From Mrs. McArdle:
Students in my Participation in Government class went to Malone for a field trip to work with Judge Champagne. They had a very informative and eye-opening experience. Various government employees discussed with them their jobs and duties at the courthouse, the requirements and qualifications and salary. David Hayes, chief clerk to Judge Carriero described his days as prosecutor and public defender. The students also witnessed sentencing hearings and discussed those decisions with Judge Champagne. Lastly, Tammy Gordon spoke to them about her work with children in Franklin County and Christine Fisher described her job with drug court.

Congratulations to these CCS student musicians. They were part of the annual Area All-State concert held this past weekend in Moriah. It was an amazing concert. Mrs. Trombley and Mrs. Hodges are very proud of their hard work.
On November 17th, the 9th grade class visited Bilow's Dairy Farm in Malone. Mr. Bilow, his son, Andrew and his daughter, Jessica, along with a former CCS student, Cody Wilder graciously gave us some of their valuable time and gave us a tour of the farm operation. The students enjoyed walking through the 2000 cow barn. They were able to see what the cows eat and how they are milked at this expanding operation. Students watched as cows entered the milking parlor, how they were milked and how they exited the parlor. The students enjoyed petting the cows and the baby calves. Mr. Bilow explained the feed mixture that the animals eat. He showed the students the feed bunks and told us how long the large supply of hay and corn would last. Students learned valuable information about a dairy farm and the importance of herd health. We look forward to another visit next year when the new barns and the 100 cow rotary milking parlor is in operation.
Some turkey fun in Mr. Smith's class. Thank you, Mrs. Patnode, for sharing these pictures.
