Hello everyone! At the end of the last grading period we had our annual Fleetball Tournament here at Carlé. It was a great event for all of the kids from the different schools to get together and have fun. The schools that competed were Carlé High School, Blue Heron, Clearlake Community High School and Natural High School.

For the second year in a row, Carlé High School's team was the winner of the fleetball tournament. The members of Carlé team were Kevin Almond, Mark Armijo, R. Browning-Munson, Scott Davis, Jesse Epperson, Ricky Giambra, Wesley Leverenz, Matthew Mack, A.J. Ochoa and Jared Von Rekowski. One Carlé student Brendan Melton played for an opposing team, and (ironically) played quite well.

Other activities organized here at Carlé include a hike organized by Angie Siegel on Saturday, Oct. 13. We played dodgeball during lunch as well and had a small dodgeball tournament.

The CAHSEE exams are finished, and we are confident that everyone passed with flying colors. Installation of our new Smart Boards was completed last Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Oct. 10, Carlé was visited by the new Clearlake Police Chief Allan McClain. Chief McClain wanted to listen to what our students had to say about the police force, and to tell students about the new Explorer Program² he is using to solve issues between citizens and police officers.

With this program he intends to have his officers build relationships with the people of the community, and not just deal with criminals. By doing this they will be able to see stop seeing all people as potential criminals, but as actual citizens of our community. He also is encouraging students and other people to participate with the police force to help them improve, and to even join the force themselves.

“It is easy to complain about something, but it is a lot harder to actually stand up and change it,” said McClain.

He said he wants to recruit officers that are from Lake County and are interested in improving their community.

Last week we announced our gold level students, and we had an extraordinary group this first grading period! Our new gold level students are Kevin Almond, Andre Ari, Jaime Banducci, Anthony Boylen, Daniel Davey, Mia Dupard, Atlee Erickson, Jesse Harper, Janiel Hubert-Benefiel, Dre'shon Hunter, Amy Jones, Yvette Kinyon, Marquis Lamar, Brendan Melton, Daniel Miller Stene Negrete, David Ochoa, Jah-Brela Parker, Jamila Parker, Bonny Passley, Lavonne Pattee, Sarah Roath, Andrew Smith, Matthew Tipton, Kelly Trask, Joyce Walker, and Marlene Williams.

We also would like to congratulate our student of the week, Lavonne “Pogo” Pattee. She was chosen for student of the week for being such a great student, student body president, awesome designer and overall cool person.
