Today our flag was flown at half mast as students showed their empathy for the victims of 9/11. They also showed their generosity for the privilege of wearing our country's colors by bringing in three cans each to help the needy. When all the items were counted, we were able to send the food pantry 650 cans of food. This is the third day in a row that our student council has planned and beautifully executed a wonderfully successful event to build our school community and foster our Christian values. Thank you for your hard work and enthusiasm.
Chapel students celebrated Grandparents Day by inviting theirs for lunch on Monday, September 9th. Student council outdid themselves with beautiful posters, balloons, decorations, and picture frames for the celebration. It was a wonderful afternoon filled with smiles and laughter and love.
For over a decade now, Chapel has been blessed to have the girl's "A" volleyball team coached by Mr. and Mrs. Morris. This incredible couple has not only taught our students the fundamentals of the sport but perhaps even more importantly instilled in them the importance of dedication and sportsmanship. It is hard to imagine that this will be their last year heading our program. Their daughter Althea will move onto high school next fall. Practice has already begun and Chapel seem destined for an incredible year.
Have you ever seen 100 million dollars worth of classic, luxury cars in one place? The class of 2020 has! Students visited the Nethercutt Museum in Sylmar and saw a huge selection of beautiful luxury cars, but that was just the appetizer. Then they were treated to a private tour of the "functional fine art" of the Nethercutt estate. From vehicles to rare musical instruments to antique hood instruments and Hummels, the students toured four solid floors of exquisite antiques exhibited on marble floors under glittering chandeliers and amazing machines that mimic entire orchestras. The day was capped off with a delicious Tinder pizza lunch at San Fernando Mission Park. Thank you to Mrs. Veronica Manriquez for serving as a chaperone for the day.
Today students are getting to know all about each other and start bonding as members of school families. This Friday, and for the first time this year, the whole school will attend Mass together, so our student council organized a an ice-breaker activity that includes delicious refreshments. Our 8th graders learn responsibility as they serve as the heads of each family.
Students are looking extra sharp today. Why? To prove that Chapel Scholars aren't just the smartest but the best looking too.
