Winter Weather Reminder

November 15, 2018
By Dr. Moran

November 2018

Dear Cheverus Community,

As we enter the season of possible inclement weather, we want to remind families that announcements concerning the cancellation of school or late starts due to inclement weather will be made through our phone-alert system. We will also post any changes/cancellations on our website and local television stations.

This is also a good time to remind parents that when it comes to snow days, you have a decision to make as well. In making decisions about any delays or cancellations, we will always try to make the best decision for all of our families, but with the widespread locations our families travel from and with the inconsistencies in weather patterns in our area, it can be hard to make the perfect decision for every family every time. It can be raining & clear roads in Cape Elizabeth and snowing & impassable in parts of Westbrook.

Parents, please feel empowered and encouraged by the school to make the best decision for you and your children in regards to travelling to and from school during times of inclement weather. Even if we have not cancelled or delayed classes, if you do not feel it is safe to commute from your area please contact the Main Office to let us know your child will not be in school due to the weather.

Students, you also have a job on snow days - check for assignments. With e-mail and Google Classrooms, you know that your teachers are able to keep in touch and post assignments beyond the classroom, so please be sure to check these places when you are not in school due to weather.


John Moran, Ed.D.

Cheverus Dedicates Painting in Memory of Fernanda Darrow, Former Chair of World Languages Department

September 28, 2018
By Office of Communications

Family, friends, colleagues, and students gathered in the chapel to remember long-time teacher Fernanda Darrow, who passed away last September. At the ceremony, Fr. Bob Pecoraro, S.J. recalled that “Fernanda was a joy-filled person who shared her positive energy with all those who knew her. Ms. Darrow was our Spanish teacher, our World Language department chair, a driving force for our Karaoke Night and Christmas Tree Drive -- but more than anything, she was a beautiful person who radiated goodness.”

At the September 25 ceremony, the painting "Por la Gracia de Dios" was dedicated in memory of Ms. Darrow. The painting was donated by the Sisters Adorers of the Most Precious Blood and artist Ines Barcena. The Sisters are a cloistered order who have been housed on State St. in Portland for 80 years. Next month, the two remaining Sisters will move to the motherhouse in Manchester, NH. Fr. Pecoraro expressed the gratitude of the entire Cheverus community to the Sisters and Ms. Barcena and thanked them for their presence at the ceremony. The painting has been placed just outside the chapel in Loyola Hall. Fr. Pecoraro concluded the service by saying, “May all who see it take a moment to meditate on the grace of God, and the light that God brings to our lives, just as Fernanda brought light and joy to all who knew her.”

Rachael Haskell Named Winner of 2018 Amirault Scholarship

March 16, 2018
By Bethany Hanley

Rachael Haskell Named Winner of a 2018 Amirault Scholarship

March 16, 2018

Congratulations to senior Rachael Haskell, the recipient of the 2018 Lila Grace Sullivan Amirault Scholarship.

The scholarship fund, which helps Maine Catholic high school students with college tuition costs, was established in 2013 by the late Patrick Amirault, in memory of his wife. Amirault, who grew up as one of nine children in a poor family in Malden, Mass., created the fund to show his appreciation for the care and quality education he received at a Catholic school there. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be accepted at an accredited college or university and must plan to work while attending college. Each recipient will receive $4,500.

“I know that there were many worthy candidates and to be chosen is truly an honor,” said Rachael. “I am deeply grateful for this opportunity and the kindness behind it.”

One of seven children, Rachael, appreciates the gift of family, including her second family: a community of friends and teachers at Cheverus that has given her so much.

 “You can tell that people, especially the teachers, they really care for you. They will listen to you, and they will talk with you and try to help you. And it’s also present in the students, too,” said Rachael. “That’s what it means to be a Cheverian. It means to recognize interdependence and devote yourself to bettering the world around you.”

Rachael’s time at Cheverus High School has been a transformative experience.

“Cheverus is a school that emphasizes the need to care for others, which is immensely important in the formation of education in understanding its greater purpose,” said Rachael. “Cheverus has been a welcoming community, and they have taught me through love and patience and showed me that my purpose in this world is inherently connected to the people around me.”

 Something that Rachael, even as a senior in high school, has already accomplished. She has donated her time to countless local charities and community initiatives. Cheverus has created in her a “desire for justice,” especially for those who are suffering. In the summer before her senior year, she went on an immersion trip to the southern border of the United States.

 “The stories told in the news became more than stories. They were people with faces, personalities, and dignity,” said Rachael. “We heard stories from real immigrants about crossing over and being detained. We went to the court and heard the trials of caught migrants. We traveled through the desert in scorching Arizona temperatures, experiencing a small portion of the paths of migrants. I saw the suffering of the world not as something distant that had nothing to do with me but as a personal offense, like it was my own dignity that was being wounded.”

 Still considering several outstanding colleges, she plans to study psychology with aspirations to become a child therapist.

“It took me a while to process that being a Catholic didn’t mean you had to be physically going out and saving people. You just have to be using the gifts that God gave you to try to make the world a better place. I am particularly interested in practicing therapy, especially in working with children. I have always enjoyed working with children, and I have always had an ability to read and write,” said Rachael, who also plans to minor in English or creative writing. “I enjoy analyzing and creating characters, and I believe that these traits can be used practically to better society as best as I am able. I hope to utilize my major and my minor to produce a result that best suits my interests and the community's interests by being a steward of the gifts that I have been given.”

 Rachael is a member of the National Honor Society; has a gift for performing (she’s a member of the Cheverus Drama Society); and is driven by her faith.

 “I’ve always wanted to do something to help people because that is something really taught in Catholicism. You’re interdependent with everyone else, your destiny is locked with everyone else’s, and you are meant to help other people,” said Rachael.

Marine Bio Class Cleans Up

September 15, 2017
By Erika Rhile
Marine Biology participating in International Coastweek Cleanup

Cheverus' Marine Biology class took part in International Coastweek Cleanup by picking up trash around Back Cove on Friday, September 15. Students exclaimed: "You could be here all day [picking up cigarette butts]!" and "This is so frustrating. I'm so irritated by people just leaving this." However, multiple Back Cove runners thanked them for their efforts.

Border Trip Explores Complex Issues

Borderlinks Delegation, 2017

Pictured above (l to r): Rachael Haskell, Mary Wallace, Christopher Hoffman, Julia Mount, Ms King, Karen Nielsen, Eva Griffiths, Sophie Scheule, Shawnee Berke, Ms Po.

Eight students travelled with Ms. Po and Ms. King to Tucson, Arizona, for a southern border immersion experience this summer.  During the intensive week of  experiential learning, the delegation heard many stories of migrants coming to the U.S. They learned about the intricacies of the legal system and the fragility of the desert ecosystems.  The border wall controversy came alive as they examined the history of our southern border, United States relations with Mexico and Central America, as well as Border Patrol policies and procedures.
