News From CCS
Donovan McCray had already won the CCS Geography Bee, become one of only 100 qualifiers for the statewide competition with his strong performance on a written test, and starred on the CCS Quiz Bowl team. On Friday, he went to Central Connecticut State University to compete in the Connecticut Geography Bee. The first round consisted of a written test and Donovan did well, advancing as others were eliminated. In the second round he ran into a buzz saw; eleven other students got perfect scores and moved on to the finals. His community is very proud of his effort and achievement. Well done and congratulations!
After a few delays, we are set to start practices for the CCS Lego Team for grade 5-8 students. If you know of a student who may be interested but has not signed up, spread the word! We have received inquiries from younger students looking to be involved. For now, we will stick with grades 5-8 but we may be able to invite younger students to a session or two later this spring.
CCS is holding a book drive for Reading Partners, a non-profit organization that supports literacy programs in low-income neighborhoods. Drop off new or gently-used books in the container in the lobby this week!
