On April 7th, Central Community High School will be hosting its very first Cougar Academy Program. The purpose of this program is to address the social/emotional aspects of transitioning to high school. The afternoon will consist of activities designed to discuss and prepare 8th graders for some of the choices and decisions they may be faced with in high school, and to help them begin establishing connections with 8th graders from other schools as well as some of our high school students.
For this program, we will need 3 or 4 dynamic juniors or seniors to emcee. The primary role of these students will be to talk on the microphone; giving instructions, making announcements, and otherwise guiding the day. Emcees will also serve as group leaders on the day of the program, and will assist with some planning and preparation prior to the day of the event.
Emcee applications are available in the junior and senior grade level google classrooms as well as in the main office. They are due back to the main office by January 28th. Please see or e-mail Mrs. Koerkenmeier if you have any questions.

Clinton County Electric Cooperative, Inc. is again sponsoring its "Youth to Springfield" and "Youth to Washington" programs this spring. Clinton County Electric and its sister cooperatives across the state have sponsored these programs for over 50 years in an attempt to introduce students to government and the political process. Today, many "alumni" of these programs work in state or federal government or have gone on to serve as elected officials. Two retired members of the Illinois General Assembly are "alumni" of our programs.
Clinton County Electric will sponsor up to twelve sophomore, junior or SENIOR students, whose primary residence is served by CCEC, on an all-expense paid trip to Springfield on Tuesday, March 29, 2022. During the day the students and their counterparts from other Illinois high schools will meet their elected senators and representatives at the Capitol and learn first-hand about the workings of state government. In addition, the students will tour the Supreme Court and other historic sites of Springfield during the day. Clinton County Electric Cooperative will also sponsor two of these students on a weeklong, all-expense paid bus trip to Washington, D.C. on June 17-24, 2022. During the week in the nation's capital the Illinois student contingent will hopefully meet with Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth. The U.S. Representatives will meet with students for a luncheon while on Capitol Hill.
Clinton County Electric’s two "Youth to Washington" representatives will be selected from the contingent that tours Springfield on March 29. (The two students will be chosen from their written and verbal responses to judges who will interview all student representatives in Springfield.)
All applications for Youth Day must be received at the Clinton County Electric Cooperative office by February 21, 2022. The application for Youth Day is also available for download on our website, www.cceci.com under the Youth Programs tab.

ME Day list for students who have earned one has been posted in each locker area. Students who earned a ME day must let their teachers know prior to the ME Day. Students will need to be sure that all work has been completed and turned in on time. Parents must contact the office to report the ME Day. ME days can be used from January through May. We will post the final day for ME days to be taken when we get closer to the end of the year.

KC is still registering students for Spring Jump Start classes. This is a great opportunity for students to take a college general education class at half the tuition price. Also, every student enrolled for a class or classes in the spring will be eligible for an additional one time grant distribution of $500 (associated with COVID funds aimed at reducing student barriers) that would be highly sufficient to offset the remaining cost of the tuition. Forms were posted in the Class of 2022 & 2023 google classrooms. Anyone else interested can see their counselor for the necessary paperwork.
