National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Schools typically observe National Catholic Schools Week with masses, open house and other activities for students and families. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2015 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”
The Activities for 2015 CSW are: Monday: Class Color Retreat Day: Students wear their class colors and have classroom retreats to focus on faith development and community building.
Tuesday: College/Career Day: Students wear uniforms or college or selected professional career outfits on which they prepare an oral report. The purpose is to focus on academics and further investigation of higher education and career opportunities. Students participate in school-wide spelling bee.
Wednesday: My Saint Day: Students select their favorite saint and then prepare a written project/report which they present in the classroom. The purpose is to focus on services and sacrifices that were offered by these holy men and women.
Thursday: Go Green Day: Students wear green to focus on environment and how to recycle, reuse and reduce.
Friday: Sport Day: Students wear sports/teams jersey, sweatshirt or t-shirt. Everyone goes to park in the morning and faculty play volleyball with 8th graders at 11:30. The purpose is to focus on sports, physical activities and sportsmanship.
