St. John Bosco Academy participated in See You At The Pole, a global student-led movement held on the the fourth Wednesday of September each year.  Students in 7th & 8th grade organized this year's event and invited all students, teachers, and parents to pray a rosary around the flagpole.  The group prayed a patriotic rosary, with each of the 50 Hail Marys being said for a specific state and its residents.  After each decade a patriotic song was sung.  Students enjoyed honoring our country and praying for all those in office.

Laramie Richardson had a heck of a weekend at the last fall high school rodeos. She's entered in 5 events, each of the 3 days, 15 events over the weekend. Laramie finished strong gained a lot of confidence and points this fall. The next District 3 high school rodeo will be held in Cambridge April 15-16. Friday she placed in barrels, poles and goats. Saturday she won the barrels and poles and placed in the goats.  She also caught her steer in the team roping. On Sunday, she won the goats with a personal best and the breakaway and would've placed well in barrels and poles but received some penalties in the field.  Photos by Tobi Richardson .
