On November 01, our Speech and Debate Team traveled to Tillamook and competed in their first tournament. Although it was their first competition, they did very well, even in the nerve wracking setting with students from 10 other schools to contend against! The members that were able to attend and compete consisted of:
Charise Giberson: Competed in impromptu
Kaytee Brock: Competed in impromptu and radio commentary, awarded with 3rd place in radio commentary
Kerissa Engen: Competed in impromptu, finalist in impromptu
Rachel Christensen: Competed in impromptu
Malexa Fillman-Christensen: Competed in impromptu and Lincoln Douglas Value Debate, awarded the 1st place novice speaker in L.D. Debate
And finally, we cannot forget our amazing teacher and coach, Mrs. Sizemore, who made all of this possible!
The judges had many good to say about the contestants from CHS, but what did our fellow students say about their exciting trip and experiences there?
“I was so nervous, not knowing what to expect. But after the first rounds, I got the feel for it and got even more excited to compete and go for the throat! (That’s what Mrs. Sizemore told me to do, don’t worry.) “ -Malexa Fillman-Christensen
“Oh, I really enjoyed our first tournament and I feel as a speech and debate team, we did quite well for our first time. I also can’t wait for the next one. And oh yea, it was so much fun!!!” -Kaytee Brock

The first set of students of the month was recently announced at CMHS.
September’s students of the month were Jack Boothe and Nikki Grover from the 7th grade, Foster Evenson and Brandi Grover from the 8th grade, Jon Coe and McKenzie Hawkinson from the freshman class, Lukas Roubal and Gabby Sherman from the sophomore class, Miles Haas and Darcy Smith from the Junior class, and Ryan Froke and Brittany Abbot from the senior class.
“It feels nice to be rewarded for all of my hard work,” winner Gabby Sherman confessed.
Student of the month was made to recognize the student from each grade that are doing well inside and outside the classroom. Students are nominated by CMHS staff, and a list is compiled of all students who were nominated from each grade. The staff then votes on who they feel is most deserving.
Student’s of the month receive a personal pizza of their choice from Fultano’s, and at the end of the semester their names are put into a drawing to win additional prizes.

Never be bullied into silence.
Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.
Have you ever been called “ugly”? Have you ever been called “fat”?
Has somebody made you feel totally insecure about your appearance?
Everyone in this room has probably been bullied at least once in their life. It’s not the best feeling is it?
It makes one feel insecure, humiliated and very uncomfortable.
It has the power to destroy lives—mentally and physically.
Studies show that one out of six students is harassed or bullied at least once a week in American schools. An alarming fact is that 40% of suicide victims had been bullied at school.
There are a lot of reasons why some people bully. They may see it as a way of being popular, or making themselves look tough and in charge.
Some people bully to get attention, or to make other people afraid of them.
Others might be jealous of the person they are bullying.
They may be bullied themselves.
Some bullies don’t understand how damaging their behavior is and how it makes the person being bullied feel.
Bullies just like the feeling of being powerful and in control.
What can you do if you see someone else being bullied?
If you see someone else being bullied, you should always try to stop it. If you do nothing, you’re saying that bullying is okay with you.
It’s always best to treat others the way you would like to be treated.
You should show the bully that you thing what they’re doing is stupid and mean.
Help the person being bullied to tell an adult they can trust.
