Catholic Schools Week 2019

Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. The theme for National Catholic Schools Week 2019 is “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”

Throughout this entire week, we encourage all of our families to focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation. Each day of Catholic Schools Week 2019 has a different theme, and we will be using these themes to create fun activities for our students, faculty, and staff to help them celebrate.
