Sharks in Action - Amazing Weekend for High School!
High school students and staff have been busy, experiencing an active and productive weekend! Here are some of the events our students were involved in:
Into the Woods- The MS/HS spring musical "Into the Woods" was a huge success last weekend! Featuring 25 students from grades 6-12, the cast sang and danced their way into the hearts of the audiences for six sold-out shows in the Black Box Theater! Kudos to the drama and music students as well as Ms. Gifford and Mr. Connoly.
Fine Arts Dominican Festival- This annual tradition creates an opportunity for staff and students of all divisions to experience the traditional crafts, foods and music of Dominican culture. Kudos to our Language department for supporting this wonderful event.
Sea Savers- The Sea Savers club went to PUNTA CANA Ecological Foundation over the weekend, where 13 CMS students and 4 St. George students collected important data for the beginning of a long-term marine study of the area. Students measured survival rates and growth of mangroves recently seeded by the Grade 10 class, did a study on beach profiles using leveling scopes to measure the incline of the beach, and snorkeled to investigate existing coral reefs along with restoration project growth in the area. We also had a chance to dip in the freshwater pools and go on a night hike.
Special Olympics- This was the first annual tournament to be sponsored by the CMS High School. Our Best Buddies club organized this event which saw 40 Special Olympic Athletes, 70+ CMS students and countless volunteers. Kudos to Ms. Costales and her club for hosting this successful effort between Special Olympics and CMS students and staff.
Ashton Cup Soccer- Our varsity soccer team participated in a tournament and finished with a second place finish. Once again our athletes have represented CMS with a positive attitude and successful teamwork. Kudos to the coaches and the athletes.
Robotics Final Build Weekend- A collaborative effort by Team DRIFT to finish the robot they will use when they represent CMS in New York next month. That extra-mile effort paid off, as they ready the robot to be shipped on Tuesday. Kudos to our teachers and students for always representing CMS robotics in a positive manner.
WIDA Academy- This training targeted educators from around the globe as they converged on Carol Morgan School’s campus for 4 days of intensive training to further support the educational experiences we offer our students.
