May the Fourth at St. Theresa's

May the Fourth at St. Theresa's
Posted on 05/06/2016
STHOn Wednesday, May the fourth, St.Theresa’s Catholic High School in Midland was transformed into a Star Wars fun-house. To celebrate national Star Wars day, St.Theresa’s was decorated with starry banners, posters quoting “May the fourth be with you”, and many more fun activities for both staff and students to enjoy.

May the fourth is an undeclared, but insanely popular holiday, celebrated by fans around the world as Star Wars day. The day roots from the iconic line from the Star Wars movies, “May the force be with you,” which is a phrase used to wish a certain person or group goodwill or good luck.

As students arrived to St.Theresa’s in the morning, they were greeted by Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader at the main entrance to the school. Balloons, posters and banners were hung around the main foyer. Interactive activities were set up throughout the school, like a banner in which students could be the characters of Star Wars. Also, to test your knowledge of Star Wars, a Kahoot game was offered during both junior and senior lunches.

For lunch, the cafeteria offered an abundance of Star Wars themed foods. Staff and students could munch on Yoda Ears (perogies), Jabba the Hutt Dog (hot dogs), and Vader Taters (tater tots.)

It was a fun-filled day for staff and students alike, and everyone is excited for the next Star Wars day. Those at St.Theresa’s wish everyone a great day and may the force be with you!
