Catholic Schools Week Update

Tuesday, February 1, 2011 – Spirit Day
Spirit Day was celebrated with a no uniform day. Students wore school colors and the afternoon brought a pep rally led by the Class of 2011. The afternoon started with the students that wore their crazy hats to school on Monday parading across the stage for all of the grades to see their great creations.  Next the eighth grade Student council acknowledged January birthdays. Students having a birthday in January were called to the stage where they were given a certificate and a lollipop. The whole school then sang Happy Birthday to the group. Club members were the next to be called to the center of the room.  As each club was called members introduced themselves and gave their grade. The day ended with the eighth grade girls leading the whole school in a very loud “Bulldogs” cheer.

Wednesday, February 2, 2011 – NO SCHOOL DUE TO ICE STORM

The eighth grade students were science teachers for grades K through 5. They planned and taught a science lesson to their assigned class. One of the lessons that the eighth graders said they had learned was that teaching is not as easy as it looks. The prep work for even one lesson was time consuming. Class control even with the teacher in the class was not easy. However, they all said that they greatly enjoyed the experience.

Thursday afternoon was the big volleyball game between the faculty and the Class of 2011. The whole school came to the auditorium for the match. After some practice time both sides were ready to play. In the end the match played out to a 9 – 9 tie. Everyone had a great time whether they were spectators or participants.

What could be better than a 12:30 dismissal to end our celebration of Catholic Schools Week? The Classes of 2011, 2012, and 2013 tried to make the day even better by sponsoring a School Spirit Carnival. They made their own games, constructed booths and gave the rest of the school a fun morning.
