Black Friday Brunch Bunch
Bob Haaser and some alumni from his Class of 2014 got together over the Thanksgiving holidays for a meeting of the "Black Friday Brunch Bunch."
Construction is coming along! Several projects are going on at the same time. The Retreat House should be complete by December 1, and the Crypt should ready in Spring 2017. We thank all of you, the generous friends of Cistercian, who have made this construction possible by giving to the Building on a Solid Foundation Capital Campaign.

Congratulations to our Quiz Bowl teams on their great performance at the regional Quiz Bowl competition at Lovejoy High School! All four teams made it into Championship rounds, and advanced to different levels of the playoffs in the late afternoon. Cistercian B made it to the semi's and took a 3rd place trophy!
School House Rocks!
We hope everyone had a chance to see this year’s Middle School Musical, Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. It played to a full house in both performances and to rave reviews. Congratulations to all of our budding thespians and to their amazing director, Mr. Magill, for a job extremely well done!
Cistercian seniors built a hovercraft in physics and Fr. Joseph got to ride! Visit our Facebook page to see the video.
SMU Hart Global Leaders Forum
Three juniors attended the SMU Hart Global Leaders Forum on Monday. The keynote speaker was President George W. Bush. The students had a photo-op with the president, participated in a Q/A with him and visited the George W. Bush library in the afternoon. They also heard lectures from two SMU professors in political science and history and attended a luncheon with dozens of other high school students from the Dallas Metroplex.
