Cathedral Chapel School Home
First and eighth grade students and their families participated in a beautiful Thanksgiving Mass on Sunday, November 24, 2019. The Class of 2020 wrote prayers of gratitude, and the Class of 2027 created amazing posters celebrating the season. Father Truc brought the eighth grades up to the altar during the Mass to make the experience more personal for them. Chapel's choir reminded us all how beautiful music can increase the depth of the spiritual experience of the Mass. Thank you to all who made the celebration so meaningful and joyous. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Thanks to another great idea by our incredible student council, Chapel scholars enjoyed a day of free dress on Thursday, and the local food banks will have an ample supply of Thanksgiving supplies for next week's holiday. Anyone who brought in five items for the needy got to give their uniform a rest and show support for their favoirite team. (In Chapel speak, that's a WIN-WIN!) According to our results, the Bruins will be downing the Trojans this weekend.
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!
Anabel Manriquez and Katherine Sanchez teamed up to write and then perform their TV newscaster script for the judges at the December speech league tournament. Chapel students participated in several other categories as well: dramatic, humorous, improvisation duals, and expository demonstration. We are so proud of our students and amazed at the improvement they've shown this year.
The spelling bees signal the beginning of the 2019-2020 Bee Season at Chapel. The religion, math, and geography challenges are yet to come, but if our first bee was any indication, the competitions should be extraordingary this year. When two students in the morning bees were still spelling after over 80 rounds, the judges announced a tie. The 7th grade took all of the honors in the junior high competition. Seven qualified for the event that lasted 47 rounds. In the end trophies went to Alexis Bodnar (3rd), Kailyn Song (2nd), and Cliff Connors (1st). Congratulations to all of the competitiors. God bless our hard-working students.
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!
