrant painting of various shapes and figures, and Emma Schofield’s drawing of a woman walking in a beautiful marbling of watercolors, just to name a...

Yearbook Comes Together as CCHS “Elevates”

With the March 25 submission deadline approaching rapidly, Ms. Wozniak of the Social Studies Department and the yearbook editors are wrapping up their work on the 2014-2015 CCHS Yearbook.  Wozniak says that the yearbook itself is progressing well.  It is already farther along than it was at this time last year, which was Wozniak’s first year as the faculty adviser to the Yearbook Committee. This year, the focus of the yearbook is “elevate,” a theme modeled after CCHS’s move to the new building.  So far, most clubs and sports teams are well represented, save for the Theatre Department and a few winter sports teams. Wozniak anticipates a terrific final product that is likely to upstage last year’s edition. The process of designing and crafting the yearbook is equally as fun.  Wozniak enjoys being the faculty...

Beyonce and Jay Z Teaming Up for New Album

At the 2015 Grammy Awards, producer Detail hinted at a joint album from Beyonce and Jay Z, the ultimate power couple in Hip-Hop/R&B music. On the Grammy’s red carpet, Detail told Billboard that “the album is coming, and that the blockbuster LP could very well drop before the end of the year.” Noel Fisher, also known as Detail, won his first Grammy as producer of “Drunk in Love.” The song was released in 2013 as what many fans claim to be the follow-up to their collaborative track, “Crazy in Love” in 2003. Beyonce and Jay Z had their first joint tour last summer after both released albums in 2013. Now we may finally get to enjoy their first joint album. Detail is reportedly involved with a few productions within the album, so we can expect catchy pop hits...

CCHS Robotics Meet the Competition!

  It’s the time of the year where most sports are entering the playoff season and school spirit is in full swing. All around CC you can find rabid fans cheering on the basketball or hockey team. But one team that’s been receiving a little less attention is CCHS’s robotics team, Team 3205. CCHS competes within the FRC, or First Robotics Competition. The competition challenges students to design fully functional robots based on certain “prompts” which are tasks that the robot must be able to compete it. This year’s competition is called “Recycle Rush” and is a competition prompt that has an environmental theme. Robots compete in teams and earn points by stacking boxes and recycling containers. Teams can also earn points by having their robot dispose of pool noodles, which represent “litter.” The...
