Spring is here and it brought fresh, new energy to our building. On April 4th, we have an amazing opportunity for our students to SHARE, CELEBRATE, and EMBRACE the diversity within our school and community. This opportunity is called the Unity in Diversity Conference. There will be a number of great speakers, performances, workshops, and exhibits that shed a light on who we are. If you would like to volunteer on that day, please call Ms. Tylka at 612-545-9700. We are always in need of parent support. Also, we look forward to your continued participation in our Parents Teachers Association (PTA). The next meeting will be held on April 10th at 7:00pm in our auditorium. Light refreshments will be served. You can bring your student or small children with you.
Finally, please remember that you can always check your child’s grades on PowerSchool. If you need help with logging in to PowerSchool, you can reach out to Jessica Martinez at 612-545-9773.
CWSP has the unique opportunity to watch our students grow and develop as professionals each week.
We wanted to highlight some of the incredible work our students do. Sophomore, Gissell works at Nelson, a graphic design group in Downtown Minneapolis. Each day, she checks in with the receptionist, goes to her work space and logs into her computer. After checking her email, she will meet up with her supervisor to review her check list for the day. At first glance, things seem pretty typical. The catch is, however, that Gissell’s supervisor works in Philadelphia, PA. Gissell and Laura communicate via Skype and other online platforms each Thursday. Working long-distance is a growing trend, and Gissell is taking full advantage of the opportunity to work in this capacity!
Laura boasts that Gissell is excelling at work that many entry-level adult employees struggle with. She is impressed each day with Gissell’s attention to detail and professionalism. Gissell performs various critical functions for Laura’s team, such as verifying client contact information and researching partner companies and trends in graphic design. Gissell’s story is a reminder to all Cristo Rey interns that the work you do at your companies make a real impact. You are serving the greater community and building professional skills that will in turn serve you for years and years to come. Thanks for all your hard work, Pumas!
Our boys’ basketball varsity team finished at the regular season champions of the Twin Cities Athletic Conference with a record of
21-8, which was the best record in school history. boys were ranked as high as #14 in Minnesota’s Class A boys’ basketball. The boys also advanced further in the MSHSL playoffs than any team in school history, making it to the section semifinals at Anoka-Ramsey College in Coon Rapids. The boys fell to top-ranked Minneapolis North High School in that game, but they are proud of their accomplishments this season.
Our girls’ basketball team also recently completed its season. The highlight for the girls was finishing in third-place in the TCAC Tournament, held at Cristo Rey, in February. The girls’ season ended with a section playoff loss to Heritage Christian Academy, one of the top teams in the state.
Our First Robotics team was busy finishing their robot in preparation for the state competition that is quickly approaching in the spring. There are more than 20 Cristo Rey students involved in the project. The students are excited by the prospect of seeing what their robot can due in competition.
Our performing arts students begin auditions and rehearsals for this year’s musical, “High School Musical.” There are over 20 students participating in the production and they are excited to perform for the Cristo Rey community during the last weekend in April.
