CCHS end of school year events: Denis Cleary Moot Court Competition, METCO Senior Dinner, CCHS Art Exhibit and Olympic Champion DeeDee Trotter visits CCHS

Moot Court
The Chief Justice in last Tuesday’s case was Barbara Lenk of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts. Preparation for each of these cases takes several weeks and countless hours of research, the creation of carefully mulled over legal arguments, and impressive teamwork within pairs. The final case was a showdown between petitioners (Millie Ball, Maya Calabria) and respondents (Zoe Dettelbach, Grace Pacelle) in the 2017 case Peña-Rodriguez v. Colorado. This was the first all female final that the competition has seen in many years. All the girls performed admirably.

METCO Senior Dinner
This year’s graduating class includes 13 students from Boston enrolled through METCO. Last Friday we celebrated their accomplishments with family, friends, and members of our CCHS staff at our annual senior dinner. Six of the students attended elementary and middle school in Concord, while seven joined us as freshmen at CCHS.

CCHS Art Exhibit
The annual CCHS Art Exhibition at Concord Art runs from May 18th through June 4th. The opening reception Thursday night was a great success.

Olympic Champion DeeDee Trotter visits CCHS
Olympic Champion DeeDee Trotter visited CCHS on Thursday to share her compelling story not only from her experience training for and participating in three Olympic Games, but also from traveling the world as a professional athlete.
