It’s an annual event that is highly anticipated by Notre Dame School students – The Jesuit Spring Games! On Friday, May 11, over 100 Notre Dame School students enjoyed a windy day on the athletic fields of Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas. Small groups were formed to play a variety of games such as Frisbee, parachuting, Velcro toss, and limbo. All games were appropriately staged for students with special needs.
“Our students have the opportunity to bond with many Jesuit seniors when they volunteer in our classrooms. The Jesuit Spring Games are a fun culmination of the school year. It’s an opportunity for our students to take a field trip to Jesuit and have a day of fun that is designed for them,” said Carmen Fernandez, Assistant Principal. “We really appreciate the time and energy that Jesuit puts into this day.”
Jesuit seniors ran the games and participated with the students. The eventsconcluded with a pizza lunch.
