Junior Recognition Day
Dear Parents and Members of the Class of 2020:
On Friday, April 26th, we will celebrate our annual JUNIOR RECOGNITION DAY. This is a day in which we, the school administration, faculty, staff and student community render special recognition to the members of the Junior Class. It is unique, as no other school in the State of Indiana honors its Juniors with a special day.
Our traditional Recognition Day began in 1966 with Bishop Dwenger’s first Junior Class and has continued to today. This year’s event will consist of a Mass of Celebration honoring the Junior Class, gathering for a class photo and attending a buffet breakfast catered by The Orchid in the SAC beginning at 7:30 am. As you, the Class of 2020, approach your final year in your Catholic high school career, we pray you will assume the responsibility with joy, gladness and the highest plane of Christian witness and leadership within the faith community at Bishop Dwenger High School.
Previous Junior classes have realized how special this day is and have respected it with the knowledge that classes to follow should also have such a day of honor. We ask this Junior Class to do the same. Treat this day with respect and with class. Remember, at Mass you are the focus of attention. The rest of the student body will follow your lead. Please set a good example by showing respect for your Faith, yourself, family, and school. Please participate fully in Mass.
Parents, since you have provided your children with an education vital and essential in their growth and development as “Citizens of Two Worlds,” the school administration cordially invites you to share in this Eucharistic celebration. The liturgy will be celebrated at 9:55 am that day in the school gym. Please come if you can. Use the main entrance of the gym -- a student usher will direct you to the section reserved for the parents. After Mass, there will be a group picture in the SAC gym. Students are allowed to leave after the class picture.
A word to the Juniors: Please be aware that the rules of Bishop Dwenger are in effect for all the school-sponsored activities that day. Do not jeopardize your reputation and hard work by making poor choices. Most Junior classes before you have cared enough about the upcoming classes to respect this day and treat it with CLASS. We expect the same from you and know that you will do so.
