National Catholic Schools Week has been celebrated since 1974.  This year it was celebrated from Sunday, January 29 through Saturday, February 4, 2017, and the theme was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.”  3 examples of how we celebrated our faith were:  1) our school students and alumni singing for the 8:00 a.m. Sunday, January 29 Assumption BVM Mass, 2) an All School Prayer Service on Monday morning, January 30, and 3) our weekly school Mass on Thursday, February 2.  2 examples of how we celebrated our knowledge were:  1) the Spelling Bee on Wednesday morning, February 1 and 2) the All School Read on Wednesday afternoon, February 1.  Our Service Project for the week was collecting socks, and treats such as granola bars, Valentine treats, etc. to put inside.  150 pairs of socks were stuffed with treats for St. John’s Homeless Shelter.  Thanks to the generosity of our families and friends, 300 feet will be warm!

Each day, there was a theme for how students and staff could dress.  In addition to the events listed above, we also had the following:  a pep rally led by part of the Pulaski H.S. Marching Band, snow shoeing during Phy. Ed. classes, a game of Bunco for Grades K-5, Jump Rope For Heart Kick Off Assemblies for Grades K-5, Open House on Thursday, February 2 for families and friends, as well as a Buffet Lunch, a Parents vs. 5th Grade students Basketball game, and a Family Dance on Friday night, February 3.

Please take some time to check out all the great pictures from our week of celebration.  NOTE:  If you cannot see the whole picture, click on the small square in the middle and it will bring up the full picture.
