The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling new score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. (Watch the movie! So good!)

Such a fun show with great music!!!!

  1. Co-Curriculars at Casco Bay

Casco Bay High School (CBHS) offers a growing slate of co-curriculars on our campus. Our offerings currently include: Musical Theater, Drama, House Band, Math Team, the Gay-Straight-Transgendered Alliance, Ultimate Frisbee, One Act Play Competition, Yearbook, Model UN, Robotics, Science Bowl, and the Envirothon. In addition, there are numerous opportunities for students to serve their school through groups such as the Prom Committee, the Junior Journey Leadership Team, Peer Tutors, the Tech Team, the Graduation Task Force, the Student Ambassadors and the School Cabinet. Students may propose launching a new club or organization if there is sufficient student interest, and it meets existing criteria. See Mr. Pierce with questions or for a proposal form.

  1. Co-Curriculars at Deering and Portland

CBHS athletes participate in every sport that Portland schools offer, from football to sailing, from field hockey to cross-country skiing. CBHS students have the option of participating in the co-curricular programs of Portland or Deering High Schools (but not both). CBHS students declare that either Portland or Deering will be their school for co-curriculars. Once this designation is made and a student has begun at CBHS or with PPS sports, it cannot be changed. CBHS students are also eligible to participate in any co-curricular activity offered by their declared school – as long as this offering is not replicated at CBHS. CBHS students must meet the same eligibility requirements (see below) and undergo the same audition or tryout process as DHS or PHS students. CBHS students can take a bus to DHS and PHS after school each day, but they are responsible for their own transportation home once the activity has concluded.

  1. Co-Curricular Eligibility

All students who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics and activities must adhere to the district eligibility policy. This means:

  1. All athletic teams, including CBHS's ultimate frisbee team.

  2. Theatrical groups, math, music, and clubs when competing under MPA rules.

  3. Class officers and students serving in governance positions.

  4. Any other activity determined so by the School Board and Administration.

Students must be passing the minimum load of classes to be academically eligible to participate in athletic or co-curricular activities. Casco Bay High School students must take and pass five academic classes per trimester, excluding Crew. Eligibility and progress will be checked approximately once a month. When a grade check occurs while a trimester is still in progress, a student with a 2+ in a course and a HOW of at least 3 will have this grade count positively towards his/her eligibility. A schedule of check-in dates will be determined annually. A student must be academically eligible on the first day of the activity in order to begin participating. For 10th through 12th graders, eligibility for activities which begin in the fall will be determined by grades checked the previous June. Students may make up a failed course by completing an approved summer class. Such courses must be approved in advance by the Principal.

Academic Ineligibility Process

a. If a student is found to be academically ineligible, he/she will be placed on Academic Probation. The Academic Probation period is 21 calendar days. During this time the student is able to practice and be part of the team or activity. He/she cannot participate in games, scrimmages, competitions, tournaments, exhibition games, and/or other official team/club activities. The student will not be in full uniform (for athletic teams, with the exception of any required safety equipment).

b. If a student continues to be ineligible at the end of the three-week Academic Probationary period, he/she will be placed on Level 1 Academic Ineligibility for an additional three weeks. During this time the student cannot participate in any practice, games, scrimmages, competitions, tournaments, exhibition games, and/or other team/club activities. The student will not be allowed to travel with the team/club. The student is required to develop a specific plan to become academically eligible which includes a minimum of four extra hours a week and must provide a copy of the plan to the Athletic/Co-Curricular Administrator.

c. If a student remains ineligible at the end of the Level 1 Academic Ineligibility period, he/she will be placed on Level 2 Academic Ineligibility and be ineligible for the rest of the season or the duration of the activity.

Please see the PPS Co-Curricular Handbook on the district website for further details about this policy and other co-curricular rules and issues.
