Mr. Zielinski, one of the club moderators and coaches, said, “The return of warm weather this spring only meant one thing…the return of Ultimate Frisbee, and Ms. Sullivan […]

 In the start to the second semester, Edmund Rice Camp is looking forward to starting their fundraising campaign, one gummy bear at a time.

Edmund Rice Camp is an annual tradition at Brother Rice, which serves many kids of neighboring communities by giving them a free summer camp year after year.

Due to unexpected circumstances this past year, fundraising has been especially difficult for Edmund Rice Camp. However, the student leadership team is optimistic for a smooth and successful season of fundraising.

On Sunday, Oct. 4, Brother Rice hosted its first open house of the year, allowing 7th and 8th graders to capture a glimpse of what a day in the life of a Crusader is truly like. 

Although the event ran smoothly, there were significant changes compared to past open houses, due to COVID.

This year’s open house was much smaller compared to prior years. Many traditional open house demonstrations were limited or outright canceled, making it especially difficult to host a successful event.

Mr. Greg Nye, the director of the Admissions […]
