Keep an Eye Out for the May Chinese Newsletter!

The Chinese classes have been slaving away on this year’s newsletter, to be released Tuesday, May 28. Organized, designed, and compiled by Chinese 5, the bulk of the content comes from Chinese 3 and 4. A tradition begun last year, the Chinese classes work together to produce a pamphlet covering U.S., World, and China news. All articles are reported in English and then Chinese, and the Chinese students summarize and translate each article painstakingly by hand. The articles are then reviewed and edited by students in Chinese 5. The newsletter also has sections containing a Chinese crossword, Chinese learning tips, an introduction to Chinese artist Ai Wei Wei, and a book review. All sections undergo intensive quality checks. It truly takes a village to get each Chinese Newsletter done, and this one is shaping...

CC Track is Ready to “Do Some Great Things!”

This year, the track season has been going great! “We have a lot of really talented athletes who work really hard, and that’s good,” states Coach Stephen Lane. “This season has been awesome,” says one of the captains, Michaela Haller ’13. “The team has really gotten together well, and we have a lot of talent this year!” “Goals are the same every year,” states Lane, “to help all the athletes improve as much as possible in their events, and become a closer, more supportive team.” Another goal for the team was to do well in the big meets, such as DCLs and Emass. In preparation for next season, the track coaches plan on sitting down at the end of the season and discussing what the team needs to improve on for next year. The...

“What’s Up with the School Cafeteria?!”

“What’s Up with the School Cafeteria?!”

Walking through the school cafeteria, one often hears mumbles and complaints from students who realize that fewer and fewer of their favorite foods are offered. The school no longer provides past favorites such as hot cocoa, coffee, and ice cream in the cafeteria, s’mores Poptarts, traditional Chexmix, and vitamin water in the vending machines, and has also downsized on muffins and bagels in the mornings. The recent changes in food offered by the school are due to stricter state guidelines, keeping in mind that Massachusetts guidelines were relatively strict already. These new mandates are an effort to reduce national obesity; even though, according to Maria Barker, Director of Food and Nutritional Services at Concord-Carlisle, students here are not particularly overweight. The school is a given an 48-page “A-List” of competitive foods, also known ‘as...

NBA Playoffs 2013: Surprising Victories and Reigning Champs

Only four teams remain in the 2013 NBA Playoffs. 1. The Miami Heat. The Heat soared their way into this season after winning the NBA championship last year. MVP Lebron James led the heat to a 27-game winning streak this year and to the first seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. They overpowered the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round and had a nice long rest until the next round, where they lost the first game to the Bulls because Bulls guard, Nate Robinson, had a huge game. Miami then kicked it into high gear and won the next four games to advance to where they are now. 2. The Indiana Pacers. After emerging onto the scene last year, the Pacers had another solid season this year and came into the payoffs determined to win....

Promenade and Its Perks

Prom 2013 – this year was the first year that junior and senior prom were combined. The results were awesome, at least in my opinion. Everyone looked beautiful, and although the skies were cloudy and there was some sprinkling, people were able to take pictures outside. It makes you wonder how many Facebook albums are titled “Prom” every year! My prom experience was, as mentioned before, a good one. There was some trouble with the boutonniere and corsage, I’m not going to lie. My wrist was too small for the super-cool snap on the corsage (you know, the snap bracelets you used to have in elementary school), so we spent some time scouring for duct tape. The boutonniere was also a struggle, even with previously-watched how-to Youtube videos. Finally, most of the pictures ended...

Tie-Breaker Election Results

May 13, 2013
By

It is rare that high school politics are the highlight of hallway gossip but with the recent, unprecedented tie-breaker for the upcoming senior Senator election, elections have taken a turn from an annual, lack luster procedure to something slightly more nail biting. In the words of Senate Moderator Vineet Chandra’14, “Congratulations to now two-term Senator Anna Ringheiser on winning the hard fought (and unprecedented) tie-breaker election,” and “We wish Stevie Yang the very best going forward, and are certain that she will continue to play a role in school-wide issues in the months to come.”
