8th Graders Prepare
for State History Day
CCS Theater Department
1,000 Sandwiches for
Homeless and Hungry
Over the past several months, CCS 8th graders have been busy
preparing for History Day. On Thursday, February 22, a total of forty-seven projects will be judged in four categories:
Exhibits, Documentaries, Performances, Papers and Websites. Several of the
projects will move onto regionals, followed by a state-wide competition. Over
the past several months, students have conducted research that included visiting
museums, libraries and universities; conducting personal interviews with
professors, scholars and field experts. The project is overseen by
Carondelet history teacher, Alex Rome and ELA teacher, Vicki Paine.
Carondelet's Theater Academy has announced this year's Spring musical, Cinderella! Auditions began in early February, following mandatory pre-audition workshops. The middle school musical, directed by Heather Dorsey, is open to Carondelet students in grades
6-8 and all students are guaranteed a part! Performances run May 10-12 at the Academy of Holy Angels. Click here for more information.
Students in Carondelet's Destination Imagination program are organizing a special service project for the homeless and hungry of Minneapolis. On Friday, February 23 students from the Upper Campus will work in shifts to make sandwiches for the homeless. The service project is organized by Carondelet's fourth grade Destination Imagination team. The team also prepared hygiene kits and care packages that will be delivered with the sandwiches by Allan Law, aka "The Sandwich Man" a local good samaritan who started the non-profit 363 Days Food Program. The project is a great example of service and leadership of our CCS students. Giving Matters!
