Carlé Chronicle: Kicking off The Big Read, school gets a visit


This Sunday, Feb. 10, English teacher Robin Shrive will hosted “The Big Read” down at the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum.

Every year they apply for a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. This year they held a fundraiser at the Lower Lake Schoolhouse Museum showing the film “The Joy Luck Club,” which is also the novel selection for the year.

The actual program month is not until October, but the fundraiser was held to bring everyone together for a lovely evening. Carlé students attended to help out doing community service as well as be audience members. This year there was a Chinese New Year theme to the event.

The main purpose of The Big Read is “to encourage reading of literature through interesting and diverse cultural activities within extensions of the selected novel,” said Shrive.  

Shrive thanked The Big Read Committee members for their support and interest in the arts. Shrive is “looking forward to October activities” and mentions, “there will be something for literally everyone.”

Student of the Week this week was Summer Gunn. Summer hasn’t been at Carlé for very long but ever since she’s been here she has done some fine work, most notably as a designer in the media room. Summer recently made our secretary a special plaque for doing so much for our school.  Congratulations, Summer.

CHILY winner this week was Charles Trujillo. Charles took the dragon castle incense burner as his prize.

This past week our school had the CAHSEEs for 10th grade students. The English portion took place on Tuesday and the Math portion took place on Wednesday. Best of luck to all of our 10th grade students and we hope to see some great scores out of you all.

On Feb. 7 teacher Alan Siegel spoke at a meeting of the Park Study Club to speak on behalf of Carlé. In addition Siegel will be attending the State Teacher of the Year gala in Sacramento on Feb. 11. Siegel was a member of this year’s Teacher of the Year Selection Committee. Siegel also will run the audio visuals at the event.

Last Wednesday, visitors from West Ed did a walk-through at our school site, observing all classes and programs. In addition, they met separately with a group of students and our teachers.

The visit went very well and Carlé, along with its students and staff, received compliments from both of the lovely women that visited us. Thank you both for your visit, you’re welcome back anytime.

The mouse pad contest in the media room will be ending this week. If any Carlé student would like to get in one last design they would need to have it in by Friday, Feb. 15.  

Progress reports for the fourth grading period will also take place on Friday, Feb. 15.

Jesse Harrell is a student at Carlé Continuation High School in Lower Lake, Calif.
