Diocese celebrates Catholic Schools Week
Catholic schools across the diocese -- and across the nation -- took a week to honor the teachers, staff, students, and parents, who make Catholic schools special.
Here’s what Chaince Schwarts of St. Joseph School in Ellinwood had to say: “... I am 14 years old, and I am an eighth grader at St. Joseph School. My favorite thing about St. Joseph is the lunch because the cooks make wonderful lunches. P.E. is fun because we get to play kick ball. Math and Science are my favorite subjects. In 8th grade science, we are building a rubber band car.”
The theme for this year’s Catholic Schools Week, celebrated Jan. 30 - Feb. 5, was, “A+ For America Catholic Schools.”
Events included everything from spelling bees, to “grandparent days,” to gathering items to donate to charitable causes.
On the next few pages are photos representing just a few of the events held throughout the week.
Editor’s Note: Due to coverage of Bishop John B. Brungardt’s ordination, the Register was unable to attend Catholic Schools Week events this year. The SKR appreciates the Catholic schools for submitting photos for this special section.
Sorry! Photos to come!
