MARLEY DIAS BOOK DRIVE: Please join us and the Robbins House in supporting 11-year-old Marley Dias and her #1000blackgirlbooks project. Marley is collecting books about black girls to distribute to schools in the US and in her mother’s home country of Jamaica. The project began because Marley was frustrated by being forced to read almost exclusively books about “white boys with dogs” in school. The only place she could read books about children who looked like her was at home. For more information please watch this video of Marley: http://www.cc.com/video-clips/byjl3g/the-nightly-show-with-larry-wilmore-marley-dias-talks–1000blackgirlbooks Or contact us here: Nicole Azarian, nazarian17@concordps.org Lily Supovitz  las61098@gmail.com Jurgens Michel jurgens.jr@gmail.com  Books can be dropped off in the Main Office or in the Learning Commons.  For book ideas, visit http://weneeddiversebooks.org/where-to-find-diverse-books/

Reminder – Any student interested in playing a spring sport must register on familyid.com and have a valid physical on file in the nurse’s office prior to beginning of practices on 3/21/2016.

 All students who plan to participate in a school spring sport must have a physical examination annually.  The physical must be done and a copy of it must be on file with the health office.  This needs to be done prior to participation in the sport, which includes practice and tryouts.  All physical exams by Massachusetts State Law are only valid for 13 months from the date of the exam.  Students who have a valid physical exam at the start of the season and the expiration date occurs during the season, become ineligible to participate on the date of expiration.

Make a difference in March! Time to kick off the CCHS Terracyling Spring campaign.  We are collecting clean cereal bag liners and shiny energy and granola bar wrappers.  Locations for the Terracycling bins are outside the MARC room 425, inside the Rivers room on the third floor, on the second floor near the learning commons, and in the cafeteria. Look for the tall yellow bins for cereal liner bags and white bins for shiny energy.  Help us reach our goal and collect 1,200 cereal bag liners and 2,500 shiny energy bar wrappers, so that every student at CCHS has helped. All proceeds will go to Charitywater.org and provide clean drinking water to people in developing countries.   EFSG, Priscilla Guiney, Peter Nichol and Nora Murphy
