Steel & Garnet Day Kicks Off Cavalier Competition
Cavalier Day is one of our favorite traditions at the College, a chance for the entire community to come together in a social environment of fun and games. Seeing the way our high school students take on leadership roles and how their younger Girardian brothers and sisters look up to them is something special indeed.
Originally scheduled for Thursday, October 8, Cavalier Day will be rescheduled for the spring when conditions will hopefully permit all of us to gather together.
However, the faculty and staff wanted to ensure that students both on campus and at home could have a fun day full of school spirit. Enter Steel & Garnet Day, which combined in-person and virtual events to kick off a year-long Cavalier Competition.
Students in Grades 1-3 who are learning in-person this quarter were able to participate in a variety of fun games like Zombie Tag, Giant Tic Tac Toe, Foot Races and more! All equipment was sanitized between rounds as the students rotated through the stations. It was a beautiful day made even more so by the children’s smiles and laughter.
Remote students were challenged to submit their best team spirit photos wearing team colors. All points earned through both in-person and virtual activities were recorded and will be used as the starting point for a full-blown Cavalier Day in the spring. As more classes come back to campus throughout the year, there will be additional opportunities for students to earn points for their team!
Special thanks to Mr. Bobowski, Mr. Turner and Ms. Clark for their planning and all the faculty and staff who supervised and cheered on our students!
