8th Graders Advance
to Regionals for
National History Day
Save the Date for
the 'Pops & Lollies'
1,500 Sandwiches for
Homeless and Hungry
Over the past several months, CCS 8th graders have been busy
preparing for History Day. A total of forty-seven projects were judged in four categories:
Exhibits, Documentaries, Performances, Papers and Websites. Eleven of the projects have advanced to regionals on March 15 at the University of Minnesota. 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.

Students in Carondelet's Destination Imagination program organized a special service project for the homeless and hungry of Minneapolis this past Friday, February 23. Students from the Upper Campus worked in shifts to make sandwiches for the homeless. The service project was organized by Carondelet's fourth grade Destination Imagination team. The team also prepared hygiene kits and care packages that were 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!
