Please save the date, register, and come together as a community for an untimed 5K run/walk benefiting Andrew “Sal” Perruzzi. Sal, a CEHS junior and cross country team member, was recently diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma. All proceeds will go directly to the Perruzzi family. This event is student led and organized by the 2023 CEHS cross country team captains and the Class of 2024 student council. The race is set for May 28th at 9:00 a.m. and will start at Cape Elizabeth Middle School, following the same 5k course utilized by the Turkey Trot and Cape Challenge. Race t-shirts will be provided to registered participants. Sal is known for sporting his signature shades while running, so we ask that all participants race in sunglasses. General donations may also be made on the registration site. Come together, cherish each day, do good, Run for Sal!

Dr. Record really enjoyed reading Clovis Keeps His Cool to Mrs. Carey's Kindergarten class on Wednesday. He was very impressed with their curiosity, engagement, and insightfulness. Mrs. Carey has guests reading to her students all month as part of a March Madness fun book competition. Sadly though, this book did not make it to the next round. Therefore, Supt. Record had to keep his cool!
Our 2nd STEAM Night was a success! Check out the pictures and the smiling faces.
Pond Cove Chess Club Wins! Huge congratulations to the Pond Cove Chess Club who travelled to Lewiston, ME to compete in the State Team Championship chess tournament against other elementary schools. The team earned 2nd place in the tournament scoring 14.5 points!! Silvio Cimato had a perfect score of 4-0 to lead the team and Theo Reichl scored 3.5 out of 4 points. This was particularly impressive since most of the team is made up of second graders and their opponents were primarily fourth and fifth graders. Holton Kang, Jack Mavodones, Adrian Reichl, and Charlie Glennon rounded out our second place team. Way to go!!
