The Canterbury chapter of the Cum Laude Society held a ceremony for new inductees. Guest speaker Mary Encabo, Class of 2009, delivered a message reflecting on the value of a love of learning and a respect for differences. Canterbury's chapter of the Cum Laude Society was formed in 1992. It honors and recognizes Canterbury's value of scholarly excellence combined with character. Induction into the Cum Laude Society honors and encourages that extra devotion to learning that marks true scholars.
The 91 seniors in the Class of 2017 received 360 acceptances from 150 colleges and universities. In preparation for graduation, each student is now fulfilling a 40 hour senior internship requirement. Students are gaining experience in settings such as hospitals, newspapers, food industry, congress, manufacturing, electronics and more. In addition to their senior internships, the Class of 2017 also volunteered in the community a total of 9,177 hours.
Sophomore Gabe Gabriel attended a news conference with his family and HS advisor Pascal Losambe on Thursday. Gabe was one of four area students to receive the Taylor Award for Safe Driving, which is a scholarship for driver's education courses. Winners were chosen through an essay contest.
It is time to begin planning for the upcoming school year and for High School fall athletics. The High School has a No Cut Policy - all students are invited to participate in our athletics program. Fall practice opportunities for many teams will begin on the first date allowable by IHSAA by-laws - Monday, July 31. Athletes must plan to be present for 10 practices (one per day) prior to being eligible for a contest in that sport (Exception: Girls Golf requirement is 2 practices).
Music is one of those great equalizers that can really bring a history lesson to life. Mr. Westfall, social studies teacher, and Mrs. Tan, orchestra teacher, planned a cross over Americana Unit for the seventh grade. Some of the string students learned a few pieces of music relevant to the times being studied in social studies. The teachers then helped students make connections about the time period, travel, instruments and lyrics.
