A message from President Bonnie Cotter:
The best part of being an educator here at Carondelet is the opportunity to grow and learn something new each day alongside our students. At 10 a.m. today, hundreds of our students joined with students from across the nation and participated in the National School Walkout, a 17-minute event marking the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
The 17-minute "Winton Walkout" was entirely student-organized and led. This was not a school-sponsored assembly. It was the students' voices that demanded to be heard, not the voices of the adults. And while the majority of our students participated in the walkout, other students chose not to. As a school community, we support all our students and their right to express themselves in a safe environment as they continue to learn more about themselves and the world around them.
Carondelet High School today dedicated its state-of-the-art aquatics facility, named for alumna and three-time swimming Olympic gold medalist, Natalie Coughlin Hall, who graduated from the school in 2000. The Natalie Coughlin Aquatic Center is a featured part of the school's brand new, six-acre, Walnut Creek-based Carondelet Athletics Complex.
"Today, we usher in a new era at Carondelet that will open new doors of opportunity for all of our young women – now and for generations to come," said President Bonnie Cotter.
Carondelet High School will celebrate Sisterhood Week March 19-23. This is a more recent tradition at Carondelet where the students recognize and honor their relationships and connections with each other, as well as the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. This Sisterhood celebration encompasses St. Joseph's Day, the feast day of the sisters, to recognize and honor them as well.
How do you begin imagining the kind of science, technology and innovation center that will equip young women for careers that don't yet exist? Ask the experts.Carondelet has recruited a diverse group of advisors from the most successful tech companies and the most respected university faculties to help design a truly unique STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and Innovation Center for students. The Advisory Council was launched at the IBM Watson Center in San Francisco this summer, and subsequent workshops with advisors, faculty and students have explored curriculum of the future and how to design flexible space for maximum innovation.
