Junior High Life Skills Day

Each January, while the Seniors are on pilgrimage to the March for Life and the 9th-11th graders are on retreat, the Junior High is in charge! Parents and faculty come together to offer a variety of fun classes that teach types of ‘life skills’ and hobbies that students may diving into.

Student started the day with the Spelling Bee, where 8th grader Noah C. earned the top spot but Grace H. and Virginia Z. gave him a run for his money!

Students then enjoyed 6 different classes – check out the awesome topics offered this year:

Cooking Sauces with Mr. Zakrzewksi, Sewing with Mrs. Abbott, Hair Braiding with Mrs. Schell, How to Be Healthy or Die Trying with Mr. Freng, The Life of a Policeman with Officer Parker, Breadmaking with Mrs. Lancaster, Sacristy Basics with Mrs. Zimmerman, Palm Branch Weaving with Dr. Nielsen, Drum Circle with Ms. Tratar, Taste Around the World with Dr. Skemp, Acolyte Training with Fr.
