There will be no classes at St. Lawrence during the festivals in order to recognize student accomplishments. On Saturday, April 29, Moving-Up Day celebrated student achievements in academics and co-curricular activities as well as a symbolic “moving-up” of students to seats vacated by students a year ahead of them.
