Litchfield County Superintendents’ Award
This past Wednesday, Ella Hampson and her parents attended a dinner at the Cornucopia Banquet Hall in Torrington where Ella received the 2013 Litchfield County Superintendents’ Award for CCS. Ella was selected by her teachers on the basis of her academic achievement, community service, and citizenship, all of which are among her many strengths. She was joined by award winners and their families from throughout the county and enjoyed a talk by television meteorologist Al Terzi. Congratulations to Ella for this well-deserved award.
Author Reading by CCS Alumna

Winter Sports Information
Please look for paperwork regarding the CCS and Park and Recreation ski programs; it was distributed this week.
All schools are required by state law to have a mechanism for students to report bullying anonymously. CCS has a folder for such reports near the main office. While these reports are better than nothing, please know that we tell the students that it is much more helpful in resolving a problem if they can attach their name to a report.
The CCS musical, which welcomes grade 5-8 students to participate, has a new spot on the calendar. Preparation is beginning now; look for performances in March.
Solar Logo Competition
The Energy Task Forces in five towns (Warren, Cornwall, Kent, Salisbury and Sharon) are having a campaign to promote photovoltaic solar panels for homeowners. They have a financial package that makes solar energy more affordable than ever, cutting the cost by approximately 2/3.
Middle schools students from the five towns are invited to submit ideas for a logo for this campaign, due January 15. The campaign title is SUMMER OF SOLAR since it will only be from Earth Day (4/22) to the Fourth of July. Entries can be submitted by mail or electronically on a standard, letter size sheet. Colors are unrestricted.
The results will be announced by February 1, 2014 and a prize of a solar watch will be awarded.
