I couldn’t stop moving my legs when I was standing watching the puck drop. It’s as if they had a mind of their own and it was out of my control. My stomach felt like it was going to just quit on me and I was unable to get rid of the butterflies. I paused and lifted my head to see the other team already dominating in our zone. These were the games we lived for, catholic versus public schools. There is no better feeling in the world than knowing that as a public school, you can skate and compete with…

    I like to sing and I like to watch my friends perform too, and at Holy Family Catholic School, we have all our pep rallies and talent shows in three different rooms instead of just one room particularly for that. If we had one single room, we could add chairs instead of sitting on the floor. We could add stage lights so we can add more drama. We can also make the room much bigger, and I feel it would be great if Holy Family Catholic School could add an auditorium. First, we could add…
