Today Archbishop Williams High School displayed some extra Irish spirit. If you looked close enough, the school building cast a bright green hue in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
With a Green and White dress down day, the students and staff celebrated all things Green, Irish, Celtics, Boston and St. Patrick. Commented AWHS Principal, Dr. Michael Volonnino, “Today we celebrate not only green candy, shamrocks, great music and food, but we commemorate the holy celebration of Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity to Ireland. Our students and staff have exhibited a great enthusiasm today.” Volonnino added, “From Sister Mary’s class showing a film about St. Patrick, to Mr. Curley’s, Ms. Mariano’s and Ms. Roach’s classes, among many others, decked out in their finest green attire, the students and staff took advantage of the opportunity to show their green spirit.”
Famous Mathematicians from history (AP Calculus students dressed up in costume) also visited Mrs. Skill’s class making the green and white dress down day also a day for some Seniors to show their appreciation to the famous minds in the area of math. Green paint was not forgotten today either, as some students in Mr. Coughlin’s Art Class painted patterned canvases with green oils.
Even though there wasn't a rainbow or pot of gold found inside AWHS, the spirit and celebration of this special day was more than evident in the halls of Archbishop Williams.
