Diocesan Spelling Bee
For the first time ever, Cistercian hosted the Diocesan Bee, welcoming 28 other schools within the diocese to our campus. A Form IV student from Cistercian took 2nd place and will now advance to the County Bee in February. Good luck!
Silent Sky lecture
Dr. Olenick, Astrophysics professor at University of Dallas, visited Cistercian and wowed the students in Forms I-III with a lecture on the science behind Silent Sky, a play those forms will see at the end of the month.
Athlete of the Month
Congratulations to a Cistercian Junior who was named the Maxpreps Athlete of the Month! Each month, Maxpreps selects one female and one male athlete that fits their criteria: bravery, dedication, perseverence, personal sacrifice, and being a positive influence in one's community.
Congratulations to our Quiz Bowl team for their hard work at the recent Quiz Bowl competition at Seven Lakes HS in Katy, TX! It was a great experience as they prepare for NAQT Nationals to be held in Atlanta, Georgia.
French Movie Night
Last Friday, students from Cistercian and Ursuline attended a "French Movie Night" and watched Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont together. Also known as The African Doctor in English, the story tells about a man who grabs the opportunity to become a country doctor in a small French village.
Construction is coming along! Several projects are going on at the same time. The interior of the Retreat House is looking great. The exterior of the Retreat House is still in progress, 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.
