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.
For all college-bound seniors, the Parent Association is awarding five scholarships to graduating seniors.
Five $1,000 scholarships will be awarded.
500-word essays must be submitted by Sunday, March 25.
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.
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.

On January 12-15, Carondelet students became delegates to the Harvard Model Congress held in San Francisco. The event simulates the workings of the United States federal government where students act as members of Congress, argue cases in the Supreme Court, and become specialists in Federal agencies such as the FBI, CIA, and NSC.
Carondelet students Rin Oisaghie '18 and Annie Raines '18 earned the highest awards of Best Delegate for their four-day performance, arguing various court cases and being cross-examined by other Court delegates.
A message from Principal Kevin Cushing:
"We are looking forward to our annual One Billion Rising week that begins on February 5, where students focus on violence prevention against women worldwide. We have a number of events planned, including a presentation by Contra Costa County Deputy District Attorney Paul Graves, who will speak to students on February 8 about issues of sexual assault awareness and intervention."
Read about this and other events in January and February that promote a positive, respectful environment for our students.
Dozens of standout Carondelet students and five senior student-athletes were honored at an all-school assembly Wednesday morning. Five Cougars signed their National Letters of Intent to play collegiate athletics after graduation.
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."

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