Last week was a busy one at St. Paul Prep, with all of our Holiday Spirit Week Dress-Up Days, basketball games, a SPP Night Out, and, of course, the Art and Talent Shows last Thursday!
Each day we awarded a prize to the “Best Dressed” of the themes. which included Pajama Day, Sport Day, Favorite Character Day, Career Day, and Christmas Day. Thanks to all the students who went above and beyond with their costumes!
The SPP/HSRA varsity and JV boys basketball teams had a monster week, picking up big wins in their first two home games of the season. The varsity squad trounced Minnesota Transitions Charter 85-42 on Tuesday, then upped the ante on Thursday with a 91-73 victory against Lincoln International. The JV team also had a huge week, posting wins of 44-12 and 67-4 (not a typo: 4 points)!
Students also had the chance to take in a Timberwolves game on Thursday evening. The hometown team gave our students a show, topping the Kings 119-96!
But the big event of the week was our Art and Talent Shows on Thursday, which was capped off with the traditional cake-eating contest. If you couldn’t make it to downtown St. Paul or you missed our live-stream of the event, you have some options to watch it! You can find the entire video on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel.
It was a crazy week at SPP, and now students are eagerly preparing for Winter Break! Hooray Falcons!
