Catholic Schools Week

February 4-9, 2018

Sunday, February 4, 2018 begins Catholic Schools Week!  During this week students will celebrate all the positive aspects of attending a Catholic school.  To start things off we will have several of our students do the readings at the 10:30 am Mass on Sunday, February 4, 2018.  We are asking that all students who attend the 10:30 am Mass on February 4 wear their school uniform to show their school pride.  Students who wear their uniform at that Mass are invited to see Mr. Kuester after the Mass in the Fireside room, there is a possibility of a treat!
