Senate Results Are Here!

CC just wrapped up another round of elections, this time for Student Senate. While student officer positions focus on affairs that deal with specific classes, senators focus more on school wide issues. Each senator can vote on bills and also become part of committees, such as the School Climate committee which focuses on issues of school spirit and school events. Senators can also be student representatives on various committees such as the School Advisory Council, School Committee, and Technology Committee. Congratulations to all of the following Student Senate winners! 2016 Senators Allie Stasior Ellie Rubinstein Charlotte Wallis Samantha Shih Charlie Sweeney Scout Boynton 2017 Senators Grace Pacelle Tyler Lee Millie Ball Emma Della Volpe Conor Smyth 2018 Senators Lili Shoup Lauren Medeiros Mariya Shtiliyanova Emma Garrison Olivia Hanselman Additionally, there was a tie between Bella...

The Best Dressed at Prom!

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

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

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...

The Power of Thanks: Teacher Appreciation Week!

This week, May 4 – 8, is Teacher Appreciation Week! One of the most amazing, yet often overlooked aspects of going to CCHS is walking out of a class and hearing your classmates thank the teacher for the lesson or even test that they just had. The satisfying “aha!” moments that we have in in class are all due to our wonderful teachers. We may not be aware that every day we leave our classes having learned something new. Our teachers teach because they love it, and simply taking a few seconds to show your appreciation for them can be really rewarding for both you and your teacher. Our school teachers aren’t the only teachers in our lives who deserve our gratitude. Our teachers can be friends, writers, and family. Anyone who has inspired or imparted...

CC Lax Is In It to Win It

Despite facing the difficult challenge of filling team spots at the beginning of their season, the CC girls’ lacrosse team has had tremendous success so far. They seem to be defying all odds, and their new players have easily stepped into the shoes of the seniors who graduated last year. Right now, they stand at a remarkable 11-0, having beaten opponents such as Weston, Wayland, and LS. They next play tomorrow on their home turf against A-B, who they have already defeated this season in an 11-7 match-up. With 7 games remaining in the regular season, they look to improve upon their impressive 15-2-1 record from last year. Boys lacrosse, though not undefeated, is also on a roll this season. They hold a record of 8-3, and while they still have some tough opponents to face, they are optimistic. They will also...

Student Government Election Season Wraps Up

This past weekend was election season for three grades at CCHS.  Students were able to log on and vote for their favorite candidates to fill the positions of class president, vice president, treasurer, secretary as well Senate secretary and Senate moderator, which are school-wide positions.  For the first time this year the runner-up for the presidential position was made an equal and second vice president in each grade.  This decision was recently made by the student government after the idea was proposed in the student senate. The class of 2016 race was especially tight this year with six candidates for president.  In the end, however, Julia Bailey-Wells ’16 came out on top, marking her second consecutive election win.  There were only two candidates for vice-president with three-term VP John Davidian ’16 being named to the...
