Catholic Schools Week 2014

This week is Catholic Schools Week around the country.  This week is set apart to celebrate Catholic schools and their spiritual and academic contributions to our nation's children.  Each school marks the week differently and we decide to honor a different group of our school community each day.

Monday, January 27: Honoring our parents
We passed out coffee and donuts this morning to parents as they dropped off their children.  We are also hosting coffee and donuts in Campus Ministry for any parents who wish to stop by and spend time with other parents

Tuesday, January 28: Honoring our students
Today is a dress down day for students and they will be able to make their own sundaes in the cafe during lunch.  We will also have morning prayer at 7:30am for the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, the patron saint of students followed by donuts in Campus Ministry

Wednesday, January 29: Honoring our community
There is a fire station next to our school and we will bring chicken tenders over to them to thank them for keeping us safe

Thursday, January 30: Honoring our faculty and staff
Today is a dress down day only for teachers and lunch will be provided for them

Friday, January 31: Honoring our God
Father John Bucchino, OFM will celebrate our Catholic Schools Week liturgy to conclude our week.

We are also doing two acts of mercy this week.  Hunter Hannon '16 and his mother are traveling to Honduras next month to spend performing works of mercy.  We will be collecting items for them to bring down with them to give to the people.  Also, the home of Natasha Cote '14 was destroyed in a fire last week so we will have a special dress down day on Wednesday to raise funds for her family.
