Mater Dei recently had their annual Greek Week which had ton of activities for all classes to participate and build their school spirit. The short week of just 3 days kicked off on with a 10 minute play on the Trojan War. The honors freshman class had the honor to perform this play at lunch while the school watched and ate. The play is always a great experience for the freshman, Mrs. Kelleher organizer of Greek Week and English teacher says “it is a rite of passage because of the shy freshman who are forced to act in a whole school play, and when they survive it, it gives strength to the freshman, comfortability. There is no more shy freshman.”
The next day the seniors were out offering Greek food as there was many Greek inspired student projects to browse at lunch. Sophomore Jasmine Adamos said, “The posters were informative and the Greek food, pita chips and hummus was really good.”
On the last day there was games and competitions open to all the school, activities like tug-o-war and water balloon tossing. Bob the security guard was dressed up Dionysus a Greek God while he MC’d. Sophomore Jordan Salewsky said, “The water balloon toss was my favorite event, it was very exciting to watch the anticipation of the other students.”
