Pacelli, Lyle celebrate Flurry Week

Published 7:42 am Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Students of Pacelli and Lyle high schools enjoyed their own version of “Punxsutawney Phil” last week with Flurry Week, a way of encouraging the winter flurries to fly away and to celebrate the nearing end of winter.

Lyle students joined Pacelli in Austin for a few games of dodgeball and a pizza luncheon on Friday, concluding with a pep fest. The fun included the making of paper airplanes (blindfolded), Saran wrap relay races, to name just a few events. Students competed as grades rather than schools.

The winner was the class of 2018, of course, who took a strong lead and finished on top.
