Activities and Traditions
During the academic day there is time for celebration, events, and gatherings that remind us we are a wonderful community. While strong academics are our first priority, we also recognize that involvement in less formal activities add to the Holy Child experience and develop a strong network and bonding among students.
These activities include:
- Buddies – Older students work with younger students in cross-grade lessons, reading and writing projects, and teaching games.
- Weekly School-wide Assemblies - We gather, pray, sing, and learn more abut each other during these gatherings.
- Halloween Parade – Everyone dresses according to a yearly theme; older students lead the younger students around our fields before parents, grandparents, and neighbors.
- Sledding – Students wearing snow apparel soar down our great hill on Wendover Field.
- Christmas Concert – Each Lower School and Middle School class contributes to this evening with song, dance, instruments, and a tableaux.
- Spring Arts Festival – Every child has a project that is displayed throughout School for parents, grandparents, and friends to see. The Middle School musical ensembles also perform.
- Spring Play– Open to Middle School students, this musical extravaganza is a traditional highlight of the final term.
- Spirit Month – During the dark days of winter, several days are devoted to students dressing in pajamas, mismatched clothes, sports attire, and as favorite teachers.
What would a school be without its traditions? The children, teachers, parents, grandparents, and community members look forward to these special events that take place throughout the year.
