Brightly colored braces, budding acne, and the fashion sense of a deranged toddler; middle school was a bit of a freak show no matter where you went. But, there are a few things that create a solidarity between all of those who attended a K-8 Catholic school.

1. Obscure rules

Whether it was being required to wear 90% white shoes or having a seating chart in the lunch room, it always befuddled anyone in the public school system. And, honestly, it befuddled you too.

2. Stations of the Cross performances

This was the best part of the Lenten season. Who knew first graders could act so well?

3. Being upset about not having a 5th-grade graduation

Even though we didn’t change schools like our counterparts but moving into middle school was still a big deal!

4. … but receiving sacraments were like little graduations

The entire grade was together, wearing ceremonial outfits in a coming of age event, sounds like pomp and circumstance to me! Especially confirmation.

5. Going to Skutt and Prep Football games

Everyone spent at least one fall Friday night standing slightly outside the stadium in horrible outfits running from one cluster of tweens to the next.

6. Weekly Mass and Liturgy Music Practice

It was like a second music class and sometimes we had a special uniform for such occasions.

7. There was no better time than Catholic Schools Week

Red ribbon week who?? We celebrated with a whole week of free dress, and nothing is better than that!
