On Wednesday, October 14, 2015, the sophomores ditched their backpacks and books and replaced them with dodge balls and frisbees for the second annual Sophomore Spirit Day.
The Chaminade Flyers recently sprang into action to help men all over Long Island who are in need of traditional business attire. Under the moderation of Mr. Salvatore Garofalo ’08, Sophomore GSO teamed with up the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to collect over 50 baskets, which translated into 30 full bags, of gently used suit jackets, blazers, shirts, ties, pants, belts, and shoes. From Thursday, October 8 to Wednesday, October 14, students delivered their donations to the Darby Auditorium lobby before the beginning of homeroom.
Chaminade High School’s incredibly talented string orchestra had a unique opportunity on Friday, October 9. During a morning assembly, Chaminade’s string orchestra met with fellow musicians from the University of Dayton Orchestra in Darby Auditorium. There was not much time for extended greetings as the two groups performed a short concert together for Chaminade’s freshman and senior classes.
Flying to Those in Need: Sophomore GSO is Sponsoring a Clothing Drive
EBy Nicholas Plante
Every day of the school year, over 1700 Chaminade students present themselves neatly in jacket and tie. Unfortunately, every man on Long Island cannot afford proper business attire. A fair amount of Long Islanders struggle to get the right clothes to wear for occasions such as job interviews. Therefore, Sophomore GSO is sponsoring a clothing drive in accordance with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul on Long Island.
From Thursday, October 8 to Wednesday, October 14, all students are invited to deliver suit jackets, blazers, shirts, ties, pants, belts, and shoes to the Darby Auditorium lobby before the beginning of homeroom. Donations should include shirts that no longer fit, pants that have been outgrown, ties that have been replaced by new styles, and other business clothing that are simply sitting in closets.
The clothing drive will culminate with a presentation during Sophomore Spirit Day, which is Wednesday, October 14.
Support the Long Island community and bring in some school clothing that you no longer wear!
