PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Congrats to the varsity girls’ basketball team as they won the Our Lady of Sorrows Thanksgiving Tournament defeating Our Lady of Sorrows on their home court in the championship game. The girls also picked up a win over Our Lady of the Lakes and St. Pat’s. Several of our other Viking teams did well in their Thanksgiving tournament games. It should be a great season for our Viking hoops teams!

Great job to the Girls on the Run and a special thank you to Chelsea Estes, Megan Fleischer, Patrick Brogan and Ann Bartoli for their work with this great group of girls. The following girls were in the program: Katelyn Morgan, Emily Seifert, Julie Triculescu, Christianna Fakouri, Sydney Burke, Elle Ervin, Kaylie Lewis, Rafaella Saba, Maggie Scott, Jazzelle Yaldo, Rachel Royer, Meredith Herman and Annalisa Bortolotti. Many of the group braved the elements and ran a 5k at Belle Isle last Sunday. The girls learned many important life skills and got some great exercise.

It was good to see several classes working together before the Thanksgiving break. The 5th grade class did an outstanding job helping the kindergarten class with their reading, writing and drawing. The 5th grade started the day leading their kindergarten buddies over to church and also concluded the day eating together. During Halloween the 8th grade instead of doing a party of their own threw a party for their younger classmates. It has been great to see how well the older students support the younger students at St. Hugo of the Hills!

The Mission of St. Hugo of the Hills School is to provide students with an educational experience in which the teachings of the Catholic faith are instilled, nurtured, and demonstrated. These teachings constitute an integral part of the school’s academic program and the St. Hugo community. Strengthened by the values inherent in these teachings, students and staff are challenge to live with the conviction that, as followers of Jesus, it must be different with us.
