Achievements of the 2016-2017 School Year
Cassandra Madrigal takes advantage of Advanced Opportunities at CHS
Congratulations to junior Kayla White.
She earned 2nd place at the regional History Day competition. She goes to state at C of I on Saturday, April 15. Here's what Kayla says about the project: My project subject is Grace O’Malley, Irish woman pirate and leader. During her lifetime in the 1500s, she and her tribe protected Ireland from British rule. She was a strong, brave woman, knew exactly what she wanted, and was not afraid to go for it.
I spent all of Thanksgiving break working on the physical project. It took a lot of work, but with help from my dad's handyman expertise, and his power tools, I was able to come up with something that I never thought I could. It's been an amazing experience, and I can't wait for state!
