Cathedral Chapel Places Third Overall in Los Angeles Academic Junior High Decathlon

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!

Mars Landing Watch Party Inspires Students

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.

Chapel Steps Up in Time of Crisis!

Chapel's amazing student council, under the able leadership of Mr. Roman del Pozo, held a very successful drive-thru, food drive on Saturday, November 20th. Thanks to the generosity of our school families, on Monday Blessed Sacrament Food Pantry will be receiving 839 cans of food (soups, stews, fruits, meats, tuna, veggies, and more). Without a doubt this was a team effort. Student council members planned the event and announced the drive in each Zoom classroom; Mr. Ponce prepared all the boxes; Miss Kipp texted updates to inspire donations, and Mr. del Pozo, assisted by his amazing wife Iris and incredible daughters Jordan, Reagan, and Kennedy, manned the drive from 9:00 to 12:00. Mr. Ponce is coming in on his vacation to make the delivery to the food pantry. A special thank-you goes out to all who participated in this worthwhile project but especially to the Castaneda, Norword, and Reyes families for their extraordinary generosity. God bless CCS, and Happy Thanksgiving from Cathedral Chapel School.

Chapel Zoooooooms into the New School Year

On Thursday evening, August 13th, Back to School Night was for the first time ever Zoomed into our parents' homes. Teachers have been preparing their Google Classrooms and becoming familiar with the new resources so that next Wednesday we can WOW our students with exciting lessons. We are praying our hearts out that we can safely return to in person learning sooner rather than later. In the meantime, Chapel is commited to delivering the best online education possible. Book pick up is set for Monday, August 17th, and students are already posting summer reading presentations. We appreciate our parents and students and look forward to a year of effective, exciting, estraordinary learning. .God bless CCS!

Summer? What Summer?

Chapel's Covid-19 Response Task Force has been working all summer to plan for safe, effective, robust distance learning with the ultimate goal of safely reopening the school as soon as possible in accordance with State Department of Health guidelines. (Pray for 14-consecutive days of declining Covid-19 numbers.) In order to be ready for a safe reopening, we've designed a variety of flexible plans that can be adjusted to quickly respond to the course of the pandemic-keeping in mind that the safety of our CCS family comes first. Those plans include, but are not limited to, redesigning classroom configurations to allow for proper social distancing, purchasing face shields for every student, installing additional hand sanitizers throughout the facility, planning for temperature scanning and staggered drop offs and pickups, purchasing room sanitizers, as well as subscriptions to top-rated, student-friendly learning sites that will engage our students and ensure they meet Common Core Standards and our Schoolwide Student Learning Expectations.
We are adding Freckle and CatholicBrain to our repetoire of amazing resources. Junior high students will be using SadlierConnect for delivery of vocabulary lessons. Teachers have been attending workshops and seminars to hone their tech skills and enable them to provide our students with the best education possible, whether at a distance, in cohorts, or all in person. We pray for a return to normalcy, but in the interim, we are prepared to work with our families to provide the absolute best education possible. God Bless our incredible Chapel family!
