Over the 2-day stretch of May 19-May 20, Kellenberg’s Junior Spirit Days were held for the school’s 11th grade. It was a great mix between fun and faith, and represented a proverbial “passing of the torch”, as the juniors became the school’s most senior grade.
On the first day, the entire junior class boarded busses to go visit Adventureland, a popular amusement park in East Farmingdale. Kellenberg rented out the entire park for the day, meaning that only students and faculty were present, with no outsiders.
The Junior class arrived at Adventureland early in the morning and had the entire length of the school day to enjoy with their friends. They had full access to all rides and games and were given lunch.
On May 20, Kellenberg’s annual tradition of the May Crowning was held. The juniors were the class chosen to be able to witness the event live outside. Asked about the event, Junior Nick Xhindolli said, “It was nice to have a live spiritual event, and to see people from other cohorts.”
Finally, following the Crowning, the juniors were treated to a field day held at Kellenberg, filled with outdoor activities such as volleyball and tug-of-war, won by Mr. Miles’ homeroom cohort 11A.
Overall, it was a great 2 days to celebrate the students who will be the leaders of the school next year.
