ÒRosarian WeekÓ Tradition Ends with a Mission Day Filled with Spirit
A rainbow of color blanketed Rosarian AcademyÕs cpus on Friday, October 9, 2015, as students ended the celebration of ÒRosarian WeekÓ with a Mission Day, or Field Day.
Clad wildly from head to toe in their te colorsÑRed, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink, Purple, Black &p; WhiteÑ, fifth-through-eighth-grade students competed in athletic events, such as: relay races, basketball, volleyball, dance, capture the flag, hula hoop, and bocce ball. This year, the Purple Te took first place with 175 points, just three points ahead of the Green TeÕs 172-point finish. Following close behind, Red finished with 170 points and Orange with 169 points. Although the tes competed to showcase the first place trophy in their te leaderÕs classroom, the focus of Field Day was on good sportsmanshipÑbeing Òathletes of Christ,Ó like St. Dominic.
Members of the Purple Te and eighth graders, Lily and Daisy Cook, have attended Rosarian since the toddler progr and shared what it meant to them to win Field Day.
