This year’s retreat was a great way for students to bond. One of the ways they bonded was with the class skits. These skit topics were chosen randomly and full of silly scenarios, such as zombies on a cruise with the Spanish dictionary. 

All of the classes got together in their respective grades and worked on the skit assigned to their class. It was a difficult time on the first day for everyone, with no one really knowing what to do, but soon ideas started popping up and everyone was talking. 

Senior Josh Giracca said that he could see gradual improvement by grade level and “there were no non-effort skits.” What makes a skit non-effort though? Could it be lack of participation, or could it be no thought? If just one student participates, is that enough to call it effortful? 

“Carrying it out was probably the best part,” Josh said. “It was the most fun and the skit turned out great.”

When he says carrying it out he means the skit being performed for the judges, a very rewarding process to some students from their work finally paying off.

Is this something that you find exciting, let us know in the comments! What part makes you want to join the activity, is it food, people, or even just getting to participate?
