We are inching closer to the end of 2017. This month is a season of special thanks to God and to those around us who love and support us. We are grateful for all that you do to ensure that every student comes to school on time, has all of their supplies, and are ready to learn. Our student success is due in part to all of the work that you do at home. Thank You.
We will be having a family carnival called the Winter Wonderland. This event is for the entire family and will be held on December 16th from 1:00—3:00 PM There will be a bouncy house, snacks, face painting, balloons, Santa Claus, and games for little ones. Free gifts will be given to all children from babies to 12 year olds. This will be a blessed time for all of us.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Daniela Zavala at 612-545-9721 or email her at
Did you know that your student receives a grade for CWSP? The grade is dependent on the following factors:

Timecards: students are required to submit a timecard each day they work. The time-cards help us track the hours they have worked as well as receive feedback from students and their supervisors. Supervisors will give students an overall rating each day on the timecard. It is important for students to turn their timecards in on time.

Attendance: Students are allowed one sick day per semester. It is important that they make up any time they miss beyond their allotted sick day each semester. They also need to consistently arrive and depart on time each work day. Not doing so will cause their GPA to drop.

Evaluations: Supervisors will submit a mid-year and year-end evaluation for each student. Students will be given an overall rating by their supervisor on each evaluation. The overall rating is based on the student meeting the expectations of the work site, as well as those set by Cristo Rey.

Please let us know if you have any questions about how a grade was determined or how a student can improve their grade!
Activities News
The fall activities season was the most successful in the history of the Cristo Rey activities program. The girls volleyball team was able to earn a season record of 6-12, which is the best record to date for the program. The girls soccer team finished it's season with a record of 12-6. The boys soccer team finished the season with a record of 17-2, which was the best in program history. The boys were ranked in the state's Top 15 rankings for much of the season, and also captured the conference championship by going undefeated in conference play. The boys advanced to the Section 3A finals, where the Pumas faced the Cadets of St. Thomas Academy. While the boys' season was ended by that game, the team was the first in school history in any sport to advance to a section final game.

In addition to the 144 students who participated in fall athletics, the choir program has 16 members right now, making for 160 students taking part in some activity this fall. That means 33% of our Pumas are already involved in a co-curricular activity!

The winter sports season will begin with the opening of girls basketball practice on Mon-day, November 13, while the boys will start one week later, on November 21.

Also, our Robotics program will be getting into full swing, and the tryouts for this year's musical, "Little Shop of Horrors" will begin the week of January 15.

Our student body is being challenged to cre-ate both a school song and cheer. We are excited about the cool creations that will come from our students.
