Calais High School

Jack Lander

This week at Calais High School was a relatively quiet one. Spring sports’ practices are in full swing and all teams are preparing for what we hope will be a very successful season. On Tuesday the High School Jazz combo played a very lively and entertaining show at the Eastport Arts center. The jazz band performed along side bands from both Shead High School and Washington Academy in what was a fantastic show. 

This week also saw the National Honor Society deliver dozens of colorful plastic eggs to the Calais Children’s Project. The NHS stuffed the eggs with assorted candies and treats and delivered them to the Children’s Project where they were hidden and enjoyed by those that found them.  

This Friday is the Maine Association of Student Councils’  Eastern Region Conference.  John LaPointe, current President of the Eastern Region, will be hosting the event with the help of the Calais High School Student Council. The annual conference will be held at Washington County Community College and will be attended by councils from across the eastern portion of the state. The Student Council will also be hosting their annual Hunger Games April 15, at Calais High School. For more information or a to buy a ticket to the event, contact a member of the council or contact the front office.  

Finally, the concert band is anxiously awaiting their annual Boston Fine Arts Trip. This years trip will include a show, dinner at Faneuil Hall, and a tour of Harvard University. The trip as always is made possible by the band’s fundraisers and the generosity of the public.  


That is all for this week. Thank you for reading!
