Teacher Angie Siegel taught an adult certification program that educates the kids of Carle on hazardous materials. These student must pass a California certified test. After passing this test they are certified first responders. This program is very beneficial to have on your resume. We would like to mention the students who received their hazmat certification: Stacie Clemons, Donovan Harevy, Alexis Kennedy, Nick Kieffer, Alfred Lewis, Matt Madrigal and Teagan Tompioner. Congratulation to these students for receiving this prestigious certification.
Jacob Walker designed a mug for Chief Willy Sapeta for consistently returning to help Carle and the hazmat program.
During advisory on Friday February 24th student council held a contest between advisories, the contest was a building challenge. The students were split into teams and given materials to build a tower (marshmallows and spaghetti), which ever team built the largest structure that can support a marshmallow wins. The winners of the contest were the students of Lance’s advisory.
