Our newest Caseys were formally and officially welcomed in RBC tradition during the annual Freshman Convocation ceremony yesterday. Although the look and feel was a bit different, this time honored tradition kept to its roots in formally installing the freshman class into the Casey family. The event was held in the Eck Student Center and begun with the Liturgical Dance group performing to Beyonce's version of Ave Maria, led by instructor Mrs. Kelly Gemellaro. After welcome remarks by Mr. Abatemarco that included a brief history of the school, students were treated to a slideshow of their first few days as Caseys.
Even though the students were unable to gather in the church, School Director and Pastor Monsignor Rosie was on hand to provide a special blessing for the class. Finally, Associate Principal Mrs. Karen Falco led the Class of 2024 in the recitation of the Honor Pledge as students were officially pinned with a green shamrock. Since the parents were unable to attend, the event was recorded and will be sent for them to view.
