School’s out for summer

Cory King
Special to the Nevada Appeal

There’s no denying it: Summer is upon us. After completing exams and assignments, signing yearbooks and saying goodbyes, students left CHS for a well-deserved break. We wish all students and staff an enjoyable summer.

Big congratulations to the Class of 2009. Everyone at CHS is proud of your accomplishments, and we wish you the best in your future plans. You made it!

Summer is the best time to relax with a good book. There are several places online to look for suggestions, including the American Library Association’s “Best Books for Young Adults” list at http://www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists, and other sites including http://www.teenreads.com, http://www.guysread.com, and http://www.readingrants.org.

Also, don’t forget to try the public library for good suggestions and a wide selection of the latest and greatest titles.

The Carson High School football team concluded its spring football drills with a community service canned food drive, and it was a huge success. The football team’s efforts resulted in three truckloads of food for needy people in the Carson City area.

The goal of the effort was to give back to the community in some way for all the support given to the program.

The team thanks all those who were involved in helping support the food drive.

Cadets from the CHS NJROTC recently collected 60 boxes of clothing and shoes for Project Iraq. The items were distributed to needy Iraqi families.
