Piles For Progress! 
 
They are known to many on campus as the team that makes sure recycling is picked up and organized. But last week the Environmental Club expanded its ventures and took on a new task. The club went off campus to partner with the Anne Kolb Nature Center and to participate in a clean-up event. 
 
10 students spent time near the Carpenter House in Hollywood removing invasive vine species. They worked on the secondary dunes (sand areas that sit further back from the water) and were able to remove 22 large bags of plants. The vines, including Pothos and one known as Mother- In-Law’s Tongue, are common house plants but can be very dangerous to the ecosystem. This is because they overtake the area and can suffocate the natural wildlife. 
 
Yet, removal wasn’t an easy task, as the team found out. The Environmental Club had to work hard, as the plants can grow so strong they can be used as a makeshift rope swing. A few students tested this theory and had a laugh as they swung back and forth on the sturdy vine (check out our stories on social media to see photos!). Unfortunately, those vines were too strong to be taken down, but with some muscle, the club was able to remove a lot of other plants. 
 
Ms. Fraser, Moderator of Environmental Club, said she and the students had a lot of fun and can’t wait to attend another cleanup event. She was proud of the students for working hard and getting so much accomplished. Kara K. ‘21,  is the president of the Environmental Club and really enjoyed the clean-up, saying that you could tell the difference they made in their 3 hours of work. 
 
The Environmental Club will continue its on-campus initiatives but looks forward to hopefully being able to visit a state park for its end of the year event. There might even be kayaking involved, so it’s sure to be another fun time! 
 
Thank you, Environmental Club for all your hard work and for being a great representation of our CMCP community!

CMCP CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY MONTH
During the month of February, CMCP as a school community will be highlighting and celebrating black Americans who have made contributions to our society. As we celebrate, we pray in thanksgiving for the many gifts and talents shared by black Americans. We pray that all of us may embody Catholic Social Teaching by treating everyone with dignity and promoting racial justice and equality for all people. Today we give particular thanks for the late Thea Bowman, who was the granddaughter of slaves, the only African American member of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, and who made a lasting mark on U.S. Catholic life in the late 20th century with her brilliant mind, beautiful voice, and dynamic personality.

Important Updates

The new CDC guidelines will recommend close contacts of those infected with the coronavirus should quarantine for 7 to 10 days after exposure, down from the 14 days currently recommended. Individuals can end their quarantine after 7 days if they receive a negative test or 10 days without getting tested.
