The Magic of Cristo Rey
On Thursday, February 25th, CRNYHS hosted our second virtual fundraising event of the school year -- The Magic of Cristo Rey! Our master emcees, Josh and Djibril, alums from the class of 2014, hosted a wonderful night filled with stories of what the real magic of Cristo Rey is all about. Current students revealed the big secret -- that the real magicians of CRNYHS are our hardworking and compassionate teachers. We also heard from three sisters, Emely ‘18, Esther ‘21, and Eliana ‘22, who told us about what Cristo Rey has meant to their family and their futures.

Black History Month Gala
One of our favorite Cristo Rey traditions is our annual Black History Month Gala. Typically, this event is held on a Saturday night in our Susan Braddock Arts Complex. Students, faculty, staff, family, and friends dress to impress for a night of amazing food and lots of dancing, singing, performances, and fun!
We weren’t able to have this same gala this year, but our impressive Black History Month Committee still put on an amazing virtual event for our community. The theme of this year’s gala was “Our Resilience and Joy.” Students performed songs, dances, and poems, read essays, and showed off their finest Africana attire. It was a moving and joyous event, and a great way for students to come together and celebrate in a year where that has not been easy to do.
