From Cracked Eggs to Crosswords, Students and Faculty Have Fun on Community Day

Regians join Mr. David Grunner '05 (not pictured) to tackle the New York Times' daily crossword puzzle.

How to Crack a Few Eggs. The Tuesday New York Times Crossword. Who Has the Cutest Dog?

These are just three of the wonderfully random and entertaining sessions offered during Regis’ virtual Community Day on Tuesday, March 30. Designed to give faculty and students a break from remote instruction, the day, which was inspired by a similar one at Fairfield Prep, also allowed students to virtually socialize with their classmates and teachers outside the realm of formal academic work.

While many faculty members led or attended discussions, they were free to participate as much or as little as they wanted. Similarly, students were not required to attend any sessions.

“While we are pleased with how relatively smoothly the transition to remote instruction has gone, the last few weeks have been a trying and stressful time for everyone in our community,” Regis Principal Fr. Anthony Andreassi, CO, said. “Community Day gave us all an opportunity to catch our collective breath and have a little fun. I’m grateful to all who participated and made the day so enjoyable.”
