Today we celebrated the accomplishments of the Class of 2021 during their Graduation Mass and Awards Ceremony. These students represent academic excellence, diversity, faithfulness and love. We are honored to have known these individuals and look forward to positive impacts that they will make as they embark on the next journey of their life. Watch an encore presentation of the ceremony on our YouTube Channel. Go CCS!
In a year of extraordinary challenges for students, teachers, and parents, many schools chose not to participate in the annual academic challenge. Chapel not only participated but placed in both team events. The Chapel team, led by Captains Reese and Renae Salonga, placed 2nd in Logic and 3rd in the Super Quiz event. Aaron Kim took 2nd place honors in the individual math competition. When all the scores were tallied, Cathedral Chapel School placed 3rd overall. We could not be prouder of our students or more thankful for the parents who supported the team during months of hard work and practice. None of this would have been possible without the hard work and leadership of one incredible coach: Mr. Roman del Pozo. God bless him, the team, and our entire Chapel family!
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.
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.
