This Catholic Spirit Week , the Student Council put together a fantastic array of activities . We had Twin Day and Career Day for the middle school , Crazy Accessories for the lower school , Crazy Hair Day for the entire school , and root beer floats for everybody ! There was also a seminarian , or as some of the little kids would say , cemitarian , who gave a beautiful talk to all the staff and students . Of course S . T . U . C . O wouldn ’ t leave out the teachers , so there was teacher coffee cart and all the teachers got coffee and ( possibly ) some sweet treat served by the Form V . I am new to the school , and overall I think it was amazing . I would like to give a shout out to all the people who made this possible . Thank you !
THE ST . AUSTIN ANNUAL CHRISTMAS CONCERT
By Payton Buck
The Christmas Concert this year was terrific . The students sang lots of great songs , like “ Christmas Canon ,” while Amelie Vogt from Form IV accompanied them on the cello . The lower school sang “ Don ’ t Eat a Poinsettia ” with a surprise performance from Matthew McBride and Natalie O ’ Brien trying to eat the poinsettia . In the old favorite “ Good King Wenceslas ,” Thomas Lattanzi and Will Jacob were soloists as the king and page . The whole night was fantastic ! Thank you Mrs . Kenney for all your hard work .

MIDDLE SCHOOL TRIVIA NIGHT
Middle school students who attended the STUCO-hosted trivia night had a blast ! Held in our very own cafeteria , the rounds , like “ Name that Face ,” “ Around St . Louis ,” “ Theme Songs ,” and more , included both easy and mind-boggling questions to thoroughly test students ’ knowledge of many different topics . Five different tables contested against each other with classmates or invited friends to make a competitive yet fun evening for everyone . All tables gave a valiant try , but in the end Gregory Davis , Max Baumgartner , and a friend won the first prize of Chik-Fil-A gift cards , while Abigail and Thomas Schwarb , a friend , and Carolina Rivero won second prize of jars filled with candy . Also competitive that evening , Alive or Dead appeared as a solo game with the high stakes of a $ 5 Snack Cart gift card . Everyone gave their best , but Gregory Davis won at last ! Congratulations to all who tried !
