On Friday, October 31, the sophomore class had their day of reflection. The sophomore day of reflection took place at the Mother house, Sister of Charity. The girls were split up into different groups with their senior leaders to begin their day. Sophomore day of reflection is a completely different and unique experience here at Seton. Normally, the students spend the day reflecting on God and doing good services. Instead, sophomore day of reflection concentrates on the students. The theme for the sophomore’s day of reflection was “be unique” and the discovery of what makes each of them unique.

As the students go into sophomore year, everything changes. The girls are no longer new to Seton, form new friendships, and are taking harder classes. Going into second year of high school is the breaking point where the girls start to find themselves. Before the day of reflection began, the teachers were asked to write something about how each girl is unique. Teachers wrote simple compliments such as hard worker, determined, friendly, and energetic. Sophomore Allie Pangallo says, “It was a cool experience to see what the teachers thought what made us unique and special.” Shortly after reading compliments from teachers, the small groups and their leaders had the time to reflect, as a group. During the reflection time, small groups participated in an activity of making bracelets. Each bead on the bracelet had different colors which symbolized different meanings. For example, red symbolized determination.

After the sophomores returned from their small groups, they reflected upon the day as a class. The day ended with Mass. Many students enjoyed the day of reflection and viewing themselves as unique and special.
