Spring Week a Favorite NDA Tradition

Spring Week 2015 kicked off last Monday and concluded with the annual De la BaiFest celebration on Friday.  Student Government organizes and coordinates the week whose theme was “There’s No Place Like Home.”

A prayer service featuring senior Corrie Campion and her dad, John Campion,  personalized the work of Radiant Hope, an orphanage that cares for orphans and children with special needs. The Campions adopted Corrie from Radiant Hope when she was five months old.

A key fob in the shape of a house was available to purchase at the beginning of the week to help support Radiant Hope and enable students to dress down according to daily dress guidelines that emphasized the theme of the week.

“It’s a good thing to have fun while helping others and supporting Radian Hope,” said senior Bethany McCole.

Tuesday was Dress-as-Grandparents day, Wednesday was Wizard- of-Oz day, Thursday was Denim-out and Friday was still Spirit Day with the exception of wearing athletic shorts.

Spring Week is always a good and exciting week for everyone. The dodgeball tournament is a school favorite, and plenty of students stay and watch. For the 3-on-3 basketball the competition was intense.

“It’s a good way to end the school year with such a fun event with plenty of activities going on,” said junior Robert Petitjean.

“I love participating in the dodgeball tournament as our team has won it the past two years. It’s a great event,” said senior Ty Yewman.
