Sacred Hearts Academy students enjoyed a week of activities and food celebrating its 104th birthday on Sept. 12.

The Student Council-planned activities involved students throughout the week.

Initiating the week-long celebration on Monday was Athletic Recognition Day when athletes wore their respective sports jerseys and team t-shirts honoring fall sports participants. Members of sports teams were recognized at morning flag raising.

“I loved sporting my Lancer volleyball shirt on Monday. It was also nice to see the wonderful turn out for our game against Punahou!” said junior Erica Freitas.

The Club Fair was held on Tuesday afternoon, an event giving students the chance to view the various clubs offered at school. As club members wore their club t-shirts, advisers worked to motivate students to join clubs through presentations and displays.

“The Club Fair was great because it was easier for students to sign up for clubs rather than having to sign up during lunch time throughout an entire week,” said junior Victoria Lee.

Students also showed Lancer pride by competing in a Door Decorating Contest, judged by a group of teachers. Homerooms were judged in three categories: best use of school colors, best use of the school logo and the overall best door. Jill Sprott’s senior homeroom won the award for the best door and received a complimentary breakfast from Student Council.

Thursday was the most enthusiastic day of the week as students flaunted school colors in a dress down day of yellow and gold while enjoying poi doughnuts at morning recess.

“The best part of Spirit Week was the doughnuts,” said junior Megan Garcia.

The Academy also successfully held its first-ever balloon drop at the Administration building during lunch. An array of 650 yellow and white balloons was released from the third floor, each balloon containing one raffle ticket. Each student received a raffle ticket in a drawing to win a prize the following day at the Spirit Week assembly.

Spirit Week concluded with a Friday afternoon assembly where St. Louis School’s Student Council was invited to participate in the assembly’s activities. Councils competed against each other in amusing games involving team-building activities and even high-heeled relays.

“The Student Council tried new things this year that involved a lot of student participation, it was one of the best spirit weeks we have had” said adviser Toni Normand.

Spirit Week 2013 was a fun-filled schedule of events creating school pride and uniting Lancer spirit.

“Thanks to the wonderful Student Council, Spirit Week was a near-perfect celebration,” said junior Nicole Sarmiento.
