Congrats to Carondelet Middle School teacher Josh Nutter who was awarded the 2014 K-8 "Teacher of the Year" by the Minnesota Independent

independent school community, and serves as the only state-wide awards event
for nonpublic education. Mr. Nutter was nominated for his exemplary
contributions to education modeled both within and beyond the classroom. The School Forum's 2014 Awards Celebration was held May 13 at the University of St. Thomas. Please join us in congratulating Mr. Nutter on this well-deserved recognition.

What better way to kick off summer than a collection for our friends at Waite House! Last month, students and faculty were invited to bring in sand pails and shovels, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, flash cards, kid-friendly snacks, playing cards, play-doh and other smaller items for summer fun packs. Carondelet's fourth graders helped assemble the fun packs for the June delivery to Waite House. A special thank you to all those who contributed to this special service project including Libby Sullivan who organized this year's special Waite House collections!
Thank you to the countless donors and volunteers who helped build Carondelet's new Upper Campus playground. The crew worked over two weekends in June removing the old equipment and constructing the new play structure, designed by Landscape Structures. The Saints Men's Club kicked-off the initiative last fall by soliciting donations and volunteers. Donations from Carondelet's Go-Go "Fund-a-Need" this spring were also a major source of funding for this special project. The playground officially opened on June 26 following a blessing by Fr. Dale Korogi. The playground has already been given the "thumbs up" from students and neighbors. Thank you to everyone who generously contributed to this community build. Your Giving Matters!
