A-M-A-Z-I-N-G: One of the Spelling Bees Went Over 80 Rounds!

The spelling bees signal the beginning of the 2019-2020 Bee Season at Chapel. The religion, math, and geography challenges are yet to come, but if our first bee was any indication, the competitions should be extraordingary this year. When two students in the morning bees were still spelling after over 80 rounds, the judges announced a tie. The 7th grade took all of the honors in the junior high competition. Seven qualified for the event that lasted 47 rounds. In the end trophies went to Alexis Bodnar (3rd), Kailyn Song (2nd), and Cliff Connors (1st). Congratulations to all of the competitiors.

Kennedy Kilpatrick and Aliyah Hampton Take Trophies at Speech Tournament

The first speech tournament of the school year was held on Saturday, October 26th at Cathedral Chapel School. Eighth graders Kennedy Kilpatrick (Story-telling) and Aliyah Hampton (Sight-reading) took third place trophies in their respective categories. Students had been hard at work practicing their pieces for weeks. The competition was stiff, but Chapel was so proud of every one of our members. Their improvement in oral-speaking skill has been amazing. The team is taking a week off and then will begin getting ready for the December tournament at St. Bernard. Thank you to Amber Aguirre and Mr. Danny Gonzalez for coming back to help make the day a great success. Thank you too to Mr. Ponce, Ms. Seanez, and Ms. da Silva for giving up their Saturday to help run the tournament. God bless our parent volunteers as well. We are so lucky to have such invested, helpful parents.

Thank You for Your Service, Izzy!

If you were fortunate enough to be at the Chapel v. Holy Spirit home game on Tuesday, October 8th, then you might understand why some are now calling 8th grader Izzabella Rivera "The Machine." Since I was lucky enough to see the game in person, I can tell you. She went up to serve when the game was pretty close, and she served up at least twelve unanswered points. There was one place no one wanted to be during her servince....the other side of the net. She was accurate and strong-her serves were simply too hot to handle. The final score of the first game was 25-8 and the second resulted in another win for Chapel 25-11.

Nethercutt Museum Field Trip a Huge Hit with 8th Graders

Have you ever seen 100 million dollars worth of classic, luxury cars in one place? The class of 2020 has! Students visited the Nethercutt Museum in Sylmar and saw a huge selection of beautiful luxury cars, but that was just the appetizer. Then they were treated to a private tour of the "functional fine art" of the Nethercutt estate. From vehicles to rare musical instruments to antique hood instruments and Hummels, the students toured four solid floors of exquisite antiques exhibited on marble floors under glittering chandeliers and amazing machines that mimic entire orchestras. The day was capped off with a delicious Tinder pizza lunch at San Fernando Mission Park. Thank you to Mrs. Veronica Manriquez for serving as a chaperone for the day.
