Catalyst Maria High School Unveils New E-Soccer Team in Celebration of National Youth Soccer Month (2)

In celebration of US Youth Soccer’s National Youth Soccer Month, Catalyst Maria High School announced the formation of a 7-player boys E-Soccer Team. “This was the players’ idea,” said Mr. José Miguel Burgos, Catalyst Maria Head Soccer Coach. “They were already competing among themselves with their neighborhood friends. So we asked how can the school get behind them, support them, and help them be successful?” Mr. Burgos arranged for the purchase of new team jerseys for the players (pictured below) and even procured new controllers for some of the student athletes who needed them.  

Noting the importance of community to the sport of soccer, Burgos continued. “We want the players to feel that together they are part of something special even at a time when they are physically distanced. The simple act of putting on school or team colors can make a big difference whether you’re playing on a field or a digital platform. At the same time, it provides me an opportunity to strengthen the teacher-student relationship with the kids.” 

Catalyst launches Alumni Persistence Fund

Dear Catalyst supporters,

We hope that you and your families are safe, healthy and doing well.

We are extremely excited to announce the establishment of The Catalyst Schools Alumni Persistence Fund, made possible by the generosity of long-time Catalyst friends Terry and Monica Toth. The fund's purpose is to help Catalyst alumni meet urgent needs that might otherwise be an obstacle to continuing post-secondary education. Terry and Monica established this fund to honor the spirit and legacy of John Baptiste De La Salle, patron saint of teachers of youth. Funds will be shepherded by the Catalyst Maria Post-Secondary Success Team and granted to students who need help with items such as books, computers, transportation costs, supplemental fees or other costs that interfere with progress. 

This is a terrific gift that complements the existing Sisters of St. Casimir Legacy Scholarship, also established by Terry and Monica, and The CMHS Leadership in Diversity Scholarship, established by CMHS Post-Secondary team member Victoria Coriano and funded by CMHS faculty and friends. These remarkable contributions will enhance Catalyst's already superb college going and college persistence rates, as well as other post-secondary endeavors of our awesome graduates!
