Winter Carnival Highlights Student Initiative and Talent

By Ben LaRoche, ’15

Edward Little’s 2015 Winter Carnival officially came to a close on Friday and many of the events were an overwhelming success, though there were a few hiccups along the way. The event was completely planned by students, and highlighted student art, musical skills and other talents.

The Art Walk was able to raise $245 for the New Beginnings Youth Homeless Shelter, all while entertaining the mass amount of students that were crammed into one hallway. The free day had a little something for everyone to enjoy, such as movies and games, and even if you didn’t want to do anything, you still had the option to simply kick back and unwind. The talent show gave the school a whole slew of amazing performances to watch and gave students the chance to show off what they can do.

Lunchbox Fund Scores with Student Teacher Basketball Game

The Lunch Box Fund, a student group that raises funding to send school meals to students in Africa, put on a basketball fundraiser Friday night and raised $275 for the organization.

English teacher Jennifer Braunfels, the staff advisor to the Lunch Box Fund, headed up the search to find staff members and students to participate with all proceeds going to the organization.

“It was easy to recruit players for both teams. I just had to send an email to all of the staff and the students heard about it over the announcements along with word of mouth. We had about thirty kids sign up who wanted to play,” Braunfels said.

At 9:25 on Feb. 26, Edward Little High school went into a lock down drill. The students and staff patiently waited in their classrooms with the doors locked as a K-9 team from the Auburn police department searched the school for drugs.

The search was part of a months-long collaboration between the Auburn School Department and the Auburn Police Department. “The goal of the program is deterrence,” said Auburn Deputy Police Chief Jason Moen. “We do not want drugs being brought into our high school.”

EL Shut Out by St. Dom’s in Playoffs

Last time the Edward Little High School and Saint Dominic Academy hockey teams battled, the outcome wasn’t as important. However, this time around the stakes were huge. The winner of this game would progress to the Eastern Maine Title championship game, against Lewiston, and the other team would pack their skates away until next year.

On Valentine’s Day, the first time the Red Eddies and Saints met, both teams battled for four periods, until St. Dom’s buried an overtime goal for a 4-3 victory.

The second time around, the game wasn’t even close, and the Eddies lost 0-4.
