A Day of Remembrance
Students will enjoy a three-day weekend as we celebrate those who served our country in the military. On Monday at 9 a.m., members of Chaminade’s Pep Band, Flyers Band, and Crimson Band will perform in the annual Mineola Memorial Day Parade. They will play “God Bless America” and the “Marches of the Armed Forces” medley.
On Deck for the Championship
The varsity baseball team is preparing for their championship series next week. The first game will be played on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Hofstra University, followed by a second and third game (if necessary) on Monday.
These games follow the team’s victory over Kellenberg, which secured them third place in the CHSAA with an 11-6 record.
Shooting for a State Title
The varsity lacrosse team won the NSCHSAA championship title last week, but they’re not finished yet.
The team is taking on St. Anthony’s this evening at 5 p.m. at Mitchel Athletic Complex, looking to secure the CHSAA state final championship.
A Great Leap Forward in STEM
Last Sunday, Chaminade’s president, Bro. Thomas Cleary, S.M. ’81, was joined by members of the Chaminade Family as they cut the ribbon on a new, revolutionary 34,000 square-foot building on campus. Officially named the Dolan Family Science, Technology, and Research Center, the structure houses several cutting-edge tools for students to learn with, including seven labs, computerized lab probes, 3D printers, a Foucault pendulum, Anatomage tables, and much more. Chaminade worked closely with Mancini Duffy to design a space that encouraged innovation, research, and collaboration. Four years later, the modern design, once viewed simply as renderings, has come to life and promises to introduce endless possibilities for future generations of Flyers.
Marian Prayer Service
On Monday morning, members of Sodality gathered in Our Lady’s Courtyard (others watched via an ETV live broadcast) to honor Mary during a special prayer service.
Greeted by beautiful spring weather, the students spent their mornings praying and revering the Blessed Mother.
Mr. Vincent Jeffrey ’04 reflected on the importance of Mary in his life, and other students helped lead the group in prayer.
A Day Outside of the Classroom
Juniors took a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey on Wednesday. The trip allowed juniors to relieve their stresses by spending time with their classmates at an exciting theme park.
Members of the junior class expressed appreciation for the fun, yet tiresome day they had upon returning to campus late Wednesday night.
