In Spanish class, Cistercian Juniors participate in an activity asking and answering questions in a series of short conversations with partners.
Following the tradition of so many classes before, the seniors and freshmen participated in the annual “Baptism”, which is the welcoming ceremony for all freshmen coming into high school. Both students and Form Master participate in the Cistercian tradition of being thrown into a swimming pool by the members of the senior class. Every freshman entered the pool safely, and no injuries were obtained.

An exhibit of paintings, drawings, and prints by Roberto Munguia
Reception: September 16, 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Locale: Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Culture Center, 600 River St., Austin, TX 78701
"Like a diviner," states Mr. Munguia, "I am seeking for something not readily seen and not easily learned within my encaustic practice. The work in this show hints at an imagined primordial state of awareness, below the surface, root-like, having to do with both physical and metaphysical processes, dreams, myth, and the translucence of existence."
The exhibit runs through November 26.
