Holy Ghost Catholic School in Hammond held its quarterly Awards Day ceremonies, new to the school this year, on Oct. 26.

The ceremonies, one for fifth- through eighth-graders and one for first- through fourth-graders, recognized students who earned the distinction of Patriots’ List (A/B honor roll) and Principal’s List (all-A honor roll). Each student received a personalized certificate from the HGCS Alumni Club and a gift certificate to Raising Cane’s.

After the ceremonies, students signed one of the banners in the gym, displayed to remind the students to always strive to do their best, a news release said.
