Hello Day

Hello Day is an annual tradition at Catholic High. Seniors welcome freshmen into the Catholic High family. The day begins in the cafeteria where Big Sisters present their Little Sisters with baskets filled with stuffed teddy bears, candy, and balloons. After lunch, the auditorium fills with laughter and excitement as the students, faculty, and staff perform skits that introduce the freshmen to life at Catholic High.

Then on Friday, Catholic High holds their annual Field Day which is an exciting day-long event where the classes battle against each other to earn points in fun games and activities. The students represent their class by wearing their class colors and decorating their side of the school gym!
