On Friday, April 27, all of the students who earned silver level or higher were treated to a day of watching movies.
The students that earned the privilege were Tucker Barnett, Cody Beers, Saffron Blue, Cameron Carrillo, Chelsea Cherney, Brandon Cruz, Sabrina Farnan, Jade Fox, Junior Garcia, Ashely Gravelee, Ray Green, Jesse Harrell, Shania Jones, Anthony Montalvan, Chantilly Pannell, Marya Pantoja, Corissa Schoonderwoerd, Kyle Scott, Tonya Smith, Monique Throop, Charles Trujillo, Austin Weldon, Trevor Wilson and Erica Woods.
Many people helped with setup and running the movie. Jessie Harrell brought the movies, Pat made snacks, Derek Grace, Dylan Ward and Daniel Hernandez helped set up and run the movie, and Alan Siegel helped by over viewing the entire event, set up and clean up.
On May 3, Carlé High school had its open house. The parents were shown around the school and then took part in a site council meeting to decide next year's budget. After the meeting everybody got to enjoy a wonderful potluck dinner.
If anybody has any computers they don't want or need Siegel is looking for them. Siegel's media class works to give students computer repair skills by letting them work on broken computers, and any computers that are fixed are donated to students and their families who are in need of one. Thomas Valdez is the student who is in charge of the computer project.
This week students who came to Carlé as juniors or lower will be working on the STAR test.
The STAR test is a semi-competitive way to show how students and teachers have worked together to better themselves.
It is the hope of all the teachers for every student to try their best and do well on the test. The teachers and state would like to stress the importance of getting to school on time, eating breakfast, getting a good night's sleep and staying calm during the testing.
Teacher Siegel has been invited to go to the Palace Hotel in San Francisco on Sunday, May 6, to
attend the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) conference.
There he will be able to talk with the top game design companies in the country. Siegel will be a panelist during the Games and Learning Forum.
It is his hope that this will open Carlé up to beta test some new learning games.
Jade Fox is a student at Carlé Continuation High School in Lower Lake, Calif.
