Welcome home, Rockets! McNicholas celebrates Homecoming

McNicholas is excited to celebrate Homecoming this weekend! We will kick off the celebration with a Homecoming Field Day & Pep Rally on Friday, Oct. 8. 

Weather permitting, the pep rally will be held at Penn Station Stadium beginning at 9:45 a.m. Parents are welcome to join us; students will be dismissed at 11:15 a.m.

Sadly, due to a COVID cancellation, we are unable to play the Friday evening Homecoming football game. As such, there will be no on-campus activity on Friday evening.

All McNicholas students are invited to the Homecoming dance on Saturday, Oct. 9 from 8-11 p.m. at the Tri-State Warbird Museum Event Hangar located at 4021 Borman Drive, Batavia, Ohio 45103. The Homecoming King and Queen will be crowned at the dance.

Tickets are $15 each and include parking; ride sharing is encouraged. Tickets for the dance are available for purchase during lunch October 4-7 or online here. Ticket sales end at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 7; they will not be sold at the door.

Students are reminded that appropriate dress and behavior, as outlined in the Expectations for Homecoming Dance sent via email, are required. Masks are also required. Concessions will be available for purchase; cash only.

Congratulations to the members of the Homecoming Court.

    McNicholas students collect recycling

    Students in the Environmental Science classes are caring for God’s creation and learning about sustainability by taking responsibility for the school recycling program. Science teacher Mr. Eric Hickman jump started the program as part of his Environmental Science curriculum. “My goal for this class is to make students aware of environmental issues and empower them to be a part of the solutions,” Mr. Hickman said.

    Early IT contest winner holds up prize

    Congratulations to freshman Louis Smith and sophomores Eli Holland and Jonathan Byrum who earned top awards in University of Cincinnati’s Early IT Fall Competition. Louis won first place in the Programming category for his Java script program that helps builders to calculate construction costs. Eli and Jonathan, who took second place as a team in the Web Development category, were challenged to create an original website that highlights the UC Early IT Program at McNicholas. 

    Rockets enjoy Pumpkin STEM lab and creative fall fun

    McNicholas students celebrated fall and Halloween with pumpkins galore inside and outside the classroom! Mr. Steve Dalton's class participated in the yearly pumpkin catapult STEM lab, the English Department hosted a literary pumpkin decorating contest, and CREWs carved out some time for fun with their own contest.
