On Wednesday, Dec. 19, the Lower Lake Community Action Committee will be hosting its monthly dinner.
As we have for more than 15 years now Carlé will have community service volunteers helping out. This month they will include Mayra Pantoja, Junior Garcia, and Charles Trujillo. All will be serving and cleaning. The students will be led by retired Carlé teacher Verna Rogers.
New this week at Carlé: Several fun activities have been taking place led by Student Council. Events like karaoke, dancing, door/tree decorating and voting for future events have already been held in advisories.
Friday, Dec. 21, will be a half-day at Carlé, and also a fun day. The day hosted by the student council will be filled with friendly competition, more decorating, dancing, watching movies, and much more.
Antoinette Percoats had her portfolio review last week in front of staff and friends. According to staff Miss Percoats did a great job highlighted by a recorded song she performed. We’re all very proud of you and are very happy to see you progress further.
In Alan Siegel’s Civics/Economics class the students are participating in an Econ Game called “On Your Own, Coast to Coast.”
The Econ Game is a life simulator that puts the students into real life situations forcing them to save money and budgeting specifically what they’ll do with said money.
This game is an excellent tool, and has given many a great insight on troubles of adult life. You can choose where to live, to own a car or not, how much money you’ll make, whether to have a roommate and much more.
The most useful tool is the budgeting aspect of the game. While it is the hardest part budgeting is an important financial tool that every student at Carlé should take advantage of and utilize in their real lives.
Finally here is the list of the Gold and Silver level students from the second grading period who are, once again, showing just how successful our students can be. Thanks you guys and girls, keep up the great work by continuing to be fine examples for Carlé.
