Good morning, all!

Here is the weekly newsletter in case you missed it in yesterday’s take-home folder.

Have a great rest of your week!
The CCS high school forensics team competed at State competition on the UW-Madison campus Saturday, April 18. “Advancing to State is all about the honor of ‘advancing to STATE’,” stated Coach Roxanne Biffert. “The earning of individual medals is an added bonus,” she added. This year the following team members brought home State Bronze in their respective categories: Group Interp members Kathie Althen, Clark Cook, and Kaley White; McKaryn Cross, Prose. Senior Arianna Schielchert advanced to State in the Solo Acting Serious category but was not able compete due to a prior commitment. Earlier in the season, middle school students participated at two state-leveled forensics festivals. Earning individual Blue Ribbons of accomplishment were: second-year member Jasmine Hawkins, Poetry; Sam Plautz, Prose; Katrina White, Storytelling. Mrs. Biffert would like to thank two outstanding CCS High School students for their dedication as coaching assistants and team managers: Arianna Schielchert, for middle school; Carly Sidey, for high school. Sophomore Kaley White summed up the season best by stating, “We did the speaking, but we were blessed with great audiences both inside and outside CCS.”
