Santa waits for you.

The Coupeville High School Class of 2021 is hosting a fundraiser, featuring socially-distanced photos with Old Saint Nick.

The event is set for Saturday, December 12 from 10-2 at Bell’s Farm (892 W. Beach Road), and cost is $10 for three digital photos which will be emailed to you.

Patrons are asked to park in the grass area behind the farm’s honesty stand.

You can pay with cash or check (made out to CHS Parents), delivered in an envelope with your name, phone number, and email address written on the front.

Since we’re living in the Age of Coronavirus, extra care will be taken to assure Santa, portrayed by Coupeville gridiron legend Paul Messner, is properly socially-distanced.

While he won’t be sitting with people in the photo as in years past, he will be clearly visible.

“In order to keep Santa safe this year we had to get a little creative,” Wolf mom Deb Smith said. “It’s a way to carry on a Christmas tradition while ensuring safety.”

Participants are asked to wear a mask until they have been seated for their picture, and if you’ve brought your pet for the photo, they need to be leashed.

“We want to keep everyone safe, and get you in and out quickly,” Smith said.

“Take some time to visit the Bells Farm honesty stand and grab some goodies for your holiday table or gifts for family and friends,” she added.

“We’re very fortunate to have their wonderful family help make this possible this year!”

They’re giving back in multiple ways.

Having scrambled to pull off a successful virtual event during the Age of Coronavirus, organizers of Race the Reserve announced Tuesday they will award a scholarship to a graduating Coupeville student.

The $500 needs-based grant is in addition to the $9,500 the annual event brought in for the CHS Class of 2021.

Students applying for the scholarship have until April 30, 2021 to submit an essay and informational cover sheet.

Those applying will be asked two questions:

**Describe a time where you had to overcome adversity or a challenge in your life.

**Why do you feel the scholarship should be awarded to you?

The scholarship will be given to a graduating senior who has been accepted and will be attending a two-year or four-year college or university, technical school, or vocational school.

All essays will be sent anonymously to an independent panel from the community, with no affiliation to the school, who will read and determine the recipient.

Panel members will have no idea who wrote the essays, as they will only carry a number, and not a name.

The winner will be announced during the traditional CHS senior awards night, with a check made out to the recipient’s future school.

For more information or any questions, students should contact the school counselor.

Prepare your taste buds.

With no football games or volleyball matches right now, the Coupeville High School Class of 2021 is unable to raise money from concession stand sales.

So, the parents and students have found a different way to get meat into the mouths of Wolf fans, while generating money for the graduation night party fund.

The Class of 2021 is hosting a BBQ at Mickey Clark Field Saturday, Nov. 21 – with all the hot dogs and hamburgers you can buy.

They’ll be selling Wolf Pack Meals at the concession stand, which sits at the entrance to the field on S. Main, and the event runs from 12-4.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

They made it work, and it paid off.

Despite not being allowed to hold an in-person event, thanks to the ongoing pandemic, the parents behind the annual Race the Reserve fundraiser still brought their race home.

Switching to a virtual format, organizers were able to raise $9,500 after expenses.

That money will go towards a safe, alcohol and drug free graduation party for the Coupeville High School Class of 2021 next spring.

Race the Reserve, which normally happens in August, brings runners to Ebey’s Prairie, where they can choose between competing in a 5K, 10K, half marathon, and full marathon.

While runners competed on their own this time, they were still gifted a race bib, T-shirt, medal, and swag bag as in years past.

In addition to the $9,500, Race the Reserve also raised money for a scholarship.

The details and dollar amount of that award will be announced later this month, said race organizer Deb Smith.

Deb Smith is so nice, she’s giving you extra time.

The force of nature Wolf mom behind this year’s Race the Reserve has stretched the deadline for registration until 11:59 PM, Sunday, Oct. 11.

The popular running event, which normally offers a marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K, all stretched across Ebey’s Prairie, will be a virtual event this time.

With an ongoing pandemic, organizers were unable to get permits for an in-person race.

Race the Reserve is the biggest fundraiser for Coupeville’s Class of 2021, though, so Smith and Co. are plowing ahead as best as possible.

Step up and pay your $45 to be an official participant in this once-in-a-lifetime (we hope) virtual event, and you’ll still get a race bib, T-shirt, medal, and swag bag as in years past.

All proceeds go towards a safe, drug and alcohol-free graduation night party next spring.
