As the school year comes to end, Loretto seniors and juniors anticipate memorable activities and ceremonies like prom, NHS inductions, and last but not least, Ring Rose.
Ring Rose is a ceremony in which juniors hand a senior a rose, which signifies the end of their years at Loretto but the continuation of the sisterhood.
The seniors hand the juniors their class ring, which symbolizes their transition to becoming the new leaders and role models of Loretto.
This was a day on which the upperclassmen bid each other farewell.
Last year, Ring Rose was celebrated outside in the hot sun due to the extreme spread of the Coronavirus.
This year, students and families were able to celebrate this joyous event the traditional way.
This means that the entire high school was able to witness a bittersweet transition for both seniors and juniors.
There was a lot of preparation for this ceremony this year, especially with the dress code.
It was mandatory for students to send a picture of their dress to their homeroom teachers, along with a photo of their heels.
The faculty did this to ensure that the dress code was being followed and that the students were dressing modestly.
The junior speech, which was given by Vice President, Emilia Garcia, and President, Jayne Nowak, was full of memorable events and topics that showed everyone how ready they are to become seniors.
The seniors’ speech given by Vice President, Paula Sanchez, and President, Carolina Benitez, was bittersweet and unforgettable.
Senior Margarita Alonso said, “ As I approach the end of my senior year at Loretto, I can’t help but think about all of the memories and friendships that I was able to create, and that is something that will act as my guide everywhere I go.”
This event at Loretto has been treasured over the years and greatly symbolizes a sisterhood that will never be broken.
