"It was never a matter of IF would do service, but just a question of WHAT TYPE of service I would do," says this year's 2017 recipient of the Soroptimist's Violet Richardson Award for Service, freshman Marissa E. '20. Although only a freshman, Marissa has made a considerable effort to make a difference in the community she lives in.

Marissa was honored May 3, at the monthly Soroptimist meeting and dinner for the local Walnut Creek Chapter. She was selected this year's recipient for her commitment to the East Bay Sea Serpents Swim Team, a branch of Special Olympics, working with children and adults who have special needs ranging from Autism, Down Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, and traumatic brain injuries.

Eight Carondelet Students Honored for Their Outstanding Community Service

Concord, Calif. (April 11, 2017) -- On April 6, Carondelet was pleased to honor eight amazing students with Jefferson Awards for their outstanding community service. Jefferson Awards is a national organization which supports, encourages, and recognizes high school students who perform extraordinary service.

Each year, Carondelet allows faculty, staff, students and parents to nominate a member of the community who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to service. This year, eight impressive students were selected to receive the awards, and they truly live out the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph to "serve the dear neighbor."

"The Jefferson Awards allow us to celebrate the vibrant culture of service at Carondelet. Our students have done amazing work and demonstrated such passion for serving the dear neighbor. We are extremely proud of all they have accomplished." said Carondelet Principal Kevin Cushing.

Students in Mrs. Mammola's French 3 Honors course competed to impress a group of judges made up of Carondelet faculty and administration with tasty dishes representing French-speaking countries from around the world. This contest was part of a semester-long project in which the students have been assigned specific countries from the French-speaking world and have been asked to research them in-depth. Two dozen students prepared 12 unique dishes to represent their countries and gave oral presentations in French to the judges, which described and explained the cultural significance of the dishes.

"The most exciting part of the competition was the aftermath, when everyone was trying each other's foods and talking about the struggles they faced while preparing their dishes. I also enjoyed the freedom given to us by our teacher and the kitchen staff to make whatever dishes we wanted," said Kasey M. '19, winner of "Best Dish Overall" along with her partner, Grace C. '18, for their fabulous fondue dish representing Switzerland.

As we have announced at numerous parent meetings and parent educational gatherings, De La Salle and Carondelet have been working on a new bell schedule since 2008.

A committee was formed with representatives from both campuses to research and recommend a bell schedule that would be more effective in terms of providing greater time for non-academic events and programming built into the daily schedule. This recommendation was received last year, and based on further input, was modified. The collaborative efforts from both the De La Salle and Carondelet faculty and staff are greatly appreciated, as modifying the daily schedule at schools, especially schools that share students as we do, can be problematic.

Click here to download the new bell schedule.

We feel that this bell schedule provides the following advantages:

A more consistent and earlier release time at the end of the day

  • Less distress caused by the plethora of special schedules now in use
  • Less class time lost for modified scheduling needs
  • Instructional time ends at 1:55 p.m. on Thursday on the Carondelet campus, which creates less missed class time for athletes and students participating in extracurricular events
  • A dedicated time during the school day on Wednesday and Thursday for tutoring, office hours, club meetings, make-up testing and other academic opportunities for students
  • With the addition of X blocks for tutoring, make-up testing and other academic needs, students will now have a "sacred" lunch or "down-time" in the middle of the busy day
  • Two late start days for students
  • A more viable period 7 academic offering time slot for Carondelet in terms of teacher preparation and planning

For future reference, you can access our new bell schedule on the parent and student portal of our website under "quick links."

During the week of Feb. 20, students from Carondelet and De La Salle flew to Washington, D.C. to participate in Close Up. Through this program, our students had the opportunity to meet with our Congressman, Mark DeSaulnier, sit in the gallery and watch Sen. John McCain participate in a debate on the Senate floor and meet other high school students from around the country. Our students had a great time exploring D.C., learning more about how our government works, and making new friends along the way.

"The trip far exceeded my expectations. I loved being able to learn beyond what is in our textbooks. It is one thing reading and hearing about what is happening in our government, but it's another being able to see what is going on first hand. The people I met and the places we visited will leave a lasting impression on me," said Aubrie H. '18.
