The Second Annual Superhero Day at All Saints Academy-St. Joseph took place April 27. The students were encouraged to dress up in superhero costumes, bought or homemade, based on their individual strengths and “super powers.” The students participated in cup stacking, hula hooping and jump-roping contests. They also enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon of games, crafts and activities within the superhero theme. The day’s sponsored organization was the Epilepsy Foundation, and students and families contributed donations. Lori Braegelmann from the Epilepsy Foundation educated third- through sixth-grade students about epilepsy. Nikki Klohr, a person with epilepsy, shared about her experiences with her service dog, Lacey.
