At our Soph Hop, Hallahan Sophomore girls get to dress up, socialize and party the night away at their very own dance! Our girls enjoy creating a cool theme and showing their school spirit by keeping the Hallahan sisterhood center stage. All of our Sophomore students excitingly attend this lively and fun event, either solo or with a date, it doesn't matter. Dancing to songs from their favorite DJ and taking crazy looking and fun filled photos in our new state of the art "igloo" Photo Booth, our Sophomore girls have a blast! It's a fun experience that's just for Sophomores!


Junior Ring Dance

Each year, Juniors are provided with a beautifully spiritual Ring Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. On the Friday following their Ring Mass our Junior girls get to celebrate! Juniors dress up and partake in their very own Ring Dance, to acknowledge their rite of passage! Either with or without a date, Juniors dance the night away and take wacky photos in our new state of the art "igloo" Photo Booth. At the conclusion of the Ring Dance, Juniors commemorate the historical significance of joining next year's senior class; honored to be en route to graduating from the First Catholic Girls' High School in the world. Juniors create a circle, holding hands on the dance floor to sing our historically significant Alma Mater. What an honor!
