Hello readers, and welcome to the Carlé Chronicle, your primary source for all things Carlé.
As of this week, we have started our fifth grading period and are two-thirds of the way through the school year.
Our students strive to maintain a hard-working attitude and a willingness to pursue their goals to their full extent.
Seniors are now finishing up their portfolios and are on the fast track to graduate.
Sustainability awards are being given out to students who go above and beyond and consistently manage to receive silver and gold level across multiple grade periods.
To achieve gold level, a student must make a total of at least 15 credits per grade period, with an attendance rate of 90 percent or above.
Gold level students receive a wide variety of benefits, from gold-level trips to open-campus privileges during lunch. Students are encouraged to achieve gold level whenever possible.
This week’s student of the week was senior William Brown, an intellectual individual with a wide variety of literary talents.
The Lower Lake Academy, headed by science teacher Robin Giese, has commissioned the Carlé crew to help them design and make 83 special plaques for their higher achieving senior students.
We take the time to give special thanks to our hard working students Roy “Buggy” Kirk and Carlé graduate Lance Thurston for their efforts in both helping create the plaques and for their general assistance around the school.
We also would like to thank Dr. Barry Munitz, who has generously donated $1,000 to help fund our own school’s senior plaques and their materials.
Carlé's student government is planning a very entertaining Hollywood-themed prom, which will take place on May 9.
The students will be selling custom-made keychains created by graduating senior Sabrina Farnan for $7 apiece to help raise funds for the prom, and currently have approximately 100 keychains in stock ready to sell.
If you would like to buy a key chain to support prom please come by or call us at 707-994-1033.
Students and theater enthusiasts DeAndre Morris and Paul Yanez have pooled their creative talents and have been working on a play they will unveil at Carlé's upcoming open house. While details are scarce, the duo’s one-act play is based on Roman and Greek mythology, and will feature many promising actors in a mix of both comedy and tragedy.
In closing, we would also like to take the time to thank our secretary Barbara Dye, who not only manages to keep things at Carlé running smoothly and efficiently around the school, she takes the time to assist students whenever possible with a smile on her face. Her efforts make the school just a little brighter every day.
