Clubs & Activities
The LEGO Robotics Team was established in 2013 and serves as a capstone experience exclusively for our 6th graders. Sponsored by the First LEGO League (FLL) of Massachusetts, competitions are held during the late fall in various locations across the state. For more information on this program, visit contact Coach Sarah Fortino (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Math Olympiads program has been in place for many years and provides competition and fellowship for those students who welcome additional challenge. Following a curriculum that is used by schools around the world, students attend practices on a weekly basis and participate in monthly tests. In preparation for the reality of the 21st-century workplace, students compete as a team and are compared against teams from across the country and around the world. At the end of the year, achievement is recognized both on an individual and also on a team basis. CHS teams have scored consistently in the top 10% of schools nationwide.
