The school tradition (pictured above) of our soon to be graduates "walking the halls" is one of our school family’s favorite moments. As our robed 8th graders process through the corridors for their last time, cheers and congratulatory "shout outs" can be heard throughout the school building. Some of our teachers (and students) have been known to shed a tear or two as we think about our years together and realize just how quickly time passes. As I stood at the end of the hallway with camera ready, I heard a student exclaim, “They grow so fast!” From the mouths of babes, they certainly do, and we have so much to be grateful for! A beautiful weather day today made the perfect backdrop for the Class of 2019’s final field trip to Lake Compounce, before their Baccalaureate Mass tomorrow, and graduation on Monday. Congratulations to this year's Valedictorian Rebecca Antonio and our Salutatorian Natalie Morrison, as well as the entire Class of 2019 for making it to the finish line with a job well done.
The younger members of our school family also ventured off campus today to learn off site at Save the Bay in Newport. All other classes "buckled down" to discuss end of year assessments and prepare to demonstrate mastery of grade level concepts. While our older students will have finals next week, our second graders will execute another favorite tradition, The Wax Museum, and our third graders will host a Poetry Café. Our week will end with our Boostherthon and Field Day, which is sure to be a GREAT way to conclude our year!
Have a wonderful weekend and God bless-
