Carlisle School Committee hears trip requests
At the September 19 meeting of the Carlisle School Committee the eighth-grade team requested and received permission to plan a class trip to New York City. This would replace the trip to Quebec now that Spanish as well as French is offered as a foreign language. The curriculum focus of the trip would be social studies rather than foreign language. The eighth-grade team will return, with a proposed trip itinerary and estimated costs, to the October 3 school committee meeting.
Band Director Tom O'Halloran has requested and received permission to plan a trip for the Senior Band to travel to Delaware and Washington D.C. He too will present the itinerary to the committee at a later date.
The girl's field hockey team will be divided into "varsity" and "junior varsity" teams because 52 students wanted to participate and the school wants to give everyone a chance to play.
Soccer is currently co-ed. Whitney Smith asked whether there could be separate boys and girls teams. She thinks that many girls would like to play on an all-girls team. Principal Andy Goyer said that he would look into it for next year. He was not sure if there are enough other all-girls middle school teams to play against in the area.
