8th Grade Retreat

 

This past week, our 8th Graders went on a retreat off campus at Valley Camp in North Bend. The students met with Sister Liz, who hosted the retreat.

 
 

We worked on teamwork and community building activities, such as completing a puzzle and learning square dancing. Our students also spent time in prayer and connecting with Jesus.

One of the big focuses of 8th grade is effective leadership. During the retreat, they set aside time to reflect on how they can be strong leaders as the oldest class at school, and how they as leaders can facilitate teamwork and a sense of community at St. Joseph.

We are so proud of our 8th grade class, and look forward to see how they grow as leaders in our school this year!
