For many schools, Catholic Schools Week is just like any ordinary school week. But for Mercy, it is a week filled with faith and fun. It is a special time to celebrate the gift of Catholic schools, and to acknowledge how privileged we are to have the opportunity to go to a school like Mercy.
During Catholic Schools Week, we have special activities or events planned for each day. This Thursday was Spirit Day, and the whole school got to dress down in their Mercy gear. Spirit Day means amping up our school spirit, so in the morning all the students and teachers gathered in the gym for a pep rally. During the pep rally, dancers performed, and the cheerleaders did their routines. Another big event on Thursday was Pack the House. Pack the House is a home basketball game attended by as many Mercy fans as can fit in the gym. Even though Mercy lost against Roncalli, the school spirit was strong, and everybody had a great time.
Since this was my first Catholic Schools Week at Mercy, I didn’t really know much about any of the events or traditions which take place during the week. Now that I have experienced them, I realize how fun and unique these traditions really are. By far, this Catholic Schools Week has been the best one I have ever experienced, and I can’t wait until next year to do it again!
