Catholic Schools Week is a week-long celebration of Catholic schools. Catholic schools have long proven their benefits in academic excellence. Numerous studies over the years have supported this. So why not stop and celebrate it a little?!?!?! This is a special addendum newsletter outlining the Catholic Schools Week activities for the week. Many of these activities are for students only. Those that are open to the parents will be designated as such. Please contact the school with any questions.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK 2020

- First car in the pick-up line for a year

….and many more. A big item up for raffle will be a Toshiba, 50 inch, firetv edition, 4K ultra HD TV. It’s brand new and still in the box. Just in time for the Super Bowl! All students will be given one raffle ticket so everyone can have a chance to win an item. Additional raffle tickets can be ordered for donations of $1 per ticket.
