AUBURN — St. Dom’s invited the sixth- and seventh-grade classes of Trinity Catholic School to participate in a step-up day on March 31. These students will enter the seventh and eighth grades in the fall of 2010 at St. Dominic Academy.
The step-up day provided the future students with an opportunity to get many of their questions answered and to see what it will be like to be a part of the St. Dominic family.
Their day started off celebrating Mass in the Commons with Bishop Richard Malone and the entire St. Dom’s student body. After Mass, the students gathered in the library to watch a short video on student life at the school along with several St. Dom’s Student Ambassadors who served as their guides for the day.
Each student was given a St. Dominic Academy T-shirt, which they wore for the rest of their visit. The Trinity Catholic students participated in some team-building activities in the gym before visiting the classrooms.
The junior high students separated into groups and were given a glimpse of what goes on in the classrooms at St. Dom’s. They performed chemistry and physics experiments as well as an art project. Some students had the chance to participate in a computer programming class where they had the opportunity to design a computer game. They wrapped up their day with lunch with the current freshman class in the St. Dom’s Commons.
