Cathedral Chapel students and teachers suspended their normal schoolday schedule on Thursday and joined a Mars Landing Zoom Watch Party instead. Students were able to witness and discuss history in real time as Perseverance approached and then successfully touched down on the red planet. It was an incredible afternoon of learning filled with suspense and wonder. Students cheered as the mask-wearing engineers and incredibly diverse team celebrated their years of hard work and sacrifice. We are blessed at CCS to be able to share such important events as a Christian family of life-long learners.
We are excited to invite you to our virtual Open House, hosted by the CCS Student Council, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Meet the administration, faculty and staff. Please click on the link in our calendar to access the webinar. The password is CCS.
Chapel's amazing student council, under the able leadership of Mr. Roman del Pozo, held a very successful drive-thru, food drive on Saturday, November 20th. Thanks to the generosity of our school families, on Monday Blessed Sacrament Food Pantry will be receiving 839 cans of food (soups, stews, fruits, meats, tuna, veggies, and more). Without a doubt this was a team effort. Student council members planned the event and announced the drive in each Zoom classroom; Mr. Ponce prepared all the boxes; Miss Kipp texted updates to inspire donations, and Mr. del Pozo, assisted by his amazing wife Iris and incredible daughters Jordan, Reagan, and Kennedy, manned the drive from 9:00 to 12:00. Mr. Ponce is coming in on his vacation to make the delivery to the food pantry. A special thank-you goes out to all who participated in this worthwhile project but especially to the Castaneda, Norword, and Reyes families for their extraordinary generosity. God bless CCS, and Happy Thanksgiving from Cathedral Chapel School.
Sophia Reyes was given the honor of crowning the Virgin Mary at the Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral on Monday morning. She then led the congregation in the praying of the Rosary. She was the epitome of grace and beauty as she accompanied Archbishop Gomez in the inspirational service. We are so proud of Sophia. God bless her and her family.
Back in the day, meaning last year and each year before this , our kinders would visit the 8th graders near the end of the year to wish them well as they closed in on their last days as Chapel students. Often the classes would share little mementos of their time together in school families. There was no way we could let that time-honored tradition be skipped due to a pandemic. On Thursday, the last day of Spirit Week, the Class of 2029 and the Class of 2020 made and decorated heartfelt cards for each other and shared them in Zoom rooms. It was sweet, funny, precious, and loving. I think I heard and saw some tears here and there. Thank you Miss Seanez and Ms. Cendejas for making this such a wonderful and memorable experience. Thank you too, Students, for creating such magic with your beautiful cards and warm words. God bless our kinder parents for making the experience work so well.
Showing their great, school spirit, our fourth graders joined their classes on Wednesday, May 15th, all dressed up as chefs. On Monday students were encouraged to attend class in their pajamas, and yesterday was color day. Each class wore a different color of the rainbow, and then some. We may be away for our campus, but we can still show our school and class spirit. God bless our students.
