Let’s have a picnic!

For the second year in a row, Cristo Rey Jesuit’s parent association threw us a picnic, which we enjoyed one day in May before our seniors left us and exams had been taken. The picnic was held at one of our favorite places — Utz Twardowicz Field in Patterson Park. And it was a beautiful day.

We got to hang out with friends.

And a few of our alumni!

We played soccer, football, and dodgeball, as well as ran races. Our faculty and staff even challenged the CRJ softball team to a game. It didn’t look so promising for the teachers and their teammates as they trailed the Lady Hornets in the first part of the game. But they came back and won the match-up.

We needed a little of this.

And some of that.

In high school, students often find that life can tug them in different directions. It can be good to take a break from the day-to-day academic rigors and get pulled toward fun.

So, thank you, parents, for cooking for us,

for letting us be silly,

We are very grateful!
