ANNOUNCEMENTS Friday, October 16, 2015
CAR RALLIES – It has been brought to our attention CPA students are participating in car rallies on the weekends. These are not only dangerous but often involve illegal activity. We will work with our local police in the event you are charged and consequences will also occur at school. If you are vandalizing other school properties than you can expect other schools will vandalize our school. CPA has an excellent reputation … car rallies can tarnish us.
Cross Country Regional Results – Yesterday at Point Pleasant Park our four CPA cross country teams produced outstanding results at the Capital Region Cross Country Championships. For the first time in the school’s history all 4 CPA cross country teams finished first or second in the team events. Our Intermediate Girls, Senior Boys and Senior Girls teams finished second overall in the team competitions while the Intermediate Boys team brought home our school’s first athletic banner for the 2015 season. Congratulations to the first place Intermediate boys who were led by Tristan Kays ( second overall ) and Jonathon Taylor ( third overall ). Other outstanding individual results were provided by Lauren Liem (5th Int Girls), Stephanie Manual (5th Sen Girls) and Brett Himmelman (5th Sen Boys). All runners are to be congratulated for their hard work and dedication to their respective teams. If you see our X Country cheetahs wearing their X Country hoodies in the halls wish them luck at the upcoming provincials in Antigonish.
