Fifth and sixth graders deepened their understanding of Ancient Egypt on Monday, May 21st. They explored the King Tut exhibit and saw the IMAX movie about the antiquities of Egypt. Thank you Mrs. Aguirre and Mr. Pham for planning a day at the California Science Center. None of this would be possible without our parent chaperones, so thank you Parents.

Chapel made history at the Las Colinas Speech Competition on May 19, 2016. For the first time ever, a 5th grader took first place in a major event: Congratulations Elizabeth Lo; she earned a 1st place in Theme. Our only 8th grade member this year, Christina Arguello, took home more awards from one event than any student in the history of our team. She earned a 1st in Dramatic, 2nd in Humorous, a Gold in Versatility, and a Perseverance Award for competing in over six different categories at events over the year. Maya Bryant (7th) earned a Bronze Versatility Award and also earned a Perseverance Award; she competed in five different categories over the course of this year's speech season. Adrianna Brady also earned a Perseverance Award. Patrick Holloway (6th) was awarded a certificate for his performance in Humorous. Congratulations to our incredible team and one great, big "THANK YOU!" you to our amazing speech coach, Mrs. Amber Aguirre.
Chapel is a family, and although our students graduate and leave our halls, they do not leave our thoughts or hearts. Hearing of the success of our former students is extremely rewarding. The news from Alice Cotti of Notre Dame High School this week was particularly exciting. Ally will be giving the speech at her high school graduation; she's also been accepted to MIT. In addition to the great news about Ally, the letter said, "Thank you for the incredible job you do of educating young people who join our community and grow in heart and mind. We love our Cathedral Chapel students and would love to have more of them! Please keep sending them our way. With much love and appreciation for all you do, Alice Cotti, Notre Dame HS (Sherman Oaks)." Thank you, Ms. Cotti; God bless NDHS, and God bless Ally Hong and her family.

Chapel's Dire Wolves defeated 23 L.A. Catholic Schools at the 2018 Quiz Bowl on Saturday, February 3rd. Last year's Chapel decathletes brought home gold in all three jewels of the decathlon Triple Crown, so that team was a hard act to follow. With only one returning member, only two eighth-graders, the largest Quiz Bowl ever, and the most difficult study guide in the history of the competition, Chapel took first in both team events: Logic and Super Quiz. The team earned honors in seven of the eight individual events. When all the scores were added up, Chapel was awarded the championship trophy. It was an impressive win because our ten did it with hard work, honor, team work. and style. The team took inspiration from five members of last year's team and other grads who came to cheer the decathletes on. This was the 16th Annual Cathedral High Quiz Bowl. It is the 12th time Chapel has brought home the Gold.
