Jr High Award Night

All of the end of the school year activities are one right after another.  One night we attended the Junior High Awards Night.  This was a night to recognize the 7th & 8th Grade students for their academic and athletic achievements for the year.
 First up were the silver & gold academic awards for the 7th & 8th Grade.  A silver award is a 93-94% average for all four quarters.  A gold award is a 95% or higher for all four quarters.  Cara received a silver award which was awesome!  She has had to work hard this year balancing homework with sports and having the transition to the junior high.  It has been a work in progress and she has gotten better as the year as gone along.
Cara received athletic participation certificates for volleyball, basketball and track.  She voted by her peers as the "best hustler" in volleyball.  Other volleyball awards included:  Emma was voted the "MVP", Charli the "most spirited", McKinzie the "most improved" and Bree the "most coachable".
Assistant Principal, Mr. Hale, may had said it best when he gave his closing remarks at the end of the evening.  He told the kids that the students at Norfolk Catholic are probably most known for their athletic achievements.  But then he added that if people could see how many of those athletes also achieved academic success they would be impressed.  He congratulated them on their dedication to being successful at both.
Take care,


  1. Way to go, Cara! That rocks! You must be one proud mama!

  2. Congrats Cara! Way to go -- it's a tricky balance of sports and academics!
