After years of dedicated service as an extraordinary math teacher and assistant principal of St. Thomas, Ms. Halpin will be retiring at the end of this school year. A special mass was held at St. Thomas on Tuesday in celebration of her service. The combined school choir sang, and after mass the St. Mary of the Lake graduating class brought down the house with a rap they wrote about all the wonderful math knowledge they learned from Ms. Halpin. All classes did something special. Mrs. Brock's seventh grade rewrote "Uptown Funk" as "Math Will Make You Smart," a tribute to Ms. Halpin. They performed another song, "Eye of the Tiger," also rewritten as a tribute. According to Mr. Esaias, they brought down the house!
