Re: Principal's Report

The month of November intensified the political talk about this year's elections. The campaigning on the radios, TVs and newspapers surly brought a lot of conversation about this around the supper table. It is always interesting to talk with the students about the election process to see what kind of knowledge they have. Mr. Ela held a “mock” election on November 8 for the 6-8 students. This is a great experience for the students to get a better understanding of how it all works. The following were the results of the “mock” election:

Second Congressional District

Emily Cain (D) = 31 votes

Bruce Poliquin (R) 86 votes


Jill Stein 4

Gary Johnson 8

Hillary Clinton 26

Donald Trump 76

The first quarter flew by and Q1 report cards were issued on November 4st. We held our awards assembly on November 15th where we recognized students with honors, high honors and excellent attendance.

Our flu shot clinic was held on November 4th here at CCS for all district students. We have been holding this clinic for quite a few years and it continues to run smoothly. In a very short period of time a large amount of students receive their shots and hopefully elude the flu illness for the year.

Parent/Teacher conferences were held on November 3rd and November 9th. This is a positive way for teachers and parents to meet and discuss the student's progress and hopefully do any early intervention that may be needed to ensure student success.

Veteran's Day was celebrated on November 11 and hopefully everyone took the time to recognize our Veteran's for their service to our country.

Winter sports season started November 14th. We have 7 girls signed up to cheer, 24 girls playing basketball and 22 boys participating in basketball as well. The season will start off on Thursday December 1th with a play day at Madison. We are looking forward to a great season.

Our Civil Rights Teams Traveled to UFM for their annual conference. Civil Rights Teams from all over Maine travel to this conference. It was a nice opportunity for the students to interact with other members of Civil Rights Teams to share ideas and goals for their schools.

Hopefully everyone enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends.
