Cathedral Chapel School Home
Student council, student ambassadors, smiling students and proud parents showed everyone at the Larchmont Fair on Sunday, October 27th, exactly what our school is all about. Chapel is the Diamond of the Diocese. We cherish our diversity; we believe in God; we value hard work, and we strive for our students to become faithful Christians, responsible citizens, life-long learners, integrated individuals, and effective communicators. On Sunday our booth was filled with members of our school family celebrating our school and honoring its mission. Thanks to all who helped get our message out on this busy weekend that included a speech tournament and sports' playoffs. Gooooo Chapel!
They are quite pretty too! Yes, I am talking about our girls' volleyball team. They were perfect in league play this year and started the playoffs by beating Sacred Heart 25-6 and 25-16 on Sunday, October 27th. For fans who missed the first game, here are the stats: Kills- Althea 13, Yva 5 and Anabel 2; Assists-Izzy 12; Aces-Izzy 5, Yva and Althea 4; Digs- Jordan and Megan 3. The She Wolves are looking forward to next Saturday at 10:00 when they play St. Raymond at La Salle High School. I'm sure they would appreciate your support at their game. Chapel couldn't be prouder of them or more appreciative of their coaches, the Magnificent Morrises!
Friday October 19th, the faculty spent at the de Paul Retreat Center in Montebello. The day was spent in prayer and honest reflection. One of the many benefits of the day was the opportunity to share the gratitude felt for the blessings of working at a place like CCS where we can surround ourself with honorable, hard-working, creative, supportive, dynamic people who are dedicated to our Chapel students. Thank you, Father Truc, for joining us and celebrating Mass with us at the end of the day. We are so very blessed at CCS.
Whether it's getting ready for their time in the science lab or the discussions after, the first graders love to experiment and learn new things in science. The science lab is a favorite for them. Their smiles are proof. Learning can be fun. It certainly is for the Class of 2027!
The first speech tournament of the school year was held on Saturday, October 26th at Cathedral Chapel School. Eighth graders Kennedy Kilpatrick (Story-telling) and Aliyah Hampton (Sight-reading) took third place trophies in their respective categories. Students had been hard at work practicing their pieces for weeks. The competition was stiff, but Chapel was so proud of every one of our members. Their improvement in oral-speaking skill has been amazing. The team is taking a week off and then will begin getting ready for the December tournament at St. Bernard. Thank you to Amber Aguirre and Mr. Danny Gonzalez for coming back to help make the day a great success. Thank you too to Mr. Ponce, Ms. Seanez, and Ms. da Silva for giving up their Saturday to help run the tournament. God bless our parent volunteers as well. We are so lucky to have such invested, helpful parents.
Chapel Ambassadors spent their Saturday volunteering at the annual silent auction at the Wilshire Country Club. The event raises money for homeless women and children. Chapel Ambassadors are an elite group of students who must earn the right to represent our school for tours, festivals, tournaments, and worthy events. They must be willing to dedicate themselves to role model behavior and superior oral-speaking skills. Thank you Patrick, Aliyah, Joan, Andrew, and Annie!
