7th and 8th grade students travel to Smith Island in November 2015
Jack’s Corner: A Student’s Perspective on the Smith Island Field Trip

By Jack Magennis (11th grade)

 The 7th and 8th grade recently went on a field trip to Smith Island to study bay health with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.  I  had the opportunity to interview  8th grader Thomas Leaberry.  When asked how the trip was. He responded, “It was very nice.” I further asked him what activities there were on the island. He told me, “We goofed off all the time.”  Joking aside, Thomas had an opportunity to visit a local waterman in his house and interview him about what life was like on this remote island .

There was apparently good food on the island as well. When I asked Thomas what they had to eat, he said, “We had pizza, Sloppy Joe’s, and banana bread. And we think there was a banana thief among us.”  When asked overall if he enjoyed the trip he said, “Yes, most of us survived.”


Awards & Recognition

This past month, CCS has been busy recognizing  students and adults.

We had a special veteran’s day celebration  directed  by retired  Colonel and history teacher Mr. John Taylor.  The 11th and 12th grade students coordinated and ran the morning events.  Many veterans came to receive the honoree certificate for service .  It was the highest attendance   of Veterans in CCS Veteran’s Day celebrations.
