National Honors Society Induction

On Nov. 4, at a ceremony in room 113, juniors and seniors were accepted into NHS.  This national organization has the pillars of service, leadership, scholarship, and character.  New members read essays they wrote for their application based on these four pillars, and a reception followed.


The musical love story, Brigadoon was preformed on Nov. 20 and 21 after weeks of dedicated practicing. The stars of the show were Emily Bochenek ’16, Aileen Stanton ’16, and Peter Merikoski ’16 from New Trier.

Thanksgiving Prayer Service

On Nov. 24, the Regina community gathered to acknowledge all cultures and their celebratory traditions. This was demonstrated through prayer, reflections, and dance. This prayer service made it clear that we are very  blessed to have such a diverse community here at Regina.

Raffle Free Day

Way to go Reginites! Students got Nov. 30 off because the raffle fundraising goal was met.  The Panther Patio has already started to be constructed from these funds, and the new ping pong tables can be seen in the caf.
