Students Stun Faculty During Spirit Day Competitions!

The faculty will need all four days of the long Memorial Day holiday-maybe more- to bounce back from their disastrous defeats in basketball and the balloon toss on Friday, May 24th. If not for MVP Roman del Pozo and his heroics in kickball, the faculty would not have had a single win during the day. Congrats students and thank you Mr. Pham, Mr. D, and Mr. Val for making what the 8th graders now refer to as, "The best Spirit Day ever!"

2014 Chapel Grad off to MIT after Giving NDHS Graduation Speech!

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.

Parents Absolutely Astound Faculty and Staff for Teacher Appreciation!

The parents definitely outdid themselves this year in showing their appreciation to Chapel teachers and staff. Every day the faculty room was filled with delicious treats and coffees and juices. In addition to crescents, donuts, cookies, muffins, bagels, cake, fresh fruits, and sandwiches, the parents regaled teachers with a luncheon buffet on Wednesday that could rival any Hilton or Marriott. If that wasn't enough, we received beautiful, generous thank you cards and notes. We were treated like kings and queens each day. Thank you parents. It is our honor to partner with you in educating your children.
