Elizabeth Cravinho and Trevor Wells were awarded the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents’ (CAPSS) Superintendent/Student Recognition Award for leadership and service to the school, academic prowess relative to ability, and service to others in the community. The ceremony held on Tuesday December 10 at Saybrook Point Inn.
Ian Neviaser, Superintendent of Schools of Regional School District 18, made the presentation as part of a program designed by school administrators to recognize students who have served their schools and communities while maintaining good scholastic progress.
The Superintendent/Student Recognition Program awards a Certificate of Excellence at the discretion of the local superintendent of schools according to a distribution formula set for all state school districts.

On Monday November 11, Veterans Day was celebrated with a service conducted at the Veterans Memorial at the Lyme Town Hall Complex on Hamburg Road. The service included remarks from local dignitaries, attendees joining voices in the Pledge of Allegiance, and, harkening back to the origins of Armistice Day, the tolling of a church bell eleven times followed by a moment of silence to remember all those who have served throughout history in defense of our freedoms. While sharing his remarks with those in attendance, the current Chairman of the Lyme Veterans Memorial Committee, Steve Olstein, took a few minutes to recognize the efforts of Evan to conceptualize the idea, pursue the approvals and funding, and then carry out over the course of the summer all the work required to create a border garden around the town’s Veterans Memorial. Mr. Olstein presented Evan with a hat signifying honorary membership in the Lyme Veterans Memorial Committee.

For the Spanish Honor Society’s most recent bulletin board, Jane Scheiber, Rachael Larson, and Arianna DelMastro focused on Latinx art in three major categories: music, literature, and visual arts. The board educated students about significant Latinx artists, but it also contained some unique attributes. To offer a better understanding of the musical aspect, students viewing the board could visit Spotify to listen to a specially-crafted playlist consisting of music by the featured artists. Students were also invited to take a tear-away poetry sample in either English or Spanish to further immerse themselves in the world of Hispanic literary arts.

The Student Advisory Council (SAC) sponsored a Thanksgiving Day Luncheon for the entire High School faculty and staff on Monday, November 25. The students planned, organized and prepared the delicious meal to simply say "THANK YOU" to all of the people who help and support them on a daily basis. For decorations, students wrote 'thank you' notes on strips of orange paper and spread them out for them to send their message home. It was a wonderful and yummy way to kick off the season...and prep for Thanksgiving!
