Seniors Reflect on Most Meaningful Ravenscroft Events
Ravenscroft Communications

We asked the Class of 2021 to tell us what events from their time at Ravenscroft have been most important or made the biggest impact on them.

We asked the Class of 2021’s advisories to tell us what events from their time at Ravenscroft have been most important or made the biggest impact on them. We then used those responses to create a senior survey, in which we asked participants to pick their Top 5 from the list. Here are the results, based on votes from 40 seniors.

We asked survey participants: Please share a reflection on a particular event, tradition or memory that was especially meaningful to you. Here are some highlights.

Special Olympics is one event that I will always remember when looking back at my time at Ravenscroft. The goal of Special Olympics for Ravenscroft students is to help the athletes feel comfortable and confident in every event to ensure you make their day amazing. I, however, believe Special Olympics has the ability to make everyone’s day better and brighter. The athletes have the kindest hearts and most beautiful minds and we are fortunate to be at a school that gave us the opportunity to be a part of it!

Student involvement in supporting the Special Olympics games held on campus, as shown here in the 2019 yearbook, has made for many good memories.

Newly arrived in Middle School, members of the Class of 2021 show their school spirit at the fall pep rally.

The pep rallies were definitely the things I looked forward to every year.

Pep rallies were always a big deal! In my past five years of being on the JV and varsity teams, pep rally was the most fun and most stressful event we had in a year. Planning the dance, the stunts and the cheers took so much time, we had to start months in advance to be prepared. Even though some things may have not gone to plan every year, it was still a valuable experience that I would never give up. Losing the pep rallies from this past year has really opened my eyes to how much I love cheer and how much fun I’ve had while being on the team.

As members of a three-season squad, varsity cheerleaders made many moments special, including the fall pep rally captured in the 2020 Corvus.

The 2013-14 Lower School Battle of the Books team celebrates a successful year of competition in this photo from the 2014 Corvus.

I'll never forget learning about teamwork through Battle of the Books in fourth through eighth grade.

Powder Puff was so much fun!!

Even when wrestling under COVID protocols, the varsity team dominated their season, with seven athletes winning conference championships.

The varsity sports matches were my favorite above all else. Wrestling for Coach Cummings for the past six years was my most favorite part of school in general. I got to meet a lot of people through wrestling and made many friends through the program.
