The Magic of Cristo Rey
On Thursday, February 6th, Cristo Rey New York High School hosted our fifteenth annual Magic of Cristo Rey event. The evening was a great success, with over 300 guests joining us at Tavern on the Green to celebrate everything that makes Cristo Rey so “magical.” Our Advisory Committee did a fantastic job of filling the room with Corporate Work Study partners, friends, trustees, and alumni. Everyone spent the night bidding away in our silent and live auction, listening to our talented choir, and meeting some impressive Student Ambassadors. Yovanka ‘20, our student speaker, and Kay ‘12, our alumni speaker, lit up the room with their stories of their experiences at CRNYHS. Thank you to everyone who made it such a magical evening.

For one week each year, our Cristo Rey Lions get a chance to really show off that “Lion Pride.” During Spirit Week, homerooms compete against each other to earn points and ultimately become Spirit Week champions! Students earn points by dressing in theme each day, participating in lunch-time games and activities, playing in our Student vs. Faculty basketball game, and decorating their homeroom’s door! Teachers and staff get to participate in the fun, too, with departments competing against one another to be crowned winner. It’s a week of friendly competition that perks up what is typically a cold and dreary winter here in East Harlem and pumps some energy into our Lions before they head into exam season. Go Lions!!
