Community Service Day
Thanks to everyone who participated in Upper School Community Service Day! Seniors and Form I students helped repair the stations trails, juniors volunteered with Keep Irving Beautiful-Great American Clean Up, sophomores helped with a clothing drive at Mission Arlington, and the freshmen delivered bedding to homes in need as part of the “Bedstart” program.
Form I joined Form VIII to perform some simple maintenance the Stations of the Cross trail. Teams lined the trail with logs and cleared out some underbrush from the area. The seniors had been working on the trail for years and were happy to hand it off to the school’s youngest class.
The Upper School Art Workshops were a great success! Many thanks to Mr. Munguia and the parent volunteers for all their hard work, planning, and execution. See the video on the Cistercian Dallas Youtube Channel.
