All Saints Day Liturgy on Nov. 1

All Saints Day is a time to remember the special bond we share with the living and the dead. This feast gives us the opportunity to celebrate all saints, both official saints and "everyday saints" who inspire us and help us along our journey.  Each of us are called to be saints - to live our ordinary lives with extraordinary love.

Forensics Bloodstain Pattern Analysis

Dr. Hutches' Forensics class performed bloodstain pattern analysis tests on Halloween. Students created several "blood" patterns by dropping mock blood from various heights, angles, speeds, and using repeated blows.

They'll compare the bloodstain patterns they produced with evidence they found at a mock crime scene earlier in the semester.
Earlier this week was one of our absolute favorite days of the year: St. Marty's Party, where we transform our campus into an over-the-top Halloween Celebration!  We welcomed more than 80 kids from the Monument Crisis Center (and a few of our own teachers' mini-me's) to campus for Trick or Treating, a Scare Room, games, and more.  None of this would have been possible without the more than 260 students who volunteered to make the party a memorable evening for the visiting kiddos!
