Jordan Boschert is a sophmore at CCHS and loves sports, building things, and helping others. His well-rounded talent was what lead the leaders at Duke Energy to choose Jordan as one of their 2014 NaviGo scholars. Jordan says former NFL star Herschel Walker is his bigggest influence because he started with nothing, but with self-determination, became one of the best running backs in NFL history.
Jordan hopes his own self-determination will lead him into a career of either civil engineering or teaching. We can't wait to see what you accomplish, Jordan!

CCHS Drama to Perform Women of Lockerbie

THE WOMEN OF LOCKERBIE opens February 8.  It is a powerful play inspired by a true story.  After the tragic crash of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, the women of Lockerbie washed over 11,000 articles of clothing found in the plane's wreckage, and returned them to the victims' families.  The play is about their determination to turn an act of hatred into an act of love.

 The play is written in the style of a Greek tragedy, but our production is very modern, incorporating video projections and other media to create a unique, theatrical experience, unlike anything seen on our stage before.  The original video, and the set, have been designed by one of our recent alumni, Tyler Gabbard.

In keeping with the play's style and theme, we are offering our audience and our school community the opportunity to create their own display of love and hope in response to the recent Sandy Hook tragedy.  Building from the Sandy Hook Snowflake drive, the drama club will be creating paper snowflakes to display in our auditorium lobby during the weekend of performances.  Audience members can contribute a snowflake by donating $1, or more, to United Way's Sandy Hook School Support Fund.  Donations will be accepted after each performance.

Tickets and more info about the show can be found on the CCHS website, www.cchsdrama.org.

CALLING ALL CAMEL FANS!
Friday, October 19 will be the final varsity regular season event held at Bob Miller Stadium on the campus of Campbell County Middle School. Before the Campbell County Camels football team could take the field for the 2012 football season, they had to work out, practice, and learn plays. But before the 1943 team could play, they had to build the field. The principal of CCHS at that time was F.I. Satterley. It was his desire for his school to start a football program and build a field on which to play. The first team from the 1943 season, under then Head Coach Charles Mayer, did not play on the field. All games were scheduled as away games as the Campbell County High School field was being constructed. The field was playable that next year for the 1944 football season. Wooden stands and field lighting were added later.
 
On September 21, 2001 the stadium was named for Coach Bob Miller. Coach Miller led the Camels from 1963-1978 and also served as the school’s Athletic Director. The Campbell County Schools would like to invite alumni who participated in events held on the field to join in a ceremony to honor the stadium and those who competed in it.

Anyone who played, or coached, football, soccer; ran track, cheered, marched in the band, or another event held in the stadium is welcome to come to the field for the celebration at the conclusion of the game on October 19, 2012.  For more information, contact Steve Hensley at 635-4161.

8th and 10th Graders Fall Testing Begins
Fall testing is on the horizon for Campbell County  8th and 10th graders on September 19th and 20th.  8th graders will take the state-mandated  EXPLORE test  (Click Here for More Information) and 10th graders will  take the state-mandated  PLAN test. (Click Here for More Information)  Both tests help students gain an understanding of their academic development in terms of preparation for college, make the most of their opportunities in high school and beyond, and guide them as they start thinking about future educational and career planning.  These state-mandated tests are part of our accountability measures and are based on the belief that young people - and their parents, teachers, counselors, school administrators - will make more productive plans and decisions if they have organized, relevant information available when they need it most.  Good luck to staff and students as they prepare for these important assessments!

Reiley Beta Club Has Heart for Service

The Reiley Beta Club proved they possess “hearts of service”  by completing service projects throughout the year.  Their hard work allowed them to raise money to donate $500.00  to both  Autism Speaks and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation donation.  Autism Speaks was chosen because Katie Ruschman, parent of a Reiley student with autism  has raised money and donated numerous items to Reiley’s autism unit.  These items (5 iPads with covers, iPad keyboards, an inkjet printer, ink, Velcro, pencil weights, and thick pencils) help remove barriers for students with autism.  The students felt it was a priority to give back to this generous group by donating to their team for the recent Cincinnati Walk Now for Autism Speaks, which promotes awareness and research for autism.  The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) was selected as the other group to receive a $500 donation because one of the Beta Club members has diabetes.  She will participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes to help raise money for research and spread awareness for the disease.  The Beta Club felt it was imperative to show support for one of their own.  Way to go, Reiley Beta Club!

Kentucky celebrates Safe Schools Week
 The third week in October has been designated as safe schools week for all Kentucky schools.   
Campbell County Schools will join schools across Kentucky as we work to keep all of our students safe. The theme this year will be “Cyber- Survivor” and will cover current internet safety topics such as cyber-bullying and social networking. Kentucky Center for School Safety realizes that the cyber-world offers unique learning opportunities, face-to-face communication and skills to assure jobs in the Web 2.0 world, but along with cyber-world “treasures," users must watch out for its   “quicksand” such as cyber-bullying, online predators, inappropriate use of social networking and gaming. An Interactive online pledge is available this year at  www.kysafeschools.org.  The pledge reads:
On our Kentucky school campuses and in the virtual world,
        I pledge to:
  • SURF SMART; by exploring the internet with skill and direction.
  • SHARE LESS; by keeping my personal information private.
  • THINK FIRST; by interacting online appropriately.
