Freshman Jack Chacon spent the day on Capitol Hill yesterday advocating for Hereditary Angioedema, a rare and life threatening blood disorder he suffers from. He met with seven House & Senate representative offices sharing his story and asking for their support on bills that greatly affect the patient community, including Access to Marketplace Insurance and the Safe Step Act as well as an increase in funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for additional research.

The Digital Art & Photography Club has teamed up with the non-profit organization The Memory Project to create portraits of children in the country of Pakistan. The Memory Project is a unique initiative in which art students create portraits (drawings, paintings, digital art) for children around the world who have been orphaned, abandoned, neglected, or otherwise disadvantaged. To do this, student artists receive pictures of children who are waiting for portraits. The artists then create the portraits, & we coordinate the delivery of the portraits to the children. To cover costs, DAP club members will be selling custom student created stickers during CWP the week of 10/28. Stickers will sell for $2 each. We hope you will support this great cause.

"I really like the sense of community that I have found here at Oratory. I also like how the other students and teachers are all willing to help out one other whether it has to do with service, school work, or sports. I have truly enjoyed my past year here, and I am looking forward to the rest of my years here."
"It is a pleasure helping my juniors and seniors grow in maturity and intellect through my British Lit and AP Lit courses. I particularly enjoy challenging my students to become more independent thinkers and writers as they prepare for college."
"My favorite event at OP is the "Hypemas" Basketball game (the first home basketball game right before Christmas Break) because it gives all the guys a chance to bond and have a great time together."
