Matthew Goldberg, Debate Team, CCHS Update - Important Information


Congratulations MIAA Coach of the Year, Matthew Goldberg

Congratulations, Coach Goldberg for being named MIAA's 2021-2022 Coach of the Year Award for Women's Swiming and Diving!

MIAA Coach of the Year Award States, “Recognizing Excellence in Character, Achievement, and Coaching”. This award seeks to recognize and honor “teacher coaches” who have had an impact on the lives of student-athletes, by encouraging them to succeed and by helping them develop self-confidence, ambition, a sound work ethic, and other skills or values necessary or helpful for success in their later lives. Award candidates have a record of encouraging student-athletes to be well-rounded (i.e. displaying excellence in areas of scholarship, citizenship, fine arts, etc.), as well as a reputation, among their peers and the athletic community, for fair play, good sportsmanship, and the development of these attributes in their student-athletes.

Please join us in congratulating Coach Goldberg on this outstanding achievement. Coach Goldberg will be honored at an awards banquet hosted by the MIAA, surrounded by members of CCHS's administration and other MIAA award recipients, in early December. Way to go, Coach!

Debaters Have GREAT Success at MSDL Novice Tournament

At our first in-person debate of the year, the Massachusetts Speech and Debate League's Novice Opener, held on Saturday, October 22, CCHS's debate team had a strong showing, earning 7 wins and 5 losses overall. Competing for the first time were the teams of Lucy Butler & Caroline Haskell, Anthony Babu & Evan Wang, Chengzhe Jiang & Evan Moffitt, and Noah Arthur & Lucas Leonard. Speaker recognition went to Anthony Babu, who placed 16th of 196 speakers, placing him in the top 8% of individual speakers at the tournament. Debate team captain Richard Li served as a judge, along with parents Shannon Babu, Thomas Moffitt, and Amantha Butler. Thanks so much to the strong core of parents! Many thanks to the debate officers for preparing the team for success. - CCHS Debate Team Coach, Tim Averill

Thank you so much to Tim, the parents, and the School for all your support to the CCHS Debate Team. The team really appreciates everything you all do to support our participation in Debate. I would also like to congratulate our debaters for competing in their first tournament! They did very well, and we are so proud of them! - CCHS Debate Team Captain, Richard Li

Great First Quarter

Q1 Ending November 4 and Q1 Grades

Quarter 1 ends on November 4 and Q1 grades are due on Monday, November 14 by 10:00 AM.
