Catholic Schools Week
CRBHS celebrated Catholic Schools Week from February 1 to February 5 with several events that celebrated the unique aspects of Catholic Education. In a morning assembly, students learned about the history of Catholic education in the United States and heard from students and teachers about what Catholic Schools mean to them. Senior, Chelsea Kelly, contributed a reflection to the National Catholic Educational Association, writing "Being in Catholic school has helped me understand the values of what God can do in my life. I really saw how God works through the people that follow him. Having the support that I had showed me ways to lean on God, and I am thankful for that." Read the full reflection here. We concluded the week with a mass co-celebrated by Bishop Sansaricq, Fr. Sean, and school chaplain, Fr. Dwayne.
CRBHS Featured in Crain's New York Business
CRBHS Board Chair, Bob Catell, and President, Bill Henson, wrote an Op-Ed which was featured in Crain's New York Business. They wrote on the impact of our Corporate Work Study Program, saying "At a time when minority youth unemployment far exceeds that of white counterparts, when companies increasingly believe college graduates are ill equipped for the workplace and universities are convinced incoming students are not prepared for college, one innovative program has been quietly bucking this trend."
