Over the past 65+ years, many traditions have developed that are uniquely 'Regina.' In addition to dances, field trips, dramatic productions, and other events, students eagerly anticipate special activities at each grade level.
Freshman and New Student Induction
The entire school body and faculty formally welcome all new freshmen and transfer students to the Regina High School family! The Regina history and traditions are explained and the entire Regina community sings our school song "Regina Mundi!"
Big/Little Sister Program
Our incoming freshmen (little sisters) are paired with seniors (big sisters) to mentor them as they embark upon their high school years. This relationship begins at the Big Sister/Little Sister breakfast and is carried on throughout the year as well as years to follow!
Seniors cement their unity by coming together as a team to play our rival, Marian High School, in one game of flag football. The tradition is a whole weekend of celebration from the Powderpuff rally, in which the entire school participates, to the BIG game and Regina's homecoming.
Catholic Schools Week / Spirit Week
Sponsored by NCEA, Catholic Schools Week is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. During this week, we attend Holy Mass and focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to Church, local communities, and the nation. We also celebrate this week as Spirit Week! Our Regina Student Council hosts festivities such as theme days, hallway decorations, and the Spirit Week Games which is a chance for the student body to show their spirit and compete in athletic events with the chance to earn bragging rights!
Sophomores expand their class identity by choosing their class colors, mascot, flower, motto, patron, and song. These identifiers become a significant part of their senior year experience throughout Powderpuff and even graduation.
Junior Ring Ceremony
Juniors are honored as upper-classwomen by celebrating Holy Mass and the blessing and presentation of their class rings.
Students show off their talents in our annual show. All look forward to the teacher’s skit that usually steals the show!
Eucharistic and Peer Ministers
Students take on this important role as young, Christian women who guide and mentor others in the Franciscan tradition. Eucharistic Ministers distribute Communion during school masses.
