Marley is collecting books about black girls to distribute to schools in the US and in her mother’s home country of Jamaica. She started this project because she 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.

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
