Senior to Senior Ball

February 15, 2018

In an annual tradition, seniors at Bishop Kearney and seniors at one local retirement community came together for the Senior to Senior Ball.

Seniors from Bishop Kearney’s National Honors Society traveled to St. Ann’s Community for the event, where they danced, socialized and participated in activities throughout the afternoon.

The event is the culmination of a two-month fundraising effort by the students who raised enough money to purchase carnations and other gifts for each resident.

“My definition of old has really changed,” says Jackie Giacovelli, a senior at Bishop Kearney, “There’s some people who are in their late 90’s, and they are still full of life and energy and they don’t even need to be here, but they are, and it’s so inspiring and I want to like that.”

This was the 23rd annual Senior to Senior Ball. Bishop Kearney is proud to partner with St. Ann’s on inter-generational programming across all grade levels.  The local evening news spotlighted this wonderful tradition:

Soup-er Bowl a Success

February 2, 2018

Bishop Kearney held it’s 2nd annual Soup-er Bowl this week in the cafeteria. Students and faculty brought in soup cans and other canned goods to help feed the hungry. Soup cans were placed on either the Eagles or Patriots table, the table with the most cans is the presumptive winner of the real Super Bowl.  The results of the BK Soup-er Bowl were quite clear based on soup cans:

EAGLES  375     PATRIOTS 3

All goods collected will be donated to feed the hungry. Bishop Kearney proudly follows Christ’s example to help the poor and hungry in our community.
