Instrument petting zoo at St. Peter School

"Catholic Schools: Faith, Academics, Service" is the theme of this years Catholic Schools Week. In honor of this national celebration, Catholic Schools throughout Quincy are have events to promote this years theme.

Thursday Quincy Notre Dame High School band members held an instrument petting zoo at St. Peter School.

QND band members gave kids at St. Peter School tips on how to play different types of musical instruments including the drums, flute, saxophone, clarinet, and trumpet.

Their goal was not only to have fun, but to increase interest in band at an early age.

Staff and students were excited about Thursday's event and for what is to come the rest of this week.

QND Sophomore Ellie Kasparie said her favorite part of the week is dressing up and this year she dressed up as a pirate. Kasparie said, "I love all of the costumes. It is really fun and really interesting to see everyone and to see what they dressed up as."

St. Peter School 5th grader Konner Schuckman said, "I can't wait till tomorrow because we have electronics day. So then we get to bring electronics and use them during the day."

Students at St. Peter School dressed up as what they want to be when they grow up. Konner dressed up as a marine biologist.

The annual celebration concludes on February 5th.
