Last week's ciappino feed was a great success. It raised thousands of dollars that will provide scholarships for students of Lower Lake High School as well as Carlé High School. People who served at the feed included not only Carlé students – Jamila Parker, Travis Conine, Brendan Melton and Bonnie Passley – but also high school graduates: Susie Luke, Roger Fouche, David Sutton and Holly Bray. This goes to show that our students don't do community service just for the sake of credit, but for the sake of our community.

Courtney Montiel and Katherine Ledesma are approaching graduating now that they have each presented their portfolios. Presenting a portfolio of the work they have done throughout their school career is one of the requirements here at Carlé in order to graduate.

The Interact Club is starting to sell Carlé sweatshirts now. They are hoodies in the school colors, and they will let students represent their school, and stay warm, of course.

Some of our media students are attempting to enter into a short film contest held by Sony. In exchange for entering a synopsis of their movie they will be provided with a complete educational video editing program, that they will be able to use in the making of their five-minute film. The contest winners will receive one of three $20,000 prizes. It is a very exciting learning experience for these students!

A councilor from Job Corp, Debra Cherry, came to interview students, and to answer questions from students considering entering into Job Corp. After showing a video introduction to the Job Corps, the entire school had a chance to ask her all the questions they wanted. The Job Corps offer an opportunity to receive entry-level training for an occupation to students who cannot afford to pay for a college.

Our Cabaret, on March 8, is only a few weeks away now, and we are preparing great music to be played live for our guests. Our music teacher, Dan Maes, is helping students put together their musical performances, as well as preparing to even play at the Cabaret himself.

Student musicians with performances already prepared include Bryan Layne, Atlee Erickson, Bonnie Passley, Jamila Parker, Ino Moreno, Alex Meek and Faron Moran. These are just some of the students that will be performing when the Cabaret arrives. Not only will students be playing for the guests, but also teachers and graduates, including Alan Siegel, Bill MacDougal, Cy Passley and Dan Maes.

We already have many great musical numbers that we know our guests will enjoy. Dan Maes feels that Carlé is “a wonderful place in a wonderful world,” and that is why he chose “A Wonderful World” by Louie Armstrong to play at the event.

That is all for this week's chronicle! Have a great week!

Atlee Erickson is a junior at Carlé High School.
