Catholic Schools Week is the celebration of all Catholic schools. According to the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), we have Catholic Schools Week to celebrate the excellence and impact of Catholic schools. Many Catholic schools do things to help out their community and show their appreciation for their founders. Some examples of things that schools do during catholic schools week are:
- Community service
- Sending letters to the church
- Donating objects
- Having food drives
- Having fundraising events
- Volunteer during different events
During the week of Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, our school celebrated Catholic Schools Week by holding a pep rally, making mercy bags, doing a buddy rosary activity, and writing letters to the sisters. An article from Hallow states, “Catholic Schools Week is an annual initiative led by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) to celebrate the excellence and impact of Catholic schools. Each year, Catholic schools observe the celebration through various activities, emphasizing the importance of Catholic education.”
“We wrote letters to the SNJM sisters asking them questions about their Catholicism and some of them responded, which was fun,” says Abby N.
