Meet CCS’s 2019 Valedictorian And Salutatorian

Dr. Pat O’Brien has announced CCS’s 2019 Valedictorian, Mina Bourquin, and Salutatorian, Abigail Dean. These prestigious awards are based on Mina and Abby’s outstanding academic success at CCS. The students credit CCS’s size and culture for helping them to achieve many other successes, as well.

“Having peers and mentors who are constantly dedicated to building us up has been so important,” Abby commented. “Being surrounded by people who are all passionate about making the school and our community better has given me the opportunities that I have had to get to this point.”

“Collegium is like a family, giving us space to grow as students and people. Without the teachers and students at CCS, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.” -Mina Bourquin, CCS 2019 Valedictorian
Pictured: Mina Bourquin, CCS 2019 Valedictorian, and Abigail Dean, CCS 2019 Salutatorian.

The CCS learning environment enabled Mina and Abby to put their interests into action inside and outside of the classroom. Both have founded, participated in, and led multiple clubs at CCS. These include organizations like the National Honor Society, UNICEF, and She’s the First. They're also editors and writers for CCS Roar, the High School’s newspaper, and Anamnesis, our yearbook. In addition to their extracurriculars, Abby and Mina participated in dual enrollment classes with Immaculata University and Delaware County Community College, and work together at CCS as After-School Care Program Assistants.

After graduation from CCS, Mina will participate in a dual B.A. program with Sciences Po and Columbia University.

Even though they’ve been friends since 6th Grade, it’s clear that Mina and Abby are different as people and scholars. Mina shared, “I’m a naturally curious and self-motivated person; learning has always been enjoyable for me. Doing well academically comes with hard work, but it’s not necessarily my end goal in and of itself.”

“Despite what people may tell you, success is different for everyone. Find what makes you happy and you will find success.” - Mina Bourquin, CCS 2019 Valedictorian
Mina and her mother, Penny, at Columbia University.

For Abby, the loss of her father to cancer when she was a toddler has shaped her life goals. “Every story I’ve heard about my father has told of an amazing, kind, and encouraging man. I’ve always strived to be a good person, someone he would be proud to call his daughter. This loss has definitely pushed me to always do my best,” she said.

In the fall, Abby will attend her father’s alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh, to study Biological Sciences.
“I want people to know that they don't have to be the smartest person in the world to succeed. I am by no means the smartest person in the school. But caring for those around you and just trying hard is what pays off in the end. Everything happens for a reason, and supporting those around you to succeed will come back around to you as well.” - Abby Dean, CCS 2019 Salutatorian
Left: Abby and her mom, Monica Pica. Right: Abby at age three with her dad, Jeffrey Dean.

Abby and Mina also say that they’ve been fortunate to have the influence of strong women in their lives: “Our moms have had to overcome a lot and have been role models of resilience, strength, and overcoming,” they shared.

Mina, our 2019 Valedictorian, will participate in a dual B.A. program with Sciences Po and Columbia University. She plans to study Political Science and American History and will begin her college education in France this fall.

Our Salutatorian, Abby, will attend her father’s alma mater, the University of Pittsburgh, to study Biological Sciences. Her goal is to become a Genetic Oncologist (cancer research geneticist) to help other families affected by cancer.

We’re so inspired by these young ladies. Congratulations on your Valedictorian and Salutatorian honors, and best wishes for many more successes!

Grades K-4 RAP Literacy Luau A Tropical Triumph

The Title I/RAP Team of Reading Specialists hosted their second Grades K-4 RAP Family Literacy Night on Tuesday, May 21st. The Literacy Luau theme was a huge hit with students and their families!

“[B]oth children had such a great time last night!!! They could not stop talking about it the entire car ride home...were actually reading their books already, too! I can only imagine the amount of preparation that goes into an event like this and everything was so well organized. I was very impressed! I just wanted to say thank you to all of the teachers and students that helped last night because it was an awesome night!” -CCS Parent/Guardian

The 150 Building's Cafeteria was transformed into a Literacy Luau paradise! RAP students and their families were greeted with Hawaiian leis by 150 Building Assistant Principal, Mr. Thorpe, and had their pictures taken on the island with the famous Chick-fil-A cow. Then everyone enjoyed dinner and conversation before beginning their tropical trips!

On their trips, families had the opportunity to travel to several islands where they could participate in a wide range of fun-filled literacy activities. They fed rhyming words to Shawn the Shark, played beach ball sight word toss, wrote seashell words in sand, and made word underwater bubbles glow—just to name a few items on their tropical travel itineraries! As students and their families moved from one beach to the next, they collected stickers on their Island Hopper Passes that they turned in at the end of the night for a brand new book. To top it all off, four lucky students won buckets of books and tropical treats!

“That was so much fun! I love my books! Feeding the shark was my favorite thing! I liked the flashlights, too! When can we do it again?” – CCS Student

On behalf of the Title I/RAP Team of teachers—Mrs. Colleen Danilson, Mrs. Susan Wineland, Mrs. Amanda Shweiky, and Mrs. Cathy Baker—we thank all of the students, families, staff, and volunteers who made this night such a tremendous success! We appreciate all of your support in creating an enjoyable literacy event for our students and their families, and we look forward to hosting more family literacy nights next year!

2019's K-6 Annual Art Show Was Inspired!

Our Annual K-6 Art Show on Friday, May 24th had a great turnout! The Elementary Art Team was so excited to showcase their students' hard work and creativity. In addition to the Art Show, the event featured carnival fun, yummy treats, and other fun activities.

The student artwork displayed was carefully selected for the show. This year, multiple tables of three-dimensional pieces like clay sculptures and works created with weaving were also available for all to see.

We thank the many families who spent time with us at this year's K-6 Annual Art Show appreciating our young and talented students' artwork. The evening was a wonderful celebration of their gifts and innovation. All proceeds of the event will benefit the Art Department's continued efforts to inspire our young CCS artists. Thank you for another year of continued support!

News From Our Athletics Department

PIAA Track & Field Championships

CCS has many extraordinary student-athletes, some of whom attend CCS but play sports with teams in their home school districts.

Two such student-athletes are CCS Seniors Wiltricia S. and Camari S. Both Wiltricia and Camari brought home 4 x 100 relay medals from last Saturday’s PIAA Track & Field Championships!

Wiltricia’s Girls Team won a Bronze Medal at the event, with a finish time of 47.86 seconds. Wiltricia ran the first leg of her team’s relay.

Camari ran the third leg of his Boys Track Team’s race. His team stole the show, running the race in a 20-year record-breaking 40.99 seconds to win the Gold Medal.

"It's incredible what these student-athletes accomplished! Their individual performances and team wins really show Wiltricia’s and Camari’s hard work and dedication. It’s a pleasure to see their sacrifices pay off.” -John Allen, CCS’s Director of Athletics & Extracurricular Activities

Both Wiltricia and Camari plan to attend college, where they’ll continue their running careers. We applaud their accomplishments and are delighted that they’ve been a part of our CCS Community!

As you can imagine, late notice of student withdrawals can be very disruptive to Collegium's planning and budget, as well as to prospective CCS students and families. Thank you.

Collegium Employee Spotlight: Chris Hojnacki

This Newsletter section highlights one Collegium employee each week, and allows families and students to get to know them better. Now, when you see featured employees on campus, you can greet them by name and strike up conversations! Watch this video to learn more about Chris Hojnacki, 486 Building Receptionist.

Education Explained: Service Hours

Each week, CCS employees highlight common terms and philosophies in education and explain how they impact teaching and learning at Collegium. This week's contribution comes from Dr. Pat O’Brien, Collegium High School’s Principal, and Ms. Vicki Whisler, the High School Counseling Services Coordinator.

Last week, my team and I highlighted suggestions for helping students be “High School Ready.” This week, I'd like to share insights about one specific graduation requirement: service hours. As stated in the CCS High School Program of Studies 2018-2019, “High school students must complete and document through x2VOL (a program in the Naviance Suite) a minimum of ten community service hours per year of high school attendance at CCS, for a total of 40 hours." (See page 9.) Spread over four years, the service hour requirement can provide CCS students with many opportunities to expand their understanding of the broader community and positively impact the lives of others.

Benefits of Community Service

The intent of the service hour requirement is to underscore the importance of giving back to the community on a regular and ongoing basis. Additionally, performing community service creates a world of new opportunities for students. Some students have even chosen career paths based on their volunteer experiences. Other service hour requirement benefits to students include:

  • Experience
  • Networking/Internships
  • Scholarships
  • College Applications
  • Resume Building

For an organization to be considered as an approved location, it must be a nonprofit with a 501(c)(3) designation, and it must serve the community at large. Some examples of types of organizations which have been approved include libraries, public schools, houses of worship, and food pantries. We also have many opportunities right here at CCS.

A list of previously approved organizations can be found on the Collegium Charter High School Counseling website and on the student dashboard in x2VOL. If students would like to volunteer for an organization that's not on the list, email Ms. Whisler with the organization's contact information. She will determine—with the input of the administrative team—if the organization meets the community service criteria, and, if approved, will add the organization to the approved list.

Students’ service hours and experiences can be used to bolster college and scholarship applications. University admissions counselors look at students’ volunteer experiences as another layer to their applications. Exposure to different volunteering environments has benefitted students in the past by allowing them the opportunity to explore new situations that have led to paths of study in college. Community service is also a great way of networking to find jobs and internships while students are still in High School.

When volunteering, students must be supervised by a member of the approved organization. Students should get the name and email of this supervisor and let them know to expect a verification email. Students should then enter the service into x2VOL as soon as possible for verification. Ms. Whisler visits all 9th Grade classes to show students how to enter their hours in x2VOL. She is also available to all students any time they need advice finding a place to volunteer or help entering their hours.

If you know of a non-profit organization that needs volunteers, please reach out to Ms. Whisler so that she can share the opportunity with our students.

College Application Essay Review Session

The application essay can be the deciding factor on whether a student gains admission to the college or university of their choice. At the College Essay Review Session, Juniors will receive support and feedback on their essays, regardless of where they are in the essay writing process. High School teachers will be prepared to help with:

  • Understanding and choosing an essay question
  • Brainstorming
  • Drafting
  • Proofreading/editing

Students should bring any completed components of their essays with them to the College Essay Review Session, along with questions they might have. Computers will be available for all students who wish to attend.

Information On 2019-2020 Child Care And Bus Transportation

Will your child need transportation next school year to and/or from a day care center or babysitter within the Downingtown, West Chester, or Coatesville School Districts? Families who need alternate bus arrangements—like those for day care centers, babysitters, or bus stops other than your home—must complete a new Child Care Form each year. Current school year arrangements will not carry over to new school years.

You can find the Child Care Forms for the Downingtown, West Chester, and Coatesville Area School Districts at the buttons below. The Child Care Forms are also posted in the Resource section of our Transportation webpage linked below.

By Friday, June 14th, please complete your 2019-2020 school year Child Care Form and email it to Collegium's Transportation Department using the button provided. If your family doesn't need alternate bus transportation for the 2019-2020 school year, there's nothing that you need to do.

Note: Your local school district's transportation office will mail details about your child's 2019-2020 home bus stop. Expect that mailing about one week before school starts. This is also when CCS receives students' bus information from our transporting districts.

Questions? Email CCS's Transportation Department via the link below.
