The junior class of St. Paul High school took a college visit to Bowling Green State University. They took a shortened tour of the campus. They got to see the business classrooms, the library, and an example of a freshman dorm. The Class of 2015 learned a lot about the campus. We learned that their business administration has been very successful in the past. The campus is complex and nice. BGSU is a Division 1 college. They have very well taught business and construction management courses. It was a successful day and a good learning experience for the Junior class of St. Paul High School.
This past weekend was a busy weekend for St. Paul High School. Saturday, the high school held their annual homecoming parade before the homecoming game. Each class participated in making a float to represent their class and this years homecoming theme, “Fall Ball.” The parade included the St. Paul Marching Brass and the attendants in their fancy cars, as well as the floats. The students showed some school pride with cheers repping their school and while the parade was in action, students handed out candy to kids.
This years attendants included:
Freshman- Derek and Kaeleigh
Sophomore- Abay and Paige
Junior- Larry and Andrea
Senior- Jesse and Bella, Elise, Olivia, and Sarah
Attendants lined up on the football field in recognition alongside their fathers. Each attendant was followed by a little girl handing them flowers. Everyone waited for last year’s queen, Allie Fitzgerald, to crown the queen for 2013-14. The winner for this years homecoming queen was Sarah Cannon with Jesse Gross as king.
During the week of October 7-11, the Jr. High/High school students and staff of St. Paul participated in the annual homecoming week festivities known as “Spirit week”. On Monday, the theme was Flyer attire. Tuesdays theme was superhero day. On Wednesday, the students dressed up as twins for twin day. Halloween day was the theme for Thursday. Dress up day was on Friday. There were some crazy ideas during spirit week, and almost every student participated each day. “Spirit week is always something to look forward to,” stated one of the students. It is a tradition at the school to celebrate the week of homecoming by having a different theme every day of the week, voting on homecoming class attendants, and at the end of spirit week, we all gather to the convocation center gym for a pep rally and skit. Spirit week is a very fun week for the staff and students!
On October 1st, the junior class participated in a retreat located at St. Alphonsus Church. The retreat was lead by a group of young adults in an organization called N.E.T. (National Evangelization Team). The team reaches out to young teens and individuals about the importance of being Catholic and becoming strong in faith. The team exercised ways in which everyone could participate and have a better understanding for Christ. The team revealed experiences and stories in which everyone could relate, in attempts to strengthen their own relationships with God.
Activities the juniors participated in were some team building games such as freeze tag, phantom wink, and skits. Freeze tag was to represent what life would be like with limited to no rules, showing the emotions and feelings that the chaos would bring. Phantom wink was to lighten the mood, where students would shake hands and whoever was the “phantom” and winked at the individual, the individual would then be out. The skits had important lessons to go with the topics of discussion, but were also used for entertainment. The juniors were also separated into groups called small groups, so students could open up to each about their faith and a variety of other topics.The team continued their mission the following day with the Junior High students to also further their relationships with Jesus.
