Chapel Remembers the Real Meaning of Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving, and that is just what the Chapel family is doing once again. The fourth graders collected blankets for the homeless and donated them to Sisters Poor of Jesus Christ. Once the word spread, students from other classes joined the fourth graders and added their gifts at the Offetory during our Mass celebrating Our Lady of Guadalupe. Students have also brought in toys for children at Alexandria House. Each class was assigned an item to give to those in need. Parents helped deliver them to the different charitable organizations. Thank you to all for participating in our holiday drives. May God bless us all and keep our families safe during the Christmas break.

Everybody Wins at Chapel!

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.

The End of An Era

For 11 years, Chapel has been blessed to have had Mr. and Mrs. Morris coaching our girls in volleyball. They coached their last home game for Chapel on Tuesday, October 15th. One would be hard pressed to find anyone on campus who remembers the girls' volleyball program without this amazing pair at the helm. Teaching the basics of the sport and instilling a strong work ethic was just the beginning. Since 2008 the Morriises have included character building as a pillar of their program. They have stressed the values of teamwork, trust, responsibility, integrity, and kindness. Following the game on Tuesday, Mrs. Morris hosted an extraordinary celebration that focused on the 8th graders. Her words were inspirational. Fans, parents, and teachers were brought to tears. The Morrises will be missed but always remembered with gratitude and admiration.
