All Seniors at Clinton County High School who have attained College & Career Readiness were honored at a Christmas Extravaganza on Friday, December 11th. Students received lunch and decorated Christmas cookies. The students in Mrs. Kayla Mora's class baked the cookies and made all the decorations for the event. The Extravaganza was part of the recognition program at CCHS being held each month for students, honoring their dedication to becoming college and career ready. As more students become college ready they will join in the celebration. Thanks to CCHS Principal Stacey Evans and Superintendent Charlotte Bernard for making the lunch possible! Below is a reflection on the Extravaganza, written by CCHS Senior Kierra Mason.
The college and career ready students were rewarded for their diligence with a pizza party and cookie decorating extravaganza. The various Christmas themed cookies - snowmen, snowflakes, and Christmas trees - and the crafty, wonderful table decorations - paper plate angels and tin can snowmen - were created by Mrs. Mora's class. The administration purchased Major's pizza, icing, and food coloring for the students to enjoy and decorate festive cookies during the holidays. Along with the colored icings, the students had an array of sprinkles to top off their creations. The students anticipate and appreciate these rewards, striving for their best in order to participate. Some students expressed that they aimed to pass the Compass exam and become college ready to be involved with the reward festivities. Hayli Pillar said, "This is one of the only reasons I really tried to pass the Compass test!" The students genuinely enjoy these activities and the administration's efforts to compensate them for their hard work and dedication. Ms. Denney, Ms. Hunter, Ms. Poore, and Ms. Choate collaborate to put these events together and enjoy rewarding the students. They allow the students to come up with ideas for their celebration each month, and January is right around the corner!
