National Catholic Schools Week – January 31st – February 6th
What is National Catholic Schools Week?
National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2016 is January 31- February 6. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2016 is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. 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.
Have you ever thought about a Catholic Education for your child?
Catholic education forms the whole person – intellectually, socially and morally – which in Catholic life means an encounter with the Spirit, message and teachings of Jesus Christ. Catholic education provides academic excellence in a safe, nurturing environment for all our students, enabling them to become productive citizens for today’s society. Catholic education has a long history of transforming society by lifting up new immigrants and providing them with an educational advantage that helps greatly close the achievement gap with their peers.
