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.

Senior Athletes Farewell

Every year, in a school-wide celebration, Catholic High says thank you and good-bye to graduating athletes. Each Senior athlete receives flowers, balloons, and a spirit stick.
