3 Up

The End of the Beginning…

The class of 2018 will bring their journey at Chaminade to a close this Sunday.

First, students, faculty, and family will take part in the Baccalaureate Mass at 9 a.m.

This will take place in the Tilles Center on the campus of C.W. Post, which will also host the Commencement Exercises at 4 p.m.

When I’m 64…

On Thursday, hundreds of students will have the chance to bring their grandparents to school for a student body Mass in the AAC.

This special Mass is celebrated each year sometime during the spring and has become a favorite annual event among many students.

Following Mass, students will enjoy lunch with their grandparents.

After Hours…

With over 50 activities for students to explore after school, there is something for everyone at Chaminade.

Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors will be awarded for their participation in these various after-school clubs on Wednesday morning during an assembly. Whether it be Social Studies Club or GSO, moderators will recognize students for their strong commitment and interest in all activities.

Sports Teams Hit a Home Run

Yesterday, spring athletes were recognized for their hard work this season. Each of the spring sports teams – baseball, crew, golf, lacrosse, tennis, and track & field – were honored during an assembly before first period.

Then, students and their parents returned to campus on Thursday evening to watch a video, produced by Element Films, which recapped and celebrated the season.

Coaches also addressed the groups to recount each team’s success this spring. With the crew and lacrosse teams winning state championships, the golf team carding an undefeated record, and much more, there was a lot to celebrate.

Varsity Lacrosse Team Nets Title

Last Tuesday, the varsity lacrosse team made history when they defeated St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute of Buffalo.

Having already bested St. Anthony’s to earn the league crown, their spectacular performance earned them the CHSAA Class AA State Championship title, as covered by Newsday.

Talking Heads

Last weekend, the speech and debate team competed in the Catholic Forensic League National Tournament in Washington, D.C. Team president John Michael Magloire ‘18 advanced to the quarterfinals, while both Rory Mahon ‘18 and Aidan Fitzgerald ‘18 placed high at both CFLs and in National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) qualifying tournaments.

The team will be traveling to Fort Lauderdale, Florida later this month to compete at the NSDA competition. More about the speech and debate team’s success is detailed here.
