Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
Good morning Coupeville Middle and High School welcome to a new week and a new school format as we maneuver our way through this year of constant change. I hope all of you had a nice, cold spring break. Looks like our weather is going to start to warm up a little this week.
Thank you all for being here this morning. All of us at CMHS are glad to see you all again, and we get to see some new faces, well half of the faces, who joined us this week. Remember our health protocols are in place to keep you all safe and you are required to comply with them at all times when you are on campus.
I want to congratulate all of the athletes who finished up their successful spring sports seasons last week. I would also like to wish our fall sports athletes the best of luck for the remainder of their seasons!
And a reminder... boys if you are in grades 6 - 8 and interested in playing middle school basketball this month, check your emails to fill out the Google Registration Form. This will take place from April 13 - May 1 consisting of two skill clinics each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in addition to two Saturday 3 on 3 tournament opportunities! Once you have completed the online form, a coach will email you with a complete calendar of events (dates / times) and any additional information you will need before we get started. If you have any questions, please contact High School Coach Brad Sherman (email@example.com) or Middle School Coach Jon Roberts (j firstname.lastname@example.org). We hope to see you out there!
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
What is a beehive that doesn't have an exit?
Words of Wisdom...
Welcome back to our halls of education. Education is an interesting word. To educate means, in fact, "to draw out." So the question becomes: What enlightened possibilities can we draw out of your minds this school year?
Let's begin the school year with a quote from a man known by the emperors of ancient China as "the teacher of all teachers" —Confucius, great Chinese philosopher:
Even when walking in a party of no more than three l can always be certain of learning from those I am with There will be good qualities that I can select for imitation and bad ones that will teach me what requires correction in myself.
So as you move through our halls of learning today, notice the behavior of others and make a choice. Which behavior will you imitate, and which behavior will you correct in yourself?
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
