                                                Chew on THIS:  
      My Fight to Lengthen School Lunches

I, being a Chichester student, think we should have a longer lunch period. First, I’m personally used to having to eat too quickly. Then, that bad habit of eating too fast follows me home. That is extremely unhealthful in and of itself. Next, there are studies that show that shorter lunches result in kids eating fewer fruits and vegetables. Third of all, when the lines are longer on more popular lunches it is very likely that we will only have less than ten minutes to eat. That means kids don't have the time to finish their meals. That leads to kids having less energy and brain power and doing worse in school. Chichester is already a great school, imagine how adding 10 to 15 more minutes to our lunch period could help us excel even more here at CCS. Please consider my thoughts and ideas about this serious problem and thank you for reading this. Have a good rest of your day!

Scarecrow Contest
By Allison, Rams Editor

Student Council has just concluded a scarecrow contest where people and groups created scarecrows and brought them to the school to enter in the contest. Folks created any type of scarecrow with any theme and entered it in the contest. All they had to do was contact Mrs. Mara, who runs Student Council and let her know they were putting out a scarecrow. The prize for the favorite scarecrow, voted on by citizens and school families, was  $50 which was split between the two winners which were:
  • the Eldredge family, who created Pokemon
  • Mrs. Douglas’s Second grade class scarecrow who was posing as a farmer.

Thank you for supporting our Student Council Project!

These are some of Mrs. D.'s second graders posing with their scarecrow.

Cup Stacking
By Madelyn
Hello guys, I just found out that that there is going to be a cup stacking club at our school. For all of you who don’t know what cup stacking is, I will tell you. Most years my school, Chichester Central School, we have time after school and some of us get together and stack cups. It is a lot of fun. Once we did a fundraiser and got a bunch of  cans and stacked them. It was a lot of fun! Grades 3-8 are able to join. We get to together once a week in the multipurpose room. Our guidance counselor, Mrs. Carrier, is usually in charge of that. It is a lot of fun. If you are interested in joining, please talk to Mrs. Carrier.

The Masked Man
Emma Cox
As I walked down the marble steps all eyes were on me. My auburn hair was pinned up with a few strands curled close to my face. My mask hid who I was and I was glad. Tonight I didn't want to be a princess I just wanted to be a commoner. As soon as I stepped out onto the dance floor a man about my age asked me to dance. His green eyes took me away, only half of his face was hidden from me, when he spoke his chocolate smooth voice eased my racing heart. When his hand touched my waist to bring me into the dance position, my heart skipped a beat. I asked him his name but he said he couldn't tell me. He was a brilliant dancer. The one thing we talked about that saddened me was that he was leaving for England tomorrow and I might never see him again.
We danced all night and at midnight I realized that we had made our way to the garden in the back of the plaice. The moonlight made him even more beautiful. Once at the waterfall we sat at a bench near the rose bushes. He took my hand in his then slowly untied the strings on his mask. I was shocked when I realized who the man was. He is the prince of Denmark. I was promised to him ever since I was three. Prince Matthew went to untie my mask but I ran through the gardens and to the gazebo where I hid from my father whenever we visited my mother's sister in France. The prince followed me and I tried to run again but he grabbed my arm and took off the mask. I couldn't look at him; he released my arm and started to stutter sorry and I just walked back into the gazebo and sat down. "Princess Claire?" Prince Mathew asked.
"Yes sir." I said back looking at him.
"You ran from me. Why?" I looked up to see the prince sitting across from me.
"Well...it's complicated I am promised to you and I didn't want you to think of me like this."
"Oh well we're promised to each other?"
"Yes....you didn't know?" I asked walking over to him and sitting near him.
"No I didn't my father never told me. He said not to worry about it."
"Oh well I'm sorry we had to meet this way." I said stealing another look at Matthew. He was already looking at me. I looked away quickly and I could feel the blood creeping up to my ears. "I have to go back inside. My father will be looking for me."
"Naturally, but before you go can I have one last dance?" Matthew asked.
"Of Course. You are a great dancer." We danced for thirty more minutes before Matthew walked me back to the palace. He told me that he was happy with his father's decision about the arranged marriage and I agreed.
"I'll see you soon Princess Claire." Matthew said. He bowed to me and kissed my hand.
We were married next spring on my eighteenth birthday. I stand next to my love today giving our daughter away to her love.

And we all lived happily ever after.

The Walk Against Breast Cancer
By:Allison M

The Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October the 18th, at the Memorial Field, in Concord raised  $466,871.00, to help find a cure for breast cancer. Anyone who could walk 3-5 miles teamed up to help raise money for this cause. Also, companies came and helped sponsor this event. In 2012, 1.7 million people were diagnosed with breast cancer. Twenty-five percent of those people were women. Student Council held a raffle to help raise money for this cause. The raffle was a beautiful quilt. Heidi Parker received the honor to take the beautiful quilt home.

Generous People of New Hampshire
by Lindsey

Thank you to those who gave to people in need this holiday season. Whether you donated toys, dropped money in the Salvation Army kettle or sent in canned goods to CCS you made a big difference. But don't forget that people need help in the New Year too. Some kids don’t have their mom or dad home because they are in the military overseas in a different country. Some other families need help from those who can give food, clothing or school supplies. Please think about how you can help your community. There are lots of ways you can contribute, like donating food to the Food Pantry or a nearby food drive. The Salvation Army and Goodwill are open all through the year for donations. It’s easy to get busy after the holidays, but people need help all through the year. So don’t just walk or drive by. Give however you can to the needy.  Give them hope and joy.
