The Tablet Staff

The teachers, faculty, staff and students of St. Anselm Catholic Academy, Bay Ridge, came to school with their orange Spirit Day 2019 t-shirts May 24, and the excitement was palpable. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade walked to the St. Anselm baseball field under the supervision of teachers, parent volunteers, crossing guards and police officers from the NYPD’s 68th Precinct. Once they reached the field, the good times began – a morning of fun and games in celebration of Spirit Day. Activities included football, volleyball, hula- hoops, tug-of-war, sack races, parachute activities and dancing to favorites such as “Macarena” and “Cotton Eye Joe” spun by a DJ.
