On February 5-9, Carondelet and De La Salle students participated in several events designed to address the difficult topics of sexual harassment and assault, domestic abuse and human trafficking.

Carondelet's RISE week was developed in responseto One Billion Rising, which began in 2012 as an international movement to end rape and sexual violence against women.

Students were encouraged to "RISE" with one another and commit to fostering a worldwide culture of respect, inclusion, solidarity and empowerment.

RISE Week culminated in a fun and powerful school-wide "Break the Chain" dance in the Amp. Watch the video below and check out the full photo gallery.

Día de los Muertos is a Mexican celebration honoring deceased family and friends. This ancient, mystical tradition is a mix of indigenous rituals and Catholicism. Día de los Muertos dates back to the pre-Hispanic cultures of Meso-America 3,000 years ago. On Día de los Muertos, it is believed that the dead return to visit their living relatives and friends. Elaborate altars are constructed in each home and in cemeteries. They are adorned with candles, marigolds, plates of delicious food, and round loaves of bread called Pan de Muertos. Folk art and frosted sugar skulls add the finishing touches.

When Carondelet High School's Jefferson Awards, Students in Action (JA-SIA) Team heard about the evacuated seniors from the North Bay wildfire areas being temporarily housed at Montecito Senior Living in Concord, they immediately wanted to help them. Mrs. Cindy Lawrence, Community Service Coordinator, contacted Montecito Senior Living to find out what items the seniors needed. The JA-SIA Team spent over half of the Club's award money to buy t-shirts, socks, and Chapstick for the residents. They even donated gently used men's jeans. The students wanted to show the seniors that they care and support them during this difficult time.

"My heart immediately went out to all of those who were forced to evacuate their homes from the fire. I could not imagine what they were going through," said Adriana Conte ' 19. "This service project allowed me and the Jefferson Awards team to make a valuable difference in someone's life and bring happiness to them despite what they had been through. I could never pass up this opportunity."

Good morning. Carondelet and De La Salle will be open today.

We are aware that several school districts have made the decision to close school for today while several will remain open.

Our students are our priority and we will take the following steps to ensure their health:

▪ Typical outdoor activities, like Kinesiology classes, will be held inside

▪ Lunch will be held inside and students will be kept inside on breaks
▪ Windows and doors will be kept shut
▪ Staff will be very mindful of students, staff and visitors who are sensitive to air quality
▪ Maintenance staff is ensuring that outside air infiltration is kept to a minimum

We recognize each family will make decisions that are personally best for them regarding school attendance on Thursday. Any absence related to air quality will be excused.

Compassionate Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated by recent natural disasters and unimaginable violence. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayer for strength.

Due to poor air quality and proximity to the fires in the North Bay, several of our sites for tomorrow's Day of Service have changed.

There are four locations that are impacted, including the Fairfield Food Bank, Pleasant Hill Park, Shadowood Park, and Rogers Ranch.

The students who were scheduled to engage in community service at these locations will instead be staying on campus. Here, they will engage in an experiential simulation relating to service and justice in our community.

Those students who are now staying on-campus are still expected to follow the same instructions including start and end time.

PG&E has turned off the power on the De La Salle campus due to a faulty electrical transformer. As a result, all network services and servers are down until Friday, Sept. 29 at 3:00am.

This does not impact the Carondelet campus in any way.

Carondelet will be holding classes tomorrow.

If PG&E is not able to complete the work as planned, De La Salle will send a blast to parents and students. Carondelet students with classes on the DLS campus would instead have study halls at Carondelet.

Again, Carondelet will be open as usual tomorrow and PG&E expects work to be completed in the time frame described above.
