IHA Celebrates Catholic School’s Week With A Pep Rally

Seniors Win Again!

The week that all Catholic schools have been waiting for is finally here: Catholic Schools Week! Catholic Schools Week has been an ongoing tradition that has been celebrated since 1974. For those in Immaculate Heart Academy, it is a week to grow in deeper our faith and also strengthen the bond of our sisterhood. Many events go on throughout the week, from the opening liturgy and lunchtime service projects to the Student/Faculty Volleyball game. However, one event that certainly has the entirety of the student body hyped and full of spirit is the Catholic Schools Week Pep Rally.

Senior Christina Lenoci’19, hosted this year’s pep rally and started off the afternoon by hyping the students to see which grade has the most spirit. Rosie the Blue Eagle raced through the gym, tossing out shirts to the most spirited. The opening act was the one and only, IHA Dance Team, who performed one of the dances that they did at their competition the past weekend. Following them, volunteers from each grade level choreographed their own dances to compete for the title. While the freshmen put up a good fight, Eliya Herriot’19 and Chloe Woznicki’19 still brought the win home for the senior class.

Following the performances was the tug-of-war competition. The first round, the sophomores took the hard earned victory against the freshmen. After them, the seniors managed to get the win, once again, putting them in the championship round against the sophomores. However, the senior class managed to pull through with the win in this competition also.

Lastly, there was a fruit roll-up eating competition, in which two girls had to work together to finish the sweet snack first. Bryn Bogan’19 and Alyssa Quicosa’19 were quick, and finished theirs in seconds, giving the seniors the last win of the night.

Closing up the night was once again, the IHA Dance Team performed their head turning dance to “Survivor.” The IHA community clapped and cheered their praises. The small, fluffy flurries falling outside added to the excitement and got the students cheering in anticipation of a desired snow day.
